Vintage Minimoog Model D Signed by Herb Deutsch - Bob Moog Foundation 2022 Raffle

video upload by moogfoundation

"Get your raffle tickets: here

In celebrating the 90th birthday of pioneering synthesist Herb Deutsch, the Bob Moog Foundation is excited to announce its fundraising raffle for a fully-restored vintage Minimoog Model D signed by the legend himself.

The Minimoog featured is serial number 11,535, built at Moog Music’s Cheektowaga, NY factory during the late 1970s. It has an estimated value of $10,000. Due to the highly coveted nature of this archetypal synthesizer, and the iconic signature from Herb Deutsch, it is likely to increase in value. This Minimoog has been meticulously restored by revered synthesizer technician Wes Taggart of Analogics, who also crafted its new custom walnut cabinet enclosure. It is in excellent technical and physical condition.

The raffle begins on February 9th, to commemorate Deutsch’s 90th birthday, and serves as an homage to his seminal contributions to the Moog legacy. It ends on March 7, 2022, 11:59pm ET, or when all 4,500 tickets sell out, whichever comes first. Tickets are $20 each, six for $100, 14 for $200, or 40 for $500.

Funds raised from the raffle will be used to expand the Foundation’s hallmark educational project, Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool, which has inspired over 20,000 elementary school students through the science of sound. The raffle will also help support the Moogseum, an immersive, experiential facility located in Asheville, NC, which brings Bob Moog’s pioneering legacy and the science of sound and synthesis alive for people of all ages. The Moogseum, which opened in late May of 2019, has welcomed over 14,000 visitors from all over the world, despite significant challenges due to the pandemic.

Jewel Runner 49 encapsulates the retro analog vibes of the eccentric Gem Sprinter 49. This Italian synthesizer was introduced to the market by the Galanti Group in 1970. It featured a 49-key keyboard, built-in speaker and drum/rhythm machine, as well as a variety of buttons and faders to control layer volume, instrument type, automagic accompaniment, and tempo. Our library includes synth sustains, staccatos, and 16 tempo-syncable drum machine loops dialed in from the organ. We recorded the instrument articulations in wide stereo and direct line in. After that, we crafted 20 evolving ambient pads from the source content to boost usability, and 20 custom FX presets to kickstart your next composition. Jewel Runner 49 presents a tasty sampler platter of a classic combo organ, complete with warm tonal flavors ready to complement any genre of music.

We’ve packed the GUI with lots of great sound-shaping controls that give you the flexibility to warp the sound in many ways. You have control over Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering. The "Glide" control slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. You’ll also find an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 13 lowpass, high-pass and FX filter, with assignable modulation control options, including velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration.

The patch is a Quantum Harmonic Oscillator, which is the quantum-mechanical analog of the pendulum or classic harmonic oscillator."

Genius Teaser part 2
video upload by Rebel Technology

"New Eurorack module coming soon from Rebel Technology.

This patch uses physical modelling to simulate two church bells, one French and one English. Both bells, each measuring 1 meter tall, were first modelled in 3D using CAD software. The 3D mesh was then used to generate a modal model.

The resulting simulation can be struck in different positions, with different sharpness and damping of the strike. Subsequent strikes interact like in a real bell to produce very complex modulated harmonics.

The bell models are part of the Faust Physical Modelling toolkit, created by Romain Michon, which you can read more about here:"

Gain Switch Multi: User Guide - Easy Access to Overdrive on AJH Ladder Filter & Cascaded VCA

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Here's how to use the Gain Switch Multi module with the Transistor Ladder Filter, Discrete Cascaded VCA, and Gemini 2412 VCF. With the Ladder Filter and VCA it allows convenient access to the gain jumpers on the back of the module, so that you can simply turn on and off the increased gain level feature, and add musical overdrive to your sound - this simulates the old Minimoog trick of connecting the headphone out put to the audio input to add some desirable distortion to leads etc. With the Gemini, the module will connect to it's two jumpers which determine the resonance available on each of it's two filters - the normal SEM-style level of resonance, or a much higher level, allowing either or both of the filters to self-oscillate.

Also there's a passive 6-way multiple to further make use of it's tiny 2hp Eurorack footprint.

still trying to love the OP-1 in 2022

video upload by

"Another wee late night jam with the OP-1. I've been attempting to make a lot more use of it lately, and try explore some of the areas that I haven't made much use of - or at least combine different features in different ways, because I am still undecided on whether I love it enough to justify the price tag or not. There's no doubt that it's great fun to use, but is it worth the big ticket value? Erh, I mean, probably not - but when will I get over that?! Maybe never. Probably. It's a curse."
