Astonishing History of Synthesizers Series

The Light Bulb Is The Origin of The Synthesizer | Astonishing History of Synthesizers EP1

"When you think of the birth of the synthesizer, your mind probably recalls people like Bob Moog and Don Buchla. But the real pioneer of synth tech was...Thomas Edison? Watch as we take a closer look into the origin of the modern synthesizer."

The True ARP vs MOOG Lawsuit Story: Astonishing History of Synthesizers EP 2
Reverb

"Anyone with even a casual interest in the history of synthesizers has heard of the titanic struggle that took place in the mid 1970s when all of the companies were infringing on Bob Moog's filter patent. But the real story of what happened with patents and synthesizers in the 1970s is a bit more nuanced than you've probably heard. Watch as we dive into what really happened."

  1. TRUTH ALERT! BEWARE THE BS IN THIS VIDEO!
    I had hoped for and expected more from Marc Doty. This 'true' story unfortunately missed its 'mark' on a few important details.

    Repeating the BS about the 4012 filter of the 2600 being potted for IP, or the "hiding" thing we've seen far too many times. It's utter Bullshit. The ARP 2500 -BEFORE the 2600- has a 1006 Filtamp modules which VERY CLEARLY shows in its layout that is a moog ladder filter.

    I'd post a photo but don't have access to do so. Maybe Matrix can do so. Switched on Austin has the pics you need.

    There is ZERO need to dive into the 2600 submodule with an icepick to see anything. FWIW, the video here also has the wrong schematics to go with what they were saying. Showing the MUCH later 4072 filter while they're talking about the 4012. It was about 3+ YEARS before the new 4072 filter was in place in the production.

    The BS that Alan Pearlman started with a diode filter and just happened on the EXACT same result as moog isexactly that. BS. He did NOT design that filter! He was personally embarrassed when he found out that they -ARP- had used the moog patent and pushed for the new norton chip 4072 filter which ultimately replaced it.

    The video mentions the ARP Duophonic KBD but then kind of glosses over it later. It was a vry large part of this whole thing being a nothing, quickly resolved between the two men.

    MARK DOTY, YOU NEED TO RE-SHOOT THIS AND GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. AND THE BACKDROP GRAPHICS TOO.
    IT IS MORE THAN A LITTLE WRONG TO EVEN HINT THAT THE 2600 WAS ENCAPSULATED AS SOME KIND OF HIDING.

    INSTEAD OF SHARING THE TRUTH, YOU'VE PROLONGED AND AMPLIFIED THE LIES. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.

    I HAVE SPENT DECADES TRYING TO GET THE TRUTH OUT AND YOU DIDN'T HELP BY LETTING YOUR SPEAKER REPEAT BAD INFORMATION. As I said at the top, I'd expect you to do better.

    SHOUTing above intentional.

    Alan Pearlman DID design the 2500 VCO, with help form Dennis Colin.
