Minitaur Flickr Set

Novamusik has posted some very nice photos of the new Moog Minitaur.

“It’s hard to imagine what else Moog could bring to such a straightforward concept as Minitaur, but members of the company have assured us that they have a very detailed road map sketched out for the instrument over the coming years.” – musicradar.com

Minitaur Videos

The first Moog Minitaurs are reaching people now. As you can see and hear, yes it is a bass synthesizer. Keep in mind Youtube isn’t the best way to really know what bass sounds like.

“Minitaur is a compact and powerful analog bass synthesizer that features a classic one knob per function design.” – moogmusic.com

Animoog

A new Moog synthesizer is here. The Animoog for iPad looks nice, has an X/Y Pad, a “Notes Follow on Screen” function (see video above), Rates & Orbits LFOs, touch keyboard with individual and polyphonic articulation, custom key scales, envelopes you can touch to adjust and more. In my fantasy brain I would have liked a true polyphonic hardware Moog with no controls on it; just a dock for an iPad and some Moog control software. That said, Moog is going what makes sense I think. You have to be in it to win it as they say and touch interface is something they need to cut there teeth on. At a .99 intro rate it also let’s everyone into the Moog world. The bottom line is it’s one of the better pro-audio apps for iOS and a creative tool in the hands of an artist. Download it now: click here

“Animoog is the first professional synthesizer designed for the iPad. Powered by Moog’s new Anisotropic Synthesis Engine, Animoog captures the vast sonic vocabulary of Moog synthesizers and applies it to the moderntouch surface paradigm, enabling any user to quickly sculpt incredibly fluid and dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve as you play them.” – moogmusic.com

Sit back and listen to the birth of the synthesizer.

Chrome Synthesizers

I’m not a low rider rims kinda guy but I love chrome. Chrome plus synthesizers is just plain cool. I like the way it sounds, “Chrome synthesizers.”. Aren’t these pretty?

Dorit Chrysler Moog Sound Lab

I like the production and idea behind Moog’s new Sound Lab series. Dorit plays the Theramin the way I always wanted to see someone “air it”!

“To function as a one woman band, Dorit triggers a prerecorded backtrack on her laptop, adding vocals and theremin in real time. At her feet are a Moogerfooger MF-104Z Analog Delay and an Akai Head Rush looper that add layers of complexity to the sonic depth to her sound.” – David I. Barkoe

Minimoog

Moog launched an awesome new website. It looks way better and is full of videos and artists using Moogs. Check out one of the first videos they posted appropriately showcasing the original Minimoog.

“Moog talks with one of Moog Music’s earliest engineers, Bill Hemsath, who recalls the process of the Minimoog’s birth and sheds some light on what sets the Moog synthesizer apart from other analog synths.” – futuremusic.com
