Moog has announced the return of the truly legendary and iconic Minimoog Model D, a spectacular analog synth whose production was suspended well over three decades ago.

This particular iteration of the famous analog synth is targeted towards serious musicians, and will set you back $3,749. What's great about the product is that it continues to retain the sound engine and signal path associated with the 1970s-era Minimoog Model D. The features include a touch-sensitive keyboard, MIDI integration and mixer modifications that allow musicians and producers to exercise a high degree of control.

The device allows users to produce thick and over-driven sounds, which is ideal in genres of music that embrace loud and overpowering sounds and voices.

This analog synth hints at the continuing popularity of old-school production tools in a world of increasingly digitized music production.
