UVI has released UltraMini, a hybrid instrument that includes two fully independent instruments with uniquely skinned GUIs - inspired by the Minimoog D 1971 and the Minimoog Voyager XL 2011 (Limited Edition).
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.
High fidelity sample-based waveforms produced by real circuits; in real machines are designed to give the instrument a pure sound. Accurately modeled filters and effects are used on the backend to shape and control the sound, spending precious CPU cycles only where they're needed.
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 library of expertly crafted presets.
