Moog Mixers...

by Chris Randall

I was browsing around the Moog Archives today, and came across these two pieces. Pictured above is the Moog 1084 mixer, which is, according to the 1971 Moog Catalog, "a signal coordinating center of moderate complexity designed to meet the requirements of modestly scaled electronic studios." Sounds like something I really, really need. Eight line inputs and two mic pres later, this four-buss mixer is obviously poised to set us up the bomb. If that one isn't enough...

...the 1200 is even more flyer, with an effects send and a classy mixer-like form-factor. This one would set the aspiring c. 1971 laptop musician back a whopping $3995, while the 1084 was only $1825. Now, I know a lot about synths, and even have a hefty dose of experience with the various Moog outboard processors, but I've never heard of these two pieces until today. Anyone here seen one of these in real life? Here's a color pic of the 1084, which seems to be altogether more common than the 1200. I found a couple hits for 1084s for sale, but literally _nothing on the Interwebs about the 1200, other than the Moog Archives page.

I had one of these a couple of years ago. It was a real dog and made from pretty cheap era parts and VERY noisy.

It looks cool as sh*t but prolly only worth anything to the serious Moog collector. I sold it to a cat in Europe.
