A YouTube comment relates a story by Mad Mike:

Quote

The workers frequently gave names to their machines, so my grandfather was working with Ginny. They were making their money, going back and forth like this: the machine would come down and stamp the part out of metal, and he would take it out and put it in a pile. But one day he made a mistake, and put his hand in when he should have taken it out. And that one time, the machine refused to come down. That's what it means to be in tune with the machine, to feel it's spirit.

Not technically a pad, I guess, but this deserves its place. One of the best recordings ever made. Apologies for the exaggerations, I just really love this recording.

Not actually synths but I think it counts:

 

 

Accordion's a sort of mechanical additive synth anyhow.

 

 

Likewise, this is early digital convolution not synths but still:
