Last year, Google made one of it's most innovative doodles when they created a playable and recordable guitar in honor of Les Paul. Now they are back at it with a tribute to legendary synth pioneer Bob Moog. Moog revolutionized the music industry with his analogue synthesizers in the 60's and 70's. Along with big acts of that generation, modern musicians like Moby and Flaming Lips have turned to Moog synths for their signature rich sounds.
The Moog Google Doodle is a fully functioning synth of it's own that can be triggered with mouse clicks or the computer keyboard. Along with the 24 note range, there are a slew of knobs that can be tweaked to alter the sound, from pitch and volume controls, to oscillator selectors and filter knobs.
Just like with the Les Paul doodle, users can actually record and playback their performances. They can then share them on Google Plus or get a link to where their recording will live on. Google continues to deliver great tributes to pioneers of the music industry and find ways to get us to waste the whole day playing around.
