With the Minimax synthesizer, an exact and complete emulation of the legendary Moog Minimoog(TM) is now available for the CreamWare DSP platform.
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 presets.
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.
