Mini by name,
Massive by nature
From classic prog and funk to mainstream pop, hip-hop and electronica, everyone fell in love with the Minimoog.
The Minimoog put the essentials of wall-filling modular synths into a package everyday musicians could afford, and take to the gig. The rest is history.
While Minimoog was not the first synthesizer, it was definitely the one that got most people’s attention. Robert Moog, 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.Learn more
The original Minimoog featured a no-nonsense layout that yielded instant sonic gratification. Mini V starts there, and ends in a phenomenal sound ranging from creamy to monstrous, with extensive options for advanced sound treatment when you need it.
Zoom in on the quick-fire workflow of Mini V’s interface, from familiar controls to retrofitted modern features.
The look of Mini V has been recast, delivering an organic wood-lined feel and vintage knob aesthetics that are simply impossible to ignore
The heart of the signal chain, Mini V offers 3 oscillators that cover the frequency range and waveforms of the hardware and can be finely tuned.
Let the oscillators sing in concert or operate with a single wave using the Mixer panel. Add drive, feedback or noise for added grit and power.
