MINIMOOG MODEL D
The most important synth in musical history? Released in 1970, this quite complicated looking beast actually distilled the enormous, hulking modular synths into a ‘compact’ form: the first portable synth. Hence, this model looks positively simple in comparison. The list of artists who have used this classic is, well, too long but includes everyone from 808 State to Steve Winwood with greetings from the likes of Pink Floyd, Sun Ra, Depeche Mode, The Orb and Nine Inch Nails.
