A faithful recreation of the Minimoog Model D, in Eurorack form. Dave Gale patches up the AJH Synth Mini Mod system and reports back his findings…

Choice Rated 9 out of 10 MusicTech

Prior to developing the Mini Mod, Allan J Hall worked as a service engineer, repairing and modifying numerous analogue keyboards, including Moogs. Combining this knowledge with his experience in product design, he began an 18-month journey to develop a Eurorack system that would recreate the Minimoog Model D. Now, his initials adorn the front panelling of this set of modules.

The design of these modules harks back to the Mk 1 Model D, which is thought by many to be the most desirable of the Minimoogs. However, placing a Model D in Eurorack form is not without its challenges, not only in technical requirements but also in form factor, which is why you will find a module for each component of the original synth.
