It’s Friday, folks, and I’ve discovered a great way to get in the weekend mood that I think you’ll enjoy.

Earlier in the week, Google Arts & Culture created a new digital exhibit celebrating different pioneers of electronic music. It also released an interactive 3D synth tool as a part of that — and it’s highly addictive.

You can head to the site on your phone or desktop browser and line up five well-known syth machines to play music using pre-defined grids and dials. These synths include the Moog Memorymoog, the ARP Odessy, the Akai S900, the Roland CR-78, and the Fairlight CMI.

Don’t worry if you don’t know much about making music, you can try auto-generated randomized patterns, and the algorithm makes sure it produces something that’s in sync. Be assured, it won’t sound horrible.
