O Minimoog foi projetado tendo em vista o uso de sintetizadores no [[rock]] e no [[música pop|pop]]. Os grandes [[Sintetizador modular|sintetizadores modulares]] eram caros, desajeitados e delicados, o que fazia deles instrumentos inadequados para apresentação ao vivo. Assim, o Minimoog foi pensado para incluir as partes mais importantes de um sintetizador modular em um móvel compacto, sem necessidade de cabos para conectar os elementos. O instrumento, no entanto, superou muito seu objetivo original e se tornou um extremamente popular por sua sonoridade característica.

O Minimoog permanece muito utilizado até hoje, mais de quaro décadas após sua invenção, por seu design intuitivo e pela riqueza de seus sons em todos os registros.
 
== Desenho ==
Basicamente, o painel de controle do Minimoog pode ser dividido em três secções:
* Os geradores de sinal (três [[Oscilador controlado por tensão|osciladores controlados por tensãooscilador]]es e um gerador de [[ruído branco]] ou [[ruído rosa|rosa]]);
* O [[Filtro passa-faixa|filtro]];
* O [[amplificador]].
There is also a switch above the pitch and modulation wheels to engage the final decay stage as well as a switch for engaging the glide circuit.
 
The VCF is of transistor ladder type, a design patented by Moog (US 3,475,623).<ref>[http://www.till.com/articles/moog/patents.html Moog patents]</ref><ref>[http://www.google.com/patents/about?id=IYxjAAAAEBAJ&dq=3,475,623 US Patent 3475623] R.

The output of the third oscillator and/or the noise generator can also be routed to the control voltage inputs of the filter and/or oscillators. The amount of pitch or filter modulation thus realized is controlled by the modulation wheel, which is the right one of the two plastic disks located to the left of the keyboard. In this way, the third oscillator is frequently used as a [[low-frequency oscillator]] to control pitch (oscillator modulation) and/or harmonic content (filter cutoff frequency modulation).

The Minimoog can be controlled using its built-in, 44-note keyboard, which is equipped with modulation and pitch-bend wheels or by feeding in an external one-volt-per-octave pitch-control voltage and triggering the envelope generators with an inverted switch trigger (S-Trigger in Moog terminology).

and triggering the envelope generators with an inverted switch trigger (S-Trigger in Moog terminology).
 
External pitch control does not pass through the glide circuit, nor is it presented to the VCF tracking switches &mdash; the external inputs were not designed for external keyboard control. The
 
lowest note played on the keyboard determines the pitch, a condition that is referred to as low-note priority. The envelope generators do not re-trigger unless all notes are lifted before the next
 
note is played, an important characteristic which allows phrasing. The modulation and pitch-bending wheels were an innovation that many instrumentalists found to be extremely playable. The pitch-
 
bend wheel is on the left of the modulation wheel. It is normally kept in the centered position. It is not spring-loaded; the player must return it to the centered position to play in tune. There
 
is a delicate detent mechanism to help the player find the center position tactually. In sharp contrast to later synthesizers that also have pitch-bend wheels, there is no [[deadband]] near the
 
center of the wheel's travel; the wheel produces minute changes in pitch no matter how slightly it is moved in either direction. The wheel can therefore be used to introduce slight vibrato or
 
nuance, as well as accurate pitch changes. However, Moog later recommended adding a deadband mod and published this mod in their factory service notes. The detent mechanism can be adjusted
 
somewhat in its strength.

[[Keith Emerson]] was the first musician to tour with a Minimoog, in 1970, during [[Emerson, Lake & Palmer]]'s ''[[Pictures at an Exhibition]]'' shows. Many essential pitch-bending techniques were first demonstrated by him, and many keyboardists learned how to pitch-bend by following his example. He immediately adopted it as one of his main instruments.
 
[[Keyboardist]] [[Rick Wakeman]] said of the Minimoog's invention: "For the first time you could go on [stage] and give the guitarist a run for his money...a guitarist would say, 'Oh shoot, he's got a Minimoog', so they're looking for eleven on their volume control - it's the only way they can compete." Wakeman said the instrument "absolutely changed the face of music."<ref>[[Hans Fjellestad]] (2004). ''[[Moog (film)|Moog]]''</ref>

[[Kraftwerk]] co-founder [[Ralf Hutter]] used a Minimoog on the successful concept album ''[[Autobahn (album)|Autobahn]]'', and the Minimoog was used extensively on many subsequent albums, including ''[[The Man-Machine]]'' and ''[[Computer World]]''. The characteristic "electronic" yet elegant sound of the Minimoog became an important part of the Kraftwerk sound which in turn inspired an entire generation of electronic musicians.
