Moog Receives Outstanding Technical Achievement Awards for Minitaur and Animoog at 2013 NAMM
Double Win Recognizes Moog's Leadership and Innovation in both Audio Apps and Musical Instrument Technology Categories
"The TEC Foundation Award recognizes the music industry's most outstanding products. We are honored to bring home two TEC Awards this year,” commented Mike Adams. “Our development of the Minitaur and the Animoog was a tremendous team effort led by our engineers and the direct result of carefully listening by our marketing department to the needs of our customers who use these tools each day."
Minitaur: Analog Bass Synthesizer
The Moog Minitaur, which won the "Musical Instrument Technology" category, is a powerful, compact analog bass synthesizer that features a classic one knob per function design. It is the first instrument in Moog's Taurus family that does not have foot pedals. At only 8.5" x 5.25" and less than 3lbs, the Minitaur puts legendary analog Moog bass into a package designed to fit seamlessly into today's performance and production environments.
Animoog: Expressive, Captivating and Sonically Immersive
Animoog, which captured a TEC Award in the new "Audio Apps for Smartphones & Tablets" category, is powered by Moog’s new Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE) and is the first professional polyphonic synthesizer designed for the IOS. Animoog captures the vast sonic vocabulary of Moog synthesizers and applies it to the modern touch surface paradigm, enabling a user to quickly sculpt fluid and dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve. Visually captivating and sonically immersive, Animoog brings IOS music production to the next level.
