Moog E1 Black Tremolo Bridge E-Guitar
Seit der Enthüllung der Moog Guitar auf der Musikmesse Summer NAMM 2008 wurde das Instrument regelrecht mit Nominierungen und Auszeichnungen überschüttet. Nun gibt es mit der Moog Guitar Model E1 eine weitere Version, die das Instrument für Gitarristen, die nach neuen Ausdrucksformen in ihrem Spiel suchen, noch interessanter macht. Moog Guitar Model E1: Gitarre für unerforschte Klangwelten
Moog Guitar Model E1
Die Moog Guitar Model E1 nutzt dieselbe innovative Elektronik und dieselben Pickups wie die originale Paul Vo Collector Edition, hinzugekommen sind bemerkenswerte Neuerungen wie der Erlenholz-Körper, Chrom und eine Auswahl an fixierten und Tremolo-Bridges. Mit der Moog Guitar haben sich für Gitarristen ungeahnte kreative Möglichkeiten eröffnet, die wir kurz umreißen:
Moog Guitar Model E1: Features
Full Sustain Mode: Endloses Sustain für jede Saite, an jeder Stelle des Griffbretts und bei jeder Lautstärke. Die Kraft und Klarheit dieser Sustains (Vo Power) ist unerreicht.
Controlled Sustain Mode: Erlaubt es Euch, ein- oder mehrstimmige Parts mit Sustain zu spielen, wobei die Saiten, die nicht gezupft werden, stummgeschaltet werden.
Mute Mode: Schaltet Saiten stumm, was in einer Reihe von Stakkato-Artikulationen resultiert. Diese Spielart ist bisher mit keiner anderen Gitarre möglich; die Vo Power stoppt die Saiten in derselben Intensität, mit der sie diese verweilen (Sustain) lässt.
Harmonic Blends: Nutzt das mitgelieferte Pedal, um die additive Energie der Sustains mit der subtraktiven des Mute Mode zu verquicken und um den Saiten subtile oder dramatische Harmonien zu entlocken.
Moog Filter: Steuert die Frequenz des eingebauten resonanten Moog-Ladder-Filters über das Pedal oder den Eingang für die Steuerspannung (CV). Since its introduction at the Summer NAMM tradeshow in 2008, the Moog Guitar has received numerous industry honors including Guitar Player Magazine's 2009 Reader's Choice Award, Electronic Musician Magazine's 2009 Editor's Choice Award, 2008 Summer NAMM "Best In Show" honors, a 2008 “Best of What’s New Award” from Popular Science magazine and a 2009 Mix Foundation TEC Award nomination. More importantly, it has inspired players to new creative heights, and opened the door to totally new forms of expression with a guitar.
Introducing the next step in the evolution of The Moog Guitar: The Model E1.
The Model E1 is the production model of The Moog Guitar. It uses the same innovative electronics and pick-ups as the original Paul Vo Collector Edition, with some exciting new changes. It’s available in three new finishes; Butterscotch, Candy Red and Black, and now sports chrome hardware, a solid alder body and a choice of fixed or tremolo bridges.
"One of the most inspiring aspects of producing The Moog Guitar has been hearing from guitarists who have been creatively reinvigorated by it." said Mike Adams, Moog Music President. "When someone plays it for the first time, you can almost see new musical ideas forming in their head."
The Model E1 provides an incredibly intimate playing experience that connects musicians directly to the source of the sound; the strings of the guitar. It does this by controlling the way the strings vibrate. In a very coherent way, the Model E1 gives energy to, and takes energy away from the strings. The resulting timbres do not rely on effects or post-processing. They are created directly from the strings.
“To me, touching the strings, being able to directly manipulate the very source of sound is fundamental to the nature of the guitar and to the spirit of playing it.” said Moog Guitar inventor, Paul Vo. “The E1’s controls just set the background mode - the control system characteristics. The strings are always your main user interface. The idea was never to make the guitar sound like anything else - it was to excite the instrument with controlled electronics to bring out hidden aspects of the instrument’s own natural character.”
What makes this guitar so special?
The Moog Guitar Electronics add an unparalleled range of expression to the Moog Guitar:
FULL SUSTAIN MODE - like no other sustainer; infinite sustain on every string, at every fret position and at any volume. You may have heard sustain before but not with this power (we call it "Vo Power") and clarity.
