Thought this would be a cool sound to try out with a live performance video. The Moog Minitaur was the first synthesizer I owned. When I got a Moog Sirin I thought of trying to create paraphonic sound by sending midi to both from the M-Audio midisport 4×4 interface and recording the audio. This combination created a really awesome harmonizing sound that could be modulated or tweaked. In addition I patched up my Grandmother with the semi-modular trio Moog DFAM, Subharmonicon, and Mother-32 then midi synched with Ableton Live 10. Hope you enjoy this duet as much as I do, check out some of my other videos here!
July was quite a month, like an emotional roller coaster tossing you side to side, but we made it through and I am ready for August now. Down here in Georgia, we had incredible thunderstorms, temperatures in the high 90s, and humidity above 50%. This proved extremely difficult when trying to take some photographs. Luckily we had a few perfect days in between which allowed me to venture out and capture all the beauty around us. All of these photographs were taken on my Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR camera; I couldn’t say enough good things about it. If you’re in the market for a camera, I would definitely check one out. I used a combination of Canon lenses including a 24, 35, 55, and a 70-300mm for the telephoto shots. I did most of my editing on a iPhone 11, which with the new iOS 13, has been a real game changer for me in processing photos. I hope you enjoy this collection of moments from July and will come back to see what August has in store.
Moog Sirin solo
I’ve been working on a new song using the Moog Sirin and wanted to share how much I enjoy this analog synthesizer. It is truly an Analog Messenger Of Joy that produces a rich, bold sound, while still being compact and portable. The Sirin’s unique voice sings over other tracks, making it a great choice for that ripping solo! There’s a common misconception that expensive hardware is better, but we shouldn’t forget about finding that sweet spot, where price and quality meet. The Moog Sirin is a great example of when a high quality analog synthesizer becomes more accessible to the average musician. I’m also thankful for the great customer support I received from Moog when I needed to install wood panels. This synth is everything I’d hoped for, and I couldn’t be happier.
