Celebrating the 78th birthday of the inventor of the Moog synthesizer, Robert Moog, Google came up with an interactive doodle on Wednesday.

Wednesday's doodle allows user to create their own music using the QWERTY keys of their keyboard and the arrow keys to switch between the volume, mixer, oscillators, filter and envelope controls to tweak the sound exactly like the real thing.

The Moog synthesizer was famous among the first generation of rock music and it revolutionized music during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.

The doodle features a synthesizer which you can play by using keyboard or by clicking on the keys. The doodle will also allow you to record your creative music using the tape recorder found to the right of the synthesizer. The recorded music can then be shared via a link or through Google+.

Moog was born on May 23, 1934 in New York and died from an inoperable brain tumor on August 21, 2005. In 1970, he received a Grammy Trustees Award for lifetime achievement.

This is not the first time Google doodle has appeared in the form of a musical instrument. Last year, Google honored guitar legend Les Paul with a doodle of a playable guitar.
