Moog Minimoog D Synthesizer with Roland MPU-101

via this auction

"This amazing classic axe comes with a mint condition Roland MPU-101, which is the best (fastest) MIDI to Gate/CV converters on the market and is very rare. The Moog's Trigger Input has been professionally modified to invert the polarity of the industry-standard Roland trigger/gate and is easily un-doable with simple tools, but why? (Moog products of this time had an inverted trigger polarity from all other synth manufacturers, and are intended to be driven by a Moog Sequencer output only). This rare interface allows MIDI functionality and; thus, defacto computer control for one of the fattest sounding classics available...tweeze the filters in real-time and rerecord in playback mode while the track plays back. Play faster, hipper, more correct bass lines after editing, etc.; the list goes on. This little trick made me sound like a player with great chops and groove."
