The Minimonsta, ImpOSCar and Oddity are my favorite go-to virtual synths – hands down. In the fast pace world of interactive music scoring and sound design for video games, you have endless creative possibilities with this killer suite of plug-ins.
The Minimonsta is an award winning, highly detailed and accurate emulation of the original instrument with heaps of attitude. We think of it as a Mini emulation on steroids because, until the Minimonsta, numerous clones simply attempted to copy the original instrument and then add one or two features such as polyphony and another LFO, the Minimonsta takes a radically different look at this vintage masterpiece and operates on two levels.
