Studio Electronics Midimini V30

The Midimini was the first Studio Electronics synthesizer built from scratch (and not retrofitted). Over 30 years later, nothing has been lost in the translation and enrichment of this rackmount essential. A legion of brand-new hardware features, extensive software sweetening, and select modular connections opens the window even wider to an already stunning analog view.
