I don't know it offhand (maybe someone does), but it looks like a synth kit / homebrew diy to me.

Which would make finding docs impossible, but should make mods relatively easy.

Check the PCBs for vendor info. Off the top of my head this resembles a take on a Trevor Marshall design .. say the Maplin ETI 3600?

Edit... or at least of the same era... I don´t have a working list in my head of all the stuff that was published in Electronics Today International ( ETI ), but this certainly looks alarmingly familiar.

ETI was not alone of course, most decent magazines for the electronic hobbyist published instrument designs. Apart for the Trevor Marshall stuff, the Formant project in Elektor is probably best known today. A point to make is that most european magazines for electronic hobbyists published such projects and the actual number of DIY synths of various kinds out there in this era is staggering. Very often these also came as kits and it was not uncommon that the kits has more more mods, tweaks and upgrades thrown in.

BTW, there is possibly no vendor info on the top side of the PCBs. Check on the soldering side.

Great!
One way to find out more would be to check old electronics magazines from this period in your local library.

If this is a MiniMoog clone ( in the sense that it is an attempt at a 100% identical copy of the MiniMoog) it might have been caught up in some legal controversy. If it is a "inspired by" type of design it might have gotten reviews, tests, and it could have been a published project.
