The Greatest of All Time.
The most recognizable monosynth on the planet, reborn. Mini V captures the triple-oscillator magic of the instrument that put iconic lead and bass sounds into the hands of working musicians, with added features the original could only dream of.
Timeless and iconic, the sound of the Mini works in every style of music — and there’s no better way to honor it than with our True Analog Emulation®. Even the best samples simply don’t duplicate the wow factor of vintage analog circuit behavior, turning pure voltage into sound. Mini V was developed in partnership with the creators of the original, for a magical musical experience that’s as sought-after now as it was when it first landed in the ‘70s.
Mini V is simply the most sonically accurate virtual Mini in existence, period. The 3 OSC fatness, the super-rich ladder filter — it’s all there.
You’ll love the attention to detail and authenticity we put into the Mini V interface - easy to navigate, but with plenty of tweaks just a click away..
Be the Benchmark
Whether you’re shredding retro solos or punching in hip hop basslines, Mini V means you take your synthesis seriously.
Adjustable polyphony, versatile effects, and massive modulation options fit Mini V into today’s music workflows with no hassle.
Mini Size, Maximum Sound
From Classic Prog and Funk to Mainstream Pop to Hip-Hop to Electronica, Everyone Fell in Love with The Mini.
Once upon a time, if you didn’t happen to be a rock star, recording studio, or university music department, the synthesizer was a sky-high, sci-fi dream. The Mini put the essentials of wall-filling modular synths into a package everyday musicians could afford and take to the gig. The rest is literally history.
The Mini was not the first synthesizer, but it was definitely the one that got most people’s attention. The founder of the company that made it — whose name is synonymous with synths — had already seen his modular systems succeed and even cross into popular musical culture thanks to musicians like Wendy Carlos and Keith Emerson. Towards the late 1960s, though, demand for a truly portable and user-friendly way to get that soaring sound was building and sales of the large and expensive modulars were slowing.
The Original Mini Featured a No-Nonsense Layout that Yielded Instant Sonic Gratification. Mini V Starts There, Then Performs Some Just-Right New Tricks.
Its sound ranges from creamy to downright bossy, serving up leads, basses, pads, brass, strings, and special FX with gusto. Our additions give it a big boost while staying entirely within the spirit of the original.
Three oscillators cover the frequency range and waveforms of the hardware. We added hard sync, precise fine-tuning, and key tracking on oscillator 2. Best of all, they sound real.
Climb the Ladder
The girth of the famous 24dB ladder filter makes it the most emulated filter among hardware and software synths alike. It’s lovingly modeled in all its glory.
Push the Envelope
Mini envelopes are lauded for their “snap” at quick attack settings. Crisp transients, aggressive squawks, and lilting fades are all a few knob twists away.
We’re Poly Now
A polyphonic Mini is a keyboardist’s Holy Grail. It’s yours with the flip of a switch — up to 32 voices of it!
Another of our additions: Unison mode triggers multiple voices from a single note for truly gargantuan sounds.
Mix It Up
Like on the original, the mixer supports external audio input. This also duplicates the trick of running the filter output back into the mixer for overdrive FX.
