HyperSynth has released a v2 update to its Miniak-editor, a Windows software editor for controlling the Akai Miniak synthesizer in your DAW.

Bïzune has introduced Miniak MIDI Suite, a pair of application for the new AKAI Miniak synthesizer.
They call it “the first ever Softmod for a musical instrument”, because Bïzune?s Miniak Suite adds control features and modulation sources not available on the hardware itself:
The Minizune parameter editor – Operating as a standalone PC application or VSTi Plugin, it provides control of the Miniak?s parameters with an attractive and inspiring interface. The MIDI Learn feature enables convenient integration and assignment of external MIDI controllers and the parameters can be automated from a VST Host.
The Groove-Mod rhythm sequencer transforms the Miniak into a full featured virtual analog drum machine. Rhythms can be programmed on the step sequencers and then recorded into the Miniak?s sequencer for standalone playback. Mute buttons and virtual sliders are provided for effortless mixing of each drum sequence. In addition to the percussion voices, four reversible modulation sequencers can be programmed for unusual morphing beats.
The Minizune Editor and Miniak Groove-Mod are available $33 USD individually or $50 USD for both programs.
