Mammoth 5MU System With Many Extras - Smegmar The Medicant & Sysyphus


via this auction

List of modules at the listing and captured below.

"Large-format modular system offers: 40 modules of various brands and 150 Synthesizer.com modules. In addition, there are various power-related modules, mounted in the front and the rear.

The system is 275 MU’s front face panels spaces plus 32-more in the rear. Featuring: 27 full-range multi-waveform oscillators, 12-filters, 3 discrete MIDI interfaces, and 4 sequencers. ( not including the Matrixbrute features)

It has taken over a year to purchase and assemble all of the modules: this system is completely ready to use. Most of this system is housed in solid walnut cabinetry.

There are a few modules I bought in used condition, but the rest are new purchases. The cabinetry, controllers, and cabling are all new. After assembly, this system has not been moved, exposed to smoke, or touched by anyone but me.

The entire system is in excellent condition, with a couple of VERY minor scuffs where modules have been periodically installed and/or relocated...

History: I first purchased a Moog System-55 re-issue modular. I discovered Synthesizers.com when doing a simple google search. I learned their clone of the Moog Dual Sequencer Compliment wing was not only superior to that of the Moog’s, it was nearly 1/3 the price. So from there, I bought a System 66 and A/Bd both the tonal and functionality aspects of each to discover the Synthesizers.com sounded better to my ears, had more functions, and was more stable. I sold the Moog, and steadily expanded the system it is today.

I am 100% satisfied with this system.

It would take upwards of 6 months to get all of these modules (and a couple of these you may not able to get at all) and a significant amount of time to install and wire the modules, and assemble the large manual binder.

It also took 2 full days to convert 16 of the modules into their revised versions, yet I have not added the price of the conversion kits to the list below."

££: These 2 modules are slightly smaller than a standard MU-format module,(MOTM) and as such, the mounting holes are slightly closer to each other both vertically and horizontally.This makes for a less secure mount, and also required a spacer that I custom-made to fill the gap ( see photo). Special care should be taken if ever these modules are to be removed. I suggest for the future that either a thicker ledge be mounted inside that cabinet at these points OR the holes in the module itself be lengthened vertically. Also, these required a different power header configuration.

** The pre-drilled hole on the bottom-row mounting-strip was askew in the cabinet where this module resides. To correct this on the wooden mounting ledge meant risking a larger unusable hole, so I made the mounting hole in the module itself a little larger.

EXTRAS:

1- Arturia Matrixbrute: duophonic synthesizer. This one is mint condition, all original packaging and papers. This has 28 CV/Sync/trigger i/o mini-plug connections, perfect for interfacing with this modular via Q122 interface panel listed above.The Matrixbrute also has a powerful sequencer over MIDI, so explore endless possibilities! $2,299

2- Eight mini-to-1/4” cables are included which I have labeled.$64

3- MACKIE 1402VLZ4 14-channel Mixer. Depending how you configure your monitoring from the modular, you might need a lot of channels for a submix.

The mixer also comes in handy if you want to use its aux sends with any of the multiple FX this modular system has. Also, it allows you to use headphones to hear everything without firing up your speakers. $400

4- Shure SM58 dynamic mic and cable. You will want this for the sampler module. $90

Sub Total 2,853



Freebies!

1- Custom made labeled 6-channel long TS snake ( comes in handy!)

2- Customized manual binder

3- (3) Long MIDI cables

4- (2) Matching shelving units on castors, safely holds each modular tower

and allows easy access/moving.

5- Custom name plates mounted front and rear

Grand total $55,943

(This total does not include tax or shipping on MULTIPLE deliveries.)

Sale price: $51,000-FIRM

When you add shipping, and the occasional tax, which totaled about $3,000, I have approximately $59,000 in this system.

I am also tossing-in about $500 of goodies.

As stated earlier, a good deal of this modular has not been used- the jacks are virgin.

I have spent MANY hours of labor assembling this system, and the binder.

Some of these modules took a long time to come in, and some are rare."
