We first got a look at the Google Doodle celebrating Robert Moog's 78th birthday on yesterday, and now it's live in the US. Synthtastic! But, uh, how do all of those knobs and sliders work? Here's an excellent explainer on how to play the synth by Moog Music Chief Engineer Cyril Lance. Hint: Start out by experimenting with the panels on the left—the mixer and oscillators—before you go nuts with the envelopes and filter. Enjoy! [Moog Music]
