At this year’s NAMM Show, there was a wealth of modular synthesizer gear on display, more than we’ve ever seen at previous NAMM Shows. It’s a reflection of the increasing interest in modular synthesis and the growing number of modular synth manufacturers. Continue reading
At the 2013 NAMM Show, Sonic State synth guru Nick Batt caught up with synth education rock star Marc Doty to take a look at the Wall Of Doom - a massive Moog modular synthesizer, owned by prog synthesist Erik Norlander.
Norlander generously shared his synth for the show with the non-profit Bob Moog Foundation, to help them demonstrate the power of Bob Moog’s work. Check it out: Continue reading
Synthesist Erik Norlander performs his 20+ min epic prog synth suite, The Dark Water, live at RoSFest 2011 in Gettysburg, PA.
Norlander plays his 22-oscillator “Wall of Doom” Moog modular synthesizer, controlled by and supplemented with Minimoog Voyager and Alesis Andromeda keyboards.
Performed with Freddy DeMarco (g), Mark Matthews (b) and Nick LePar (d).
The video is taken from the 2012 DVD, Erik Norlander – The Galactic Collective: Live in Gettysburg.
The Bob Moog Foundation has announced a new video series, in partnership with macProvideo.com, looking at The Foundations of Synthesis.
The Foundation of Synthesis series features BMF Education and Archive Specialist Marc Doty and cover a variety of topics, including:
- The Synthesis of Synthesis
- Control Voltage
- Amps, Ring Modulators, S&H and more
- Applied Synthesis
On several of the videos, synthesist Erik Norlander assists the lesson with a demonstration on his 22 oscillator Wall of Doom modular Moog synthesizer.
This video, via moogfoundation, captures a presentation by Amos Gaynes, New Product Specialist at Moog Music, on the power of modular synthesis.
Gaynes makes the case that now is ‘the best time in human history to be into analog modular synthesis.”
Gaynes is introduced by synthesist Erik Norlander, and gives his talk in front of Norlander’s 22-oscillator Moog synth, known as the Wall Of Doom.
