On the basis that the Pac-Man doodle is still available to play now, I imagine the Moog one will stay available.

Something about my work computer breaks up the audio. :-((
I was already familiar with the big modular Moogs (being an old prog rock guy from the start) but when I got loaned a MiniMoog to play in 1972 I was in heaven.
There are some VST software synths you can get that emulate analog instruments like the Mini. With a VST host program on your computer and a midi interface to your keyboard it's almost as good as having a Tardis.

PS is this folk?

Glenn, it's music - which is what Mudcat is about!! ;o)

I've got an original vinyl LP of Perrey and Kingsley's 'Spotlight on the Moog' - which also features a Jenny Ondioline... dates back to 1971.

"PS is this folk?"

absolutely !!!

The Mini Moog is a vintage old outdated obsolete technology instrument;
it has nice looking traditional wood panels;
and more to the point, is prone to tuning stability problems....

No offense, BWL, but I had whiskey before breakfast and then played it. Waaaaaaay cool.

My favorite Moog story:

Some pals and I went to the apartment of a bass-playing buddy who had got his hands on a 3-rack modular Moog. The big boy.

He showed us how he had been playing around with subsonics, putting his bass cabinet on a table and fiddling with the LFO frequency until the table started walking across the kitchen. A minor change of frequency made it walk back the other way. More hours (adult beverage-assisted of course) finding all the cool things we could do with it besides music. Blowing out matches, making the hamster wheel spin by itself, etc.

Fast forward to the inevitable knock on the door by the two cute girls who lived below. They had been wondering what was making the light bulbs in their apartment explode, pictures fall off the wall, fridge open and close, and all the while they never heard a sound. Then they remembered the mad scientist who lived upstairs....

Cheers
-Glenn
