Moog Minimoog Model D

Moog Music has officially resumed production of the Minimoog Model D. It was the world's first portable synth and served as the archetype for all electronic keyboards that followed

Each Newly Built Minimoog Model D Is Lovingly Handcrafted By The Employee-owners At The Moog Factory In Asheville, Nc. This 3-oscillator, Monophonic, Analog Synthesizer Is Securely Housed In A Locally-sourced Appalachian Hard-wood Enclosure And Hand-finished Aluminum Chassis. The Circuit Boards Retain The Exact Component Placement And Through-hole Design Of A Beloved 1970's Era Minimoog Model D.

Although no changes have been made to the original sound engine or audio signal path, the minimoog model d now includes a series of popular functional modifications that expand this legendary instrument's sonic capabilities. These modifications include a premium fatar keybed with velocity and after pressure available via top panel cv jacks, a dedicated analog lfo with triangle and square waveshapes, cv outputs for pitch, gate, velocity and after pressure, basic midi integration, and a mixer overload modification, which when engaged, allows the minimoog model d to conjure thicker and far more overdriven sounds than before.

note: Due To The Complexity Of The Build Process Coupled With The Demand For Other Moog Instruments, We Are Only Able To Produce A Small Number Of Minimoog Model D Units Per Month.
