Minimoog, Moog, MPU-101, Roland @ 15 February 2016, Comments Off

minimoogmodeld“Mini Moog Model D- A complete restoration from the ground up, as they say in automotive land. This is a beauty: 9.99 out of 10. Complete service and calibration by former Moog Warranty service engineer, to the extreme of every pot, trimmer, card-edge connector, Cinch-Jones connector, all keyboard contact springs/ surfaces and switches being physically disassembled, de-oxidized/ cleaned with Cramolin, re-lubricated (pots, trimmers and switches only) and then reassembled. Pitch-bend and Modulation wheel pots are brand new sealed AB type J, as original. Complete electronic calibration / tuning to exact Moog factory standards. Power supply rebuilt / calibrated using overrated components. All controls feel smooth and positive. Keyboard is fast and accurate, and mechanically aligned. Cabinet work (poplar-hardwood) has been completely restored/refinished and looks brand-spanking new, with a beautiful dark grain pattern. This classic example was built in 1974. This is probably the best condition Mini-moog that I have seen or played in years.

This amazing classic axe comes with a mint condition Roland MPU-101, which is the best (fastest) MIDI to Gate/CV converters on the market and is very rare. The Moog’s Trigger Input has been professionally modified to invert the polarity of the industry-standard Roland trigger/gate and is easily un-doable with simple tools, but why? (Moog products of this time had an inverted trigger polarity from all other synth manufacturers, and are intended to be driven by a Moog Sequencer output only). This rare interface allows MIDI functionality and; thus, defacto computer control for one of the fattest sounding classics available…tweeze the filters in real-time and rerecord in playback mode while the track plays back. Play faster, hipper, more correct bass lines after editing, etc.; the list goes on. This little trick made me sound like a player with great chops and groove.

Photos are shown without the stock base-plate mounted; it had seen better days. The original is just shyte chip-board. I have replicated the base with high quality Baltic birch plywood, just because; it should last forever.

Moog factory service documents with calibration, schematics, PCB/component art are included.

Roland MPU-101 schematics and owners/operators info is included

The unit is sold ONLY with the Roland MPU-101 as a set. Two interface control cables are required and included (one 1/4 in to 3.5mm Switchcraft connectors on each, approximately 1 meter in length), for the separate Gate and CV input. See photo.

Both units are wired for standard North American AC- 120VAC/ 60Hz- can easily be rewired internally by any competent tech, or run with an external transformer (220-240VAC/ 50Hz, with 0.25 to 0.5 A nominal current rating ) for most of the rest of the world (Japan is unique at 100VAC/ 50Hz). Both units have non-removable hardwired AC cables, as is stock.” Link

“I am offering up my MPU101 which I do not use anymore. It is in great shape, and has been tested and every function works. There are some small marks from normal use but nothing major and has been used in a smoke free studio. I’ve had it for about 20 years. It was used when I use to have a bunch of Roland analog gear (System 700, Jupiter 8, Juno 60).

I have most recently used it with my Doepfer system. But I have moved away from Euro Rack” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Roland MPU 101 Midi to CV converter that can control up to 4 monosynths at once. Has a polyphonic mode too for synth insanity! You can use the gate outs to trigger percussion type of sounds too… basically whatever receives a gate signal. And you can use the “dynamics” control voltages for things like filter cutoff as well. It’s a really good machine for anyone with a monosynth or a modular synth. It’s the type of thing that Aphex Twin would use but you can use it for any genre that uses analogue synths, techno, drum and bass, etc” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
