Synth Glossary

Control input:
An input into part of the synthesizer that allows that bit to be modulated by another part of the synth. For example there is a control input in the amplifier which controls the level of amplification. If a very slow sine wave (an LFO) is patched into this input then the sound will slowly get louder and quieter. If an LFO was patched into the control input of the oscillator instead, then the sound would go higher and lower in pitch....

Minitmoog
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.
