Ten years ago, Spectrasonics released the Moog Tribute Library, a major collection of additional sounds for their powerful Omnisphere software instrument, featuring contributions from the likes of Hans Zimmer, Vince Clarke, Jean-Michel Jarre, Danny Elfman, Money Mark and many, many more. Now they've upgraded it to v2, adding over 500 brand-new patches created with the help of legendary musician and sound designer Eric Persing.
Naturally, the sounds (of which there are now 1300 in total) make extensive use of Moog synths (including some esoteric modules and drum machines), but also featured are classics from other brands, including Buchla Modulars and the EMS Synthi AKS.
The Bob Moog Tribute Library 2, for Omnisphere (v2.6 or higher), is available now, and costs $99. As with the original, 100 percent of the proceeds will go straight to the Bob Moog Foundation charity, which supports a number of music education programmes for children. Owners of the original library will get free access to the new version.
