With this donation to the Bob Moog Foundation, Propellerhead wishes to help pay tribute to the enormous contribution Bob Moog made to the music industry. The Foundationâ€™s overall mission is to document, celebrate and teach innovative thinking and to support and honor the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Moog. Presently, the Foundation seeks to raise awareness and funds to preserve Moogâ€™s extensive archives.
Industry proâ€™s (and Reason experts), Craig Anderton, Mark Vail and Gordon Reid, donated their best Moog-style patches, built using Reasonâ€™s Thor polysonic synthesizer, with the aim to shed some light onto the world of music synthesis that Bob Moog pioneered. Those patches have been assembled into a single Reason ReFill and are available free to registered Reason users on Propellerheadâ€™s website.
Ernst Nathorst-BÃ¶Ã¶s, Propellerhead Software CEO, told us, â€œOur hearts and souls are rooted in music synthesis. Bob Moog blazed the trail of electronic music synthesis and revolutionized music with his instruments. We urge the Reason community, in fact anyone who has ever used a sawtooth waveform, to reach out and help safeguard Bobâ€™s legacy for future generations by donating to the organization.â€�
