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.
Moog Sound Lab (Moogfest Edition): Mutemath
Moogfest Alumni Mutemath stepped into the Moog Sound Lab to re-imagine the song "Allies" from their 2011 LP "Odd Soul".

HOW DID MUTEMATH GET THAT SOUND?
Mutemath came into the factory to record a Moog Sound Lab Session before their Orange Peel show last March.
Darren opens the song with the Trap-Kat triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts through an MF-104Z Analog Delay while masterfully manipulating the Time and Feedback knobs throughout the song with one hand, and drumming with his right hand the whole time.
Roy plays his own Minimoog Voyager Select Series through a fuzz box and carries the song with solid bass lines, opening and closing the Filter Cutoff during each chorus.
Paul is singing through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for some vocal slapback and uses a Minimoog Voyager XL to control Animoog for polyphonic pads and lead lines.
Those lead lines are mirrored by Todd, who plays the Little Phatty Stage II through an MF-104Z Analog Delay, playing soft arpeggiated tones to round out the song.
