RA Mowg is a Minimoog Model D clone created by Roberson Audio. Another addition to the lineup of Roberson Audio's collection of vintage replica synths, many many months have been spent to create an instrument that not only resembles the Minimoog in appearance, but delivers the same feel while playing. From the deep, full-bodied filters, to the mellow analog-style oscillators, to the distortive drive from feedback-looping the output, this instrument can give you the feeling of playing a Minimoog without spending a small fortune to do so. For more technical info and notes before playing the synth, see the ReadMe file.
According to Robinson an acoustical recording must have a constant-amplitude characteristic which will be correctly reproduced by playing back with a gramophone needle or a piezoelectric crystal pickup. A magnetic cartridge will – by its constant velocity characteristic – double the amplitude whenever the frequency doubles. To compensate for the magnetic pickup MidiMagic recommends an “800N-16” EQ curve, which comes close to the theoretical characteristic of a constant velocity device. Some more information is here on record labels and on technical background . Please note that the acoustical recording characteristic is not equalized at all.
