Moog Minimoog Model D Analog Synthesizer

Meet the new Minimoog Model D! Moog's update to their 1970s-era analog synthesizer adds a dedicated analog LFO, MIDI I/O, a mixer overload mod and more.

Originally released in 1970, Minimoog Model D was the world's first portable synthesizer and served as the archetype for all electronic keyboards that followed. The all-analog instrument gained acclaim for combining the colossal sound of the 1960s Moog modular synthesizers with the accessibility of pre-wired modules -- meaning that it could be played instantly and intuitively with no patch cables required. It was quickly embraced by a diverse roster of performers, with artists like Herbie Hancock, Kraftwerk, Rick Wakeman, Sun Ra, Piero Umiliani, Giorgio Moroder, Bernie Worrell, and Gary Numan all shaping unique sounds and forging new musical genres using the instrument.

More than a half-century since its invention, Minimoog Model D is back in production at the Moog factory in Asheville, North Carolina. An exceptional sonic tool and one of the most beloved and iconic synthesizers ever designed, it returns to the hands of synthesists of all kinds and serves as inspiration for the next generation of electronic musicians.

The three-oscillator, monophonic, analog synthesizer is securely housed in a locally sourced Appalachian cherry cabinet and hand-finished aluminum chassis. Sounding as vibrant and deep as ever, its legendary low-pass ladder filter, powerful oscillators, and rich saturating mixer retain the exact component placement and through-hole design of a 1970s-era Minimoog Model D.

While no changes have been made to the original sound engine or audio signal path, the read more 2022 Minimoog Model D includes a series of popular functional modifications that expand this legendary instrument's sonic capabilities. These modifications include a dedicated analog LFO with triangle and square waveshapes, a premium Fatar keybed with velocity and after pressure available via top panel CV jacks with onboard trimpots, MIDI integration, and a mixer feedback modification which allows the Minimoog Model D to overdrive and scream with the turn of a knob. And, for the first time in its history, the Minimoog Model D now features a spring-loaded pitch wheel with center deadband, allowing for improved playability and wild performance flourishes.

This is the greatest sounding analog synth reissue ever as far as I am concerned. In my comparisons it actually sounds better than the original! It's been painstakingly manufactured down to the materials that the original used in the circuit boards. Leave it to Moog to reissue this beast in all it's original glory. This thing sounds unbelievably good. All the depth and richness of the original Model D are there. This Moog has three oscillators: and they are all tremendous. All the punch of the original is there too. You can get huge drums with this thing, filthy leads, but the strength of the Model D lies in the bass. The square wave is outrageous. The triangle is unbelievably smooth. Add the glide and you have ths perfect sounding bass. The external input volume is addictive. Just when you thought things couldn't get bigger! The downside of the Model D is the limited modulation. You've got to invest in a cp-251 CV module or some of the other Moogerfoogers to add to the modulation.
