Any of the electronic synthesizers as created by Dr. Robert Moog or the man himself. (rhymes with vogue)
Dr. Moog started his career in 1954 and in the 60's invented the synthesizer, a musical instrument that creates and modulates sound waves using voltages. The earliest Moogs were huge cabinets; later models were made smaller and less expensive for greater accessability by musicians.
This type of synthesis is refered to as analogue (as opposed to digital which was made popular in the 80's due to its reduced cost). Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in analogue sound due to its classic warmth and richness.
popular models include: the Minimoog, the Rogue, the Taurus II, the Polymoog, the Memory Moog, the Liberation and most recently the Minimoog Voyager
Today, MoogMusic company assembles synthesizers and other analogue gear in Ashville, SC.
