miniTera Offers Streamlined Synth Programming


VirSyn has introduced miniTERA, The Sound Machine.

miniTERA offers a radically simplified approach to sound design. Every preset in miniTERA has a built in “Sound designer” which presents you a set of up to eight meta parameters for convenient access to the most important aspects of the sound.

Sound design with miniTERA is a simple process:

  • Select a base sound to start from one of the 500 meta presets.
  • Optionally use the “slot machine”, which provides a random preset with every other click.
  • Change the sound characteristic with the eight meta parameters to suit your taste. You can use this “8 dimensional sound morphing” also for extremely expressive sound movements too.
  • Adapt the FX settings to fit the sound into your music.


  • Multi synthesis engine compatible to TERA 3 presets.
  • Unique 8D meta sound parameter
  • “Slot machine” for usable random generated sounds
