The aim is to recreate, in a software version, a classic Minimoog Model D synthesizer. It is important to make the new instrument compatible with the most common formats and environments. We have made use of the theoretical principles of subtractive synthesis and the knowledge of specific programming languages applied to audio, such as CSound and Cabbage. The model chosen for its recreation has been due to its historical relevance and simplicity of use. We have managed to implement all the functions that the original model had, as well as the inclusion of other minor functions that guarantee its compatibility with current programs and equipment. The final prototype is able to realize complex sounds by combining the signals of three oscillators and adding different signals from three oscillators and adding different types of effects and modulations.
