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 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, and available exclusively for LUNA Recording System and Apollo interfaces, the Moog Minimoog LUNA Instrument 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.

Now You Can:

Record classic Minimoog textures in real time with near-zero latency with LUNA Recording System

Get ultra-realistic and responsive Minimoog sounds with exacting module‑to‑module interactions

Create otherworldly sounds with Moog’s signature self-oscillation and extreme resonance

Take advantage of custom mods including switchable note priority, legato, extra LFO, and more

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 LUNA 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 inside LUNA Recording System 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 LUNA Instrument effortlessly blends into any mix — just like the original.

Custom Moog Mods

Custom Moog Mods

The Moog Minimoog LUNA 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 LUNA Instrument a jaw-dropping, detailed emulation that raises the bar for virtual instruments!

Only for Luna? :-(

Please make it available for other DAW's and I'll definitely buy it!

Amazing sound

This is by far the best minimoog plugin I used. Other plugins sound thin or artifical in comparison. I like the Arturia and Native instruments versions, but this is different.

buen sonido pero solo disponible con luna

compraría este plugin si estuviera disponible en uad-2, es un error vincularlo a luna... no es un daw util.

Mini MoogD-plug for Luna-phishing?

Isn't Luna a good enough DAW to stand for its own?
So You think you can tempt us with (another) Mini Moog D plugin to sell Luna?
As an quite happy Nuendo 10 owner I'm not tempted to leave it for Luna cause of another Mini Moog D plug at an ridicolous prise. Synapse The Legend and Arturia Mini V7 also sounds similar to the real deal (compared with my two MMD's from 1973) as does Behringer Mod.D for ca. the same price as Your plug in. (not to mention Moog Musics own Mini Moog D app) So my advise is to give it UAD2/VSTi compatibility and turn down the price to something closer to Arturias Mini V7 and give Your well sounding Mini Moog D plug the justice it deserves!

Seems overpriced

Lovely plugin, and I would definitely buy it, if it is more affordable. However, the price of this product forces me to look at Arturia;s version of Minimoog plugin.

More Windows Format brush off.

I would easily buy this if it was available on Windows format and not tied to a DAW people don't really want.
UAD, stop treating your Windows customers like crap.

Luna exclusivity kills it

Sounds lovely, but it doesn't work outside of Luna and that makes it virtually useless. Moog's own Minimoog iPad app is more flexible and easy to integrate with a DAW than this, and it sounds quite good as well.

Sound fantastic!

The sound of this plugin is fantastic!... But Luna is a crap.

Great Moog Emulation but--

Compared to other Moog emulations, which I have used, this one is a step above in sound. For the price, however, I feel this synth should've been designed for use with other DAWs. Other Synth emulations provide this luxury and much more, at a reasonable price. LUNA is a great system, no doubt and getting better. It's a go to for mixing and getting that polished sound. But it would sure be nice if this Minimoog emulation were interchangeable with DAWs that one has gotten accustomed to when recording.

The price is an insult

Compared to equally good plugins already out there, the price of this plugin is an insult to customers. Arturia has been in the game longer with great plugins. And yet their stuff is significantly cheaper. Now add the fact that this only works in Luna and this thing loses value significantly. I wish UAD would have some respect for its customers.

Only for Luna...

No Time to Waist

I maybe wrong but at least for me after trying the demo, sorry but that thing needs delay, reverb and an arpeggiator so it can start to sound good. I personally have not time to fiddle with this. But if you are a synth freak yes that is your new toy that I'm sure sounds like the original one.

Sounds like the Real Deal

An amazing Model D !

Close, but no cigar

Sounds close to Synapse Audio's The Legend synth, which is another Moog clone and only $99. Would definitely use this plugin but the fact that it's attached to Luna only to encourage people to work in Luna is silly.

Ne fonctionne qu'avec Luna, dommage !

Quel dommage !
Pourquoi ?
Y a ura t il une version compatible avec d'autres DAW ?

Nothing else comes close

Nothing else I've tried comes close to the warmth, grit and analog feel of the UA Minimoog. The sound palette, coupled with the responsive interactive controls, are so inspiring that I think my guitars are starting to feel neglected!

crisp, smooth & juicy

Tried it for a baseline and was very satisfyed with its sound. Midi remote control allows twiddle mayham like with a real one. Nice!

sound is so so

Nothing special compared to all the other plugins I own. too few presets. too expensive.
