Spectrasonics updates Bob Moog Tribute Library

Spectrasonics has updated its Bob Moog Tribute Library for Omnisphere with new patches.

Spectrasonics Bob Moog Tribute Library
Spectrasonics adds 78 patches to the Tribute library in celebration of Bob Moog’s birthday.

To celebrate the anniversary of Bob Moog’s 78th birthday, Spectrasonics have released 78 brand new Omnisphere patches for the Bob Moog Tribute Library! With the addition of the new ‘birthday’ patches created by Producer Eric Persing, the library now features over 800 stunning sounds for Omnisphere, the company’s flagship synthesizer.

The new patches are a continuation of the tribute to honor the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog and support the ongoing work of the Bob Moog Foundation. In 2011 Spectrasonics produced the Tribute library with the generosity and creative talents of many renowned synthesizer artists, and has been a huge success in benefiting the Foundation allowing them to expand their educational outreach programs. 100% of the proceeds from the “Bob Moog Tribute Library” go to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

“The stunning sonic offerings of the Bob Moog Tribute Library have helped generate unprecedented support for our mission. We are delighted to see Spectrasonics celebrating Bob’s birthday by expanding the musical landscape once again.” said Michelle Moog-Koussa, executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation.

The sounds in the library were created by more than 40 of the world’s top synth artists, remixers and sound designers, including Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke, Jean Michel Jarre, The Crystal Method, Jordan Rudess, Money Mark, Bernie Worrell, Larry Fast, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., Ryuichi Sakamoto, Morgan Page, Keith Shocklee, Steve Porcaro, Fredwreck, Jan Hammer, Michael Boddicker, Richard Devine, Patrick Moraz, Eddie Jobson, Diego Stocco, Danny Elfman, The Moog Cookbook, and many more.

The Bob Moog Tribute Library’s 2.4GB of Soundsources were developed using highly creative processing techniques-often with exotic gear like rare Buchla Modulars, Jarre’s EMS Synthi AKS, Zimmer’s massive Modular Moog and even Persing’s one of a kind OMG-1 Synthesizer. With so many different world-class artists contributing, the library is very rich in style and filled with inspiring, cutting edge sounds.

The Bob Moog Tribute Library is available to purchase for $100 USD. Existing Tribute Library customers can download the new patches for free from the Omnisphere updates area.

Moog Music lowers price on Little Phatty II in celebration of Bob Moog’s 78th birthday

Moog has announced that for a limited time the Little Phatty Stage II synthesizer will be available to purchase at a lower price in honor of Bob Moog’s 78th birthday.

Synthesizer pioneer Robert A. Moog was born in New York City on May 23rd, 1934. Now, 78 years later, Moog Music, the company founded by Dr. Moog, continues a fresh celebration of his life and innovative spirit. This week in downtown Asheville, NC, a new mural was unveiled on the building that bears his name. To continue this celebration, today Moog Music announced a special price on Bob Moog’s final synthesizer design: the Little Phatty analog monosynth.

Moog Little Phatty IIMoog Little Phatty II analog mono syntheszizer.

“All of our customers and everyone at Moog Music celebrate Bob’s genius every day,” said Moog Music CEO, Michael Adams. “Bob inspired so many others to create, to design, to play, and to dream. It’s an honor for all of us here at Moog to carry on that legacy. We do it by honoring his vision, designing products that proudly carry his name, and by supporting the Bob Moog Foundation.”

“Before Bob’s passing in 2005, he was working on a brand new analog synthesizer design. His goal was to create a more affordable, high quality analog synthesizer. He succeeded, and that synthesizer would eventually become known as the Little Phatty. In honor of Bob’s birthday, we have decided to roll back the price on the Little Phatty to its original street price of $1,195. We hope that the many musicians out there who have always dreamed of owning a Moog will take advantage of this opportunity, and begin exploring a world Bob created with this amazing instrument,” said Adams.

The Little Phatty Stage II will be available for $1,195 through US authorized dealers until June, 30 2012. Additionally, On May 23rd Moog Music is donating 50% of its website clothing and merchandise sales to the Bob Moog Foundation along with a Moog Etherwave Theremin for every $350 in cash donated.

