A monophonic analog synthesizer
with a 37-note keyboard
. Released in 1975
, also known as Model 300a
Not to be confused with the MiniMoog.
The Minit is a simple preset synth very similar to the Satellite model. It features 2 VCOs which can be detuned and synced to each other. The filter section consists of a 2-pole (12dB/octave) low-pass VCF as well as a variable bi-polar one. A control input jack is available.
Both the filters and the VCA offer individual AD envelope generators. A single LFO is included and features sawtooth and triangle waveforms.
While the unit is essentially a preset keyboard, it does offer some editable parameters like filter cut-off, envelope and modulation times and glide. A sync-sweep function adds depth to the 2-oscillator sound.
The small keyboard is surprisingly aftertouch sensitive. For external control there is a a CV/gate interface.
