Synth Glossary

Granular Synthesis:
The sound is split into small chunks called granules. These may then be processed in various ways to acheive various effects - for example, to stretch a sound (timestreching) the granules will be played back so as to overlap each other. An interesting effect can also be obtained by playing the granules backwards....


Basically an expanded Satellite, the Minitmoog is one of the rarest of all the Moogs, due to the fact that so few were made. It is a monophonic, dual oscillator (with sync), preset synthesizer with aftertouch, which can control sync sweep, pitch bend, filter cutoff, or modulation. The available presets were Mute, Trumpet, Oboe, Clarinet, Sax, Taurus, Violin, Piano, Guitar I, Guitar II, Aries, Lunar, and Flute. It was transposable down 1, 2, or 3 octaves and it had height-adjustable back legs.
