Moog Memorymoog Plus SN 2558


via this auction

"The pinnacle of analogue excess, the Memorymoog was released in the early 1980s to compete in the burgeoning polysynth market. This synth is MASSIVE, with three oscillators per voice, times six voices, often characterised as having six Minimoogs under the hood of one synth. This description is not entirely accurate, as this synth is built around CEM3340 oscillators, as opposed to discrete Moog components, but the industry defining Moog low pass is redolent and rich. This is a Plus version of the Memorymoog, adding an internal two track sequencer and MIDI functionality. This particular instrument, SN 2558, has been thoroughly serviced, including a replating of all the key contacts, a rebuilt power supply, and a complete recapping of the entire synth. The exterior of this synth may show its age, but the internals are reviewed, rebuilt, and prepared for many more years of service."
