I know! How did they ever sell these keyboards that don't have a piano preset in the first place?!

On "An evening with Rick Wakeman", he tells the story of how he got his first Minimoog in 1971, when they were still brand new.

He was looking at them in stores, but way too expensive. Then he found an ad in the newspapers, where a guy was giving away a "keyboard". He went to check it out, and it was a brand new Minimoog. The guy didn't want it because it only played one note, and he was a piano player who didn't need that. So he got it more or less for free.

He didn't explain how the piano guy got it so cheaply that he could give it away, though. :facepalm:

However, being a Google product the tracking works a little too well.

And weirdly the filter behaves differently depending on where you are and what you've been up to...

Also you need to turn safe-search off if you want to see the ring modulator.

Awesome, Moog Foundation tweeted that over 28,000 ppl have watched Marc Doty's "how-to-use" video of the google synth.
Now it's on 33,000 views.

That's our own Automatic Gainsay.

He definitely didn't get it for free. But he got it for substantially less than it was worth at the time.

Yeah, now 33000 will start looking for "those minimoogs" and we'll NEVER find a good one.


Edit: Just in.
"Bob Moog Foundation ‏@MoogFoundation

BMF's Marc Doty #moogdoodle demo video just surpassed 100,000 views"

I stand corrected. Marc is our hero. After LA Times and ABC news posted articles about why Google has a Minimoog on the front page, views exploded it seems.

I figured the VSE boards would be on fire today. Actually one of my very hip sophomore students pointed it out to me. This led to an introduction for high schoolers of basic synthesis. I just *happened* to have two monotrons and Boss DR 110 handy. The rest is high school legend.

And hey, VSE should post a review on this site! It's more useful than a whole raft of 90s keyboards! Yes, Google, you can track me as I lose myself for several hours doodling on your Moogle...

Walter out.
