Spectrasonics announced the winners of their worldwide "OMG-1 Contest." Over 400 entries for the contest were submitted from 68 different countries, with a diversity of musical styles.

The goal for each contestant was to use the sounds from the Bob Moog Tribute Library in a creative and inspiring way. The company reports that the Contest and the Library have been able to raise record-breaking funds for the Bob Moog Foundation to support their projects.
The Grand Prize of Persing's custom-built OMG-1 synthesizer has been awarded to Torley Wong of Washington State, who submitted an entire album's worth of music-15 pieces, over one-hour in total-exclusively using the "Bob Moog Tribute Library" in Spectrasonics' Omnisphere software synthesizer for the tonal elements of his album. The one-of-a-kind OMG-1 synthesizer will be presented as the Grand Prize to Mr. Wong in a special event at the 'Moogfest' in Asheville, North Carolina in October 2011.
Three other major winners were announced as well, winning prizes donated by hardware synthesizer manufacturer Moog Music:
• "Outstanding Achievement Award" David Soltany (Strasbourg, France)
• "Next Generation Award" Eric Oberthaler (Berkeley, California)
• "Most Original Composition" Waen Shepherd (London, UK)
Fifteen additional contestants were recognized with "Creative Excellence Awards" and have their music featured on the Spectrasonics website.
