HEART OF A HYBRID MONSTER : 2 ANALOG SOULS
The Minimoog was made available to the public in 1971 and continued to be produced with very little change over the next 10 years. Considered the most popular synth ever by some, there’s no doubt the instrument has led a prolific life, leaving a massive wake in its path – changing perceptions and influencing synthesizer design to this day.
The Minimoog has a near-perfect balance of simplicity and sonic beauty.
We started with a beautiful 1971 Minimoog, sampling every waveform of every oscillator across every key – and we did this for multiple overdrive settings. UltraMini seeps with a thick and immediate analog sound produced with the same 3 oscillator configuration as the Minimoog.
But we didn’t stop there. In 2002 the Minimoog had a second coming in the form of the Voyager. This synth has its own wild character. Taking a 2011 Limited Edition Voyager XL, we performed the same comprehensive session, creating an identical sample footprint.
UltraMini includes two fully independent instruments with uniquely skinned GUIs, giving you the choice of vintage analog or crushing new school grit.
3-oscillator configuration, amplitude and filter key follow, unrestricted polyphony, mono retrigger, per-oscillator amplitude, stereo, color and drive control, a built in bit crusher, phaser, delay, limiter and our advanced algorithmic reverb – SparkVerb, built-in phraser and arpeggiator assignable per-oscillator, step and LFO modulations and a huge library of expertly crafted presets.
