There are a few interesting features of the UNT Moog Modular that's shown in the videos. It's a very early one - from 1965 I think. There's a photo of it at moogarchies.com, described as "1965 Modular" - probably taken at Moog before being sent to UNT. In this photo is has a 907 filter bank fitted, which I can't see in the UNT videos - some photos at UNT show a blank panel, and later some other modules were fitted.

The module on the right is very interesting - I've never seen one before and I know most of the obscure modules. The original May 1965 quote for this system included a 906 Impulse Generator, so maybe this is it, although there were some changes between the quote and the delivered system. There are no jacks on the module, but there is a jack at the top right of the centre console panel which might be associated with it.

The central console panel also has a row of tab switches which were mentioned in the quote, "to establish commonly-used modes of operation, to be speciefied by the purchaser before final delivery".

The original spec was for the keyboard to have the early dual envelope generator on the RH panel, but by the time it was built it had a pair of 911s.
