Moog Model 15 Legacy Modular System (USA/2015) SN 17

via this auction

Only 150 were hand-made by Moog (North Carolina/USA) in 2015. This one is serial number 17; obviously one of the first shipped to the UK (dual-voltage 120/220V, so no convertors required). One owner from new, apart from Klassic Keys GB. Rig comes with everything shown in photos, including special output cable. Original owner's manual (which is very informative ) & some patch charts + many patch leads + Swan flight-rack, even the original box! Note certificate of authentication...

If you are reading this, you will probably know exactly what this modular system is capable of. Basically, it is a portable version of the monster Moog system 900, which was extensively employed to produce "Switched on Bach" circa 1968. ANY sound/tone can be created....from scratch....and there is NO better tonality in the whole universe than a Moog system.......There are ten or so different modules (eg 995, 923 etc) all grouped in one "frame"; by plugging and connecting with the patch leads, the sounds are created, stemming from twin oscillators (921B), controlled by the master oscillator (921A), and so on.....

Introduction (by Bob Moog):-" a pro modular system, made with the same high quality, precisely-engineered components as the largest Moog studio synths. Its compactness and convenience make it ideal for live performance on location, yet it is expandable into a studio system of any size. It combines functional simplicity and logical layout with the versatility necessary for producing a full range of sounds & effects."

Musically, you will need a keyboard. Option (1) use a Moog model 951/ simply plugs into the rear of the unit, no grief....(2) use software + any contemporary CV/MIDI mini-synth/mother keyboard (there are many available).....(3) use an external sequencer (only), if you are into the massive "techno-house-music-modular-synthesis" stuff......
Condition:- virtually "as new". No more, no less.
