Vintage 1981 Moog / Realistic Concertmate MG-1 Analog Synth Synthesizer Keyboard. This one is in overall good used shape cosmetically - study all pics closely for details. Functionally it's in overall good working order, having been serviced by a qualified tech a few years ago. Since that time there are two issues. The calibration has drifted, so that will have to be scaled in order to play in standard 12-tone equal temperament. Also, the "tone sources" slider in the modulation section, which creates pitch vibrato, is currently not having any effect. These should be relatively straightforward fixes for a qualified tech. The keys all play smoothly and trigger cleanly/correctly. I'm not aware of any mods done to this unit. I'm not the original owner, so I don't know the full history of it.
The demo video features a demo track ("New Life" by Depeche Mode, sequenced in Cubase via a MIDI/CV interface) I made with this synth awhile back when it was still mostly scaled well. All sounds including drums are from the MG-1, multitracked. After that is a bunch of noodling, some of which I recorded when I created this listing in Sept 2022. It's not very "musical" but will give you a sense of the range of sounds this synth can make. Also included is the original owner's manual, in good/complete condition.
