Dan (SynthDan1) from Acoustica Software demonstrates his dream synth – a rare 1969 Moog modular:
I fulfilled a life-long dream by buying a 1969 Moog Modular system.
This system was custom-ordered by Rick Powell, a musician and friend of Bob Moog, and was used on a number of pretty bad Moog albums in the 70s.
When I got it it had been restored by one of the top technicians in the United States but had been sitting for a while. The jacks were dirty and the keyboard was entirely non-functional. I shot this video just after getting the keyboard cleaned up and working. I had just reassembled and polished the wood on the keyboard’s cabinet.
This system is a dream to play. It’s far more stable (due to factory stability mods) than I could have hoped for, and the filter is just amazing. This patch shows two 901A oscillators tracking together through the resonant low-pass filter in a typical Minimoog-style setup, with the third 901 oscillator acting as LFO for the filter.
Better yet – there’s a few slots to fill…….