CONTROLLED SUSTAIN MODE - allows you to play sustained single or polyphonic lines without muting technique. The Moog Guitar sustains the notes you are playing while actively muting the strings you are not playing.
MUTE MODE - removes energy from the strings, resulting in a variety of staccato articulations. The mute mode has never been heard on any other guitar; the Vo Power stops the strings with the same intensity that it sustains them. You feel the instrument transform in your hands.
HARMONIC BLENDS - use the included foot pedal to shift the positive energy of Vo Power in Sustain mode and the subtractive force of Vo Power in Mute mode between the bridge and neck pick-ups to pull both subtle and dramatic harmonics from the strings.
MOOG FILTER - control the frequency of the built-in, resonant Moog ladder filter using the foot pedal or a CV Input.
Moog Guitar Controls
There are five knobs:
Vo Power Knob - Controls intensity of sustain and mute. The knob turned fully CW is full Vo Power and fully CCW is no Vo Power.
Piezo Blend Blends the piezo bridge pick-up signal into the guitar's output signal.
Harmonic Balance Knob - Controls the balance of Vo Power between neck and bridge pick-ups. (When the Filter Toggle is in "Tone Control" position, this function is moved to the foot pedal and the Harmonic Balance knob does nothing.)
Master Volume Knob - Controls overall volume (Moog and piezo pick-ups).
Tone/Filter Knob - Adjusts the guitar tone when the Filter Toggle is in Tone Control position; adjusts the resonance of the Moog filters in the two Moog Filter Toggle positions.
There are three switches:
Mode Selector Switch - Switches between Mute Mode, Controlled Sustain Mode and Full Sustain Mode
Filter Toggle Switch Switches the Moog Filter between a standard guitar Tone Control - (toggle away from strings), a Moog Articulated Filter - (toggle centered), and a Moog Ladder Filter - (toggle towards strings).
Five Position Pick-up Selector Switch: Neck, In-phase, Out of phase, Bridge, and Piezo. only. (The piezo signal accessed via the Piezo Blend knob passes through the Moog filter; "piezo only" does not.)
Floor Pedal- Function depends on the setting of the Filter Toggle switch.
- When the Filter Toggle is in "Tone Control" position, the floor pedal controls the harmonic balance. (Forward = high harmonics, Middle = full harmonics, Back = lower harmonics.)
- When the Filter Toggle is in "Moog Articulated Filter" position, the floor pedal controls the filter cutoff frequency that the articulated filter starts with.
- When the Filter Toggle is in "Moog Ladder Filter" position, the foot pedal controls the filter cutoff frequency.
What is the difference between The Moog Guitar and sustainers?
1.) The Moog Guitar Technology is not a sustainer technology but a Harmonic Control System.
2.) In Sustain Mode, The Moog Guitar is like a sustainer on steroids. Previous sustainer technologies are limited both in their power and responsiveness.
3.) Unlike sustainer technologies, the Moog Guitar has the ability to simultaneously "listen" and "control" each individual string at exactly the same point. This allows the control system to affect the string coherently. For each pickup and string, there is a unique control system that is optimized for those harmonics happening at that point in time.
4.) This "coherency" gives the Moog Guitar a sustain capability that is un-paralleled both in power and responsiveness. There are no frustrating lags, or drop offs. And the sustain from the Moog Guitar is DIRECTLY related to what is happening on the string at that point, so it is very organic sounding and gives a feeling of connection to the instrument that has never before been felt.
5.) Sustaining is just the stepping-off point for the Moog Guitar. The same ability to coherently give energy to the string can take energy away. This is revolutionary: the ability to MUTE a string (or strings) changes the very way the string reacts to the wood and acoustics of the instrument. It feels like a different instrument in your hands when in Mute Mode.
6.) Combining the Sustain and Mute modes gives us the never-before achieved Controlled Sustain Mode. Players can sustain single-note lines while the Harmonic Control System actively removes energy from strings that aren't being played. This allows fluid violin-like lines and counter-point that are not achievable with sustainers.
7.) The Harmonic Control System allows the player to affect different harmonics that are occurring on the strings in real-time.
8.) Because of the direct action of the Harmonic Control System on the string at the same point in space and time, the Moog Guitar fits perfectly into your playing technique, it responds naturally to the way you play - it becomes part of the acoustic nature of the actual instrument.
9.) The Moog Guitar expands the soundscape of the guitar in ways that no sustainer technology can approach. Like all Moog instruments, the only limit is the imagination and inspiration of the musician.
