MOTU and the Bob Moog Foundation announce the release of the Bob Moog Foundation Encore Soundbank, a new and exciting collection of instrument and percussion sounds produced in commemoration of Bob Moog's 81st Birthday, coming up on May 23rd. In a charitable effort to raise funds for the foundation, over 25 legendary synthesists and renowned sound designers donated original samples to assist with the creation of the sound library, which offers over 2 GB of material. The library is fully compatible with any host software on Mac or Windows, and all proceeds from the sale of the Encore Soundbank will benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

MOTU Artist Spotlight: Jay Oliver and DP

Jay Oliver has always been somewhat of an enigma...part producer, part engineer, part side-musician and part entrepreneur, winding his way through a career's worth of solo work mingled with rewarding artistic affiliations (Sheryl Crow, The Eagles, Dave Weckl, Chick Corea). Perhaps the most enduring collaboration has been with iconic drummer Dave Weckl. The two have provided each other with musical inspiration for many years, and recently reunited to produce the 2014 album release "Convergence". Jay served as a primary creative force behind the album, using Digital Performer on a daily basis for composing, arranging and producing the album's tracks. In this interview, Jay ruminates about the creative process and DP's central role in his production workflow.
