A voyage on the horizon

Very exciting news, I have just purchased a Minimoog Voyager Performer Edition! I am now very broke, but very excited for it to arrive. If you don't count the theremin, this will be my very first analog synth.

It's expected to arrive next Tuesday. Many pics will be flickr'd. There will be much rejoicing.

Moogerfooger patch sheet

I've been coming up with some fabulous patches over the last week but the problem has been having to remember the details of each patch just in case I would have to recall one. Well I tried to "recall" one from memory and I failed completely...which lead me to search the moog website for B/W images of each unit so I could make a patch sheet. I couldn't find a similar image for my Frostwave Resonator so I simply drew a simple version in OmniGraffle while I was laying out the rest of the patch sheet. I think it turned out pretty well and I've already been able to jot down a great patch for use with my theremin that I simply do not want to forget.


Maybe someone will find this useful too.

finally, enough power!

I actually didn't have enough power strips to plugin in all the moog gear (since they all use wall-wart transformers)! I finally went down to Fry's and picked up a couple PowerSquids and got 'er all hooked up and got to patchin'. Once I figure out how to post attachments on blogger I will post some MP3s.

I also took some more shots of the gear. I figured out the best mode for shooting in the dark and also getting some nice blurs of the LEDs from the pedals. I was able to even get blurs from the pedal LEDs without even having them in the shot. Check out the best so far:
