The AJH Synth MiniMod is an accurate recreation of the original MiniMoog Model D, featuring identical circuitry and component values. Because of this, the MiniMod replicates the Model D’s envelope response.
However, the MiniMod does contain some notable upgrades, including independent decay switches on each contour generator (whereas the original used a single switch for both generators). When the switch is flipped up the MiniMod operates in AD mode, when flipped down the unit changes to ADSD mode.
This is the BLACK version of the MiniMod Contour Generator.
MiniMod Contour Generators Features
Two Independent Contour Envelope Generators in a Eurorack Module, accurately replicating those on the Moog Model D with identical circuitry and component values running on the correct +9.3V and -10V supply voltages of the original
Manual Trigger Buttons for each Contour Generator
Envelope Status LED Indication for each Contour Generator
Independent Decay Select Switches for each Contour Generator: Changes the Contour Response from AD Mode (Switch UP) to ADSD Mode (Switch DOWN)
Attack 1 and 2 for each Contour Generator (10ms to 10s)
Decay 1 and 2 for each Contour Generator (10ms to 10s)
Sustain 1 and 2 Level Control for each Contour Generator
Gate 1 and 2 Inputs for each Contour Generator
Contour Generator Envelope Output 1 and 2 for each Contour Generator
The first patch in this video is a bass sound with two saw oscillators overdriving the Transistor Ladder Filter. The second patch uses the shark tooth waves as well sub bass waveforms generated by the Ring SM module, a delay makes the sequence sound more complex and a second MiniMod Filter is used on the delay repeats. In the third patch one oscillator is synched to the other and the delay is still used.
The AJH MiniMod Eurorack modules bring the great sound of the MiniMoog Model D discrete circuitry into the Eurorack format with a look reminiscent of large format Moog Modulars.
