Arturia and Bob Moog Foundation Announce Dr. Bob's Collector Pack
Makers of a wide variety of musical gear, but perhaps best known for its extensive software emulations of classic synthesizers, Arturia, have teamed up with the Bob Moog Foundation to create a multimedia box set in Dr. Moog's (pictured above) honor called Dr. Bob's Collector Pack. The set will include Arturia's Minimoog-V and Moog Modular-V (V2.0) software instruments along with a DVD copy of Hans Fjellestad's excellent Moog documentary (chronicling the life and achievements of Bob Moog and his company) as well as a book of previously unpublished bits of writing from the godfather of modern synthesizers, entitled Bob Moog’s Private Archives. And just to sweeten the deal for those truly nerdy synth geeks out there, they've even thrown in an official Bob Moog Foundation pin. The box set is limited to 1000 editions available worldwide, with the profits being donated to the Bob Moog Foundation, an organization which was founded to continue the legendary gear designer's legacy after his passing in 2005. And not that this has anything to do with the box set, but we'd be letting you down if we didn't pass this news along—Arturia is raffling off an original 1975 Minimoog (yes, that's the one that everyone wants) over on its Facebook page. Good luck and make sure to peep the trailer for the aforementioned Moog documentary below.
