Bob Moog Summer Raffle for a Memorymoog Plus & Science of Synthesis Summer Camps!

via The Bob Moog Foundation

"Summer is full of all kinds of wonderful treats, and the subject of our raffle is no exception.

We are excited to be launching our summer raffle for a vintage Memorymoog Plus synthesizer in excellent technical and physical condition. As you know by now, our raffles provide both a very lucky winner with an extraordinary synthesizer as well as providing the Bob Moog Foundation with important funding for our hallmark education project, Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, and for the preservation of the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.

Read more about the Memorymoog Plus and enter to win the raffle here.

In addition to the long list of the unique functionality of the Memorymoog, the Memorymoog Plus differs from the original model by its added features of a MIDI interface, sequencer, and enhanced oscillator stability. Its lauded sonic power comes from the three oscillators per each of the six voices, resulting in a staggering total of 18 oscillators! It also boasts six amps, six filters, 12 ADSR envelopes, and has an estimated value of $10,000.

As if all of that wasn't enough, the karma factor on this instrument is extremely high. Many thanks to Lee Keeley who donated the Memorymoog Plus to us, and to synth tech extraordinaire Wes Taggart, who donated his careful restoration of the instrument. Your support has made this raffle possible!

And on the Science of Synthesis Summer Camps:

"Our First Science of Synthesis Summer Camps!

The Bob Moog Foundation has spent the past six years educating almost 10,000 elementary school children about the science of sound through our hallmark educational project Dr. Bob's SoundSchool. This summer we expanded on that effort and by providing two weeks of summer camp to middle school students who spent every day learning about the science of synthesis at the Asheville Museum of Science's STEM Lab.

The interactive camp, taught by former Moog Music engineer August Worley, introduced the basic principles of synthesis through synthesizers, oscilloscopes, custom educational materials, and through small synthesizer components developed by littleBits.

The curriculum that we created for the camps is our first step in developing a Dr. Bob's SoundSchool program for grades 6-8. Thank you for your continued support as we grow this important educational initiative!

Hope your summer has been full of sound, exploration, and discovery, too!"
