OMG it's an iPod and iPad Moog synthesiser

About The Author

Lexy spent her formative years taking a lot of photos and dreaming in technicolour. Nothing much has changed now she's covering all things photography related for CNET.


Here's one for all the bedroom composers out there: a hardware synthesiser that brings together the best of analog, touch and computer devices.

The machine, dubbed the OMG-1, combines two iPod Touches, two iPads, one Apple Mac Mini, a Moog Little Phatty analog synth, an Akai LPK 25, Spectrasonics Omnisphere and a custom Omni TR app housed on one of the iPads. The other iPad shows what's happening on the Mac Mini (and yes, you can make it run Windows if you really want). OMG-1 was made by Eric Persing of Spectrasonics, a company best known for its endeavours in the virtual instruments field.

Before you check your bank balance and re-mortgage your house, there is only one of these machines in the world and it's a prize in a fundraiser for the Bob Moog Foundation. There's a demo of it in action in the video below. OMG indeed.

Hmm, seems a bit lame to waste an iPad just to show whats happening on the mini.

No wonder it is not for sale!
