HOW DID MEGAFAUN GET THAT SOUND?
Shortly after Moogfest 2011, Durham, North Carolina based Megafaun came to the Moog Sound Lab to perform “Hope You Know” off their 2011 self-titled LP.
Brothers Brad and Phil Cook swapped their usual roles with Phil laying down vocals and playing strings while Brad took over for Phil playing keys.
Phil Cook takes full advantage of the Full Sustain mode on the Moog lap steel allowing him, with minimal plucking, to create a haunting sonic landscape.
Brad Cook masterfully uses a Minimoog Voyager to MIDI control Moog’s iPad based synthesizer Animoog, enabling him to play polyphonically as he weaves rich melodic chords throughout the song.
Nick Sanborn uses the Little Phatty to provide the song's bass line, filling and enriching the sound with the MF-104Z Analog Delay.
Joe Westerlund uses a Trap-Kat drum pad run through a MF-104Z Analog Delay to MIDI control three Rack Mount Voyagers configured to create ghostly percussive sounds.
