Moog Source Monophonic Analog Synthesizer with Patch Memory

The Moog Source is a monophonic analog synthesizer that is digitally controlled by a Z80 microprocessor. It was introduced in 1981 and discontinued in 1985. It was Moog's first synth to include patch memory. For it's era, it is the most similar in sound to the the Minimoog with its two oscillators and 24 dB Moog Ladder Filter. It is the only Moog synthesizer to feature a flat-panel membrane keyboard instead of buttons, knobs, and sliders. The panel graphics were designed with a color palate that clearly organizes the functions and also makes this unit distinct among all other Moogs. This iconic synthesizer was most famously used for the bass line on "Blue Monday" by New Order.

This unit has some scuffs on the aluminum panel and a couple of dings and scratches in the wood. Previous owner carved their driver's license on the back of the unit near the power input (see photo 8). It was professionally serviced to fix a defect in the Crazy Source. The keys were serviced and all feel and function like new. The unit was also thoroughly cleaned with an eye on preventative maintenance. The keys on the membrane panel all function as they should.
