Kraftwerk, David Bowie, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Stanley Kubrick are but a few of the artists who used, twisted and turned the dials to make some of the most biggest-selling pop music and films to date with one thing at the core – Moog. The synthesizer that changed generation-upon-generation of music.
And so it is no wonder why people are gathering in Ithaca, New York to perform, present and discuss all things Moog, on Saturday 16th May 2015.
An unprecedented listening session and discussion will take place with composer and co-inventor of the Moog synthesizer Herb Deutsch and Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation, after playing Dr. Moog’s 1964 audio letter to Deutsch, including the first ever recorded sounds played on a Moog synthesizer. Performances on the theremin, which was Robert Moog’s first inception, is an electronic instrument controlled without physical contact, which must be seen to be believed, will follow.
Companies such as Native Instruments have even closely modelled synthesizer VSTs in music software – such are the influential sounds of this ingenious pioneer.
We have recently shipped in five Sub 37s, which is the first time they have been available without pre-ordering since January 2014.
The Sub 37 Tribute Edition is a limited edition (2-note) paraphonic analog synthesizer built on the award winning Sub Phatty sound engine. Its panel features 40 knobs, 74 switches, and has a dedicated LCD display - placing each critical sound creation element and live performance tool quickly at your command.
