Mogo I

A pseudo vintage synthesizer, for B-movie feels, with rumbling tremolo and old tape flutter....

The story

For a recording project, I needed a vintage-sounding synth keyboard, something that sounded retro but not necessarily recognisable such-and-such keyboard from so-and-so era. This instrument, dubbed the Mogo I, is a straightforward sampling of a Fender and Epiphone electric guitars, to simulate said imaginary object, for B-movie feels, with rumbling tremolo and noisy old tape flutter. It was used primarily with a slow attack, and lots of reverb and delay, but you can also dial down those things and it plays reasonably well as a kind of strange electric piano.

  • Instant chills, instant favourite!

    With everything off, this is a smooth pluck-like synthetic sound that can be very quickly transformed into something chilling. Through the amazingly designed GUI, you can add depth and other effects to it, resulting in a goosebump generator. Highly recommended no doubt!

  • Motion Glue

    The motion you can get from simple chords on this can really glue a piece together. The reverse-ish notes can add a great haunted feeling to any piece. Overall sound quality is great and the UI is top notch.
    This has definitely inspired a track today.

  • Nice wobbly synth sounds

    A nice sounding synth that can be modulated fairly extensively with the effects knobs, including lots of wobbly sounds with the tremolo and flutter. I found it a little hard to work with due to the delayed onset and varied range of some of the different sounds, without the ability to toggle them on and off. But overall a nice array of potential sounds to play with!
