Google honors music pioneer Robert Moog with fully functioning synthesizer doodle
In honor of the 78th birthday of electronic music pioneer Robert Moog, tomorrow’s doodle on the Google homepage will feature a fully functioning recreation of his legendary Moog synthesizers. The doodle is equipped with working knobs for mixer, oscillators, filter, and envelope that spell out “Google”, and it has a mod wheel that you can control with your keyboard’s arrow keys. Much like the Les Paul Google Doodle that featured a playable guitar, the Moog doodle page will feature an image of a tape recorder that allows you to record up to four tracks and share your creations through Google+. The doodle is already live on the Japanese and Australian website, but it will land in the United States elsewhere tomorrow for Moog’s May 23 birthday.
