In this workspace you will find analog testing and measuring equipment from the 50s and 60s that is not primarily intended for making music, but can be used to this end. Some of these devices were once seen in the first electronic music studios where Stockhausen worked, amongst others. The tape recorder technique, an essential component of the first electronic music and musique concrete, is also present in this studio. In studio 1 you will find sine and pulse oscillators, tube sine wave generators and filters, passive octave filter (LC), HP test and measurement instruments like filters, function and noise generators, pulse train generators and more, mostly manual controlled but also some early voltage controlled instruments Together, they essentially form one large, unique synthesizer.
