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.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
