Google’s brower-based Moog Synthesizer is still available

Back in 2012, Google celebrated the birthday of Robert Moog, of Moog Synthesizer fame, by building a Google Doodle that is a browser-based Moog Synthesizer connected to a 4-track reel-to-reel recorder, and it’s still online.

“When people hear the word ‘synthesizer’ they often think ‘synthetic’—fake, manufactured, unnatural,” Joey Hurst wrote for the Google Doodle. “In contrast, Bob Moog’s synthesizers produce beautiful, organic and rich sounds that are, nearly 50 years later, regarded by many professional musicians as the epitome of an electronic instrument.”

Google’s synthesizer has brief, simple instructions so you can start making noises, record them, and share them via link right away. Folks who are into experimental or ambient music or noise might find it (and some of the technical details included) of interest. So what are you waiting for?
