Vintage Moog Liberation Synthesizer SN 1271

via this auction

"If you want A true collectors item one of the original (Keytar) synths with that classic Moog sound this is it!

This is a Vintage Analog Monophonic/Polyphonic Synthesizer.

Features LFO with three selectable waves, aftertouch, that classic/famous Moog filter, filter and amp envelopes
attack, decay, release and sustain.

The Liberation features two monophonic voltage controlled oscillators and a polyphonic section that can play poly synth / organ sounds. Both oscillators can be set to triangle, sawtooth, or square waveforms and switched over a 3-octave range. The keyboard is aftertouch-sensitive and the neck features spring-loaded wheels for filter cutoff, modulation, and volume, as well as a ribbon controlled pitch bend. The Liberation has a single voltage-controlled filter and 2 ADSR envelope generators. A 40-foot cable connects the Liberation to its rack mounted half which houses the power supply and cv/gate output sockets.

This Moog Liberation synthesizer is in fairly good condition for its age. It does have surface wear like some scratches, and scuffs, but the keys are in great condition.

All functions and keys seem to respond as they should with one exception - The green volume slider cap is missing for Oscillator 1, and the volume slider only works when you set it in the near full on position, which may not be a big problem, but the volume slider fader for Oscillator 1 is showing signs of wear.

The ribbon controller, switches and wheels on the handle all seem to function fine.

- Power supply/ interface box
- 40' 6 pin XLR Cable that connects the keyboard to the power supply/interface box.
- A leather strap"
