Moog Sound Lab is a performance series where artists are filmed performing in the Moog Music factory in Asheville, North Carolina. Moog Sound Lab is all about organic experimentation and is a unique opportunity for artists to explore analog sound-scaping, synthesis and effects.

HOW DID JUNIP GET THAT SOUND?
José González is playing his traditional nylon string guitar through the Moogerfooger MF-104Z Analog Delay for the entirety of this "Sweet and Bitter" rendition. Then he kicks in the MF-103 12-Stage Phaser and MF-105M MIDI MuRF to launch a fluttery modulation mimicking the sound of a rotary speaker to punctuate the second half of the song.
Tobias Winterkorn began with one hand on the Little Phatty Stage II and the other on the Minimoog Voyager Old School, laying a two-handed call and response bass line. The Voyager Old School then takes the filtered lead in place of the Moog Prodigy that typically takes this part in Junip's live show.
Johan Grettve is using the Minimoog Voyager XL to add a buzzy bass line through a MF-107 FreqBox and tweaks the "Frequency" knob throughout the song, also sprinkling in the MF-104Z Analog Delay throughout.
Joel Wästberg plays a Little Phatty Stage II in the instrumental section at the end of the song, repeating the line while tweaking the filter section and the octave buttons. To finish the song, he manipulates the time and feedback knobs on the MF-104Z Analog Delay creating a warbley mass of echoes.
