The controller is built specifically for version 2.0 of Arturia’s Minimoog V Virtual Instrument, which was inspired from the original Minimoog.

  2. How big a chunk of that $1K is in the case? Unless the damn thing has a dozen SSM2044 chips or something, the parts shouldn’t be that much…

  3. Answer: about $550 of that money is on the case, so you can shave lots of that with DIY or some cheaper option. Another $180 on expensive MIDI solutions, you could lower this a little bit by doing your own MIDI implementation on your microcontroller of choice, or take some design from other open source projects such as MIDIbox (which has been open sourcing this kind of this for ages).

    Those rocker switches are definitely a lovely match for the originals, though.
