We need your help to populate the custom Moog-designed-and-built synth modules with a unique archive of world sounds. The Global Synthesizer Project is asking audio adventurers and sonic scouts from across the globe to contribute local sounds from their regions...

I don't get it. Is it a box, a bunch of boxes, software, hardware? I get the sampling - that's obvious, but what's for sale, if it's even a product at all yet?

The advertising pitch makes it sound like it's 'modular' hardware (sample player) but I seriously doubt the logistics of that. It's most likely a software implementation (probably an App). That would have a greater market reach than hardware would and would make much more sense. It seems very interesting to me, as a concept anyway. My guess is that it's marketing people picking up on the 'modular' thing, but not understanding the same thing as we do.

Ok, took a Midi out from the XL, attached it to the roof antenna dish, pointed the dish towards Nebula, suddenly we started picking this up from Ceti Alpha V... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh2-P8hG5-E

Ah, that explains the huge weird footprints in our back yard ... :-)

From another post apparently it's just the art project and not slated for general release.


More to come as Moogfest starts!
