Mattel Optigan


Recommended Posts



Perhaps old news to most people here but I could not find a post about it so…

Apparently the ECS Music Synthesizer had a predecessor, the Optigan.


"The Optigan was released in 1971 by Optigan Corporation, a subsidiary of toy manufacturer Mattel, Incorporated of El Segundo, California with the manufacturing plant located nearby in Compton, California."

Anyways, it made me wonder if the people behind the Optigan were somehow involved in the ECS Synth?
