Moog The Phone Controller

images via this auction

"This auction is for a MOOG The Phone Controller. It powers up great, but I am unsure of how to properly test this unit. I attempted to do some research this, but came up empty handed. I know that MOOG is famous for their Synthesizers, but I have never heard or seen anything like this. This is truly a great piece for any MOOG enthusiast. It includes power supply, and phone cord. The unit itself is in great condition, with no major blemishes. Good Luck!!"

According to the MOOG Archives, in 1983: "Sale of company to management. Emphasis on Contract Manufacturing. Attempt to enter into telecommunications market with a microprocessor-controlled "feature telephone", initially named "Telesys 3", later "The Operator". Design and manufacture "Song Producer". Develop "SL8" and build prototype. Maintain repair operations for Moog products. Produce the "SSK Concertmate" synthesizer for Tandy Corp (Radio Shack)."


  1. I heard you could could swap minimoog patches with others around the world with this and CompuServe. You just need an RJ-45 to S-Trig adaptor.
