In memoriam: Keith Emerson (1944-2016)

Last week, the world lost one of its most legendary keyboard musicians in Keith Emerson.  He revolutionized the use of synthesizers in rock music and influenced multiple generations of keyboardists.  Rest in peace, Keith.

1,000 to start the New Year

On

Happy New Year!  


900, the LEGO Synthesizers Project on Facebook, and more synths coming!

On

 

We've just hit 900, and 1000 is in our sights in the next few weeks!

I'm prototyping four, possibly five new synthesizers along the same lines as the Minimoogs. I've attached a pic (below) of Korg MS-20, Nord Stage, Yamaha DX7 and Roland Jupiter-8 in various stages of development.

These will probably be spun off into a separate Ideas project.  Between the Minimoogs, these new models and my Moog Modular (https://ideas.lego.com/projects/121474), I've decided to create a Facebook page simply called "The LEGO Synthesizers Project", where updates to all of the synth projects will be collected, as well as other links of interest.  The page already has several hundred followers, so please come join the growing community of LEGO synth lovers!
