My artist name Toog comes obviously from a Moog sound. A sound that I personnalized on the GEM S2 keyboard: you had to change at least one letter of the original ROM sound for saving your own sound setting.

It's interesting to see how the synth builders do name sounds; it's rare to feel that they are humble, having humour instead of being like God creating THE ultimate sound. (By the way, what day did God create the sound? It's not mentioned in the Bible. God probably created the sound before the snake, so that Adam and Eve could be warned by its hissing).

The new Alesis Micron, a small and cute keyboard, has a real taste for german names; being an american brand from California, they like to make fun of Deutschland! See how they call some of their sounds.
