Moog has made new Minimoog circuit boards and used the original parts, in order to recreate the classic synth’s sound. But they’ve also incorporated sensible updates, including a better keyboard, an LFO and new control voltage routings.
We talked with Moog’s Nick Montoya, who gave us an overview of the new synth and showed us what it can do.
Here’s what Moog has to say about the reissue:
After more than 30 years, the Minimoog Model D returns with a pilot-production run at Moogfest 2016 in Durham, NC.
Handcrafted in the Moog Pop-Up Factory, the pilot-production units built during the festival will only be available for purchase on-site in the Moog Store by Guitar Center.
The Moog Pop-Up factory is open Thursday through Sunday from 10am-6pm at 312 Blackwell St. Power Plant Gallery – Durham, NC 27701.
The Minimoog Model D is priced at US $3499.
