Sorry, it’s not an official OhGizmo! contest where winning is as easy as leaving a comment. If you want to win this epic-looking, one-of-a-kind OMG-1 synthesizer built by Spectrasonics’ Eric Persing, you’re going to have to work for it. Featuring a Moog Little Phatty, an Omnisphere, a Mac Mini, dual iPads, dual iPods and an Omni TR built into a hand-crafted curly maple cabinet, the OMG-1 is available to the artist who produces the best original music using Spectrasonic’s Bob Moog Tribute Library for their Omnisphere synth software. The contest does require you to purchase and download the Bob Moog library if you already haven’t, which is $100, but 100% of the proceeds will go to the Bob Moog Foundation.
The contest submission deadline is July 15th 2011, and multiple entries are welcome. The winner will be announced on the Spectrasonics’ website on September 15th, 2011, with the OMG-1 being presented to them at the 2011 Moogfest in October.
