Synthesizers.com Prototype Auction to Benefit The Bob Moog Foundation


via this auction

"Synthesizers.com is auctioning this prototype of its Q170 MIDI Gates module to benefit the Bob Moog Foundation. This one-of-a-kind module was the first used and programmed by Roger Arrick. It is fully functional and warranted.

The Q170 MIDI Gates module produces gate signals from a stream of MIDI messages, either from a keyboard, a DAW or any MIDI source. Each of the 8 outputs can be programmed for one or more MIDI note messages or Continuous Controller messages. See Synthesizers.com web page for complete docs.

The prototype being auctioned varies slightly from the production model and the front panel shows the original name of Note Gates.

It is usable in any Moog-Unit 5U format modular synthesizer using an industry-standard Synthesizers.com power system. But not in a Moog modular which which use a different power system.

Face plate measurements are 8.75" x 2.125" x 2.25" deep behind the panel. Requires: +5v.

Roger Arrick, founder of Synthesizers.com, explains, 'I've been designing modular synthesizers for the past 20+ years and have been deeply inspired by Bob Moog's pioneering work since the 60's. It's an honor to support the Bob Moog Foundation's educational and historic preservation work through this auction, so please bid high and bid often! :) I usually keep my prototypes, so this is a rare offering.'"
