This set of videos, via John Christopher Dobrian, explores the Moog modular synthesizer from the Classic Laboratory for Analog Sound Synthesis (“CLASSic” synthesizer studio) at UC Irvine.
About The CLASSic Moog Modular
The Gassmann Electronic Music Studio in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts has a small studio of “vintage” synthesizer equipment for students to gain hand-on experience with analog synthesizers of the late ’60s, ’70s, and early ’80s. The CLASSic Synthesizer Studio (Classic Laboratory for Analog Sound Synthesis) features a Moog modular synthesizer (circa 1970), two early Buchla synthesizers (1970s), a Roland Jupiter 6 (early 1980s), and other old synthesizers. A computer workstation is included to send control voltages to the pre-digital synthesizers, as well as to capture clean recordings of the sounds produced by those devices.
