As one of the first synthesizers to be readily available to the general public, the Minimoog Model D was designed by Robert Moog and Bill Hemsath to be a more performance-friendly instrument than the large modular synths used in recording studios. In 2016, Moog Music brought back the classic synthesizer via a painstaking reproduction with a few new features for the modern musician.

We recently sat down with our friend and synth enthusiast Bubba Ayoub to talk more about the history of the MiniMoog Model D and what makes it so important to the world of music. Check out the video below to learn more and to hear a comparison between a vintage MiniMoog Model D and a brand new reproduction from Moog Music.
