The Optigan: A Brief Overview
Before we dive into the treasure trove of Optigan discs, let's take a moment to introduce you to the instrument itself. The Optigan, short for "Optical Organ," was a groundbreaking electronic keyboard produced in the 1970s by the Mattel Toy Company. It was designed to bring the joy of music-making into homes, offering an accessible and affordable alternative to traditional organs and pianos.
At the heart of the Optigan's magic were its transparent optical discs, each containing a unique collection of pre-recorded sounds, loops, and musical patterns. These discs covered an array of musical genres, from rock and pop to jazz and orchestral arrangements. Users could effortlessly switch between discs to create rich and diverse musical compositions.
