The MiniMod system
We have recreated what was probably the most epic and fattest sounding portable monophonic synthesiser of all time and adapted it to Eurorack modular synthesiser format. We spent over 18 months on research and development, we used exactly the same internal circuitry and internal signal levels and carefully selected every component to ensure that we got closer to the original than ever before.
But don't just take our word for it...
"I have been involved in music production since the 80's and I have to say I have seen and heard many claim to get the vintage Model D sound but you guys really went the extra mile to make it happen"
Damian Salza, Musician, Oregon, US
"Of course, it can sound just like a Moog filter, whether used to create euphonic sounds or terrorised shreiks. What's not to like?"
Gordon Reid, Sound On Sound Review, July 2016
MiniMod music from DreamsOfWires
MiniMod system demo 1 by Wayne Taylor (Dreams of Wires). A beautiful and haunting composition, with all instrument parts played solely on the AJH Synth MiniMod system.
AJH Synth modules, in Dark Edition or Silver
Newly added "Dark Edition" modules are now in production, with Vintage style Black Fascia Panels and control knobs,so now there is a choice of either Classic Eurorack silver or Vintage black designs. Both variants share the same huge sounding, critically acclaimed all analogue circuitry which has already lead to the AJH MiniMod being described as a future Eurorack Classic!.
New MiniMod Soundcloud demos
A collection of superb MiniMod based tracks in a variety of different genres, skillfully crafted by one of our first US customers, Damian Salza. Increadibly every sound that you hear has been created with the MiniMod, including all of the percussion too! It gives a great insight into the wide range of sounds that the Minimod is capable of producing. Many thanks Damian!
An excellent collection of sounds and textures from electronic musician Koshimazaki (Radek Rudnicki), created using the AJH Synth Ring SM and Sonic XV Modules.
MiniMod meets Early Minimoog Model D Video
Our quest was to bring the unbeatable fatness and legendary sounds of this classic synthesiser to the 3U Modular world. We have separated the synth into five modules, comprising:
VCO, VCF, VCA, Dual Contour, and Glide + Noise, which can be easily integrated into an existing Eurorack system or, with the addition of a case and power supply, it becomes a self contained stand alone synthesiser.
