Synthorama - Moog Modular, Voyetra and Oberheim Room

images here

Some notes on the room:
Upon entering the area, on the left is a massive Moog vocoder and the Moog modulars. Yes, plural. In the far left corner is a Buchla Music Easel. From what I could tell it was not hooked up or working. To the right of the Buchla along the back wall of the room is a Steiner-Parker modular (hooked up and working) and to the right of that were two Voyetra 8s with keyboard controller, also working. On top of the Voyetra 8s was a Gleeman Pentaphonic not hooked up or working as far as I could tell. To my surprise the Gleeman's knobs felt rather light and cheap. For some reason I expected them to have a bit more weight to them. On the right wall of the room, opposite the Moog modulars, were the rest of the Octave Plateau synths followed by the Oberheims. See the images for the specifics.

Remember to click on the "All Sizes" link for each shot you'd like to see full size in the set. Click on the synthorama label below for the full set of posts on my visit to the Synthorama synthesizer museum. Note all images are going up including the "bad" ones.

Update: some notes on the Gleeman and Buchla via Martin: "The Gleeman Pentaphonic Clear also works properly. I have it not connected because I am still searching a better place than it has now. This synth earns a better place !!

Also the Music Easel is working fine. Actually it is not connected, I know. In the whole museum there are not a lot synths which do not work. Some of them have bad keyboard contacts or noisy potmeters or sliders but they are working."


  1. better shots of the Easel, plz?

  2. I *think* that is all I got. I took over 700 images in order as I walked through the museum. It took me about one hour straight to take them all. The buchla was tucked in a corner and I couldn't exactly pull it out of there to take more shots. If I do have any more shots of it, I'll be sure to call it out.
