A synth legend revived and given new life for the modern computer musician.
Arturia, in partnership with Bob Moog, has created Moog Modular V 2.5, a faithful, virtual reproduction of one of the most famous series of synthesizers: Moog Modular. Whether recreating the abstract tonal qualities of the classic electronic soundtracks, or pushing forward the sonic boundaries of today, the Moog Modular V 2.5 is the synthesizer of choice for sound exploration, anywhere, anytime. The virtual synthesizer has all the vibe and the fat sound of the original, cleverly combined with important contemporary features like polyphony, MIDI control, loading, and saving of patches.
A little history on Moog Modular
It was in 1964 that the first prototype of a Moog synthesizer was produced. It was presented at the AES Show (Audio Engineering Society) and immediately generated a huge amount of interest. In 1965, Bob Moog decided to release the 900 series for commercial sale, and in 1967 he made the decision to produce different machines, each with a certain number of modules. This marked the birth of modular systems I, II, and III.
"Probably the number one system" (Peter Forrest, "The A-Z of Analog Synthesizers"), the Moog Modular was soon to be adopted by groups like Tangerine Dream, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones. Stevie Wonder, Klaus Schultze, Isao Tomit, Jean-Michel Jarre, Keith Emerson, among many others.
