It gave users the ability to design their own sounds, translating imagination into reality.

Bernie Worrell used the Minimoog Model D to establish Parliament Funkadelic’s futuristic funk sound.

Gary Numan replaced his live band’s guitars with Minimoog Model Ds, creating the prototype for industrial music. The classic sound of the Minimoog Model D can be heard on Bob Marley’s Catch A Fire, Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Dr. Dre’s The Chronic; Detailed in the mini-doc series “A Brief History Of The Minimoog”.
