The holy grail of analog synths, perfectly emulated in software.

Unquestionably the most iconic synthesizer ever made, the Moog Minimoog Model D changed the face of modern music. From Kraftwerk to Parliament-Funkadelic, Yes to Dr. Dre, the Minimoog's fat, musically expressive analog synth sounds are the standard by which all other synths are judged.

Developed in partnership with Moog Music, exclusively for Universal Audio, the Moog Minimoog thoroughly captures every nuance, anomaly, and quirk of the original hardware using Universal Audio's industry‑leading expertise in circuit modeling, synthesis, and signal processing.

An Analog Synth for the People

An Analog Synth for the People

The Moog Minimoog Model D was introduced in 1970, when "synthesizer" meant a giant wall of intimidating knobs, cables, and patch bays. Bob Moog and his team designed the Minimoog as a performance instrument of unrelenting expressiveness for all musicians. Soon, the portable Minimoog was appearing on albums by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Stevie Wonder, Sun Ra, Bob Marley, and more. Before long, entire genres were being transformed, even created, by the Minimoog and its futuristic sound.

Unmatched Craftsmanship

Unmatched Craftsmanship

Together with Moog Music, Universal Audio's team of DSP engineers undertook meticulous circuit modeling and rigorous listening tests of three vintage Minimoogs, and a single "Golden Unit'' was chosen. Using custom robotics for ultra-precise knob measurements, each Minimoog module was fully emulated, faithfully capturing module-to-module coupling and impedance. The result is an awe-inspiring UAD Instrument with all the personality of Bob Moog's most famous synthesizer — with near‑zero latency.

Incredible Realism to Fuel Creativity

Incredible Realism to Fuel Creativity

Simply open the Minimoog in your DAW and prepare to be inspired with the unmistakable growl, fatness, and rich distortion of Moog's iconic ladder filters and oscillators, as well as detailed modeling of the Minimoog's pitch tracking anomalies. Even the "feedback" effect of looping the Minimoog's output to the input for varying degrees of distortion is faithfully reproduced. And by capturing the midrange punch, high-end presence, and sumptuous low end, the Minimoog UAD Instrument effortlessly blends into any mix — just like the original.

Custom Moog Mods

Custom Moog Mods

The Moog Minimoog UAD Instrument sports many of the custom mods that power users utilized on their hardware units, greatly expanding the Minimoog's palette. From switchable note priority and legato, to sample and hold, extra LFO, and more, these appointments make the Minimoog UAD Instrument a jaw-dropping, detailed emulation that raises the bar for virtual instruments.

      Excellent plugin

      Very faithful to the sound of the original. I really liked it. I recommend it!

      I've been wanting UAD's Minimoog for a while and it does not disappoint. I love pairing it with the Galaxy Tape Echo and other analog emulators for a really warm and evolving sound. A+

      Great emulation and lots of fun

      I immediately started using this on tracks. Sounds great and really emulates the feel and tone of the original. I've only messed with originals a few times, but this really captured what I had experienced in an affordable and usable format. Has lots of bass too - not weak sounding like many vst synths. Very close to analog sounding!

      Sounds great.

      Sounds great. Try the demo and see if it's worth it for your workflow.

      Using three digital MiniMoog VST`s since years . This one gets nearest to original analog.

      Not polyphonic, Cannot midi learn

      Guys... why do you have to make everything difficult. Set up a midi learn menu so that we can map controllers to it. Also, let us play with polyphony. I know I know... "IT'S A MONO SYNTH" but it's also a piece of software. Just let us choose to play it polyphonically if we want.

      More than lipstick for the frog

      Here are some of the advantages of the Mini-Moog Softsynth over the hardware version:

      Extended functionality: The softsynth has additional waveforms, modulation options, and effects that are not available on the original Minimoog. This gives you a lot more flexibility in creating sounds.
      Versatility: The softsynth can be used in a wider range of musical genres than the original Minimoog. For example, it's great for creating electronic dance music, as well as more traditional rock and pop sounds.
      Portability: The softsynth is much more portable than the hardware Minimoog, which can be heavy and cumbersome to transport.
      Affordability: The softsynth is much more affordable than the original Minimoog, which can be very expensive.
      Overall, I'm very impressed with the Mini-Moog Softsynth. It's a great way to get the classic Minimoog sound with added versatility and convenience.

      One and only

      At the moment, various manufacturers are selling Moog emulations, but nothing can beat this for the warmth and thickness of the sound that is unique to analog.

      Sounds really good! But pitch bend is so slow, or other latency problems with the pitch bend. Please fix it. thx.

      Beautiful Re-Creation!

      Very nicely crafted software. Has all the feel and tone of the MiniMoogs I remember from my past!

      Now add direct numerical input for all values as well as the nice knobs. Very critical for re-creating patches already known and increasing accuracy of adjustments and spped of doing so!

      Midi CC control

      Fantastic sounding but impossible to control with midi CC. This is 2023, how come a brand like Universal Audio does not provide such an obvious feature ?

      Best Minimoog Emulation out there

      As a user of all of the Moog emulations on the market and some real Moog hardware I am very impressed with UAD's offering. The oscillators and sounds have just that little extra depth and give it the edge over the others. Well done UAD!

      The best Moog sounding vst!

      I can’t tell the difference between this Moog and the Analog one, same goes for the Organ vst that UA has!
