MOOG SOUND LAB (Moogfest Edition): Mutemath – Allies
Mutemath came into the Moog factory to record a Moog Sound Lab Session and reinvent “Allies” from their 2011 LP “Odd Soul” before their Asheville show last March.
Darren opens the song with the Trap-Kat triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts through an MF-104Z Analog Delay while masterfully manipulating the Time and Feedback knobs throughout the song with one hand, and drumming with his right hand the whole time.
Roy plays his own Minimoog Voyager Select Series through a fuzz box and carries the song with solid bass lines, opening and closing the Filter Cutoff during each chorus.
Paul is singing through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for some vocal slapback and uses a Minimoog Voyager XL to control Animoog for polyphonic pads and lead lines.
Those lead lines are mirrored by Todd, who plays the Little Phatty Stage II through an MF-104Z Analog Delay, playing soft arpeggiated tones to round out the song.
