WNAMM11: Retune Your Moog

Moog introduce Phatty Tuner Alternate Scale Editor for the Slim Phatty and Little Phatty      13/01/11
Here's the Moog Music press release...
For decades, Moog instruments have been used by adventurous musicians to map the sonic universe. Now they can be used to explore the more exotic reaches of our own planet. With Moog's Phatty Tuner software, musicians can retune each note of the octave and compose in scales once available only to players of hard-to-find world instruments. Indian, Chinese and Turkish scales are now easily accessible along with Meantone, Pythagorean, Just and other historic and experimental temperaments.
Available for the Slim Phatty and coming soon for the Little Phatty with OS v3.0, this free download makes experimenting with alternate scales a breeze. Tuning data is easily editable and is displayed as a ratio, frequency and in cents. Scala files can be imported and exported for use with other tuning software. An unlimited number of tunings can be saved on your computer and the synthesizer's hardware can store up to thirty-two different tunings; enough to take you around the world and back again.
"The alternate scale capabilities of the Slim Phatty and Little Phatty make Moog's analog synths right at home in everything from Indian ragas and Arabic maqaams to Balinese gamelan scales." said Mike Adams, President of Moog Music. "The world may be a little smaller, but the sound just got a lot bigger."
If your musical explorations actually take you around the world, the Little Phatty and Slim Phatty's convenient size and universal power supplies make them ideal travel partners.
Pricing and Availability:
Software available for free download.
Slim Phatty: $849.00.
