Sound Diary: May 2024 // Dictaphones & Expressive Instruments


video upload by Michael Manning

Performance starts at 8:36.

"This video is something I've been thinking about making for a while, creating a home for the music I write that sits outside of an album or soundtrack. Instead of aimlessly uploading jams and performances, I'm contextualising them with my thoughts and process more directly.

For this episode, I talk about some of the instruments I've been using to write with including the Erica Synths Dada Noise System 2, Haken Continuum Mini, Expressive-E Osmose and Battery Operated Mini Mello.

Designing A Case For Percussion // Eurorack with SP404 & Digitakt


video upload by Michael Manning

"My new album: https://sovnrecords.bandcamp.com/albu...

In this video I talk through my process of using a small ALM 52hp Eurorack Case to expand my percussion options within a setup. It is driven via a Digitakt which feeds into an African rhythm derived trigger module. Everything is then fed into an SP404.

This is the basis for my attempt at creating and performing live music. In the future I hope to show more developments into this process and eventually film a live set for this channel."

Making Noise With 0Coast // SFX & Music


video upload by Michael Manning

"In this video I show why I think the Make Noise 0Coast is the best piece of hardware to learn and experiment with modular synthesis. I show an overview of the instrument before then applying it towards making SFX for a 2D video game I'm making, showing my sound design process and some more advanced tips and tricks."

Analogue Solutions Ample Review


video upload by Michael Manning

"Ample is a new synth by renowned designer Tom Carpenter of Analogue Solutions. I would describe it as being quintessentially Analogue Solutions. It has that iconic, luxurious sound that has carried through every machine Tom has created, this time coming with a particularly beautiful LPF and an array of generous interface and performance controls.

I spent a month with this on loan from AS and enjoyed my time with it. While possibly not my favourite AS synth (that for me is the Impulse Command), this is certainly a synth worth your attention if you're a fan of vintage tones bursting with vibrancy and soul."

CHORUS EXPANDED! Stereo BBD Juno style Chorus for Eurorack // SoundForce Chorus 6 & µChorus 6


video upload by DivKid

"Here we have a video packed with audio examples of not only the Chorus 6 and µChorus 6 from SoundForce but lots of examples of how to use Chorus and how to expand on the basic uses.

This video includes lots of patches with the DivKid Community music and patches! I asked my Patreon supporters to send in their audio that they’d like to hear through these modules and they sent in a great range of audio, all credited below and in the timing index. Thank you for the general support and thank you for the great audio to work with.

The Chorus 6 and µChorus 6 are both based on the classic Roland Juno series synths and they feature the same audio path as those originals. It’s a stereo array of MN3009 BBDs with basic mode control on the micro version and more expanded fully featured LFO, CV control and externally modulated options of the larger module."

Rather Have the Story podcast - ROGER MANNING: Pt1 (Beck, Jellyfish, Moog Cookbook, etc!)

video upload by Rather Have the Story - The RHS podcast

"The one, the only (almost, we discuss this) ROGER MANNING.

Incredibly talented and positive soul, RJMJ joins us for a great chat about music stuff. Great stories of digging for the then-unwanted "old keyboards" and what one does with them...

Join us for Part 1 (of likely 647 more episodes where RJMJ will return).

You will hear about vocal harmonies, classic arranging, French music, Beck, Jellyfish, and not much else - because we have a lot more to come when he returns later (like Lickerish Quartet, Imperial Drag, The Moog Cookbook, Load, Malibu, TV Eyes, Roger Joseph Manning Jr, Morrissey, Blink 192... and on and on.)

The Was Not Was song we discuss was finally released nearly 15 years later, on their Boo! album. That track is "From the Head to the Heart" - hear it here in finished form. String quartet, Orchestron Cello, Mellotron flutes! https://youtu.be/FnnU2Cx3w9s"

MOOG SOUND LAB Season 2: Twin Shadow


YouTube Uploaded by MoogMusicInc on Feb 2, 2012
Re-Published on Jun 23, 2012 GreeneSigns·10 videos

"Twin Shadow graced us with a Mooged out version of "Castle in the Snow" from their album Forget.

Twin Shadow AKA George Lewis Jr. deftly plays the Moog Guitar, utilizing the patented sustaining power to float cascading melodic lines across the soundscape. Lewis' guitar and vocals are running through the Analog Delay Moogerfooger.

