Dance your way into the weekend with Google’s funky synth simulator


It’s Friday, my friends, and I’ve found a great way to get you in the mood for the weekend that I think you’ll enjoy.

Earlier this week, Google Arts & Culture has created a new digital exhibition celebrating various pioneers in electronic music. He also released an interactive 3D synthesis tool as part of that – and it’s very addicting.

You can go to the site on your phone or desktop browser and line up five well-known syth machines to play music using preset grids and dials. These synths include the Moog Memorymoog, ARP Odessy, Akai S900, Roland CR-78, and Fairlight CMI.

Don’t worry if you don’t know much about making music, you can try out some auto-generated random patterns and the algorithm makes sure it produces something that is in sync. Rest assured, it won’t sound awful.
