AKAI MINIAK is a powerful performance and production synthesizer. The MINIAK empowers creative musicians with phrase and step sequencing, a built-in drum machine/rhythm sequencer, an arpeggiator, a 40-band vocoder, stereo effects, and a virtual analog synth engine developed in partnership with the world-class Alesis synth team. While the compact, portable synth shines on stage, the MINIAK is also at home in the production studio delivering 24-bit audio resolution.
The MINIAK puts up to eight multi-timbral voices at your fingertips, each with three oscillators. You can create interesting and unique sounds and take advantage of the more-than-600 preset sounds and store up to 1,000 programs in the MINIAK. The synth also has two multi-mode filters, three envelope generators, two LFOs, stereo effects, and a 40-band vocoder. On top of all of this sound-melding power, the MINIAK has a comprehensive sequencer with step and dynamic real time phrase sequencing, a drum machine/rhythm sequencer, and an arpeggiator to aid in creating the landscapes and textures youâre after.
Rounding out this complete instrument are high-resolution, 24-bit balanced 1/4" inputs and outputs. The MINIAK has a 37-key semi-weighted keyboard with velocity sensitivity for all-in-one performance. It can also be used as a sound source for MPCs, computer software, and keyboards via MIDI.
A MINIAK program is a sound built from the MINIAKâs internal oscillators, filters, and envelope generators. The MINIAKâs more than 600 preset programs span the range of classic analog synthesis sounds. If youâve heard it before, you will probably find it in the MINIAKâs presets.
In a synth, oscillators generate raw sound. Their output is fed into the filters, whose output is fed into the amplifiers. As the signal moves along that path, you can manipulate the mix at several points and apply modulations, envelopes, and effects to create a custom palette of sounds.
The oscillators can produce different waveform types and shapes to create various harmonic structures, which our ears perceive as different timbres. Here are some of the waveforms you can create with the MINIAKâs oscillators:
Sine â Smooth, pure soundTriangle â Fuller than a sine waveSawtooth â Harsh sonic characterPulse â Harmonically rich, ranging from full-sounding square wave to a sharp impulse wave
You can connect external audio sources â other synthesizers, mixers, guitars, and more â using the 1/4â inputs. The jacks accept either balanced or unbalanced cables. You can mix in the external audio sources with the MINIAKâs oscillators. The resulting combination is then sent through the MINIAKâs filters and effects. A special group of programs including vocoder programs exists just for use with the external inputs.
The outputs of the oscillators, the noise generator, the ring modulator, and the external inputs are fed into a virtual mixing board called the pre-filter mix. From here, the signal hits the filters. For each source, you can specify its level and its balance: how much is sent to Filter 1 and how much is sent to Filter 2.
