I'm assuming you have an amp, right? So now you need to turn knobs and play with switches until you get a sound. Make sure your amp is turned on first, though. :wink:

No...you don't need anything else, if everything is in perfect working order. What are you playing with, and what are your settings?

No, all that should work fine on its own. There is a learning curve, though, so just practice messing with the knobs, and eventually you'll be sounding like Rick Wakeman. Once you figure out how to get sounds out of your gear, you can practice hooking stuff together via CV. 8)

Welcome to the forum and major props on the collection there!


LOL!

Man this "No sound" problem plagued my micro for years.

Try turning everything counter clockwise. THen turn the filter controls past 12:00, volume past 12:00, bypass switch off.

Make sure all the switches are all the way to the left. THis shoudl get you a sound.

You should be able to find manuals here if you scrape the surface a bit.

Oh,
If you get any of the current Foogers like the Ringmod or Freqbox, in order to accurately control them via voltages, youll need the attenuator on the Cp251 in order for them to properly scale.

I think I need to play the devil’s advocate here. If you’ve never used and don’t know how to use a synth why would you go out and buy a whole bunch of them? Why would you buy all the same brand and a whole bunch of basic models? Assuming you paid going rates and you’re obviously excited about the moog brand, why not just buy a mini? I think in your current state you are a broken synth sellers wet dream.
