<h2>The Moog Modular Synthesizer</h2><br><br>Some of rock and roll's most memorable (and regrettable) moments have come from a synthesizer. <br><br>Designed by Robert Arthur Moog, the Moog Modular Synthesizer first appeared in 1965, but it didn't make much of a splash until 1967, when the Doors and the Monkees released albums featuring the Moog by the end of the year. <br><br>Moog synthesizers come in several styles, ranging from the relatively portable Minimoog (pictured above) from 1970 to the Old School, which debuted in 2008. <br><br>Photo: Courtesy of [[xref:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Minimoog.JPG|Krash|Krash]]
