Minimojo – new Minimoog emulation built in Reaktor

March 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Minimojo is an emulation of Minimoog built in Reaktor, available for all registered product owners in the NI Reaktor User Library.

The Minimojo is not in any way a copy of MONARK. The builder did not have access to or ever used MONARK during the making of Minimojo. Instead, the old ensemble Minimood made by NI in 1999, which has then been modified by several users, has been used as the starting point. I think that the basic structure will be recognizable from that early ensemble.
As the Minimoog is the most emulated synthesizer the world probably don’t need yet another one. Minimojo should be seen as a proof of concept; how to emulate the should of vintage synthesizers using the Reaktor environment.

The technology developed for this is called Analog Legacy. Analog Legacy is the theory of modulating all functions in a synthesizer at all frequencies. The key is to find the right balance of the modulation depth for each frequency. Minimojo is the first attempt to use this theory in practice.

Inevitable Crafts shared this design for a Minimoog-style iPad MIDI controller.

It’s in the proof-of-concept stage, and the plan is to base it on inexpensive, readily available components, including an Akai LPK8, a Behringer 202 sounccard and various plugs and connectors and birch wood from Home Depot.

complete IO for the ipad

__symmetric audio IN/OUT
__midi IN/OUT
__MS20 filter, patchable IN or OUT

as this is a proof of concept, i will take the cheapest parts available

__birch instead of mahagoni at homedepot for around
__akai lpk8 instead of anything decent, so no wheels, but the only alternative would be the line6 and thats too big
__behringer 202 soundcard, unsymmetric and generally crappy and RCA …. but small and cheap
__cheap usb hub
__midimate
__female MIDI plugs and around 12 mono plugs (thats expensive ^^)
__some cables
__korg monotron for the filter

the controls left and right the ipad are mounted on dedicated panels to make it easier to expand and change layout.
