Originally released in 1980, the MINI-SYTHESIZER, was to all extends and purposes an entry level synthesizer. However as other synths of times past it seems to have taken on a bit of a cult following... Used by the likes of Van Halen and Jean Michel Jarre (but what syth hasn't been used by Jarre)

This new app from Electro-Harmonix accurately delivers all the vintage synth sounds of the original plus modern updates.

Intuitive, flexible and powerful control are provided by the MINI-SYNTHESIZER's 12 sliders and nine switches. Here's a breakdown of the user interface:
