A good thing made better
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 Sonic Expansion
But we’re not resting on our laurels.
While the original product set the sound of the 70's we have taken it to new realms. We have added an advanced modulator that allows you to draw a shape and control many parameters creating a movement and interest. A vocal filter expands sonic possibilities with a formant-analysis based effect: now you can make that synth talk! A modulation matrix has been added dramatically improving on the original design and doing away with its limitations.
Esthetically and sonically it is really good. I have a Voyager (sadly no Model D), and the Mini VÕs sound really surprised me. The soft clipping switch is great; the fact that you can feed the headphone lineout into the ÒexternalÓ input to create the saturating effect that you can get from the real machine. The fact that it is polyphonic is also really cool. What I like most about this plugin is the way it is configured; it stays very true to the original, but also provides tasteful new tools which can be very useful indeed.Strip Steve

Very useable synths that integrate perfectly into my studio setup. Now I have some very good, instantly accessible sounds right at my fingertips. (About the Mini V)Jake Wherry

From the first time I opened up the Mini V I was blown away by the sound quality. These three soft synths are what I use to start and finish every song that I have written since. I have a collection of vintage synths but the reliability and the infinite ways you can precisely manipulate and control all the parameters in Arturia's products have left them gathering dust.Ian Pai

The Arturia Mini V so accurately re-creates the original. Perfected analog synthesis with the ease of being able to save your sounds as a preset. A must have in the world of synthesis.Alexander Adhami
