Moog Source w Encore Midi 256 Patch Memory Expansion Rare SN 3577

via this auction

"The Source Midi Kit gives expanded memory, MIDI in/out, and other capabilities. The memory has been expanded to a total of 256 patches - 16 banks of 16 patches each, accessed from the front panel.

See the manual here, but keep in mind I think this is an earlier firmware for the SMK upgrade so some details may not be exactly the same as described.

Note: The output of the Source in general is very hot. Maybe the hottest of any synth I’ve ever used. This is partly by design as Moog designed the signal path hot to drive the OTAs into subtle distortion (fat bass tones), but there is a faint oscillator bleed when gained high on the mixer."
