Moog Drum Machine Prototype

Posted by Scott

Great shots of this beautiful 1970 Moog prototype. I love the pragmatic minimalism of these early designs. I think Moog Music are doing some great things right now — particularyly with the new Sub 37 Tribute — good to see them shifting their design more back in this direction.

Bob Moog built this drum machine machine for TV Theme / Jingle composer Eric Siday. Moog’s Analog Drum Machine consisted of prototype modules for drum and percussion synthesis.

images like this had me searching for circuitry books during my high school days. although i never ended up building more than a couple sine waves and strange ways to modulate them, i still feel an urge to organize electricity so i can control sound through the turning of knobs.
