This was our attempt to play, perform, and multitrack eleven midi instruments simultaneously. Every part of this song was triggered and recorded in real-time (with the exception being the kick & snare which were the back-track).
Twin Shadow AKA George Lewis Jr. plays the Moog Guitar in the Moog Sound Lab. Lewis’ guitar and vocals are running through the Analog Delay Moogerfooger.
Keyboardist Wynne Bennett uses the Little Phatty to lay down a bass line throughout the song with her left hand. With her right hand she plays a Minimoog Voyager XL, which is MIDI controlling Moog’s iPad synthesizer, Animoog, enabling her to play polyphonically.
Bass player Russell Manning plays the Moog Guitar, using the control pedal to sweep the cutoff of the guitar’s internal ladder filter, to create a wah-like effect that adds a funky dub feel interwoven with the percussion.
Michael Hutcherson plays a Minimoog Old School Voyager & drummer Andy Bauer is playing three Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts as percussion instruments, triggering each one separately using the Trap-Kat XL drum pads.
Sunday Synth Jam: Phantogram performs their unreleased song, 16 Years, in the Moog Sound Lab.
Vocalist/keyboardist Sarah Barthel sings through an MF-104Z Analog Delay while playing not one, but two Moog synthesizers.
Her left hand is in charge of the Minimoog Voyager Select Series, providing bass lines; the Little Phatty Stage II is arpeggiating in latch mode throughout the entire song. It is also being MIDI synced with the drum machine that percussionist Tim Oakley is performing on. In addition to the drum machine, Tim uses the Minimoog Voyager XL for a percussive sound.
Guitarist/vocalist Josh Carter explores both the full sustain and the mute modes of the Moog Guitar. Going through an MF-104Z Analog Delay and the MF-102 Ring Modulator, Josh creates an ethereal backdrop with the tremolo arm of the Moog Guitar.
