Google doodle tribute to Robert Moog lets you play, record music
MANILA, Philippines - Google has done it again.
Keeping with its tradition of ingenious, entertaining, and sometimes touching "Google doodles," Google today (May 23) came out with a tribute to Moog sythesizer inventor Robert Arthur "Bob" Moog, who was born on May 23, 1934.
Today's Google doodle features a playable keyboard and mixer, along with oscillators and filters. The fun doesn't stop there--the "tape deck" on the right lets you record your musical creations, which you can later share through a link or through Google+.
According to a report on The Next Web, Moog is considered to be "the father of the modern synthesizer."
