Its Robert Moog’s 78th Birth Anniversary & Google has come out with another captivating doodle today. To pay the tribute to Robert Moog, Google presents an interactive Moog Recordable Synthesizer on its homepage.
Guys, you can play the keyboard using the number and / or QWERTY keys on your actual keyboard and use the cursor arrows to move between and adjust the Mixer, Oscillators, Filters and Envelope to make all sorts of crazy squelchy synth sounds. And that’s not all – that funny looking thing to the right of the Moog is a “Tape Recorder” and if you hit the red button you can record a short section of your masterpiece, then play it back and record another three tracks.
