Moog Musonics Sonic V

This one in via Soviet Space Child spotted on Switched On.

Note the panel graphic coloring is different compared to others.

"This Sonic V is fully functional and in decent condition, with a few scratches, and a couple missing slider, switch, and knob caps. The Sonic V was never put into full production; as such, it is designed internally like a prototype with some limits to it's integrity, and is available for Local Pickup only.

The Sonic V is a rare predecessor model to the Sonic Six, designed during Musonics' ownership of Moog. In regards to the synth architecture, the Sonic V remains very similar to the Sonic VI, but has a diode filter rather than the Moog ladder filter. It has two audio VCOs with a 3 octave range, selectable waveforms, and manual pulse width contrl over the Square wave. The LFO is really made up of 2 LFOs mixed together with selectable waveforms and individual rate control for each, as well as a Master rate control for both, crossfading mixer, and a unique Transient feature for each that has a ramp down effect on the rate. The modulation section can also be used to trigger the Envelope. Other features include Ring Modulation, White Noise source, AD & ADS envelope generator, and built in speaker. The Sonic V is a very unique design from Moog's history and really excels at effect sounds."
