Here ‘noddyspuncture’ is using the Sample and Hold on mainly the Filter, but the Oscillators do play a part as well… set to various intervals – unison and also a 3rd and a 5th apart.

During a recent visit to the Moog Factory, Professor Herb Deutsch, synth pioneer and collaborator of Bob Moog, gave an impromptu discussion on the evolution of the Minimoog.
Background video description:
Using the QMVS-48 S-Trig cable from Synthesizers.com for the Gate ( with a Mono 1/4 to mono 1/8 adapter since the minibrute uses minijacks) and a ad infinitum cable for the pitch to control a 1976 MiniMoog. Works pretty well and sequences well from Ableton.
Being able to use hardware with a DAW opens things up.
also the sequence at the end is a NIN bassline from SIN. I did not adjust for for latency.
Any comments or something i missed or are totally ignorant about please let me know
Moog Engineer Rick Shaich discusses the Ladder Filter, the first Voltage Controlled Filter, which is the heart and soul of the Moog modular synthesizers of the 60s, the Legendary Minimoog of the 70’s, and is still the same filter topology used in all Moog Synthesizers to this day. The Ladder Filter creates the massive, thick sound for which Moog instruments are renowned.
The Minimoog is probably the most famous hardware synthesizer of all time—and likely the most emulated in the world of software. So does the world really need another Minimoog emulation? Native Instruments thinks so: Their new REAKTOR-based synth, MONARK, is based on years of research—but how does it sound?

The Minimoog was designed in response to the use of synthesizers in rock and pop music. Large modular synthesizers were expensive, cumbersome, and delicate, and not ideal for live performance; the Minimoog was designed to include the most important parts of a modular synthesizer in a compact package, without the need for patch cords. It later surpassed this original purpose, however, and became a distinctive and popular instrument in its own right. It remains in demand today, nearly four decades after its introduction, for its intuitive design and powerful bass and lead sounds.
The Minimoog is monophonic (only one note can be played at a time) and its three-oscillator design gave it its famous fat sound. Four prototypes were made over the years before a final design was decided upon to release as a commercial product. The Minimoog Model D adapted some of the circuitry (such as the filter section) from earlier modular instruments, but designed other circuitry (such as the oscillators and contour generators) from scratch. To produce a sound, the musician would first choose a sound shape to be generated from the VCO(s) and/or the type of Noise (White or Pink).
As announced yesterday, Arturia is rolling out an iPad version of its Minimoog-emulating Mini V softsynth called iMini.
The Mini V, released back in 2003, was the French music tech company’s first software synth. So it’s fitting that a version of it represents Arturia’s first foray into the app world, a sector that seems to be growing by leaps and bounds of late. Like the Mini V, iMini has three oscillators and a 24dB-per-octave filter based modeled on those found on the Moog classic, plus analog-style chorus and delay effects. The synth also does things the original couldn’t, like play polyphonically, and it features a number of presets to help you get started on creating sounds.
A performance page in the app, geared toward touchscreen play, features a latch mode and two assignable XY pads. iMini easily syncs with other iPad apps, and it’s compatible with the Retronyms Tabletop modular environment, so you can pair the iMini with a number of other effects or make music with multiple copies of the synth. You can grab a copy of the synth as of today through the App Store, and part of the proceeds of your purchase help benefit the Bob Moog Foundation.

I don’t know if I can… Ok, I will do it… Sorry… Amongst all the car manufacturers, I was sure that BMW would be the first to bring one of it’s cars to our iDevice… So, the day has arrived! Let’s launch the App! … … Oups, it is not a car, it is a Moog, a mini Moog! Top! (And sorry again… I promise, I will be serious from now on…). So, let’s play a sound… Wahoo!!! So fat!!! I love it!!! The main screen is exactly the same as a real mini Moog… Another window allows you to control parameters with 2 Pads (X / Y), an Arpeggiator too and a third window the Fx (Chorus & Analog Delay). That’s all… I think that some of you think that I’m kidding… No, I’m not kidding. That’s all! If you want more, download Tabletop (it’s Free, with a lot of Apps within the purchase that you don’t need to buy. Note also that Tabletop gets better and better, so if you don’t know this App, don’t hesitate to try it… I will update its Post as soon as possible…). So, iMini in Tabletop allows you to do everything..(almost!)… First, to record an automation or your performances: you will be able to share them on SoundCloud or via the Sonoma Audio Copy feature. But you will be also able to create your own Arpeggiator or Sequence, to add FX, Filters, to Glitch your sound, and much more… In fact, I realised today that Retronyms has created its AudioBus version for iOS (iMPC is also available in Tabletop…). So, my rating… A Killer App! (The sound quality is… So fat!). I understand that some of you will not really appreciate having to use Tabletop for the extra features… I use so many Apps everyday, even for my personal projects, that today it is no longer a problem for me, on the contrary, I love to be able to jump from one App to another… But I can understand those who don’t…
