As part of its Bob Moog Appreciation Month, Cherry Audio has introduced Minimode, a software emulation of the classic Minimoog hardware synth.
But, unlike the original, Minimode is polyphonic, supports presets and is even MPE compatible.
For the month of May, Cherry Audio will be donating a portion of profits from Minimode to The Bob Moog Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the legacy of Bob Moog and his work. In addition, Cherry Audio is working with to raise funds for the Foundation in May with raffles and more.
Here’s what they have to say about Minimode:
“Minimode is a painstaking virtual emulation of the granddaddy of all portable synthesizers, the legendary Minimoog Model D.
Whether you’re seeking monstrous leads, funky basslines, or warm atmospheric pads, Minimode has you covered. In fact, the resulting tones are so mighty that we could not resist adding one particular enhancement. If one classic synth voice isn’t enough, we’ve made it easy to dial in two, four, eight, or sixteen polyphonic voices guaranteed to bring the house down.
Need outstanding sounds even faster? Minimode includes a library of over 250 presets created by professional sound designers. Brass, keys, percussion, sound effects, and even MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) presets and, of course, the signature earthshaking basses and leads the Mini is renowned for are just a click away.”

Minimode synthesizer is available now, for Mac & Windows, with an intro price of $39 (normally $59).
