UVI has released UltraMini, a hybrid instrument that includes two fully independent instruments with uniquely skinned GUIs – inspired by the Minimoog D 1971 and the Minimoog Voyager XL 2011 (Limited Edition).
The Minimoog was made available to the public in 1971 and continued to be produced with very little change over the next 10 years. Considered the most popular synth ever by some there’s no doubt the instrument has led a prolific life, leaving a massive wake in its path – changing perceptions and influencing synthesizer design to this day.
The Minimoog has a near-perfect balance of simplicity and sonic beauty. Even without a synthesizer background you can approach it and within a very short time understand and control it. This factor surely contributed to its success and makes it a superb tool for teaching the basics of subtractive synthesis.
One of our specialties is making hybrid instruments. With a hybrid instrument we get the best of both worlds. High fidelity sample-based waveforms, produced by real circuits in real machines, give the instrument a pure sound from the start.
Then accurately modeled filters and effects are used on the backend to shape and control the sound, spending precious CPU cycles only where they’re needed.
For this approach to work you need to build an amazing library of sounds and marry them to a truly advanced DSP engine.
Two Analog Souls
“We started with a beautiful 1971 Minimoog, sampling every waveform of every oscillator across every key – and we did this for multiple overdrive settings. UltraMini seeps with a thick and immediate analog sound produced with the same 3-oscillator configuration as the Minimoog. But we didn’t stop there. In 2002 the Minimoog had a second coming in the form of the Voyager. This synth has its own wild character and we figured, what better way to make a Mini ultra than to give you two of them.”
UltraMini includes two fully independent instruments with uniquely skinned GUIs giving you the choice of vintage analog or crushing new school grit.
