The Roberson Audio Synthesizers interpretation of the MiniMoog Model D synthesizer.

From the ReadMe file:
“This synth is meant to be a model of the Minimoog Model D synthesizer, and a lot of time was invested to get it the way it sounds, including oscillator and filter character as well as modulation struction and response.

A few notes to keep in mind before you get to playing with it:
-The synth was built with 48khz sample rate in mind, so it may not sound the same in other sample rates (generally though, higher will not have negative effects)

-Even though a mod wheel is not present in the graphical portion of the synth, using the mod wheel on your keyboard still has the same effect as the real synth

-There is a switch on the synth for an external input. In a real Minimoog, this could receive any audio input, but for this plug-in it has been hardwired as a feedback loop from the audio output of the synth. Be careful pushing the volume of it too high!

-The synth is completely monophonic, with priority given to last note played. Realism has been sacrificed for playability, but I believe it is a good trade-off in this instance.

-Update Version 1.2 *IMPORTANT*

-Made a few modifications, basic playability is largely unchanged. Most mods came in the form of filter modifications, it is BIG sounding now. Also, can resonate itself into oblivion, which itself can be dependent on what sample rate you are using, so BE CAREFUL. You’ve been warned. Some patches from prior versions may then have problems or may cause unwanted side-effects, so load them with caution.

Any updates will be reflected in this document with the corresponding update packs. If you have any questions or comments about the synth, you may refer them to, or contact me on KVR Audio under the screen name “Chris Roberson”.

Artwork for the instrument was provided by Modeler of KVR Audio forums. Truly brilliant work if I do say so myself.

I hope you enjoy using the synth, and look forward to hearing what you have to say about it.
