The Eaton-Moog Multi Touch Keyboard

My favorite printed circuit design project

by Chris Stack

Very saddened to hear of the death of John Eaton. There’s an old saying that goes something like, “If we see far, it is because we stand on the shoulders of giants.” John Eaton and Bob Moog were exactly the type of people to which this referred.
Bob Moog MTS schematicIn addition to my time as Marketing Manager at Moog Music, I also did some printed circuit board design work for Bob back in the 90s. The Eaton-Moog Multi-Touch Sensitive Keyboard is the main project on which I worked.

Very proud that Bob considered it “his greatest contribution to the world of music”. I also did a small bit of schematic work on the Ethervox MIDI Theremin, but that’s another story. Speaking of theremins, I shot this video back then as well:

I think of these guys every time I play one of the now many products and instruments that do similar (and greater) things… the Haken Continuum, Linnstrument, ROLI Seaboard, and many, many others, from hardware to iOS apps. All “seeing farther”, and I bet that makes these giants pretty happy.

Chris Stack Xenography Album

“…an album of inspired soundscapes. Feel free to stream it first if you have any doubts. Rest assured that mere seconds into the first track, you will know that you are in capable hands.” - Ted Stahl

On “Xenography” a vast array of synthesizers, piano, nylon string guitar, Moog Guitar, shakuhachi and voices pure and processed, come together to create a soundtrack for travels to oblique destinations.
