Hands-On Review: Moog Sub 37 Analog Synthesizer

September 18, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Moog’s new analog synthesizer sounds terrific and features a lot of hands on controls for easy sound tweaking during performance. In addition to monophonic sounds, it’s duo mode allows you to play two notes at once. Also, it’s simple but powerful arpeggiator/sequencer, LFOs, and looping envelopes can all be locked to a master clock for exciting rhythm effects.

for those who have been waiting patiently for ant-zen act242 to appear, there is groundbreaking news – this summer, the wait has finally has come to an end. in collaboration with basic unit productions we present a very special limited vinyl 7 inch featuring two powerful songs guaranteed to make you move!

the title track ‘we must wait’ is truly a blast: haujobb’s catchy, essential body beats and hard synth sequences meet the unmistakable voice of belgian ebm legend jean-luc de myer (front 242) to form the definite master hit of the century. what you hear is what you get!

never stop, put the b-side straight on and be intoxicated by the ebm forced march of ‘the dancer’ featuring german lyrics sung by n.y. based artist and producer oliver chesler a.k.a. the horrorist. the message is strong, plain and clear: ich will tanzen – ich trage schwarz!

Available as 7″ Vinyl and Download: http://basicunitproductions.bandcamp….
