Minimoog Inspired Set

It is so easy to be inspired by the Minimoog.  Such as classic design and sound that is still sought after today.  While being a digital synthesizer, the XW-series can do a pretty remarkable job of mimicking those classic Moog sounds.   The Minimoog had 3 oscillators plus a noise generator and although the XW has a 4th oscillator in its Solo Synth engine – all of these sounds were crafted with the original in mind.  A set of 10 Leads and basses, the specialties of the Minimoog
