Using a "THRU" box fixed the issue. I used an MBA-8 by Sema Electronics if anyone is interested; there's some on eBay.

Thanks for pointing that out =D> , wasn't aware of that. I had considered buying an MMT-8 some time ago, but never actually did.

BTW, any info about the forthcoming WWR album? April 2018 is long gone by now... 8-)
Don't forget to TURN ON THE SYNTHESIZER. Often this is the reason why you get no sound out of it. - ARP 2600 manual, 1971

Hah yeah the album is still in the works but got sidetracked by a huge local project in Hobart, Tasmania called SYNTHESTHESIA - a compilation album of Hobart underground Electronic artists. Myself and 2 other people from a local record label Cubbyhouse Records have put together the submissions of 29 tracks of local artists and are doing a CD launch of it on Jan 12th, with live performances of the artists in a whole day and night electro festival. We're getting 500 CD's commercially pressed for it.

What kind of Minimoog is this? Is it a vintage Minimoog with a MIDI retrofit, or the recent Model-D reissue with built-in MIDI?

It is the Minimoog Model D reissue with the built-in MIDI.
