Arturia has announced the end of an agreement with Moog Music that will see its Moog Modular V and Minimoog V soft synths soon remerging as the updated and renamed Modular V and Mini-V, and is marking the occasion by giving away Minimoog-V Original, a one-off ‘commemorative’ edition of the Minimoog-V, on World Music Day.

Arturia Minimoog-V Original
Get the free Arturia Minimoog-V Original on June 21st, 2012.

On June 21 only, musicians everywhere can download Minimoog-V Original from the Arturia website — for free! Minimoog-V Original includes all the sounds (more than 1,000 presets created by talented artists and renowned sound designers) and features (32-voice polyphony, plus much more besides) from the latest Minimoog- V update (Version 2.5), but without the additional functionality accessible behind the ‘hinged’ front panel — just like the original Minimoog.

Minimoog by name. Minimoog by nature. It’s been several successful years since Arturia announced the release of its much-admired Minimoog-V soft synth — meticulously modelling the distinctive tones and analogue nuances of the legendary Seventies-vintage Minimoog Model D monosynth — in an agreement with Moog Music initiated by Bob Moog himself. Moog changed the musical world with the Minimoog and Arturia helped change the music software world with the Minimoog-V, so what better way to toast the passing of that productive partnership and end the arrangement between the two companies on a high note than with a generous giveaway on World Music Day?

Don’t miss out: go get Minimoog-V Original for free on June 21! Save the ‘download date’ in your calendar…

    Great news but not mentioned one importatnt thing: “Functions behind the front panel are not available but all sounds and features from the Minimoog V2.5 (a $229/219Eur product) are included. Just like the original Minimoog.”

      It does mention it right there in the quoted text: “but without the additional functionality accessible behind the ‘hinged’ front panel — just like the original Minimoog.”
      So you still get access to all the knobs on the front panel.

        Oh, I’m sorry, Ronnie. I thought it is just “preset” version of Arturia Minimoog (without movable knobs and automation). So this is great freebie. Thanks Arturia :-)

    Can anyone access Arturia’s site? I tried 3 different browsers with no success. First tried after midnight and it’s still not accessible at least on my end!

      I happened to get in early this morning but right now the site is getting hammered… Good luck!

      Oh, and if you have Facebook you can get it there instead, but you’ll have to wait for a while to get the code I think http://www.facebook.com/arturia2/app_273259112707534
