This plugin was originally designed
for use on the Audio Technology (AT) module, part of the music tech. courses
at UWE Bristol.
During the pandemic, students lost access to our Mac-based computer labs during lockdown, and Logic's ES synthesis plugins, used in both teaching and assessment tasks on synthesis design.
The miniMeep plugin was conceived in the absence of an existing freely available cross-platform alternative that presented the generic building blocks of synthesis.
If you're interested in using the plugin in your classes, please contact me for info.
miniMeep is a polyphonic subtractive synthesiser AU/VST plugin based on an analogue-style
semi-modular design - oscillators, filters, amplifiers and modulation.
It has been specially developed to support this assignment and learning synthesis, through the design of preset(s). It therefore contains no factory presets, but is capable of a wide variety of musical timbres (including many classic synth sounds) - and supports the loading and saving of user presets, as well as full DAW automation.
miniMeep's design, sound quality, and capabilities are comparable to many other subtractive software and hardware synthesisers, allowing you to explore timbres not only through experimentation, but through familiarity with other synthesisers, general synthesis concepts, videos, tutorials, etc. miniMeep also demonstrates what is possible with the mySynth platform.
