Trying to use old MiniMg patches
« on: April 02, 2004, 02:07:47 am »
I just got my MiniMg V this week and I absolutely love it!!!!!  My question is not a real big concern in the grand scheme of things but I pulled out a very old book called Sound Charts:  MiniMg by Tom Rhea.  This is an old book of MiniMg patches from the 1970s published by Mg Music.  I thought it would be interesting to program a bunch of those patches on the Mini V and save them so I could call them up quickly.  The deal though is, they don't sound right on the Mini V and they definitely don't sound the same as they did on the real thing.  Any reasons why not?

Of course I can't complain because all the cool patches that came with the MiniMg V sound light years better than the stuff in my old patch book.

One major difference between the real and the virtual miniMg,is the way the oscillators are tunning. To be more usefull with the mouse, the oscillators are coarse tunning by semi-tone with right click, and fine tunning with left click. On the real miniMg the oscillators was tunning from about +/-  one octave with one knob.
For the square, the virtual can output a totally 50% pulse square, the real miniMg not, so you have to tune the pulse width by right click on the wave form selector.
