10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager Winner, Thomas Echols!

A very excited Tom Echols poses with his newly gifted 24 karat gold MiniMoog Voyager

Last week was SXSW in Switched On's hometown of Austin, TX. Musicians, industry folks, and vacationers from all over the world come to town and Switched On is a popular destination. We had our annual showcase with Moog and it was amazing, but another thing that took place in our store front only happens once in a lifetime. Moog gifted a 10th Anniversary 24 karat Golden Minimoog Voyager to one of our clients and friend Tom Echols. Needless to say he was ecstatic beyond belief. Read more on this HERE.

Moog Music In-store all week for SXSW 2013

 

SXSW 2013 is officially here! Switched On is in the heart of Austin and we're lucky enough to meet musicians who have come here for the festival from all over the globe. This year we invited Moog Music to setup a station in our store front! Check out the Lunar (White) Voyager and Voyager XL, the MoogerFooger line, and the highly anticipated Sub Phatty! The Sub Phatty is yet to be distributed so here is your chance to get a taste test of what Moog's new mono-synth has to offer. Switched On is taking pre-orders online and in-store for the Sub Phatty as well. 




Also try to come check out our event planned with Moog this Saturday! More info on that HERE.

Switched On is currently in the company of the Arp 2500 originally owned by free jazz pioneer and pianist Paul Bley. We have taken detailed photos of all of the individual modules in their un-restored state. All serial numbers on the modules are extremely early production.

Rare Waves LITE2SOUND Kit

Everything is included in the LITE2SOUND kit to start hearing light except solder, battery, and your time!

It's no surprise that Rare Waves (Eric Archer's new company) is putting out another unique device. His Grendel Drone Commander, Eurorack Format Grendel Formant Filter, Rhythm Bots,  are previous examples of his cutting edge work. This time around he's created a kit of one of his early designs: LITE2SOUND. It uses a laser diode cell to take in different frequencies of light and output their pitch equivalents. This is different from a cadmium sulfide cell or photo cell in that close proximity to light is not an issue. Simply point it at any light source and begin hearing the strange textures and frequencies therein. 
Here is an awesome use of the LITE2SOUND kit using a strobe light to trigger a sequence in a Serge modular system.
