Cakewalk releases Minimoog Tribute Expansion Pack for Rapture, Rapture LE, and SONAR 7 customers

Cakewalk has announced The Minimoog Tribute Expansion Pack for Rapture and Rapture LE. Created by Craig Anderton, the Minimoog Tribute Expansion Pack pays tribute to Bob Moog's legacy and pioneering work in the field of music synthesis. Using Rapture's advanced engine, Craig has created an innovative collection that blends classic Minimoog sounds with modern synthesis.

Craig has gone beyond emulation, sampling the source oscillators from the Minimoog analog synthesizer and crafting those oscillators into advanced sfz single and multi-samples.

"I didn't just want to imitate what the Minimoog did, because there are plenty of those sounds available. Bob's genius was that the Minimoog was adaptable to so many musical contexts, and this expansion pack adapts his waveforms to yet another context. So while there are some of the analog classics-basses, French horn, vox humana, and others-there are also sounds like richly varying rhythms based on tools like step sequencing," said Anderton.

A portion of the profits will be donated to the Bob Moog Foundation, which is dedicated to archiving and preserving his research. "It's hard to overstate the contributions that Bob made to this industry," added Anderton. "I hope this expansion pack allows another generation of musicians to be inspired by Bob's continuing legacy."

Pricing and Availability

The Minimoog Tribute Expansion Pack is available to registered Rapture, Rapture LE, and SONAR 7 customers for $49.95 via download. In addition to the programs and waveforms, the package includes two informational videos: a photo gallery of the Minimoog used by Anderton, as well as a video with the story behind the programs.
