Music software and hardware company Arturia announces the end of an agreement with Moog Music that will see its Moog Modular V and Minimoog V soft synths soon re-emerging as the updated and renamed Modular V and Mini-V, and is marking the occasion by giving away a one-off 'commemorative' edition of the Minimoog-V on World Music Day...
On June 21, 2012, only, musicians everywhere can download Minimoog-V Original from the Arturia website — for free!
Minimoog-V Original includes all the sounds (more than 1,000 presets created by talented artists and renowned sound designers) and features (32-voice polyphony, plus much more besides) from the latest Minimoog- V update (Version 2.5), but without the additional functionality accessible behind the 'hinged' front panel — just like the original Minimoog.
It's been several years since Arturia announced the release of its Minimoog-V soft synth — modelling the distinctive tones and analogue nuances of the legendary Seventies-vintage Minimoog Model D monosynth — in an agreement with Moog Music initiated by Bob Moog himself. What better way to toast the passing of that productive partnership and end the arrangement between the two companies on a high note than with a generous give-away on World Music Day?
