Moog Monophonic Analog Synthesizer with 44-Note Premium Fatar Keybed

Originally released in 1970, Moog 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 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.

  • CV outputs for pitch, aftertouch, velocity and gate (aftertouch and velocity have dedicated output level attenuators)
  • Dedicated analog triangle/square wave LFO and filter envelope added as modulation sources, as well as an external modulation CV input
  • Mixer overload modification: the output of Minimoog Model D is automatically scaled and fed back to the external audio input for instantly available overdrive
  • Improved circuit board connectors for touring reliability
  • Fatar TP-9 keybed with velocity and aftertouch
  • MIDI in, out and thru
 

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 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 and MIDI integration.

There's also a mixer feedback modification that allows Minimoog Model D to overdrive and scream with the turn of a knob.

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