Arturia Moog Modular System 3C Software Emulation

Winter NAMM 2003: At this music trade show, Arturia — best known for its Storm 2.0 virtual studio music software — presented its software reproduction of synthesiser pioneer Moog’s Modular System 3C, using a new set of algorithms known as TAE (True Analog Emulation).

While avoiding aliasing for better quality, TAE emulates the inherent instabilities often found in analog music hardware and aims to reproduce the sought-after ‘warm’ sound of vintage synthesisers.

Most early synthesisers were modular in that they operated as a group of modules that each performed a different task in the process of creating sound. The modules could then be connected to each other with patch cords in a number of ways to form different and new sounds playable with a keyboard.

Arturia’s Modular System mimics all the functions of the original 3C but improves it by including over 400 presets. It can be used as either a stand-alone program or as a virtual instrument in the standard plug-in formats of VSTi, DXi, MAS, RTAS and HTDM. Requiring at least 128MB of RAM, the software is available for Windows 95 through to XP.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
