Back in 2011 Mutemath stepped into the Moog factory to record a Moog Sound Lab Session, here they transform “Blood Pressure” from their 2011 LP “Odd Soul”.
For those of you curious about the instrumentation:
“Blood Pressure” fades in with Darren playing pulsing bass lines in the verse and higher etherial notes on Animoog, being controlled by a Minimoog Voyager.
Paul sings and plays a Little Phatty Stage II, holding out elongated single lines while opening and closing the Filter Cutoff knob with the Resonance set high.
Roy uses his Minimoog Voyager Select Series for low rumbling bass to hold the foundation.
Darren plays the Trap-Kat, triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for rhythmic echo.

Background video description (Googlish from Spanish):
THIS VIDEO IS TEACHING. NOT intend to present as art WHAT SOUNDS HERE.
The Tenori-On is also a good sound module, excellent sequencer. Among the possibilities that is counted as sequencer to sequence the analog equipment that has MIDI inputs and outputs.
Following the setup of the video:
Tenori-On Voyager IN to OUT
Tenori-On Voyager OUT IN
After connecting as specified above and turn on both instruments. You must assign the MIDI channel of the MIDI channel Moog Tenori-On you want to tie. In the example, the Voyager melodic loop, which sounds all the time, is assigned to MIDI channel 1 and the layer 1 of the song within the Tenori-On.
Tenori-On: Stereo audio output to the audio console, without processing.
Voyager: mono audio output mono audio input of the MF-104Z Moogerfooger Delay and Moogerfooger audio output to audio console.
Do not use any additional processing.
This is just a simple example of how to incorporate the Tenori-On to September 1 analogue.
For MIDI analog synthesizers but with controls without CV / Gate, the recommendation is to use a converter MIDI to CV / Gate.
If you have a MIDI Patchbay (like MOTU MIDI Timepiece), it is possible to sequence up to 16 tracks simultaneously with external MIDI instruments.

a moody piece using the Korg Radias and the Minimoog Voyager XL. Just 3 tracks in Logic Pro 9. Pads obviously by the Korg Radias – Who said the Radias was “thin” on sound? It maybe Digital, but has some great sounds if you are prepared to spend the time. Bass and incidental sounds, naturally the Moog. The Minimoog Voyager XL needs no explanation, it is such a great powerhouse of sound and so playable, intuitive and just so simply Moog. The legend of the Moog sound and playability lives on with this Synth. One purchase I do not regret, irrespective of the fact it is a Monophonic synth weighing in at over 5 grand Australian, it is such an awesome synth. I would have paid double just to own this synth.
Video was taken on my iPhone 4s at Central Station, in Sydney, whilst waiting for my train to arrive, sitting in my usual spot having a smoke

Track that I made today. Sequenced with the MPC2500. Bassline is the MiniMoog Voyager. Pad is the DSI Prophet 08, lead is the DSI Mopho and the Drums are form the Vermona DRM mkiii.
The Pad is processed with the Moogerfoogers Phaser and MidiMurf. Mopho is processed with the LowPass filter and Analog delay.
Special thanks to my friend Analogmadness for sharing his foogers.
Hope you like it!
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.

Yet another Video of the Beast,
Best listened to with the volume up and Headphones or a decent pair of Speakers….
There is an attempt at humour for people liking Synth Porn, yes that good old fashioned love for all things Synth, regardless of what brand it is.
The music is all recorded live into Logic Pro 9 track by track, only the drums were sequenced. Bass, Phantom bass line and the twiddly bit to the left., apart from the drums, all tracks were recorded in Mono and panned. some processing as usual.
Yes the Guts and innards of my Voyager XL. Footage taken before I sent her away to be serviced. Hope you enjoy this one…lets see how many of you make it to the end…
The video is of me videoing the event where I am checking connections inside and pointing out to Moogmusic my findings, before I sent her away. I have to say, the guys and support at Moogmusic are excellent, well done guys for sorting this out, I knew you would anyway, but the support I got was brilliant.

The wife and I were lucky enough to get a tour of the Moog factory in Asheville, NC recently, and while there I spent a little while in the sound lab making spacey noises. It was like being inside my own brain. I could have set up a tent in there.”
