Moog has produced an accurate recreation of the original Minimoog Model D - the first recognizably modern synthesizer!

Whilst the company has faithfully and authentically replicated this classic synthesizer, they have added a few extra features. The latest incarnation of the Model D features TIS97, TIS93 and TIS92 transistors that are remade to the exact specs to ensure the filters and VCAs retain their original characteristics. The intrinsic sound engine and overall form factor have been maintained.

The name Moog became the most iconic brand name associated with synthesizers. When you think of synthesizers, you instantly think of Moog.

A short video of the Model D prototype has also surfaced online. The 1 minute 45 second-long video of the synth takes original archived audio from the legendary Bob Moog, who describes how synthesizers work. It is the perfect way to marry the past and present to represent the re-birth of this historic instrument. More information is expected to follow shortly.
