Moog Minimoog Model D Analogue Synthesizer

A Timeless Recreation of the Most Important Synthesizer in History

Originally released in 1970, Minimoog Model D was the world’s first portable synthesizer. In fact, it 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. Now it was easy to play instantly and intuitively with no patch cables required.

It was quickly embraced by a diverse roster of artists like Herbie Hancock, Kraftwerk, Rick Wakeman, and Sun Ra. Also, artists Piero Umiliani, Giorgio Moroder, Bernie Worrell, and Gary Numan all shaped unique sounds using the instrument. 

Back In Production

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

Moog MiniMoog Model D – The Build

The three-oscillator, monophonic, analog synthesizer is securely housed in a locally sourced Appalachian cherry cabinet and hand-finished aluminium 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.

New Modifications

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.

Additionally, for the first time in its history, the Minimoog Model D now features a spring-loaded pitch wheel with centre deadband, allowing for improved playability and wild performance flourishes.

Hand-Built to Last a Lifetime

All components capture the indescribable feeling of the original Minimoog Model D. Specifically, each unit that travels through Moog’s production floor sees identical component placement. Also, they have identical through-hole design of the beloved 1970s Minimoog Model D. All in a hand-finished aluminium chassis, secured to a handcrafted Appalachian hardwood cabinet.
