Someone once told me that a Hewlett-Packard sound generator was used for some of the sounds on Forbidden Planet. Any truth to this? I work for HP, and was traveling last month...I saw one in a glass case at the office, and it triggered my memory of this.

I'd have to ask Bebe about that. My impression is that all sounds originated from Louis' circuits. There's no evidence of any oscillators in any of the photographs of their studio, but that doesn't mean anything.
