French music software house Arturia are giving away a version of the Minimoog V, a software recreation of the legendary Minimoog synthesiser, for free.
As Arturia themselves explain, in January 2004, they announced the Minimoog V in collaboration with Moog Music. Now, eight years later, their agreement with Moog Music is coming to an end. Their way of paying tribute to Bob Moog, who not only programmed the original hardware synth, but initiated the original deal with Arturia and played a role in developing the Minimoog’s software recreation, is to give away this commemorative version. The original would usually set you back around $229.
