Triadex Muse Electronic Yule Log Live Stream

Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers

"Long form live performance of the elusive Triadex Muse. The sliders will be modified from time to time during the stream. The output of the Muse is a series of dry square waves so effects were added to spice it up. Enjoy!

The Triadex Muse is a sequencer-based synthesizer, produced in 1972, and designed by Edward Fredkin and Marvin Minsky at MIT. It is an algorithmic, deterministic event generator, utilizing early digital integrated circuits to generate an audio output that can sound very musical. It produces a sequence of notes based on the settings of about a dozen different parameters, including four small sliders that control Volume, Tempo, Pitch, and Fine Pitch. Only a few hundred were ever made."


  1. I have uploaded Trovar's Triadex Muse simulator to under Trovar Triadex Muse synthesizer. site is no more. I cannot find any other hosting of the simulator. I tried writing to Matrixsynth about this but my ISP outgoing email is giving me an error, possibly due to my VPN. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Have fun driving everyone mad with your own Muse.

  2. OK, bottom line, no lie. I have one in Mint Condition that I bought when I was in High School in Boston. I know there is one in a Museum and only a few hundred produced. My question is: What is it worth? Thank you in advance.

    Sorry to say, not very much. A few hundred dollars. Like $300 in late 2020. That's if it's perfect.
