The Realistic Concertmate MG-1 was used for a majority of the Smack Bunny Baby, Bonsai Superstar, and beginning of the Hissing Prigs era/s. However, around 1996, Brainiac ditched the Moog, instead opting for the obscure, cheaper *"Prig"*-brand synthesizer (as well as an Oberheim), which not only had an input jack (which would still allow Tim to manipulate his voice in live performances), but was sturdier. The photo source shows Tim playing the Realistic Moog, very likely around 1993, as Michelle Bodine was still playing with the band instead of John Schmersal.more
This really is a fantastic synth. It has 2 osc and 1 filter. It's pretty limited as far as waveforms go though, but it has polyphony! It came out in the 80s. I received it as a present from a beautiful girl at university called Helen. That was back in the early 90s. Today it has spent a bit of time in storage under the stairs where it turned out to be a bit damp, and it famously has this weird foam in the synth that dies and turns into goo after a while so 2 of the keys stick down. I should really open it up and see if I can clean it.
