Eric Persing’s OMG-1 iPad/Moog Frankensynth Freakout

One of the coolest introductions at the 2011 NAMM Show was a synth that you can’t even buy, Eric Persing’s iPad + Moog frankensynth, the OMG-1.

Persing designed the OMG-1 as a contest promotion for the Bob Moog Foundation. This video, via SynthMeTV, captures the unveiling of the OMG-1 at NAMM.

In the first have of the video, Persing and Michelle Moog-Koussa talk about the contest and introduced the OMG-1. The second half of the video, though, captures Eric Persing’s OMG-1 frankensynth freakout!

Check it out and let me know what you think of the OMG-1 synthesizer!

  1. If I would have won that OMG-1, I would have immediately asked everyone to 'follow me', taken it out to the parking lot, doused it with gasoline, and set it on fire.

    That's how much I hate that thing.

  2. Ummm…..a real analog synth that can run any Mac or Windows soft synth, full integrated iPad multitouch surfaces with dedicated control apps to integrate with Omnisphere and the Moog knobs??? (that you can also use for any iOS apps with independent audio outs)

    What's not to like??!! 🙂 🙂

  3. 10:40 for the reveal.

    14:20 for actual audio.

    The demo was better than i was expecting, it's a pretty nice combination of stuff. I like it!
