Sound Collective: Minimonsta
Sound Collective members can download Minimonsta from their Novation account between 3rd June 2021 and 5th August 2021
This month’s exclusive Sound Collective community giveaway is GForce’s impressive emulation of the original Mini, for Mac and Windows. Normally sold for £99.99/$129.99, Minimonsta is free to download for Sound Collective members from 3rd June 2021 to 5th August 2021 (4pm GMT), and comes with a 25% discount code for GForce’s newly released OB-E — a unique take on the legendary 8-Voice, offering complete per-voice control. There is also a 50% discount code to redeem against any of GForce software’s individual instruments.
Modelled on the legendary Mini, Minimonsta delivers all the iconic analogue sound you’d expect from a Mini emulation, but also — as GForce describes it — Minimonsta virtual instrument is “a Mini emulation on steroids.”
Minimonsta really is a monster. Firstly, you have the Mini emulation with all the features and sounds of the original legendary mono synth, including accurate waveforms, resonant filter, and ADS envelope generators. There’s also the loop-feedback function and over 6000 factory patches (including many from Rick Wakeman).
Then there’s the Monsta. Unleash this beast and you’ll have the ability to assign an LFO to almost any original parameter including filter cutoff, resonance, individual oscillator volumes, and even each envelope parameter. In addition, each LFO has sync, delay, and several shapes.
You can also dynamically morph between 12 patches within a Meta-Patch thanks to the unique Melohman octave. This gives you additional performance and dynamic control possibilities, adding life to your performance. Extra LFOs, ADSRs, a hugely versatile dynamic MIDI control, and the Melohman octave makes Minimonsta so much more than a Mini clone.
GForce’s successful emulation of this classic analogue synthesizer has vast MIDI control possibilities, and its huge tonal range takes you from fat to fierce in no time. This powerhouse is the perfect complement to your favourite piece of recording software and expands the creative possibilities of the Mini many times over.
As well as Minimonsta, Sound Collective members can also grab a 25% discount code for GForce’s newly released OB-E — a unique take on the legendary 8-Voice, offering complete per-voice control. There is also a 50% discount code to redeem against any of GForce software’s individual instruments.
“This month we bring you an offer from our good friends at Gforce: the extremely versatile and powerful soft synth, Minimonsta,” says Sound Collective Product Manager Jonathan Campbell. “The Minimonsta almost needs no introduction. This emulation of the Mini is one of the most faithful recreations of the famous mono synth. In terms of controls, it’s pretty much one to one (with the original), and it comes with 6000 patches. For me this is its most powerful aspect: there’s an endless supply of inspirational sounds to go with any — and all — of your productions.”
