Double Win Recognizes Moog’s Leadership and Innovation in both Audio Apps and Musical Instrument Technology Categories

ANAHEIM, Calif. – January 28, 2013 – Moog Music has announced that it has won two Outstanding Technical Achievement awards from the TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) Foundation in recognition of its Minitaur analog bass synthesizer and Animoog polyphonic software synth, both launched in 2012. Mike Adams, CEO/President; Cyril Lance, Chief Engineer, Amos Gaynes, Product Development Specialist and Trent Thompson, Product Marketing Manager of Moog Music were all on hand to accept the award during a special recognition ceremony held at the 2013 NAMM in Anaheim, CA on Friday evening.

“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.
