Moog_Lyra_(1973,_prototype)_-_touch-sensitive_mono_synth_of_Moog_Constellation_series,_Cantos.jpg(796 × 292 pixels, file size: 152 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)



This is a shot of part of Canto's collection of MOOG synths.

Visited the Cantos Foundation museum of electronic instruments and keyboards in February 2009 and took a lot of photos and videos.

Confession: when I first saw this, I squee-d in absolute and uncontainable glee.

Trackback: MatrixSynth - thanks for the link.

Several prototypes and early custom build systems of Moog synthesizer are stocked and displayed at Cantos Music Foundation, Canada.[1][2] For example:
