Moog announces release of first Analog Delay designed exclusively for the 500 Series Pro Audio Format

Voted Pro Sound Network Best in Show at AES 2012, the Moog Analog Delay is the first delay designed exclusively for the 500 series format. The Analog Delay is a 100% analog signal path module that features 800ms of delay time, front panel MIDI control, and an assignable Tap Tempo/CV jack on its front panel. Included with each unit is a free VST/AU/RTAS editor for easy implementation into any recording, live, and performance situation.

The Analog Delay has been designed with tone, connectivity, and flexibility at the forefront. Moog’s engineering team worked tirelessly to deliver a delay with an incredibly clean front end that could easily be pushed into a warm, natural overdrive for saturated delay trails or distorted delay effects.

Aerosmith and Producer Jack Douglas use Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) on Recording Sessions for Upcoming Album

Aerosmith and Producer Jack Douglas use Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) on Recording Sessions for Upcoming Album

The fans of Aerosmith are in the 7th heaven because the guys are working hard at their 14th studio album, set to be released in May 2012. Fans have been requested for a new abum since 2001’s Just Push Play and 2004’s bluesy covers album Honkin’ on Bobo, and the sessions for the new record are rendering something very special – something that producer Jack Douglas is calling “raw” and “nasty.” Aerosmith’s decision to again collaborate with Douglas, who helmed sessions for the band’s classic 1970s LP’s Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic and Rocks, indicates that the band is trying to capture an old-school, classic vibe on the new set. Helping Douglas, engineer Warren Huart and the band achieve the right sound is Endless Analog ’s CLASP™ (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) system, which uniquely integrates analog tape into the digital audio workstation environment. Together, they have all become huge CLASP devotees, and in fact they are using four CLASP units on the sessions.

Brendan Benson and Engineer Joe Costa Choose Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) for Benson Solo Project

Brendan Benson and Engineer Joe Costa Choose Endless Analog’s CLASP (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor) for Benson Solo Project

As songwriter-musician Brendan Benson was brainstorming in the weeks leading up to the tracking sessions for his next solo project, his thoughts kept coming back to the sound of his favorite recordings, which were made using analog tape. Benson is by no means anti-digital, as he has embraced Pro Tools over the last several decades, based on the ease it has allowed in tracking his demos and solo projects by himself, but he strongly believes in the realistic sound of analog tape that he grew up on. Eventually he discovered the perfect way to bridge the two worlds: Endless Analog ’s CLASP™ (Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor), which uniquely integrates analog tape machines into the digital audio production workflow.

“When I first heard about the CLASP, I was intrigued, and I said, ‘Sure, let’s give it a shot,’ but I’ll admit I was leery,” recalls Benson. “But then Chris Estes [Endless Analog President/Founder and CLASP inventor] was generous enough to show my engineer Joe Costa and me how it worked and let us hang onto it for a few days. I must say, I was very impressed. It does exactly what it is supposed to, and its stability is rock-solid – it just doesn’t screw up. Joe had a crash course in CLASP, and he was just as impressed as I was. We ended up buying the unit and have been using it ever since. And CLASP is just so cool – there’s no latency. It’s just genius. I’m surprised no one thought of this sooner! Chris Estes made it happen.”
