What many musicians have dreamed fro long has finally become true - Moog is reissuing the most legendary synths of them all - the Minimoog Model D, the first "modern" synth of the pop era, used by many famous artists: compact, versatile and easy to use, the original Model D set the template for all synths to come, and still remains one of the most fascinating and innovative instruments ever.
Originally released forty-six years ago, the Minimoog Model D now gives a new generation of creative musicians the opportunity to create and explore new sounds with what is arguably the most important synth ever made.
Your chance to own a piece of synthesizer history!
This limited run of Minimoog Model D synthesizers is as authentic a recreation as Moog are able to make. They will be handcrafted just as the Minimoog Model D's produced from 1970-1981. They have had an American semi-conductor company remake the TIS97, TIS93, and TIS92 transistors to exact specs so that the filters and VCAs retain their original properties and characteristics. The intrinsic sound engine and overall form factor are maintained, however a handful of new features have been added... which in fact means the new Model D is even better than the original!
2016 Model D New Features
Some of the new features of the reissued Model D include MIDI in, out and through sockets, besides CV outs for aftertouch and velocity, and for plugging into other gear. There are new switches for modulation, and a knob by the pitch and modulation wheels that can be pushed and pulled for controlling an LFO waveform.
