Moog's first semi-modular synthesizer comes in a desktop format and offers a classic subtractive syntheiszer voice (VCO + noise/external input + mixer, cascade filer with lowpass or highpass characteristics, AD envelope + LFO + voltage controlled mixer) and 32 patch points for modular fun. Then there's a MIDI/CV converter, a miniature keyboard and a 32-step sequencer with 64 memory locations. The units can be removed from it's housing an used as a 60HP Eurorack module in another case.
1 VCO with simultaneous sawtooth and pulse. Frequency selection at the panel with a range of one octave. Frequency range via 1V/oct: 8Hz to 8kHz (16kHz via LFO or CV). Waveform switch selects which wave is sent to the mixer.
Modulation source selectable: EG/VCO MOD or LFO (EG normalized to VCO Mod input). Modulation intensity adjustable.
The mixer blends between VCO and the noise source or an external signal. The crossfading can be voltage controlled.
The classic Moog 4-pole cascade filter. The filter characteristic is either lowpass or high pass. Cutoff and resonance are voltage controllable. Frequency range 20Hz to 20kHz.
Modulation source selectable: EG or LFO. Modulation intensity adjustable.
Internal CV source selectable between envelope (EG) or drone (ON). Range of external CV: 0-8V in EG mode or 0-5V in ON mode. Level can be adjsuted with a knob; this controls the VCA output and the headphone output.
LFO with triangle and square; waveforms can be assiged to VCA and VCF-MOD individually
Attack-Decay envelope with switchable decay.
There's a voltage controlled mixer for CVs which also has an inverted output and a buffered 1-in-2-outs multiple.
Sequencer with 32 steps and a64 memory locations. Two modes: chasing light or programming via keyboard.
Latter has a span of 13 semitones and can be transposed in a range of 8 octaves.
A MIDI/CV interface in integrated as well.

Robert Arthur Moog is probably the inventor of the monophonic subtractive synthesizer as we know it. He started building theremins in upstate New York and by the mid 1960s got in contact with a number of of artists particularly Herb Deutsch, who convinced him to add a keyboard to the new instrument, a circumstance that made the Moog synthesizer popular among musicians. We owe to Bob Moog the invention of the resonant low-pass ladder filter (which provides the signature Moog sound and was his only filed patent); as well as the ADSR envelope, the pitch and mod wheel, etc. By 1971 and in an attempt to save the company from bankruptcy, the Minimoog Model D was born as a simplified, portable, hard-wired version of the large modular systems, which became the template for many monophonic synths to come. After his death in 2002, Moog Music is an employee-owned company operating from Asheville, North Carolina.
