Moog has taken what it learned about 70s synth parts and manufacturing inreissuing the classic Moog Modulars, and is applying it to recreating the iconic Minimoog.
They are using the same components and circuit board layout of the original Model D, but have updated the design to add a new dedicated LFO, basic MIDI In/Out, a better keyboard and new control-voltage patching options.
At Moogfest 2016, we also filmed a hands-on demo with Moog synth guru Nick Montoya, who also performs as part of the synth band The Volts Per Octaves). Montoya goes into detail on the new synth’s capabilities and also shares some audio demos:
The Minimoog Model D is priced at US $3,499.
