Some sort of Instrument, or something, inspired by the Chernobyl Control Room/Chernobyl in general.

The instrument would be made out of the same/similar metal to the one used in the control panels, shaped like the control panels, and have buttons and switches that look like the ones on the control panels.

Especially if it's constructed from weapons grade plutonium

Shows f**king bad taste. Chernobyl exploded in our back yard, and spred radio activity more than 5 times Hiroshima in the surroundings.
What next - do we see the Hiroshima sample pack? - listen all the sounds of burned people.
In mid/northern Finland, Sweden and Norway, after more than 30 years of the Chernobyl, we still mesure residue in our soil, blueberries etc.
And the Russian authorities didn't even care to inform their neighbours the explosion. :dog:

It isn't meant to be an insult or anything, just an idea.

So the Hiroshima sample pack is still a possibility then?

I quite like the idea. And I love the image that was posted by whyterabbyt. Old military style UIs look great.

Whilst I was half joking about the thing glowing in the dark - I would totally consider that as a design feature.

Its an image of a valve signal generator by Dan Wilson at the Hideaway Studio website; he reconditions old valve gear, has also done some sample sets with them as well.

Also see Hainbach's videos for someone actively using similar old signal generators and the like.

Ive actually got one that I think is the exact same model as the picture, that I bought off ebay for about Β£15 as a nonworking shell. Got 3 or 4 others as well. I dont have the skills to rebuild them, and doubt I could afford to pay someone to do that, but in the never-never land that is my list of ideas and intentions, it'd be nice to turn them into control surfaces for something.

Some of WOKs vst's were a bit in that style

Yeah. I was thinking like maybe a nuclear rod type thing. Like, the Simpsons green glowing rod thing. Oof.
