Minimonsta2 – Boldly going where no mini has gone before
When GForce Software first introduced the Minimonsta, both fans and critics praised it highly for offering an incredibly faithful acoustic reproduction of the classic Model D®. However, it went far further, adding a variety of new characteristics to the original design’s simplicity to push the incredibly recognizable tones into uncharted sonic territory. The essential architecture of Minimonsta2 is the same as that of its predecessor, but it is enhanced in ways that make it a distinctively deep and musical instrument and set it apart from other Minis.
A fully resizable user interface, an enhanced audio engine, a powerful preset browser, over 300 added presets, a reverb effect, a vintage control for adding subtle analog artifacts, four programmable macros, selectable 4-stage envelopes, an alternative ladder filter that preserves bass, PWM for OSC1, and many other features are included in Minimonsta2. With the help of these strong features, Minimonsta2 offers a true experience that is tailored for modern setups.
True to the original Model D®, the heart of Minimonsta2 provides the full original feature set with precise waveforms, a beautifully accurate resonant filter, snappy ADS envelope generators, and the wonderful Mini loop-feedback function. Using just these classic parameters, Minimonsta2 has a huge tonal palette that ranges from fat to fierce, and searing to sizzling. However, there’s so much more here, as a plethora of additions turns a beautifully realized Mini into a truly unique Monsta.
Using GForce’s unique X-Modifier technology, the scope of sound modulation possibilities is immense. An intuitive X-LFO and X-ADSR section provides you with the ability to create extensive modulations of almost every parameter, allowing you to create hugely complex, yet musical, sounds. So, while the tone and character at the heart of the synth remain authentic to the original, the additional features turn it into a true sonic Monsta with no equivalent.
Inspiration At The Speed Of Sound
Minimonsta2 features a highly flexible preset browser, giving you the power to organize your sounds in a way that suits your workflow. With extensive tagging, sorting, and search possibilities, it’s quick and easy to find the presets you want. Talking of presets, GForce has got them by the bucketload. Firstly, they’ve included more than 300+ additional production-ready presets. You can also access 500 legacy presets, which have all been categorized and tagged for easy navigation. With a total of over 800 presets, inspiration is just moments away.
