Studio Electronics Midi Moog

via this auction

"In 1984 My dear friend and musical collaborator the great Saxophonist Michael Brecker asked me if I wanted to buy his Mini Moog. he was getting a new instrument to play electronics out of and the Moog wouldn't work..I bought it..It had a magic sound..Fat and warm.Every Moog was abit different.this was 1986 I got a Roland interface to Midi it so I could use it with my Linn 9000 Drum machine and sequencer.I was Working with great producers and this Moog made it onto some amazing albums..Artists Like Miles Davis,Luther Vandross,Chaka Kahn,Whitney Houston,David Sanborn,Roberta Flack..When you hear the synth bass that is my mini Moog. In 1990 I was making the Album Power of Love By Luther Vandross in LA at A&M studios and I was getting a new rack built..I decided to go to Studio Electronics and get the Mini Moog Rack Mounted..I tested it before hand to make sure that my prized oscillator boards would not be replaced with other boards.It came back perfect. Over the years I have used it on many of my productions and it has been on Grammy and Platinum albums..This instrument rocked..I am now in a different direction and I do not use it anymore so It's time to move it on..It is a great piece of History and if you have the money you can have it..I have no problem hanging onto it but there are several other pieces I want to get and this will help me get there."
