Minimoog Model D Reissue

Postby seanolyte » Sat Jan 21, 2017 1:13 am

Anyone tried one of these yet?

Is it the real deal i.e sounds as close to the original?

If so I might have to go broke and buy one...

Had a quick noodle on one at a showroom a month or two ago.

Sounded great, looked good, felt good. I don't think you could go wrong!

I have an old '72 Model D and the reissue felt pretty spot on. Maybe the keys feel a little different on the reissue, not in a bad way, just a little lighter (which is probably a good thing)!

If you've got the cash and want one then go for it, haven't heard a single bad thing about it!

Yeah that's the only thing that seems noticeably different, the keys I mean which are from a Voyager. Which actually is a good thing as the original system sucked (I currently have a vintage Model D that was working fine last time I used it and now half the keys don't trigger properly).

Also the added mods are great, dedicated LFO, Aftertouch etc. Just great. Makes me kinda mad it's so good though cause I have an old one! haha

Sounds like you need new bushings on the keys!

There is something magical about the old ones though (probably just mental placebo)

Honourable mention to the Sub 37 if you want a myriad of features and options, only two real oscillators though so you can't get that amazing triad business you can get going on the Model D!

Nah the bushings are fine it's the buss bar that gets dirty if you don't use it enough which sadly I don't.