Celemony celebrates 10 year annivesary with prize draw

Celemony 10+10 Birthday Box

Celemony has announced its 10 year anniversary, offering an opportunity to win 10 years of Celemony’s future.

We’ve been around now for 10 years; and so, for 10 years, has Melodyne. We would like to express our thanks with ten of the legendary wooden boxes in which the first Melodyne was delivered. Each box contains a license for Melodyne editor, for Melodyne studio and for all Celemony software products released in the next 10 years. Whoever gets a box will receive all the software products and updates released by Celemony until the year 2020 free of charge.

To participate in the prize draw, all you have to do is leave us a birthday greeting. Starting now: in our Forum, on our Facebook wall, or on our MySpace page—whichever you like. Three people whose names are drawn from among those leaving greetings will each receive one of the ten boxes. We are most looking forward, naturally, to greetings with a touch of originality—a short film, a Melodyne anecdote, a poem or something of that kind. The fourth box will go to the person who comes up with the best greeting, selected by our jury. The closing date for entries is the 16th January 2011, the last day of the NAMM Show, where Melodyne was presented for the first time 10 years ago.*

So here you go:

Coupon code: hugosbirthday2010

Goldbaby has also announced there will not be any ReFills for The Fat Juno-6 or Fatso Synth Vol 1, as the limitations of NNXT have made the job of looping complex stereo samples nigh impossible.

Furthermore, the MS20 project is postponed due to synth repair, but another project is underway:

It’s based on a famous analog drum machine. It will be Round Robin – 96 or 44.1 khz samples! Lots of analog processing. Sounds amazing so far! Stay tuned.

Lab3 Arduino Sine wave Generator

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Arduino Sine wave Generator using the DDS Method

From Lab3:

Here we describe how to generate sine waves with an Arduino board in a very accurate way . Almost no additional hardware is required. The frequency range reaches form zero to 16 KHz with a resolution of a millionth part of one Hertz ! Distortions can be kept less than one percent on frequencies up to 3 KHz. This technique is not only useful for music and sound generation another range of application is test equipment or measurement instrumentation. Also in telecommunication the DDS Method is useful for instance in frequency of phase modulation (FSK PSK).

# Gruss Loops – Volume VII is here!

Ryan writes:

I’m happy to announce that the wait is finally over. Gruss Loops Volume VII is now available! With some major studio upgrades at Gruss Headquarters over the past month, I think you’ll be able to hear the enriched sonic textures that only a few thousand dollars made out to Steve Jobs can bring. If you put your mouth against the speakers, you might even be able to taste it.

# Waveformless: Free Sample Friday: Vocoded Drums

Most of my American readers probably have today off, but regardless, the weekend is almost here! So here's a small set of 16 drum sounds sent through a vocoder for your downloading enjoyment… All samples are 24-bit/44.1k.

little-scale Novation Laundpad

# little-scale Novation Launchpad – Sebastian uses Max/MSP to create a linear sequencer, ripple sequencer and waveform editor for the Novation Launchpad.

Today I made a simple ripple-based sequencer for the Novation Launchpad. The idea is simple. By pressing a grid button, a yellow, square ripple is created that emanates from the point that was touched. By holding down a modifier button and pressing a grid button, static, red points are created. Each red point represents a musical note. Whenever a given yellow ripple intersects (touches) a red point, the sequencer plays a note.

# Endless loop: A brief history of chiptunes

By Kevin Driscoll, Joshua Diaz. The abstract:

Chiptune refers to a collection of related music production and performance practices sharing a history with video game soundtracks. The evolution of early chiptune music tells an alternate narrative about the hardware, software, and social practices of personal computing in the 1980s and 1990s. By digging into the interviews, text files, and dispersed ephemera that have made their way to the Web, we identify some of the common folk-historical threads among the commercial, noncommercial, and ambiguously commercial producers of chiptunes with an eye toward the present-day confusion surrounding the term chiptune. Using the language of affordances and constraints, we hope to avoid a technocratic view of the inventive and creative but nevertheless highly technical process of creating music on computer game hardware.
