Moog synthesizer

The Moog synthesizer and other early designs of Dr. Robert Moog define the concept and, to a large degree, the sound of early synthesis.

Moog created his seminal modular synthesizer in the mid sixties, with the input of educator and composer Herbert Deutsch. Moog's modular synth defined the standardized blocks of music synthesis, including signal generating modules, like the voltage controlled oscillator; signal processing modules, like the voltage controlled filter; and control modules, including keyboards, low-frequency oscillators and sequencers.

Many of the ideas that originated in the first Moog synthesizers were repackaged in his later keyboards, including the Moog Minimoog, the Moog Taurus and the Polymoog.

A very primitive Moog synthesizer – but one that still offers some pretty cool Moog sounds.
