New Sounds for the Bob Moog Tribute Library from Sound Designer Eric Persing

BURBANK, CALIF - MAY 23, 2012 - To celebrate the anniversary of Bob Moog's 78th birthday, Spectrasonics have released 78 brand new Omnisphere patches for the Bob Moog Tribute Library! With the addition of the new 'birthday' patches created by Producer Eric Persing, the library now features over 800 stunning sounds for Omnisphere, the company's flagship synthesizer.

The new patches are a continuation of the tribute to honor the legacy of synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog and support the ongoing work of the Bob Moog Foundation. In 2011 Spectrasonics produced the Tribute library with the generosity and creative talents of many renowned synthesizer artists, and has been a huge success in benefiting the Foundation allowing them to expand their educational outreach programs. 100% of the proceeds from the "Bob Moog Tribute Library" go to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

"The stunning sonic offerings of the Bob Moog Tribute Library have helped generate unprecedented support for our mission. We are delighted to see Spectrasonics celebrating Bob's birthday by expanding the musical landscape once again." said Michelle Moog-Koussa, executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation.

The sounds in the library were created by more than 40 of the world's top synth artists, remixers and sound designers, including Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke, Jean Michel Jarre, The Crystal Method, Jordan Rudess, Money Mark, Bernie Worrell, Larry Fast, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., Ryuichi Sakamoto, Morgan Page, Keith Shocklee, Steve Porcaro, Fredwreck, Jan Hammer, Michael Boddicker, Richard Devine, Patrick Moraz, Eddie Jobson, Diego Stocco, Danny Elfman, The Moog Cookbook, and many more.

The Bob Moog Tribute Library's 2.4GB of Soundsources were developed using highly creative processing techniques-often with exotic gear like rare Buchla Modulars, Jarre's EMS Synthi AKS, Zimmer's massive Modular Moog and even Persing's one of a kind OMG-1 Synthesizer. With so many different world-class artists contributing, the library is very rich in style and filled with inspiring, cutting edge sounds.

The Bob Moog Tribute Library is available as a download from the Spectrasonics web store for $100; existing Tribute Library customers can download the new patches for free from the Omnisphere updates area.
