Gforce Minimonsta 2 Softsynth is a Rebuild
This update to their original Mini is more than enough to deserve its own number
Rumor has it that Bob Moog was originally opposed to the Minimoog, but his employees went ahead anyway. So isn’t it interesting that the Minimoog is still archetypal in 2023? (We won’t call it “iconic,” because we think outside the box and never use clichés.) There are several excellent software and hardware recreations and reissues of the Minimoog as well as individual processing components from it, and so far they’ve all had something different to offer.
Gforce’s new revision does not look like an exception at all. And we quote:
Minimonsta2 is a fresh and hugely enhanced rebuild of our much loved, multi-award winning Minimonsta software synthesizer.
