This video, via Prockgnosis, takes a look at the vintage Moog Opus 3 string synthesizer.
WARNING: yet another LENGTHY, “for synth geeks” focused vid, this time with the Moog Opus 3, an underrated polyphonic/paraphonic Moog synth from the early 80’s. Great for the 70’s “string machine” style chorus sounds and some punchy, synthy sounds running through that 24dB Moog filter.
Though the synth is a bit limited in capability, it makes up for it in the “how it sounds” department.
03:12 The Strings Section
08:08 The Organ Section
12:00 The Brass Section
16:35 Modulation and Running the Organ thru Filter and Chorus
25:05 The Articulator (VCA) and the Output Mix
And just in case it wasn’t clear the couple times I mentioned it in the video, the reworked ProckGnosis opening theme was done entirely with the Moog Opus 3 and some Reason drums.
If you’ve used the Moog Opus 3, leave a comment and let us know what you think of it!
