Moog (founded by Robert Moog) was one of the first manufacturers of modular synthesizers. Although they offered a wide variety of alternate musical interfaces over the years, they tend to be associated with using a normal keyboard controller to make it easier for musicians trained on traditional instruments such as the piano or organ to play a synthesizer. Indeed, one of the earliest and most famous albums created using a Moog modular synth was Switched On Bach by Wendy Carlos. Moog is often associated with the “East Cost Synthesis” approach.« Back to Glossary Index
