Looking at the Voice List chart for this sample library, you will see 32 Gig files with 101 Presets + the FX Bank of 42 sounds. Total size is 33 Gig files and 1.08 GIGABYTES of actual sounds. While this is a really large size for a sample library, it does not even begin to cover all the possibilities of Memory Moog sounds. This library is intended to be a useful, high fidelity set of true Moog sounds rather than claiming to be the complete instrument. By creating multiple Preset variations within each Gig file, we have tried to increase the usefulness of the sounds included. We encourage you to experiment further with the Gig file parameters and see what variations you can create. Half the fun of synth sounds is their adaptibility in parameter editing.
Recordings were created using a Yamaha digital mixer to send the data direct to disk. Except for the single note FX sounds, most samples were recorded in 3rds ranging from C2- C7 (standard 61 key keyboard). Some instruments include samples higher or lower than standard 61 key setups because the Memory Moog could be octave shifted to increase the usable range. Some Wavs were recorded as stereo to enhance the body of the sound.
Actual technical statistics on the final samples are extremely good for this type of sound due to final editing being done in 32-bit float mode with all system noise digitally profiled and carefully removed. Conversion to 16-bit 44.1kHz format was the very last step in the editing process. Since all WAVs of a sound were recorded in a single huge master file, it was possible to normalize the final WAVs in a single pass for each instrument group of Wavs. This method retains the true original volume relationships (natural scaling) of the synth itself. The final sample instruments will respond with exactly the feel of the original synth due to this approach.
Individual sample WAVs are quite long and all sounds that would normally continue forever like string or organ sounds have loop points carefully added. In most cases. a note will not be played long enough to even reach the beginning loop point, but you will be able to hold these voices as long as you wish with virtually no looping noticeable.
