Arturia iMini

Posted on 28 February 2013 by diode

I fired up the app store today on my ipad, typed in “moog” and surprisingly found a new offering: the iMini from Arturia. Famous for their line of plug-in and standalone soft synths for Mac and PC, Arturia have carved a nice place for themselves in the sythesizer market. The iMini doesn’t dissapoint. It’s UI is rendered beautifully, it sounds great, features nice additions like delay and chorus …and it’s $9.99. A minimoog for 10 bucks (well not a real one but what do you expect!)
Young musicians are spoiled these days to have access to such high quality, low priced tools. As a teenager, I remember drooling over an 8-track cassete portastudio that was $1200. Way out of my price range at that age. Anyhow, it’s a great little synth! Check it out… a portion of each sale goes to the Bob Moog Foundation

They also introduced a new lower cost Phatty. The sub phatty. With it’s new distortion circuit, it sounds downright nasty.

Moog debuts Tarus III pedals at NAMM 2010

Posted on 20 January 2010 by diode

moog_taurus2

Moog was showing off their newly unveiled update of the Taurus bass pedals. They looked great in person and it seems as if the design draws heavily from the Little Phatty line of synths. As an owner of the Little Phatty I can say that the bass sounds in the Taurus III are going to be astounding. Taurus II will be a limited quantity product with less than 1000 units produced.

From the moogmusic site: Long requested by many of our very best customers and used by the likes of Rush, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Phil Collins, Asia, Weezer, and many more. This is a one time opportunity to own a new set with a new warranty but one absolutely faithful to the original Taurus I sound.

Moog MIDI MuRF

Posted on 17 August 2009 by diode

Moog has combined the guitar and bass MuRF pedals and added a full midi implementation in the new MF-105M. At $479 it’s definitely not cheap but it is very cool sounding.
