The Moog Liberation is a strap-on dual oscillator monophonic/polyphonic analog synthesizer with one voltage controlled 24dB/octave Moog filter (VCF) and one voltage controlled amplifier (VCA). It boasts a polyphonic section, which allows for synth-like chords, a ring modulator, noise generator, syncable VCOs, and a ribbon controller, located in the neck portion of the instrument.

It comes with two accessories, the interface/power supply and a 40′ cable. The instrument is in its original case, which is in excellent condition save light exterior wear.

  1. I’m starting a Kickstarter campaign so that I can purchase all of the tickets. Being one of a limited # of people who can use this type of keyboard well, this must be mine. 🙂

    1. OK, but what would everyone else GET from your Kickstarter? I think it would take more than the sight of your smiling face to get people to contribute. I think you are on the right track, though.

  2. I wanna win this so that I can audition for the Cameo reunion tour……..Word up bro!
    However I would still have to shop around for a codpiece!

    1. Your brother, your sister, and your momma too.
      Tell me what’s the word, uh word up.

      That has to be the worst sounding vocal of any hit song ever. Nevertheless, it works with the song.

  3. Whoa. Looking at the font and sliders on the panel of that thing reminds me of my old Moog Opus 3, aka, my first synthesizer.
