The Bob Moog Foundation and MOTU are proud to announce the release of the Bob Moog Foundation Encore Soundbank, a new, compelling collection of instrument and percussion sounds produced in commemoration of Bob Moog’s 81st Birthday, coming up on May 23rd. In a charitable effort to raise funds for the Foundation, over 25 legendary synthesists and renowned sound designers donated original samples to assist with the creation of the sound library, which offers over 2 GB of material.
Now available for purchase from the MOTU website (www.motu.com/moog-encore), the library is fully compatible with any host software on Mac or Windows that supports virtual instruments, including popular DAW software such as Ableton Live, Avid Pro Tools, Cockos Reaper, and MOTU Digital Performer.
All proceeds from the sale of the Encore Soundbank will benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.
The library ships in the form of a UVI soundbank that can be loaded into the cross-platform, universally compatible UVI Workstation virtual instrument player, available for free download from uvi.net. The library can also be loaded intoMOTU’s MachFive 3 sampler for side-by-side integration with other MachFive-compatible soundbanks. Most of the 200+ Encore Soundbank presets are scripted to include vintage Moog-style filter and envelope controls.
MOTU is proud to support the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog and the Bob Moog Foundation’s educational and historic preservation work through the funding generated by the sales of the Encore Soundbank.
