Best free VST minimoog emulations for Windows

The Minimoog ! one of the synth that had the biggest impact in history of synths.
This is a difficult task to emulate the moog sound with virtual synth, you have to take care of the electronic components and their characteristics.

 

 

Let’s start the dance :

 

1. MinimogueVA by Gunnar

MinimogueVA : free miniMoog VST emulation!

MinimogueVA : free miniMoog VST emulation!

Download and information : Gunnar archive site

Based on the Richard Brooks synthedit sources of “mogue”, this is a very nice VST emulation of the famous miniMoog synthesizer.
It’s a Synthedit creation : It works for Windows and 32 bit VST hosts.
You can also found a polyphonic version (MinimogueLuxus VST).
The three oscillators are here, and the filter does the job.
A simple arpeggiator is also a nice addition.

5. ASynth by Antti.

Asynth VST !

Asynth VST !

download and test it : http://antti.smartelectronix.com/

It’s not really a Minimoog emulation, but with its two oscillators and the filter set on “MINI” , it does “Moog-ish sounds”. The quality is superior. Don’t forget to check out the Taurus emulation on the same site too !
ASynth VST is donationware, and still one of the best VSTi.

 

 

6. Minimoog+ by Synthfellow

Synthfellow Minimoog+ VST

Synthfellow Minimoog+ VST

Info : archive & download

This is an oooold VST plugin created with Synthedit about 10 years ago.
It has some playing/retrigger bugs, some parameters are not well “calibrated” and the presets don’t do it justice.
But with some tweaking, it can do nice leads and bass !

 

 

7. Prodigious by Synthescience

Prodigious VST

Prodigious VST

A good synthedit creation, it’s inspired by the legendary miniMoog, and it adds some interesting features : chorus + delay. You can modulate the filter, and there’s an arpegiator!
