Minimal Audio Releases Current, A Subscription-Based Soft Synth Powerhouse

Looks like Minimal Audio team has been very busy over the last few years and shows no sign of slowing down.

Minimal Audio, the developer of Rift,  Fuse Compressor, and the subscription-based sample platform Stream, has announced the release of a new plugin. Minimal Audio’s first virtual instrument Current, a subscription-based synth, sampler and multi-effects plugin that is “more than just another soft synth”. Current comprises a number of synth engines alongside a sampler, effects suite and a Splice-style cloud-based content platform.

The core of Current’s are five sound engines. These include a two-oscillator wavetable synth, a granular synth and an FM synth, alongside a sampler module and an additive sub oscillator.

These run through a versatile dual filter, offering a number of filter types (morphing, comb, phaser and more) and into an effects section that houses Minimal’s entire suite of audio effects, including the Rift distortion plugin, Morph EQ, Cluster Delay and Fuse Compressor, alongside a reverb, chorus, and phaser.

Current also gives users access to a cloud-based content platform that Minimal have called Stream. This features a regularly updated library of presets, wavetables and sounds, alongside a steady stream of curated sample packs crafted by Minimal’s sound design team.

Current also features a flexible, MPE-compatible modulation system, equipped with LFOs, envelopes, curve sequencers and envelope followers, alongside two MIDI effects, an arpeggiator and chord generator.

Unlike Minimal Audio’s effects plugins, Current is a subscription-based product that costs $15 monthly or $120 annually, including 30-Day Free Trial.

Current is available now for Windows and Mac in VST2/VST3/AU/AAX formats. Find out more about Current on Minimal Audio website.
