Check out a lot of samples of analogue synths.
Then try to capture some essence (however small) of the real thing, simply by ear, and not any technical ideas or oscilloscopes.
I also don't initially set out to create an emulation.
I just hear a resemblance come through as I fiddle with something, then work to make it better, after I realize it sounds like a mini or oscar or guitar...etc.
Yep, all true!
Plus, once you get technical, it's easy to get carried away!
BTW... if anyone has some wave files of the real Minimoog's waveforms, please share so I can model them as well ...to compare how they sound with what I've modeled. Shockingly I didn't find any on the Internet. (Still searching though)
I don't know how true this is, but the fact is that they all sound different in some degree or another and some of the early models of Model D produced different waveforms as well.
I will also try to make good use of mcnoone's tips, so I can shape the patch for the better.
PS Not that I really want to model a Minimoog in particular... but more of objectively proving to myself and others that Zebra can do a GREAT job with emulations as well as anything else.
