An Introduction To The Optigan

Optigan guru Pea Hicks demonstrates the instrument after the Museum of Making Music screening of Mellodrama.

The Optigan is an optomechanical sample playback keyboard that was made by Mattel in the 70’s.

We had a chance to talk briefly with Pea Hicks at the 2011 NAMM Show and he’s got some interesting things in mind for the Optigan platform, but he did not want to announce them officially, prematurely.
