MINIMOOG MODEL D:
I put a quick demo together of a number of sounds I quickly dialled in on my newly aquired 1976 Minimoog.
This one is fitted with the old 6 pot Oscillator board:http://www.sendspace.com/file/jsel9h
I started to play with using OSC3 as an HF modulator - I was expecting metallic clangs for sure...
I was NOT expecting this!!.... it breaks all the preconceptions for me... well beyond the range of timbres I was
expecting from a Minimoog. Quite simply the most well controlled analog FM bells I've ever managed to get out of any analog synth... let along one of the very first portable analog voltage controlled synths ever made!!http://www.sendspace.com/file/a571hj
Equally - would you expect a solo violin from a Minimoog?:http://www.sendspace.com/file/i1c09n
or timpany drums!?:http://www.sendspace.com/file/3ff7g0
Here's the Mini being subjected to increasing amounts of tube overdrive. In this case I have deliberately chosen a soft triangle wave based sound to show how it can be mangled in a way tubes do best!
Here is a heavy Xmod sound with OSC-3 tuned down -6 semis and the resulting effect brought in and out with the mod wheel for a sort of sync guitar effect (despite the fact that the mini has no sync mode).
Only basic delay has been added to this:http://www.sendspace.com/file/7idgip
Here is the same effect on a bass patch triggered via the S-Trig input by a sig gen:http://www.sendspace.com/file/ij6zz3
As you can hear, modulating the Xmod depth makes for lots of movement.You can download the whole series of Minimoog demos here:http://www.sendspace.com/file/imr8j9
The Minimoog feeding the Polymoog resonator can produce some interesting results.
I made an acoustic guitar sound this way:http://www.sendspace.com/file/fwg0x2
Here is a second guitar patch I came up with - again the Mini into the Polymoog resonator:http://www.sendspace.com/file/dqb6hd
