Modded Moog Minimoog D w/Roland MPU-101
via this auction
"Modified by Studio Electronics (I believe in the mid '90s), or perhaps "MIDI-fied" would be the correct term. This MIDI-ready modification was done to many Minis in the LA area, I am told. Note the additional switches, the added LFO, etc. The functionality of these pro modded Moogs is greatly expanded! The Roland MPU-101 is the go-to MIDI interface here; this one is included with a group of labeled gray patch cables, as seen. There are paper copies of the SE guide and the MPU manual (probably a download). There is no other equipment, bag, case, or document included.
Cosmetically the Mini's paneling is quite nice, with just light wear and tear. I detect no foul odors. The keyboard plays very well, and the knobs turn and function as intended. There are several small marker labels applied to locations near the filter knobs, etc. as indicators for a former user. The synth is in good working shape, but of course a used 35-45 year old item that may periodically need attention; in my estimation the power supply capacitors would be the first thing you could tend to."
