Bob Moog Has Left The Building

Bob Moog… is dead, and has been since last week. Not just a weird name on keyboards, Moog was a pioneer of electronics and by extension – music. He invented the synthesizer as we know it, spawning dozens of albums in the process.
“While Moog’s Modular Synthesizer defined the synthesizer, it was the Minimoog that made the synthesizer a widely used instrument. The Mini was a portable version of the modular synths, with internal patchings and switches that made it easy to quickly switch between sounds. It was widely popular, being used on thousands of albums. The Mini is more popular than ever today, with vintage Mini’s selling for thousands of dollars. Moog recently introduced an updated version, the Minimoog Voyager.”
