Since I cannot find a page for creamwares arp emulator I will post here. This is an absolute amazing recreation of the arp odyssey. I have the klangbox version with the remote software. This sounds much better than the software version as I have this and this blows it out the water it just sounds so real you would wear a real arp oddyssey was in the box. It also has the minimax filter built in which can be activated at the flick of a sotware switch. Superb product I will be buying the minimax trust me you do not need to buy a real odyssey this is it. minimax here i come.

I got this one brand new 2 weeks ago for 478,-Euros. This thing is realy amazing. You get a 12 voice minimoog clone which sounds almost identical to an original Minimoog, the filter, the oscilators, the envelopes, external input... everything is there modeled to perfection. If you got some original Minimoog patch charts the same settings will give you the same sounds (it's that accurate). Download a Minimoog manual fm the net and your off !!! Add some internal effects on top and have the identical Minimoog frontpanel to play with. If you don't have the money to buy the real stuff - don't hesitate - it does not get better then this !!! Creamware have gone belly up so be quick to get these while stocks last - the support is still there (now handled by the guys doing the Polaris i believe). Hook this up to a decent sequencer (eg. EMU XL-7) and tweak away until to sun comes up again. Massively addictive hence full marks.

I 'lost' my Minimoog a long tome ago and have missed it dearly, but could not justify spending big bucks for a replacement 30 year old synth. The Minimax ASB was the answer to my dilemma, and at a fraction of the cost.
The real knobs and switches ( and wooden trim ) control panel is a 95% accurate emulation of the real thing, all be it slightly smaller. The only thing missing is a keyboard, but with MIDI it doesn't really matter - you just plug it into your controller keyboard and away you go.
The user manual is all but useless, but guess what - you can get a real Minimoog manual off the net ! Even the original Moog patch sheets are good to use because the Minimax's controls behave in exactly the same way !
I use this synth in a live situation, just as a Minimoog would be used. It sound awesome, as good as the real thing.
If you are more inclined to use it in your MIDI setup in the studio, the Minimax can be Monophonic or polyphonic at the flick of a software switch, has 256 memories and built in and great FX processing ! It connects to your PC via USB and easy to use control screens give you access to all the extra features - for live playing though you just plug in and go!
This is the nearest thing to a Minimoog I have ever played.

being a minimoog emulator, the minimax asb is meant for a well defined audience: musicians who want analog sound but don't want to spend thousands dollars/euros to buy (and mantain) a true vintage or new analog. this is surely the less versatile virtual analog, only one filtertype, no multitimbral, only 2 effects, and so on. but it also happens to be the one with the best analog emulation, it sounds great even with only one oscillator and it's incredibly easy to program. if you (like me) hate to spend incredible amounts of money on units which give you four times the voices, effects and multitimbral parts than you will ever need, and are packed with tons of completely (imho) useless features with the only purpose of blowing up the price, and you just want great sound, you'll fall in love with the minimax.
