Vince Clarke pays musical tribute to Bob Moog
Vince Clarke is among the line-up of synth artists, remixers and sound designers who have contributed sounds to a new Bob Moog Tribute library of sounds for Omnisphere. The massive library consists of 2,4 GB of new sounds and 739 patches and is onsale now for $100 right here, with all proceeds going to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation including their MoogLab student outreach program, the creation of the future ‘Moogseum’, and their efforts to preserve and share Dr. Moog’s extensive and historic archives.
Some of the contributors so far:
Here’s a list of the best known contributors: Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke, 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), Danny Elfman, Michael Boddicker (Michael Jackson), Richard Devine (Schematic/Warp), Patrick Moraz (Yes/Moody Blues), Eddie Jobson (UK/Roxy Music), Diego Stocco, The Moog Cookbook, …and many more.
The new soundsources were developed using highly creative processing techniques with exotic gear like rare Buchla Modulars, Jean Michel Jarre’s EMS Synthi AKS, Hans Zimmer’s massive Modular Moog (including 1027 round robin Moog Drum samples!) and even Eric Persing’s one-of-a-kind OMG-1.
