There’s not much to say. The Bible of knob-synth lovers. The Holy Grail, so to speak. “The A-Z of Analogue Synthesisers” is a comprehensive encyclopedia with so much information about all the great and not so great synthesizers specs and history.

BOB MOOG – Synthesizer Pioneer
(by Dieter Dixon, Michelle Moog-Koussa and Ubel Zuiderveld),

Google’s special present has certainly not gone without notice. The “Google Mini” is a perfect memorial – admittedly not the real thing, but still: the Minimoog is playable! You can tweak the buttons! There’s a 4-track recording device! What a great way to bring the Minimoog back to life around the globe. The perfect gift for Robert Moog. A great gift for us all.”
