Better than Grumpy Cat?
So, not even one post in 2012. How freaking pathetic is this blog. “Just let it die already!” you’re screaming. Who am I kidding, no one is reading this. I only have time for doing tweets lately (@bluedistortion – follow me bro!). I also spend a lot of time eating cookies.
Life is crazy and cookies are delicious.
Anyhow, I thought this was awesome–there’s been a Moog Modular on eBay for what looks to be over a month now. The best part? It’s only $60,000. So sexy. Worth it to go and check out the pictures. It’s in amazing condition. Imagine all of the people you could impress with this thing (ladies?).
This multi-generational Moog system has the following modules included: 901, 901A, 3-901B, 4-902, 903, 2-904A, 904B, 907A, 4-911, 911A, 921, 951, 960, 961CP, 962CP, 984, 991, custom 994 (3x), 2-CP3A, CP4A, upgraded CP8A.

Allow me to nerd the hell out please. The Prophet 5 was one of the first commercial polyphonic synthesizers available; it was released in 1978. Such an awesome sound thick sound. Hopefully one day I’ll have some Prophet ’08 PE samples available. So, check out the Prophet 5 Zaps pack, it’s one shot samples!
Also available for download are a few Waldorf Microwave XT kits: Echos and Sweeps. All of these were originally on the forums for registered users, so, you might have them already. These will also be available on the sound samples page shortly. The rest from the old forums coming soon, such as the JP-8000 packs. Enjoy.

I’m trying to sell my Emu e5000 Ultra Sampler in the Tampa Bay area with sample discs for $199! It’s in perfect working condition and has always been kept in a smoke free studio! It has a 12GB internal hard drive (upgraded), 128MB RAM (upgraded), a Glyph SCSI CD-ROM drive and comes with 15 sample discs!
It has amazing filters, routing and patching capabilities. I helped put together a list of the sources and destinations for the routing capabilities here.
I hope someone locally will purchase this, I would hate to have to put it up on Ebay (and charge for shipping).
Sold, thanks Chris!

Waldorf Microwave XT!
Well, I am back sooner than expected with even more Waldorf Microwave XT Samples, a continuation from the previous entry. I have been getting some great sounds out of it lately, working the XT much like a an old school analog modular synth. Digital, strange and evil sounds have been emanating quite easily from this orange monster. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.

The Orange Wavetable Monster!
Well, it’s been quite a while since there has been new samples uploaded to Blue Distortion. As much as I would like to keep up with this site, it unfortunately sits on the back burner for long periods of time. I do apologize for that. More importantly, I would like to apologize to all of those that have emailed us in the last few months with tracks for the podcast. I haven’t been updating it recently.
I am currently working on writing a system that will streamline the submission process and make it much easier to add tunes to the podcast. Till then, please hold tight. Now, finally, on to the new Waldorf Microwave XT samples.
