The Minimoog returns (Sneak peek video)
Moogfest 2016 opens tomorrow, May 19, and it looks as if Moog Music will have a special surprise for us—a new version of the Minimoog Model D.
A sneak preview of Moog's new Minimoog Model D reissue. Sources tell us that it has the same circuit design and parts as the original, but with an external 110/240V power brickk. Modern touches include the ability to respond to and send MIDI notes, but no other MIDI data. There are two new switches in the Controllers section for modulation, and the LFO rate knob has been placed next to the wheels: It is a push-pull knob for the LFO waveform selection.
