Ebay Description:

The Moog Memorymoog is a 61 key 6 voice polyphonic synthesizer, featuring a three oscillators (triangle/saw/pulse waveforms) and white/pink noise source, a resonant low pass analog filter, dedicated filter and amplifier ADSR envelopes, an LFO (random/triangle/saw/square waveforms), glide, arpeggiator, 100 presets, and CV/Gate I/O. The third oscillator can also function as an LFO.
