Burbank, CA (May 29, 2012)—Spectrasonics released 78 brand new Omnisphere patches for the Bob Moog Tribute Library to celebrate what would have been Bob Moog's 78th birthday on May 23.
With the addition of the new 'birthday' patches created by Producer Eric Persing, the library now features more than 800 sounds for Omnisphere, the company's flagship synthesizer.
The new patches are a continuation of the tribute to honor the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog and support the ongoing work of the Bob Moog Foundation. In 2011, Spectrasonics produced the Tribute Library with the help of numerous synthesizer artists. Fully 100 percent of the proceeds from the Bob Moog Tribute Library go to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation, helping the organization to expand its educational outreach programs.
"The stunning sonic offerings of the Bob Moog Tribute Library have helped generate unprecedented support for our mission. We are delighted to see Spectrasonics celebrating Bob's birthday by expanding the musical landscape once again," said Michelle Moog-Koussa, executive director of the Bob Moog Foundation.
The sounds in the library were created by more than 40 top synth artists, remixers and sound designers, including Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke, Jean Michel Jarre, The Crystal Method, Jordan Rudess, Money Mark, Bernie Worrell, Larry Fast, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., Ryuichi Sakamoto, Morgan Page, Keith Shocklee, Steve Porcaro, Fredwreck, Jan Hammer, Michael Boddicker, Richard Devine, Patrick Moraz, Eddie Jobson, Diego Stocco, Danny Elfman, The Moog Cookbook and many more. The Bob Moog Tribute Library's 2.4 GB of Soundsources were developed using creative processing techniques, often with exotic gear like rare Buchla Modulars, Jarre's EMS Synthi AKS, Zimmer's massive Modular Moog and even Persing's one-of-a-kind OMG-1 Synthesizer.