Keyboardist Wynne Bennett uses the Little Phatty to lay down a fat rumbling bass line throughout the song with her left hand. With her right hand she plays a Minimoog Voyager XL, which is MIDI controlling Moog's new synthesizer iPad app, Animoog enabling her to play polyphonically.

Bass player Russell Manning plays the Moog Guitar, using the control pedal to sweep the cutoff of the guitar's internal ladder filter, to create a wah-like effect that adds a funky dub feel interwoven with the percussion.

Michael Hutcherson plays a Minimoog Old School Voyager, layering haunting soundscapes and filter sweeps throughout the song.

Drummer Andy Bauer is playing three Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts as percussion instruments, triggering each one separately using the Trap-Kat XL drum pads. Each drum sound is a Minimoog Voyager preset that was specifically sculpted to envelop the track.

New Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere Library and Contest to Win Custom OMG-1 Synth to Raise Funds for the Foundation

ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA — MARCH 21, 2011 — The Bob Moog Foundation today announced that music software developer Spectrasonics has launched a unique, multi-faceted tribute to honor the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog. Spectrasonics has released the “Bob Moog Tribute Library” created by renowned artists for Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere® virtual instrument software, and also kicked off a contest designed around the library, where participants enter to win the one-of-a-kind “OMG-1” hardware synthesizer created by Spectrasonics’ Founder, Eric Persing. 100% of the proceeds from this Tribute go to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

Spectrasonics’ Bob Moog Tribute library features over 700 stunning new sounds for Omnisphere, Spectrasonics’ flagship synthesizer, and was produced by Persing. The sounds in the new library were created by more than 40 of the world's top synth artists, remixers and sound designers, including Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke (Erasure/Depeche Mode), Jean Michel Jarre, The Crystal Method, Jordan Rudess, Money Mark (Beastie Boys/Beck), Bernie Worrell (P-Funk/Talking Heads), Larry Fast (Peter Gabriel/Synergy), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Air/Fiona Apple), Ryuichi Sakamoto (YMO), Morgan Page (Madonna/Katy Perry), Keith Shocklee (Bomb Squad/Public Enemy), Steve Porcaro (Toto), Fredwreck (Snoop Dogg/50 Cent), Jan Hammer (Jeff Beck/Mahavishnu Orchestra), Michael Boddicker (Michael Jackson), Richard Devine (Aphex Twin), Patrick Moraz (Yes/Moody Blues), Eddie Jobson (UK/Roxy Music), Diego Stocco, Danny Elfman, The Moog Cookbook, and many more.

“Through this stunning Tribute Library, Eric Persing's passion for sonic innovation is manifested in a multi-layered homage to Bob Moog's pioneering work and legacy,” said Michelle Moog-Koussa, executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation. “That passion is continued through the myriad of synthesists and sound designers who have participated by donating sonic tributes in the way of patches and sounds. The Bob Moog Foundation is deeply grateful to Eric, Spectrasonics and the participating musicians for the creativity and generosity that has driven this project. Without a doubt, the funding generated from the Tribute Library will be a tremendous help in driving our mission forward.”

The grand prize in Spectrasonics’ contest, the OMG-1 hardware synthesizer, was designed by Persing as a live performance instrument and is not a commercial product — it’s truly one-of-a-kind, integrating the worlds of analog synthesis, computers, software synthesis and the latest multi-touch surfaces into one extraordinary instrument. The state-of-the-art dual manual OMG-1 combines a Moog Little Phatty® analog synthesizer, Spectrasonics’ flagship Omnisphere software synthesizer, a powerful internal Apple Mac Mini computer, dual Apple iPads®, dual iPods®, and Spectrasonics’ brand-new Omni TR™ iPad app — all integrated into a beautiful, hand-crafted curly maple cabinet created by American artisan Daniel Auon.

Contestants vying to win the OMG-1 buy and download the $100 “Bob Moog Tribute Library" for Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere software, then write one or more pieces of music utilizing the sounds from the library. The deadline for submission is July 15, 2011. Spectrasonics will be flying the contest winner to the October 2011 “MoogFest” in Asheville, NC, where Eric Persing will present the OMG-1 grand prize to the winner.
