The Miniverse plug-in from Cherry Audio is a painstaking virtual emulation of the granddaddy of all portable synthesizers, the legendary Minimoog Model D. Introduced in 1971, no other instrument is more associated with the word "synthesizer" than the iconic Minimoog, perhaps the best-known and loved analog synthesizer ever made. Though its circuits weren't identical to Moog's massive modular synths, it shared the thick, juicy, "fat" analog sound that remains unchallenged 50 years later. Setting the standard for future synthesizers, the Model D inspired whole new genres of music and defined the sound of artists as diverse as Kraftwerk, Herbie Hancock, Rick Wakeman, Pink Floyd, Parliament, Gary Numan and countless others. And now, with Cherry Audio Miniverse, it's your turn.

Miniverse was conceived as the ultimate tribute to the original instrument, focusing on a single principle: absolute authenticity. In association with DSP master and frequent collaborator Mark Barton (MRB), every nuance, curve and audio response was studied and measured. Even the Miniverse interface is a meticulous recreation of the Minimoog, from the maple cabinet and textured surface to the unmistakable "Cosmo" knobs and switches. No extra features were included, such as additional LFOs or effects, which might distract from the spirit and vibe of the classic Model D. Instead, Miniverse portrays the pure, raw, powerful sound and feel of the classic original. Whether you're seeking monstrous leads, funky basslines or warm atmospheric pads, Miniverse has you covered with mighty tones. And, if one classic synth voice isn't enough, it's easy to dial in two, four, eight or 16 polyphonic voices guaranteed to bring the house down. Need outstanding sounds even faster? Minverse includes a library of over 250 presets created by pro professional sound designers. Brass, keys, percussion, sound effects and even MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) presets are just a click away as well as, of course, the signature earthshaking basses and leads the Mini is renowned for. Speaking of presets, by popular demand, the ability to save custom MIDI controller mappings to individual presets or globally (or both) has been added.
