Moog MicroMoog model 2090 vintage analog synthesizer

via this auction

"Moog Micromoog model 2090 in excellent condition. All functions and keys work properly, all knobs and sliders are in good condition and operate smoothly, ribbon is in good shape, exterior is in excellent condition, the only defect is one small dent in the plastic above the high C sharp key.

The Micromoog is a one-oscillator (plus sub-oscillator) classic Moog monosynth from the '70s. It is capable of the classic "beefy" Moog basses and typical Moog synth "whistles", but also of a lot more.

It features a very cool routable S&H circuit that one can even use to simulate an arpeggiator or a sequencer, and many other modulation & routing options that make this little synth very versatile.

It features a ribbon controller instead of the more customary pitch wheel, while it does retain the usual Moog modulation wheel, which you can use to control several parameters.

The filter is unmistakably MOOG, and you can also process external sounds through the Micromoog - very useful feature.

This is the version with the keyboard output level knob on the rear, and of course it has the audio input like all Micromoogs enabling you to run other sound sources through the filter.

In top notch operating condition. In the time that I've owned it I've replaced one of the voltage regulators, and also replaced some of the ICs in the envelope circuit (I also installed sockets when replacing them.)"
