Craig Anderton created The Minimoog Tribute, an affordable expansion pack for Cakewalk’s Rapture and Rapture LE synths that “covers” the classic sounds rather than duplicates them, using his personal Minimoog. I interviewed him for CDM at NAMM and discovered that a portion of the proceeds from sales of The Minimoog Tribute go towards the Moog Foundation, a charitable organization devoted to preserving the personal archive of Bob Moog. It’s not just a collection of personal effects, it serves as a veritable archive of the history of electronic music itself and deserves to make it through time for future generations to explore and peruse.
