Moog Minimoog Model D

No need to present this legendary three VCOs monophonic synth. The Minimoog is considered to be the very first compact synthesizer, designed for musicians by the genius engineer Robert Moog. With its big fat sound due to its quality de-tunable VCOs and its famous transistor-ladder Low-Pass VCF, it became a reference for lead and bass sounds.

With the external input going thru the great filter of this pretty nice vintage analog monosynth, you can have some good time filtering on!
