Re: Bands that Use Moog

As noted in the other topic about the NBA all star break, Saturday evening, prime time TV, Cee Lo Green's band had a Minimoog model D which was in the picture 80% of the time, although only used on the intro by the bassist. Also Lenny Kravitz' keyboardist had one on his setup during the pre-game sho...

Model D Product Placement during NBA ALL STAR Weekend!

After watching the All Star basketball weekend the Minimoog model D was well-represented: I saw one first (last weekend) prominently-placed on Cee Lo Green's performance of "Forget You" used during the intro by the bassist at the right, on a previous night of All Star Weekend: http://www.s...

I agree with MC, even if you are sure you're getting good connections. There's the wires and their connection to the flags as well.. You would definitely benefit from a good tech.

Re: new oberheim 4 voice

This youtube is incredible. the sounds.. are amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeF0i2saxjc I can definitely get what Kevin is saying, though. Competition for Moog, and although I think usually competition is healthy, most corporate-sponsored forums would probably remove this type stuff (btw Ke...

Nevermind, I found the info (that is the correct pot) on Fantasyjackpalance's website. Thanks Jack, and thanks Kevin Lightner.

Technical question regarding pot value on Minimoog--Contour

Hi.. My contour amount pot (pots are sealed in the Minimoog D) is scratchy. I have a pot from a purchase from Synthfool but not sure if it is the right value for the contour amount pot (upper right corner pot in Filter section). I couldn't find it in the service manual, maybe the info is available o...

Re: Mike Bucki current status

Yawn.. I emailed him back in February of 2009, at which time I was asking about the Micromoog pitch bend ribbon and possibly a sample and hold module. He responded by saying he was still in business, and accepted both money orders and credit cards, although the credit cards required an additional em...

Re: Politics at Moogfest

Could definitely be much ado about nuttin.. Not having read any of that junk I'm just saying, if you're running a company, that is the primary concern you have, politicking should be only used if it is determined that it benefits the business, right? Edit: The moogfest 2010 page contains none of the...

Re: Politics at Moogfest

Why should a synth company die on that hill? They ought to have better marketing sense than that, McDonalds and Walmart notwithstanding. I mean if they're all that and a bag of peanuts, you'd think they could do the right thing on the marketing end of it as well. And I agree Moog is topnotch synth q...

Re: Politics at Moogfest

I agree with this, it boils down to whether one thinks the instruments are the source of the music or is the ideas and the person the source? I question whether even the individual is the source. There's some kind of creative mind that is the source, maybe, but I enjoy using a synth to make that ide...

Re: Politics at Moogfest

Mitchell Chastain's point is well-taken, though. Politicizing a business can have drawbacks. Some businesses may actually benefit from revealing political standpoints. The synth biz may or may not be one of those.

Re: So I've never used a synthesizer before

If you can record, or if you can get a loop pedal, the synth can be used for basslines, and for "colorization" in your music, all kinds of different sounds can be made with it. The synth can be used for even drum sounds. Some synths (with an audio input) can process your guitar with the fi...
