Arturia say they have a lot to be thankful for. On the 22nd December, they are giving the community of music makers a gift to thanks us all for our support. And gather a load more likes and follows in the process. But, hey, a little bit of hype won’t hurt you.
It’s a MiniFilter V!
Arturia first collaborated with Bob Moog in 2003 and they have some of the best Moog emulations in their portfolio of software synthesizers. The MiniFilter V has been made with the same care and attention Arturia put into re-creating the Mini Moog and Moog Modular.
The low pass filter takes centre stage with cutoff, emphasis, dry/wet, drive and level controls. But you’ll notice that there’s a lot more going on around the sides and bottom. On the left is an LFO that can be used to modulate the cutoff, emphasis and sequencer cutoff. There’s five waveforms to choose from and control over rate and phase. On the right is an envelope follower to shape the filter over time.
At the bottom is a step sequencer. You can run up to 8 steps assigning each a value to modify cutoff, emphasis or LFO rate. It’s a great way to create movement and dynamics.
It’s free, it’s available now until Christmas day.
