Moog Memorymoog

via this auction

"Rare mid '80s Memorymoog. The last polyphonic synthesiser to be released by Moog Music before the company was sold to management and renamed Moog Electronics, it's often described as six minimoogs in one. While comparable to other polyphonic synthesisers of the time period, the Memorymoog sets itself apart with 3 audio oscillators per voice and greater preset storage capacity. The VCO's can be set to any combination of pulse (variable width), saw, and triangle waveforms and switched freely over a 4-octave initial range. Each voice also has its own 24 dB/Octave Low Pass VCF. In Mono mode, the Memorymoog functions as a traditional monophonic synthesizer with 1–18 oscillators selectable in unison. Specify any combination of Low, Latest or High Note Priority keying and Single or Multiple Triggering, for impressive degrees of control. A Chord Memory function (for single key, parallel chord "planing" effects) and an Arpeggiator are also included, while an independent LFO with 5 non-mixable waveforms allows simultaneous modulation of each VCO frequency, oscillator pulse width and filter cutoff frequency in any combination. VCO-3 can also be used as a Low or Audio Frequency modulation source. With careful programming, audio frequency modulation using Oscillator 3 can produce convincing pseudo acoustic and FM-like timbres typically not associated with analogue subtractive synthesis. Includes original cover, manual, sound chart and informational pamphlet. Includes Kenton MIDI kit. Completely serviced and calibrated (2 whole days of work!) prior to sale."
