Smart bets: Moog Music workshop series

Factory_New_crop

If you’ve ever approached a synthesizer, stared into the abyss of knobs and then retreated without extracting a single sound, Moog Music may have the triple-dose antidote you need — a single-day, hands-on workshop series. Synthesis 101, led by Paul Gaeta and Andy Hughes, will explore basic functionality concepts for software and hardware synths (45 minutes, free). Instructor Rob Gray will then aid participants in navigating Ableton Live software to create virtual instruments by inputting various sound sources (30 minutes, free). Finally, local electronic music virtuoso David Krantz (aka Futexture) will cover control voltage and modular synthesis topics by recreating his signature soundscapes using Moog Music’s Sub Phatty (one hour, $20). The limited-capacity series takes place at the Moog factory store on Saturday, Aug. 30, from 4-7 p.m. To RSVP, call 239-0123 or email paul.g@moogmusic.com. Photo courtesy of Moog Music
