Superbooth 23: AJH Synth has come up with the nifty idea of combining a selection of its MiniMod modules with the Cre8audio Niftykeyz controller keyboard to create a self-contained synth inspired by the Minimoog.
With its walnut end cheeks, the so-called MiniMod Keyz certainly has the look of a Model D, but the truth is that it’s actually considerably more powerful.
It offers three VCOs, two shaped sine sub bass generators, a classic 24dB vintage ladder filter, 6dB and 12dB high-pass VCF, dual cascaded VCA, dual contour generators, a glide noise module, a ring modulator, tap tempo VC-LFO and a second multi-function modulation LFO. Phew.
And then there’s that 49-note synth action keyboard, which gives you CV outputs for both velocity and aftertouch. There’s also a five-mode arpeggiator, a two-mode modulation wheel, aftertouch and expression pedal smoothing and an autochord function.
And, of course, this being a Eurorack synth, you also have the option of expanding the MiniMod Keyz with additional modules.
