Spectrasonics in Burbank, Calif., has released the Bob Moog Tribute Library created by renowned artists for Omnisphere, and is also offering a contest designed around the library, in which participants enter to win the OMG-1 hardware synthesizer created by Eric Persing. Spectrasonics states that 100 percent of the proceeds from this new library go to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation, which includes the MoogLab student outreach program, the creation of the 'Moogseum' in Bob's hometown of Asheville, N.C., and the preservation of Bob Moog's extensive and historic archives.

Produced by Eric Persing, the Bob Moog Tribute Library features more than 700 new sounds (2.4 GB) for Omnisphere, Spectrasonics' flagship synthesizer virtual instrument. More than 40 of the world's top synth artists, remixers and sound designers created the sounds for this library. Contributing artists include Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke (Erasure/Depeche Mode), Jean Michel Jarre, the Crystal Method, Jordan Rudess, Money Mark (Beastie Boys/Beck), Bernie Worrell (P-Funk/Talking Heads), Larry Fast (Peter Gabriel/Synergy), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Air/Fiona Apple), Ryuichi Sakamoto (YMO), and many more.

Some of the library's sound sources incorporate processing techniques that were developed using Buchla Modulars, Jean Michel Jarre's EMS Synthi AKS, Hans Zimmer's Modular Moog (including 1,027 round-robin Moog Drum samples) and Persing's OMG-1.

Persing designed the contest's grand prize, the OMG-1, as a live performance instrument that integrates analog synthesis, computers, software synthesis and the latest multi-touch surfaces. The dual-manual OMG-1 combines a Moog Little Phatty analog synthesizer, Spectrasonics' flagship Omnisphere software synthesizer, an internal Apple Mac mini computer, dual Apple iPads, dual iPods, and Spectrasonics' new Omni TR iPad app in a hand-crafted curly maple cabinet created by American artisan Daniel Auon.
