What type of synth was used in these tracks? (Captain Sky, Plush)

Hi,

I was wondering what type of synth was commonly used in 70's/80's era in some funk/disco tracks. I've got two examples below of the sound that I'm looking for (I suppose that's the same instrument):



(0:06-0:09)

and



(0:09 and on)

Will it be Minimoog Model D? I'm considering purchasing such synth and I would like to asks experts if I will be able to generate such sound on it.

Many thanks for any reply,

Best

Hi Doc,
to answer your first question, yes it is most probably a minimoog you hear. It is a nice combo, minimoog and funk .
I can’t answer your second question, I am not familiair with your skills.
But if you are really interested, you might try out the Boog (Behringer clone). (Almost?) same sound for less than €300. Or if software is ok, download a moog clone.
You might be more than happy with the funky sounds you can get with those alternatives.
The question is ‘off topic’ btw cause this is the modular forum you are in

The Minimoog is quite an investment. If you're serious about making music, and inspired by it, I think it's not a bad choice at all.
I'd try it first, also try cheaper options (not just the Behringer clone, there's also AJH eurorack modules), see if it fits your playing style, and there's a click with you and the instrument.
