The Bob Moog legacy lives on: As part of World Music Day, French music software company Arturia is giving away downloads of Minimoog-V Original music software (a recreation of a 1974 Minimoog synth, $199 value) for free starting today at 6 p.m.
The Minimoog-V Original software “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).”
Looks like the offer will last from 6 p.m. today (Wednesday, June 20) to 6 p.m. tomorrow.
When it comes to recording your own music, it is crucial that your equipment and software are of a high quality, industry standard.

From a press release:
Music software and hardware company Arturia announces the end of an agreement with Moog Music that will see its Moog Modular V and Minimoog V soft synths soon remerging as the updated and renamed Modular V and Mini-V, and is marking the occasion by giving away a one-off ‘commemorative’ edition of the Minimoog-V on World Music Day.
The free version will include all of the features of the latest 2.5 version.
On June 21 only, musicians everywhere can download Minimoog-V Original from the Arturia website (http://www.arturia.com/minimoogv-original) – for free! 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.
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?
