New High-End Synthesizer for the SCOPE Fusion Platform:
Minimax, the first complete emulation of the Minimoog(TM)
With the Minimax synthesizer, an exact and complete emulation of the
legendary Moog Minimoog(TM) is now available for the CreamWare DSP
Minimax faithfully simulates all of the properties of the famous original:
the powerful sound of the oscillators and the unique filters, the fast
envelopes and the characteristic saturation of the mixer section, and even
features like filter FM and internal feedback. Even the positions and the
behavior of the controls agree with those of the original, so that you can
set up Minimoog(TM) sound sheets on the Minimax and finally store them as
The accurate 1:1 modeling is made possible by newly-developed algorithms
which are completely free of aliasing, and by the high-precision 'Circuit
Modeling' technique, in which all important sound-influencing elements in
the original circuit are painstakingly modeled.
Michael Ruf, head of the software development group at CreamWare: "Although
the goal of the development of Minimax was to create an absolutely faithful
reproduction, we couldn't resist adding a few useful enhancements. Presets
can be saved, parameters can be controlled via MIDI and there's also an
effects section. On top of all that, we made the Minimax polyphonic - a
dream come true for countless Minimoog(TM) owners."
Minimax comes with more than 400 sounds which represent the broad sonic
spectrum of the synthesizer and which cover many different music styles.
Also included is a Signature-Soundset by Dr. Walker, the worldwide renown
figurehead of German Electro Music.
Minimax is now available from the CreamWare website and at CreamWare
dealers worldwide at a list price of 249 Euro. A free demo version can be
downloaded in the Online Shop at www.creamware.com. The plug-in runs on the
CreamWare DSP systems Luna, PowerSampler, Pulsar, Pulsar XTC and SCOPE /SP.
