On June 21 only, musicians everywhere can download Minimoog-V Original from the Arturia website for free. Arturia tells us that Minimoog-V Original includes all the sounds (more than 1,000 presets created by talented artists and renowned sound designers) and features (32-voice polyphony, plus much more besides) from the latest Minimoog- V update (Version 2.5), but without the additional functionality accessible behind the 'hinged' front panel -- just like the original Minimoog.
An Arturia spokesperson had this to say... "Minimoog by name. Minimoog by nature. It's been several successful years since Arturia announced the release of its much-admired Minimoog-V soft synth, meticulously modelling the distinctive tones and analogue nuances of the legendary Seventies-vintage Minimoog Model D monosynth, in an agreement with Moog Music initiated by Bob Moog himself. Moog changed the musical world with the Minimoog and Arturia helped change the music software world with the Minimoog-V, so what better way to toast the passing of that productive partnership and end the arrangement between the two companies on a high note than with a generous giveaway on World Music Day?"

I've got the Minimonsta and the Samplemoog. Do I need another virtual Moog? Too bloody right! :-)

Very cool! - also, an excellent way to PO your regular customers :-) Although I fear that Arturia might have sold less than 10 copies of minimoog v over the last year, or they wouldn't be giving it away for free... And I was wondering: what agreement? and why does it end? is another company producing an even better Moog-VST?
