A synthesiser designed as a compositional aide by MIT professors Marvin Minsky and Edward Fredkin around 1970 , the Triadex Muse is considered by many to be one of the first digital sequencers.
Despite sub-par sales figures, the Muse achieved widespread use amongst the musical avant-garde, its oddball design and complicated circuitry contributing to an entirely left-field user experience. Now, thanks to coding whizz-kid Donald Tillman, you can experience this rare piece of machinery for yourself.
Experience the long-lost with a virtual version of the extremely rare Triadex Muse synthesiser, now available online in HTML format.
This is hardly the first piece of gear to be ported into HTML form, the notorious HTML-909 springing to mind (which was sadly removed at Roland’s request earlier in the year). Ease of access is always a good thing, especially where the rarest of most expensive synths and drum machines are concerned.
Try out the Triadex Muse here.
