Produced by Eric Persing, the Bob Moog Tribute library features over 700 stunning new sounds for Omnisphere, Spectrasonics’ flagship synthesizer virtual instrument. 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 (Erasure/Depeche Mode), Jean Michel Jarre, The Crystal Method, Jordan Rudess, Money Mark (Beastie Boys/Beck), Bernie Worrell (P-Funk/Talking Heads), Larry Fast (Peter Gabriel/Synergy), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Air/Fiona Apple), Ryuichi Sakamoto (YMO), Morgan Page (Madonna/Katy Perry), Keith Shocklee (Bomb Squad/Public Enemy), Steve Porcaro (Toto), Fredwreck (Snoop Dogg/50 Cent), Jan Hammer (Jeff Beck/Mahavishnu Orchestra), Michael Boddicker (Michael Jackson), Richard Devine (Aphex Twin), Patrick Moraz (Yes/Moody Blues), Eddie Jobson (UK/Roxy Music), Diego Stocco, Danny Elfman, The Moog Cookbook, and many more.

The state-of-the-art dual-manual OMG-1 combines a Moog Little Phatty analog synthesizer, Spectrasonics’ flagship Omnisphere software synthesizer, a powerful internal Apple Mac Mini computer, dual Apple iPads, dual iPods, and Spectrasonics’ brand-new Omni TR iPad app – all integrated into a beautiful, hand-crafted curly maple cabinet created by American artisan Daniel Auon.

Contestants vying to win the OMG-1 buy and download the $100 “Bob Moog Tribute Library” for Omnisphere, then write one or more pieces of music utilizing the sounds from the library. The deadline for submission is July 15, 2011. The music will be judged by members of the Spectrasonics team and artists who contributed to the library. Numerous additional prizes for runner-ups will be presented when the contest winners are announced on September 15th, 2011. The OMG-1 grand prize will be presented by Eric Persing to the contest winner at the 2011 “MoogFest” in October in Asheville, NC; Spectrasonics will be flying the winner to the event.

Droomusic Dr. Bob’s Modular, sample library for Kontakt

Droomusic Dr. Bobs Modular

Droomusic has released Dr. Bob’s Modular, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Dr. Bob’s Modular Sample Library is a collection of sounds that combine classic vintage synthesizer technology with the latest cutting-edge sampling programs.

A System 15 modular controlled by an Encore Electronics Expressionist was programmed and sampled using Redmatica’s suite of sample-capture and processing tools. A Moog CP-251 was used to expand the palette of the original synthesizer and allow for greater control options. Those raw sounds were then processed and mapped using Native Instruments Kontakt’s powerful synthesis capabilities. These sounds are inspired by the works of pioneering synthesists like Isao Tomita, Wendy Carlos, Larry Fast, and Jean Michel Jarre.

Dr. Bob’s Modular for Kontakt 3.1+ is available to purchase for $50 USD. Individual sets are priced at $10 USD each. 50% or your purchase price goes directly to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

Arturia Minimoog V v2.0

Arturia has released version 2.0 of Minimoog V, a virtual Minimoog synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

From the starship funk lead lines of the 70’s, to the gangster whine of mid 90’s hip-hop, the ever present minimoog has been making its phat presence felt for over 3 decades. In partnership with Bob Moog, we decided to reproduce the legendary interface with the same look and feel than the original because of its particular “mood”, and because many musicians wish to use the same interface they used in the past. But the reproduction of this synthesizer does not stop to the look and feel, we also recreated its inside characteristics…

Minimoog V features

  • All the parameters of the original minimoog V.
  • Advanced automation mode (Minimoog V 2.0 Only).
  • Revolutionary preset navigation system called the SoundMap (Minimoog V 2.0 Only).
  • New formant-analysis-based FX called the Vocal Filter (Minimoog V 2.0 Only).
  • New Chorus and Stereo Delay Effect section.
  • More than 500 presets created by talented artists and sound designers.
  • Lots more.

Minimoog V v2.0 is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) for $249 USD/229 EUR. A 15-day trial version is available for download here.
