Company Minimoog on steroids Recreating a close emulation of the legendary Minimoog, Minimonsta is far from another hardware-to-software porting. While capable of producing sounds that remind you very much of its so far unsurpassed model, it does an incredible job of extending the possibilities to a rare level of creativity. Rick Wakeman Yes Mini All the features and sounds of the Minimoog including accurate waveforms, a painstakingly accurate resonant filter, snappy ADS envelope generators and the Mini loop-feedback function. Using just these parameters, the Minimonsta has a huge tonal range from fat to fierce and from searing to sharp sizzles. Monsta Assign an LFO - and even extra ADSR - to almost any original Mini parameter, including filter cut-off, resonance, individual oscillator volumes and each envelope parameter. Each LFO has several waveforms, sync and delay options to choose from.

It is very powerful and you can do all types of stuff with the sounds and you will have full control over how they sound. All of the sounds are really good quality and you can tell that the developers took time in developing the patches and wanted to put out a great product that we could all use for a long time. They always work great and so will the MiniMonsta. It did take some time for it to set up in my system though, a lot longer than I expected it to take. But after it finally got installed and all the patches where loaded then I started to mess around with it and no manual was needed to get started.
I have used the same preset probably plus times and make it sound different every time then eq it a little bit and get it sitting good in my mix. I love it and it works for me, I am glad that I made the purchase and got this many years ago and still use it today. The Minimonsta is an emulation of the famous Mini Moog.
That is basically a fairly simple synth. Three oscillators featuring six waveforms and the third can be used as an LFO. A white noise generator or pink. External input. A resonant low-pass filter. ADS two envelopes, one for the filter, the other for amplitude. No release, the decay that can act. And it would be if we stood by the original model. But compared to the Mini Moog , the Minimonsta received some notable improvements.
We can even, for example, put a setting on the ADSR attack ads original, which does not really make sense.. But hey, who can do more can do less. All these parameters can also be controlled by noon. Finally, a delay was added and synth benefits system "Melohman" that allows you to morph between the different presets.
Finally add the Minimonsta is "delivered" with nearly presets categorized by genre and all declined in twelve variants. It is also accompanied by a page manual, French and very well done, which it is not necessary to do the trick. CPU usage is not excessive in current use. But if one dares to choose a voice unison, then it explodes. On a new computer, but it goes on a less powerful processor can be saturated. Of course, you do not need 32 voices at all times.
In my case, this is a truly exceptional cases. Despite having already had the opportunity to touch a Mini Moog, I am not able to say if the sound of this app is really close to the original.
But I must say that this is the last of my worries. I have not acquired a substitute for Minimonsta Mini Moog at home, but because his sound, as it is, I was completely captivated. I think he excels in all types of audio, bass, leads, pads, etc.. The possibilities are extraordinarily larger than that of a simple Mini Moog. The added LFO can make sounds that move in every direction. The unison allows sounds thick and grandiose.
Strictly speaking, all that I regret is that a release has not been directly added to the ADS of origin, even if the additional XADSR can largely circumvent the problem. For me, even if the Minimonsta not reproduce perfectly the sound of the Mini Moog, it exceeds its model in many respects.
It is a very versatile synth find its place in all kinds of musical styles. I miss a lot if I had more.

Of course, you do not need 32 voices at all times. Sound Bank. The values should be as follows:. We think of it as a Mini emulation on steroids because, until the Minimonsta, numerous clones simply attempted to copy the original instrument and then add one or two features such as polyphony and another LFO, the Minimonsta takes a radically different look miniimonsta this vintage masterpiece and operates on two levels. Doing this loads the Patch for that key of the new sound this will be a variation on the sound that has been loaded into RAM, and each key in the Melohman Octave loads a different variation.
