Left: Executive Director, Michelle Moog-Koussa, poses for a picture with Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music alongside Herb Deutsch's R.A. Moog Minimoog at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas.

"The Bob Moog Foundation's Executive Director, Michelle Moog-Koussa, and Board of Advisors member Francis Preve recently attended the opening of the Music America: Iconic Objects from America's Music History exhibit at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas to celebrate the inclusion of a rare R.A. Moog Minimoog from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.

The R.A. Moog Minimoog, which belonged to electronic music pioneer Herb Deutsch, is serial number 1094 and is one of only 210 R.A. Moog Minimoogs to have been manufactured. The synthesizer was given to Herb by Bob Moog in 1971.

The rare Minimoog synthesizer was chosen to represent Bob Moog's indelible legacy as someone who created instruments that revolutionized the face of music by bringing a brand new palette of sounds to the performing musician, as well as honor Herb Deutsch for the significant role he played in the development of synthesizers and electronic music.

Other objects in the exhibit include: Thomas Edison's wax cylinders, Jimi Hendrix's guitar, Janis Joplin's pants and letters, Dizzy Gillespie's trumpet, Arlo Gurthrie's hand-written song lyrics, and much more.

The exhibit will be at the LBJ Presidential Library from now until August 11, 2024. It will then travel to four other presidential libraries over a two-year period."

And the raffle:

"We are excited to announce that thanks to IK Multimedia, everyone who purchases a ticket for our Moog Source raffle will receive a download code for the Syntronik 2 Sorcerer!

Normally priced at $49, the Syntronik 2 Sorcerer is a virtual synthesizer built by Erik Norlander using the exact Moog Source being raffled. Following the end of the raffle on February 26th, all ticket purchasers will receive an email with download instructions.

The Source, serial number 3948, is an excellent condition vintage synthesizer signed by Bob Moog. It features rich sound quality and a technical lineage rooted in the legendary Minimoog. The Source is lauded for its sequencers, sample and hold, arpeggiator, presets, unique data wheel, and patch memory storage. The synthesizer features a mylar touch control panel, single-knob functionality, and the trademark Moog sound.

Tickets for the raffle are $20 each, 6 for $100, 14 for $200, and 40 for $500. The raffle is open internationally.

As an added bonus for this raffle only, get a free 2024 Bob Moog - His Life and Work 90th Birthday Commemorative Calendar when you purchase a bundle of 6, 14, or 40 tickets.

Future-Retro VECTRA Giveaway

Future-Retro is having a drawing to give a way a VECTRA on Oct 1st.

You can find full details on how to enter on their site here:

"The Vectra is a unique hybrid synthesizer with a flexible architecture that allows many different forms of synthesis to be realized. It’s the best of both worlds… The Vectra utilizes digital oscillators, ring modulators, noise sources, vector mixer, LFO’s, complex envelopes, and modulation routings providing many capabilities that would be very difficult to produce with analog circuitry alone. This allows for accurate tuning, repeatability of complex patches, and patch storage. The Vectra also provides a multi-mode analog filter, VCA, and final output, as these provide the best sonic qualities.
The Vectra includes a powerful and fun sequencer and arpeggiator, with many new capabilities. Although the Vectra is a self contained instrument, MIDI can be used to interface with other devices."

You can find a few demos of the Future-Retro VECTRA in previous posts here.

The Touring Musician's Dream Synth? +GIVEAWAY (USA)

video upload by HAINBACH

"Thanks to @PerfectCircuit for sponsoring this video and giving away an OP-1 Field to one of my treasured viewers (US residents only). Follow the instructions in this link (live at 10 AM Pacific) to enter the contest:

I did not like the OP-1 Field at first glance. I travelled around the world with my ten year old battered original OP-1 and played it in countless shows, songs, and soundtracks. I used it like a Swiss Army knife - at home I have instruments that do each individual job better, but on the road the OP-1 is a wonderful combination of tools. It became one of my most important instruments. When the newest iteration came around it felt strange - I was very attached to my OP-1, so I did not want to give the Field a real chance. But when I took it with me on tour and travels over the past months, that changed."

David Rosenthal, Billy Joel's keyboardist/musical director, talks about the 2022 summer raffle Mini

"The Minimoog raffled in 2022 isn’t just signed by an icon: It belonged to Billy Joel’s musical director, a musician of note in his own right – keyboardist, synth programmer, and orchestrator David Rosenthal, formerly of Rainbow, who has toured with Cyndi Lauper, Robert Palmer, and Enrique Iglesias, programmed synths for Bruce Springsteen, and also worked with Happy the Man, Steve Vai and Red Dawn.
Video recorded at Strange Cranium in NYC.

"This summer, somebody's going to win a fully restored, vintage Minimoog signed by Billy Joel.

It's a good month when Tom Oberheim joins your team of supporters, and Billy Joel signs your Minimoog. It's still pretty crazy out there, but with Tom, Billy, and a network of supporters engaging in our mission to inspire people of all ages through the intersection of science, music, and technology, we feel ready to take on the world.

This vintage beauty belonged to Billy Joel's long-time keyboardist and musical director, David Rosenthal, who took it on tour with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow in the 1980s.

It now bears the signature of one of the most beloved and best-selling entertainers of all time.

Somebody's going to win it for the cost of a raffle ticket."

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.
