Historically, the Minimoog is considered the very first synthesizer for musicians. Compact, affordable, simplified and based on the megalithic modular Moog synths, the Minimoog became the most popular synth of all time, and still is to this day!
Prior to the Minimoog’s release in 1970, synthesizers were custom built to order, and required a great deal of technical knowledge to be able to wire up and create a sound. The Minimoog changed all that by hard-wiring the most basic but essential of components into a compact keyboard any musician could not only play, but dial up some great sounds on. Thus, the Minimoog was the first synthesizer to show up on the shelves of music stores around the world. It features three oscillators (one of which can be used as an LFO) that could be individually tuned and offered multiple waveforms.
The Minimoog's internal wiring configuration and front panel layout has defined the general synthesizer configuration for decades. Every adjustable parameter is so clearly laid out on the front panel that the Minimoog makes a great teaching tool for anyone interested in classic subtractive synthesis. Input jacks allow you to run your own external audio through Moog’s famous 4-pole (24db/octave) low-pass filter, modulation and amplifier circuits too!
