A quick run on the 1974 Moog System 55 Modular Synthesizer property of Conservatorio S. Cecilia in Rome. The 960 sequencer drives 3 saw vcos (row a), the cutoff of lowpass filter (row b); row c is for seq clock modulation. Noise and a fourth square vco for accents and deep sounds. Audio straight from – far in the room – a couple of Genelec monitor. Hats of to Bob Moog.

Synced MPC 500 to the Tenori-On iOS app and sequenced some stuff.
Gear used in this video:
Standuino frauAngelico drum machine (through the Kaosspad Mini) – www.standuino.eu,
Standuino fraAngelico digital synthesizer (through the Korg Monotron filter and Earthquaker Devices Rainbow Machine),
Moog Slim Phatty (Bass),
Kurzweil MicroPiano (E-Piano),
Akai MPC500 (additional drums),
Korg Kaosspad Quad (FX),
The Standuino synths are MIDI-Sequenced with the Tenori-On TNi iPad app and the rest by the Akai MPC500.

Synth jam held on March 9th, 2013 by REWO (René van der Wouden). Recorded in one go.
The Memorymoog was the last official synth, made back in 1982, to come from Moog before they eventually went bankrupt and out of business. As a result, it was never fully completed; as MIDI technology was just coming out, the Memorymoog never did get to fully implement MIDI capability. There were two versions of this synth: the Memorymoog and the Memorymoog Plus (the version can be determined via the Autotune feature). The Plus model added a basic MIDI implementation, a Sequencer, and it also had more stable oscillator control, making the Plus model more valuable to collectors than the standard model.
Due to the seemingly incomplete MIDI implementation as well as a less than perfect user-interface/operating system, some popular upgrades and retrofits have been produced and these days it is very common to find Memorymoogs with these retrofits. The most valuable upgrade is the Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog (LAMM), originally designed for the standard model, but also available for the Plus model. It provides a redesigned operating system, advanced MIDI functions and improved hardware components. Kenton Electronics produces MIDI retrofits for both the standard and Plus Memorymoog models (Kenton and Lintronics can even install these upgrades for you, considering the delicate nature and value of the Memorymoog). These upgrades can substantially increase the stability, MIDI functionality and value of the Memorymoog.
Background video description:
From my (eventually) upcoming Italo Dance / ’80s Synth Pop album. This song is entirely made with a Memorymoog (all parts except the Simmons drums, of course).
CV guru Dan Deacon dropped by the Moog Sound Lab where he grabbed a mountain of gear wired it up, and piloted his drones through an ever evolving soundscape anchored by 2 Minitaurs and 2 MF-107 Freq-Boxes. To further expand his sound, Dan also incorporated dueling MF-103 Phasers and a pair of CP-251 Control Processors.

This video shows the result of using the Koushion step sequencer app and the Moog Multi-Pedal (in MIDI-to-CV conversion mode) to create a tempo-synced filter step sequence on the Moog Sub Phatty synthesizer. The analog CV out of the Multi-Pedal is connected to the filter CV input on the Sub Phatty.

Improvisation in one go by REWO on the Moog Minimoog Voyager supported with a 3-line sequence by the DSI Mopho, Moog Little Phatty and the Arturia MiniBrute. The bass-strings come from the Korg Wavestation EX.

The mighty analog Moog Sub Phatty Synthesizer is under control of Q960 Sequential Controller. As usual, Row A is for Pitch, Row B is for Filter opening. On this video, while sequence is running, there are tests for EGs snap, OSC reset under key Gate, fattyness of SubOsc, wild brutality of Multidrive distortion. Such a lovely, little analog machine.
Moog Sub Phatty has two oscillators, one sub oscillator, one noise generator, one lowpass filter transistor ladder and a dual distortion unit pre/post filter. On this video, you’ll find a walkaround of waveforms and treatment ready to go with sub oscillation and distortion.
