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.

TAKE A LISTEN

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.

      ilok and no midi mapping

      No matter how good this synth sounds this damn ilok dongle which takes one usb port on my mac book and lack of midi mapping is a real dealbreaker ...even for discount price. I have a nice keyboard with knobs an sliders and I still have to use the mouse? No way. NO deal!

      Pretty good synth

      I own different company version of Moog mini and this one has really good preset that sound like the hardware.

      Moog

      Been dancing around hardware moogs for a year or so and had a few plugins, but ran a trial of this and then picked up in the sale, with a discount. UA version feels leagues apart from the others I've tried, the more I've used it over the last couple of weeks I've discovered a depth to the sound and sits really well in every track I've dialled it in to. An essential tool, that's a lot of fun to play around with

      Synth heaven

      Bought in the sale, as I've been back and forth over hardware versions, and picked up to determine how much i'd use hardware - this is a terrific emulation - all th functionality, and most important, it has the weight - a terrific piece of software engineerinf

      Amazing

      Is a simple but very musical synth. Slectacular sound, and if you put fx on it........ speechless. You guys are doing great job making soft synths so i think you guys can make the voyager too(make it polyphonic because i think it was monophonic). And talking about synths, if ua make the access
      virus ti2, im gonna use only ua plugins for my work, im sure its gonna be amazing. A plus, can you guys make drums like acoustic drumkits and electronic/synth drums machine/computers.

      2 days left of demo, buy or not buy...??

      I really love the sound, in my opinion the best emulation on the market. I also love the authenticity, UAD let's this miracle of electronic invention, be what it is supposed to be. If you want a bunch of new features, why go after a Minimoog? I love that it doesn't have 5000 presets, as long as the ones you've got are great and the UAD ones are of course really great. The last thing I need is the endless scrolling through preset lists, which are totally killing creativity. But, UAD, please... why can't you give this amazing product midi learning?? You are making evertyhing else on this synth so authentic, why can't you let us users get the authentic feeling when we use it?? The Minimoog was on sale for about $50 not too long ago, now it's a bit over $100 and even though it hurts, I will have to wait for midi mapping or at least another major sale.

      Mini moog uad

      Excellent software, it takes time to try out all its potential but from what I've tried so far it seems like a real mini moog tool. Optimal

      Not worth it due to licensing issues.

      Sounds decent, but other less hassling software can create these sounds in the box. An internet connection is required to load the plugin in an operating state, which causes problems for airgapped workstations. This is a major security concern and these plugins should be avoided.

      THAT Moog

      If you are a serious producer, you have to have a Moog in your arsenal and while the real deal is more fun to mess around with physical knobs and whatnot, sound wise this is 99% there. Absolutely epic tones for lead, harmony, and bass (my personal fav). Must have plugin instrument from uad!

      Synth is stuck in demo mode even after purchasing.

      After I purchased the demo, the minimoog stayed in demo mode. I'm still seeing a buy button in the UA connect app and on the plugin itself. I reached out to UA support, but I ended up having to chat with a bot and it's been over a week and they still haven't got back to me. I'm combing boards for a solution, with no lucky. It's been a very frustrating post-purchase experience.

      I have no experience with the hardware one, but the original can't be better than this... :-) Time travel to the '70s.

      Great sound but TERRIBLE control options

      I would easily rate this 5 stars for sound quality but the fact that I can't assign control to a keyboard, makes it essentially useless. Adjusting controls during a performance is a critical aspect of playing an analog synth. UA expects us to do this with a mouse?!? Such a HUGE oversight. I'm so incredibly disspointed with this and the B3 for this reason. Does anyone at UA actually use these instruments?
