The Minimoog is undoubtedly one of the most famous synths of all time. One of the first to bring the power of synthesis into a portable form, it kick started a synth revolution and put the Moog name on the map. 45 years later, the original model is not only expensive but fragile and often difficult to source. It’s led to a wealth of recreations in both hardware and software and in 2013 Native Instruments released their own unofficial tribute via their modular software Reaktor.
Titled Monark, it’s the focus of our second Plugin of the Week, streamed live on Facebook last Friday. In it we look at how the synth works, the sound of its oscillators and some extra tricks round back. Watch it above and make sure you subscribe for more live events and free tutorials.
