"Real Moog for 10X less"
The best Minimoog emulation i have ever heard to this day.

Sound
The new and update version of this beast is hands down amazing. The sound is nothing short of the classic moog sound we all love. I was going to buy the gforce minimonsta and after a week on demo, i was not so impressed with the emualtion. It was not far off from the moog sound but not as analog like as the Minimoog V. I really like how the sound of the Arturia minimoog has a living character, it has a sound that vibrates and moves. This reminds me of real analog sound, not the plastic we listen to on many soft synths. The minimoog v also responds very well to controls and syncs perfect with playback on the daw, unlike the minimonsta, which constantly caused audio drop outs. Overall i think the minimoog v sounds as good as it gets when it comes to software emaulations of the moog sound.

Features
Same as the real Minimoog, plus extras like fx, poly mode, matrix, and multiple instances. This makes Minimoog V even more pleasing to use, as it is identical to the control panel of the real thing.

Ease of Use
Very easy once you get past basic synthesis.

Quality
Top sound, amazing moog filter...period.

Value
Well worth the dough, if like moog synths. this is a real moog, more than 10 times cheaper.

Manufacturer Support
Average, not brilliant, read more but not that bad either.

The Wow Factor
Looks great, and makes you feel like you have a vintage synth inside your cpu. Aside looks, the sound is the most important part, and it doesn't fail.
