Spectrasonics releases new sounds for the Bob Moog Tribute Library 28/05/12
To celebrate the anniversary of Bob Moog's 78th birthday, Spectrasonics have released 78 brand new Omnisphere patches for the Bob Moog Tribute Library. They tell us that, 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.
Spectrasonics tells us that 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.
Michelle Moog-Koussa, executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation, had this to say, "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."
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. Spectrasonics says that, with so many different world-class artists contributing, the library is very rich in style and filled with inspiring, cutting edge sounds. Pricing and Availability:
