Up for sale is my Studio Electronics MidiMini; this is one of the early versions with the original sound boards ripped out of a Minimoog Model D. Some might call it sacrilege, I call it a great way to get authentic, vintage tone in a 4U rack!

This unit is freshly returned from service at Rosen Sound in Burbank, CA. No oscillator drift, all pots, switches and functions in working order! But there's only so much I can describe in words; check out the demo video I made (above, after the pictures) to hear it in action. This thing is FAT. Floor-shaking basses, screaming leads, and saturated resonance; if you know you know, there's no substitute for the OG Moog sound.

The only functional issue I've found is that the VCO 1 pot is a little scratchy, and has a little trouble clicking into the rightmost waveform (PWM square). But if that's the only issue for this 40-year-old beast I'd say it's doing pretty well!

Cosmetically the item is in great condition; the faceplate is more or less pristine, with only some very light rack wear on the mounting tabs. The top of the unit has some scratches and scuffs (see pictures),as it's a bit of a tight fit getting this into a rack (but of course those scuffs will be invisible once mounted). Back and sides are in perfect condition.

Check out the pictures of the guts if you want to confirm that it has the original boards (look for the "MOOG" imprint on the yellow card). I'll be packing this synthesizer securely by hand in a large padded box with plenty of bubble wrap. PM with any questions, open to offers if it doesn't sell at asking price in the first month!
