Moog launches 500 Series Analog Delay

Moog Analog Delay

Moog Music has introduced the Moog Analog Delay, the world’s first delay designed exclusively for the 500 series format.

It is a MIDI syncable module that features a 100% analog signal path, front panel MIDI, and an assignable Tap Tempo/CV jack. Included with each unit is a free VST/AU/RTAS editor for easy implementation into any recording, live, and performance situation.

Out of the box you get 800ms of the warmest, and most musical delay on the planet. No emulation plugin can impart depth and life into your mixes like the Analog Delay.

The Analog Delay has been designed with tone, connectivity, and flexibility at the forefront. Moog’s engineering team worked tirelessly to deliver a 500 Series module with an incredibly clean front end that could easily pushed into a warm, natural overdrive for saturated delay trails or beyond for more distorted effects.

Though not on the front panel, the Analog Delay features a 6 Waveshape LFO that allows you to create other time based effects such as tape delay, chorus and extreme modulated sounds. The LFO can be easily accessed via MIDI or the free VST/AU/RTAS Analog Delay plug-in editor.

Also accessible via the editor are advanced features like Tap/CV input routing, Keyboard Control settings, Clock Divisions and a Delay Multiplier for access to illegal times up to 4x the front panel position. The Tap/CV input also can be fed audio from a click track to act as a tap tempo source.

The 500 series Analog Delay combines the sound of the ultimate analog delay with convenient digital control and flexibility to create the perfect recording and live sound tool.

Moog Analog Delay features

  • 40-800ms Analog Delay Time.
  • .5x/1.0x time and filter switch.
  • 32dB of input Drive.
  • Assignable ¼” Tap Tempo and CV input.
  • MIDI control.
  • 6 Waveshape LFO.
  • Free VST/AU/RTAS editor (AAX coming soon).
  • Stereo Linkable.

The Analog Delay will be shipping in December 2012. It is now available to pre-order for $999 USD.

reFX releases FX and (free) Halloween expansions for Nexus2 + 2.4.0 update now available

reFX FX and Halloween Expansions

reFX has released FX and Halloween expansion libraries for its Nexus2 rompler synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

With FX, Nexus provides sound effects, the essence of modern productions! 150+ state-of-the-art effect presets by Manuel Schleis. Great for electronic music genres, plus movie FX and trailers. Complex sounds with easy user controls. Try out the up/down lifters, impact hits, booms, drones, atmospheres, swooshes, slides, fx loops and arps. This is a great, all-inclusive package!

Halloween — Bats, Cats, Mad scientists and even the Count himself make an appearance in this free mini-expansion for all Nexus2 customers. You can find it in your purchase-history along the required 2.4.0 update. Happy Halloween.

reFX has also updated Nexus2 to version 2.4.0, including faster loading times.

Changes in Nexus v2.4.0

  • Most presets load about twice as fast now! If you have a fast SSD, loading times are mostly instantenous, even with bigger presets.
  • The mix-page had to be changed slightly. The oscillators are now on their own tab to make room for four additional layers (for a total of eight now) and four additional oscillators (also a total of eight now). Future exansions will utilize this. The free “Halloween”-Expansion already does this!
  • The support-file now detects Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 correctly.
  • Re-enabled the Live section. From now on updates are downloaded again.
  • Removed invisible, but audible, MIDI-CC #7 and CC #11. A few users unintentionally used these and thus changed the output-volume.
  • Fixed: Arp-glide was sometimes unintentionally enabled for some sequences at certain speeds and tempo.
  • Fixed: The reverb would flutter very lightly under very specific circumstances and only with VERY low frequencies.
  • Fixed: Minor bug-fixes and optimizations.

Nexus2 is available to purchase for 249 EUR. The FX expansion is 55 EUR, the Halloween expansion can be downloaded at no charge.
