The Minimonsta interface. Reading, U.K. (July 13, 2007)–The fourth and final instrument in GForce’s range–the Minimonsta: Melohman-has gotten a Universal Binary update. The Minimonsta is a Minimoog “on steroids,” with added punch and attitude, according to the company. It should also be noted that the Minimonsta is the only GForce application that can also be used as an effect.
The original Minimoog was used by Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, Rick Wakeman and Steve Winwood. The Minimonsta’s roster of users includes many of those pioneers as well. “I closed my eyes and could not believe it was not the real thing,” says Winwood of GMedia’s virtual version. Wakeman adds, “There’s simply nothing out there that comes close to this little beauty.”
The update is free to users who purchased and registered their instrument after October 1, 2006. For these users, the instrument has automatically been allocated to their accounts at the GForce website. If you purchased your Minimonsta before that date, you will need to update to the Universal Minimonsta via the shop at £13.99 (plus VAT), €19.99 (plus VAT) or $26.
