|Free Moog VST emulator + another extremely good moogish VSTi to download
If you are looking for a free Moog emulator in VSTi format, the Minimogue VA is a cpu friendly synth producing lead, FX and bass using the same sound architecture of the real Minimoog. It is programmed to be as expressive as possible. It is created by Voltkitchen group with Synthedit, a Modular Synthesiser for Windows XP and Vista that allows you to create your own synth and save it as a VST.
From the Minimogue's site: "The first 3 rows of knobs represent the original Minimoog. The only additions here is a button for retrig and legato. The original Minimoog is always set to legato. Also there are sliders for fine tuning that is not present on the Minimoog, but these works just like the pitch knob, only that it is more sensitive. Its just there to help you, because the Mini moog sounds best when it is almost in tune, but not 100%. Tuning plays a big part in the MM sound. Also release in the envelope generators is added. The upper section is where you create sounds.
The last row of knobs represent new features not present on the original Minimoog: midi control, oscillator sync, LFO, autopan, overdrive, chorus and a delay section that you can sync to host BPM. The LFO has 3 functions. At low level settings it is intended to simulate the small tuning and instabilities in an original MM. At high level settings it simulates the tweaking of a knob so that you can focus on the playing. The third function is to give oscillatorsync pitch variations to work with. It also syncs to host BPM.

Though not born as a Minimoog emulation, Asynth is a very good moogish synth. ASynth is a six voice virtual analog synthesizer featuring two oscillators and
three circuit modelled filters. The downloadable demo version is fully functional, it only displays a nagscreen on startup, that is removed if you decide to donate to the author.
It has very nice filters and and an easy graphic interface. Fat synth basses guaranteed!
