Samson MD13 MIDI Controller Spotted in Air Traffic Controller Room in Sully

video by Warner Bros. Pictures Warner Bros. Pictures

Phil A. spotted it in the film and sent in the pic below. I checked the trailer and you can see a couple of them in the background at 1:15. Always curious what the story was behind props like this. You can find more in the Synth Props and the Synth TV and Film labels.

  1. When the director wants the set to look busy, they make the set look busy.

  2. nowadays with the easy availability of cheap but good looking (usb-) midi controllers, affordable exotic looking synths and alike it's much cheaper to just buy some of these, screw them behind big metal sheets and relabel them with dymo instead of getting actual flight-control-room equipment or actual props being built exclusively for the shoot - since only synth nerds and flight controllers will notice something being not realistic in the end anyway.
