I love Moog!
« on: July 14, 2010, 06:37:04 PM »


I use it every morning.  Nothing else is as cool, crisp, and refreshing as a Moog.

Say it with me: "Moog."

Moog.

Moog.  :wub:

DJ, I think you've gotten Moog confused with Muugh.

Perfectly understandable.  You no doubt thought it was spelled phonetically.

Moog is fine in moderation, but you may need earplugs when used at high power.

Wow, I think there's a lot of confusion over this.

You might want to Google it.

You know what I think is really sick and twisted?  When people take a perfectly good word and mangle it to mean something else.

Oh for the good old days, when words meant what they meant.

When gay was carefree.  When rap was only a sharp knock on my door.  When music was a melodic arrangement that was pleasant to listen to.  When stars were those little twinkly things up in the sky.  When a full moon didn't get you arrested for indecency.  When barbie was something you put shrimp on. 

Poor, poor moog.  You misunderstood word, you.  You're only the latest tragic victim of callous and indiscriminate redefinition.  Alas, we mourn you.

Would you just look at yer man; positively luxuriating in Moog-ness he is. 

I tell ya, keep this stuff up and I won't be responsible...  It's lucky for you I don't know my Moogs from my Hammonds, or I'd be peppering this thread with youtube clips of Uriah Heep!

Strewth!  What are you trying to do to me, sir?  Is it not common knowledge that the Hammond organ was my first love?  And we all know how that ended, don't we?  Leslie still has a restraining order against me, and no one will sell me a copy of Tarkus (which features some of the best percussive Hammond sound evah).

Moreover, you insult me with your empty threats, sir.  Everyone knows that YouTube was not in existence during Dickens's time.

Would that be the B3 Hammond organ or one of the other ones?  I would allow a B3 in here but only if you played some Jimmie Smith tunes, my dear fellow but no Tarkus!

I am sorry to inform you, Tomato, that Bob never formed a tasteless pop group with Susanna Hoffs.

Moog sounds like it's a lot of fun, but is it better than
LOG?


Moog beats the oscillators off LOG seven days a week and twice on Sunday.  Kids especially love the portability of the modular Moog 1 and squeal at the opportunity to use the term "Little Phatty" in casual conversation.

Moog?  That sounds like what a cow says when it has something stuck in its throat.

I highly doubt that any bovine creature, lacking the vitally important opposable thumbs, could create a sound as cool, revitalising, and otherworldly as a Moog.  Let me restate that the Moog is the York Peppermint Pattie ™ of analog synths; consequently, if you don't get the sensation, you simply don't get it.

Bite this!

And that was, in this order: Hammond B3 organ, Minimoog, Fender Rhodes piano, and Mellotron (with a trombone setting).

P.S. Is there any wonder why I love that Minimoog sound?  :wub:

P.P.S. I rerecorded and reuploaded a new version, now with added theremin!  ;)

I used to have building instructions for theramins.  It might be interesting to look for them again and build a theramin as a hobby.

Bob is such a hunk!  ^_^

EDIT: BTW, if anyone out there would like to try a taste of virtual minimoogie goodness, one should download MiniMogue VA by Glen Stegner, Gunnar Ekornås, and Gabriel Abney and play it via the free VST host, MiniHost by Tobybear.

Did I mention how the Minimoog is the Ginsu knife of analog synths?  Listen to how it cuts through this track as if the music were made of butter.  :wub:

Let it never be said that I turned down a challenge from a(n un)worthy opponent. :P

For your listening (dis)pleasure, I present, "MoogFest." (which includes Rhodes piano and Hammond B3 organ.).

If 'tis dissonant in the middle, 'tis due to the fact that my (stormy) listening habits, of late, have mixed equal measures of Yes and King Crimson, which, if you know the two bands' whiskers well enough, 'tis akin to mixing water and oil.

I will make a prediction: DJ will still be displeased (And, goodness knows, I've indisputably let him, a most worthy opponent, down before, in a different medium.).

Nevertheless, one should STILL RESPECT THE MOOG.

Getting better, specially like 2:00 to 2:27 the best.  However, (you knew it was coming...everyone did) your chords progression is so out of whack and the whole piece (other than the last 27 seconds when ye chords get drowned out) smacks of dissonance.  At times, the choices of chords hurt my ears I felt they might bleed....and don't get me started on the voicing choices.  Come on Tiobe, hang it up and fall under my tutelage...it's probably the only way we can save the poor Hammond organ you keeping torturing now!

Ah, DJ, you simply wish to make my organ play the blues, and 'tis too early in th' day for it to turn blue.  ;)

And, aye, because this is a Moog thread and not a Hammond organ thread, here is the same tune transformed by the magical power of the Polymoog!
