Giorgio Moroder, a man made legend by his works through the latter half of the twentieth century, defined by his work in the sounds of synth pop and disco, and arguably one of the most important men of EDM still alive today, has recently announced a new collaboration with the popular audio hardware company, Novation. This collaboration essentially takes the MiniNova, a popular synthesizer, adds in “Moroder-approved synth patches from his greatest productions”, and gives it a different (and slightly humorous) paint job than the traditional model, by printing his trademark insignia on the sides of the synthesizer. This exclusive model is dubbed the “MoroderNova.”
As for the synth patches included, nothing is truly specified, although Novation does list where some of these patches are sourced from, including songs such as “Giorgio’s Theme,” “Giorgio by Moroder,” “Take My Breath Away,” and countless more. Novation elaborated on the official site:
The signature sounds identify some of Giorgio’s most seminal moments in music. From the timbres of his disco classics with bands such as Sparks and Donna Summer, to the incredible sounds of the Top Gun and Scarface soundtracks, and his recent work with Daft Punk, Novation’s sound designers have matched each and every one to the original. With access to these you’ll be able to draw inspiration from the works of one of the most influential producers alive today.
Of course, there is a catch to this bad boy. The run of this model is only a measly 500 units, making these things virtually impossible to get once they’re released. There is no pinned release date for these, but even if there was it would be fair to say there’s no point in anticipating for it, as you’ll be fighting to even try and grab one of these things.
But for those of you who want to know more (or really believe in themselves) you can learn more and sign up for the MoroderNova mailing list on their official site.
