Arturia Mini V3 - Electronic Delivery
In partnership with Bob Moog Arturia has recreated the legendary interface of his early 70s synth that was and is loved by generations of musicians. What truly makes this synth the Legend of Legends is its sound, and so great care was taken to model the subtleties of its internal characteristics as well. The Arturia Mini V has kept all of the original characteristics of its award-winning previous versions. Mini V version 3 updates the filter design to make it even more accurate than ever. Powerful and rich bass, faithfully reproduced ‘free-running’ waveforms thanks to new advances in our long proven TAE® technology.
A little bit of history...
This is arguably the most famous synthesizer in the world. Designed by Bob Moog, it knew unparalleled success during the 1970s. Artists like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Keith Emerson, Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze and Rick Wakeman used this synth, notably for its unique sound and very warm quality, which is excellent for bass and lead sounds.
The model of the Mini V knew an unparalleled success during the 1970’s. Artists and bands like Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Keith Emerson, Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, and Rick Wakeman used the synthesizer, notably for the typical sound and its very warm quality, which is excellent for basses and lead sounds.
The very first prototype of this synth was called Model A. Three other versions, B, C and D, followed. This last model is the final and most common incarnation of this synthesizer and the only one that was put into production in large numbers. The choice of wood rather than plastic for the cabinet prevailed from the beginning, simply because Robert Moog preferred to follow the advice of his musician friends rather than the drawings coming from his industrial engineers.
The Model D was first introduced at the NAMM convention in June 1971. It was Dr. Moog’s first exposure to the musical instrument industry - and the industry's first exposure to synthesizers. The reception was rather cold as, according to Bob Moog himself, “Most dealers didn't know what to make of a musical instrument with words like Oscillator Bank and Filter printed on the front panel.”
A faithful reproduction
The original synth had particular characteristics for which it is loved by musicians even to this day. Arturia Mini V brings back the sound and features of this beloved synth in a virtual instrument. Arturia decided to recreate the legendary interface of the original because of its "vibe", a look and layout known and loved by generations of musicians.
Making perfection better
While the characteristics of the sound were carefully modeled, Arturia also added some very imaginative options throughout the synth engine. To use the modulation matrix as an example, the Vocal Filter X and Y axes are available as independent destinations. There are two sources based on the Sample & Hold output, and you can even use an audio track from your DAW as a source. Another example: you can use the voice number itself as a discrete source when in polyphonic mode, which can be a very interesting way to control a parameter.
