Moog Music updated its site today, and also released several interesting new videos, including this mini-documentary on the history of the Minimoog.
This is the first in a series of videos, and focuses on the 70’s. Of special interest are the comments of one of Moog Music’s earliest engineers, Bill Hemsath, who discusses the Minimoog’s birth and sheds some light on what sets the Moog synthesizer apart from other analog synths.

Thanx for sharing this documentary! I can’t
get enough knowledge on all things MOOG.
I was blessed with an endorsement by the company
& therefore use my Little Phatty religiously.
All ov my recordings & remixes feature my synthesizer
in as many facsimiles as are conjured.
Long live Bob Moog.
I love moog… hope the company stays true to it's roots.
They've done a great job of continuing what Bob Moog started. Great new gear over the last couple years, too, like the Minimoog XL and the Slim Phatty.
