Softube Model 72 Synthesizer System Expands On Classic Minimoog Design

Softube has introduced Model 72 Synthesizer System, a software synth inspired by the classic Moog Minimoog.

Softube has used component-modeling to recreate the sound ‘down to the smallest details with 1972 hardware in pristine condition with all the quirks and non-linearities intact, hence the name Model 72.’

The system includes a model of the original instrument, an FX version, an Amp Room module, and seven Modular modules.

Features:

  • An entire system based on a classic analog monophonic synth from the early 1970s, with the emphasis on sound quality
  • Era correct: component-modeled, with all the quirks and non-linearities intact
  • Actual use cases and tricks of the hardware correctly replicated in the software
  • Four versions included: Model 72 Instrument, Model 72 FX, Model 72 module for Softube Amp Room, and seven Model 72 modules for Softube Modular. Learn more about Softube Amp Room and Softube Modular
  • Create combinations in Modular never possible before in real life or in the world of software
  • Software-exclusive features added: doubler, stereo spread effect, and expanded controls

Pricing and Availability:

Model 72 Synthesizer System is available now with an intro price of $99 USD (normally $159).

    1. It astounds me that people are so dismissive of software simulations these days. Yeah, we know your hardware is rare and coveted, but that doesn’t mean you make better music with it.

      Thanks to increased processor power and improved algorithms, many emulations are extremely good. Most of us use software reverbs and tape saturation plug-ins while making music, because the equivalent in hardware would cost an absolute fortune and sound basically the same. It’s all about the end result, not a gear collecting fetish.

      1. for me the slight frustration is that they seem to have knocked up a 3d image of this VST. So it catches the eye of someone who is looking for a hardware synth, only to find it is a VST. Which is fine if you are looking for a VST that emulates something old fashioned, but disappointing if you were in the market for a new hardware synth.

        No idea whether this is what “blah” meant.

        1. Agreed. I always feel like the old bait and switch. I would love a real 120VAC vacuum tube synth like that. Especially with those knob.s lol.

  1. Maybe I’m just getting old, but after the Minimoog V, G-Force Minimonsta, NI Monark, Synapse “The Legend”, the Behringer D, Behringer Poly D, an actual hardware re-issue of the Model D by Moog themselves and nd a plethora of freeware Minimoog plugins….. I think we have more than enough Minimoog in our lives, don’t we? Shame, because if this came out around the time of the Monark or Legend, at least it could compete, but damn…. who out there STILL wants more Minimoog!?

  2. Hey, people still have children and some of them grow up to want Moogs. I’ve owned a Mini and 2 Multis, so I get the fascination & loyalty Moogs command. I’ve heard several soft-Moogs get the base sound right. IMO, half of it is having speakers that will carry it all! A bass bin helps like hell, of course. This is a well-designed version that oughta satisfy newbies or older players who want to fill that Moog spot. I also like the rockin’ dirty panel look!

  3. actually its a great recreation very gritty and huge, but its when I put it in modular that the potential really comes to light, mixing up the tone generator with a bulcha 259 through the korgsmatron ect ect, modular is becoming very powerful.
