Hello another 1940s synth, made by Jenny, the Ondioline, anybody any ideas about what modules would produce the sound of this early synthesizer?
I have no idea but suddenly a Stereolab song title makes sense
Well, myself and Worker 13 created a Clavioline instrument, a while back and it has a more reedy sound than that.
Songs that the Clavioline were used on:
Beatles-- Baby, your Rich man now! All on YouTube.
True, Stereolab had a song titled that … but there was reputably no Ondioline on that track.
Ondioline was famously used by this fine fellow-Jean Jacques Perrey:
The first three minutes of His Holy Modal Majesty is pretty much an Ondioline solo by Al Kooper.
I remember thinking, when it first came out, that it was the coolest keyboard sound ever.
An ondioline-inspired oscillator was recently added to the EaganMatrix, and this video has some interesting specifics about how it works behind the scenes:
