"Moog Minimoog Analog Synthesizer (1978)

The demo video shows some famous sound patches from the original Minimoog used by Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman and other guys.

The Minimoog Model D. This is the synth that started it all; it brought synthesis out of the laboratory and onto the stage, giving performing musicians access to the iconic synths sounds we know and love today. You’ve undoubtedly heard this classic three-oscillator monophonic synth, although you may not be aware of it.

Andy Whitmore started life as a top session keyboard player playing on over 50 hit records before turning his hand to music production. He went on to produce 14 top ten hits. He is a pro when it comes to synthesizers, and here explores the Minimoog as part of a brand new series.
One of the most iconic synthesizers ever, Andy’s experience with this Moog classic dates back to the mid-‘90s, and he discusses the basics in his exploration of what makes the Minimoog so great.

Minimoog Model D Reissue – 2016 - Sounds | Synth HQ DEMO & TUTORIAL

"Everyone says it, but it's true. This is the finest synthesizer ever built. As the LFO Rate knob by the pitch/mod wheels hints, this is the 2016 reissue Model D. The mother of all synths really doesn't need any introduction. You already know the sound so I didn't get too crazy with this video. By no means is this a complex synth, but like a Fender Precision bass, it does what it does extremely well. It simply has a thickness and warmth that few others can touch. R.I.P. Dr. Bob Moog.

What sets this synth apart from the vintage Minimoog is the Midi Implementation which is totally up to date & makes this a much more useable synth in the studio.
One issue with the Vintage Moog is that the midi only goes down to C1 – so to get lower notes through midi – I used to pitch bend the synth down 4 semi tones – then put a transpose on the computer & re-tune it – what a faff!!!"
