The Ondioline (\'Pianoline\' in Germany and \'Orcheline\' in the Netherlands)is a monophonic vacuum tube instrument, one of the fathers of the modern synth.
The Ondiolin has a single oscillator, an eight octave touch sensitive keyboard and a series of filters. The volume was controlled by a knee lever. The Ondioline\'s keyboard is suspended on a series of springs, moving the keyboard adds vibrato to the sound.
During the Brussels World Fair (1958) the Ondioline was played on top of the Atomium.
