Creamware Minimax ASB
 
The Creamware Minimax Asb is a digital reincarnation of the legendary Moog Minimoog (Model D). It was released 10 years ago but unfortunately the company that made it doesn't exist anymore.
The Minimax is incredibly close to the sound of Model D and also adds polyphony, Midi, effects, presets and user patches.
Its build like a tank, and the wood frame is a nice addition.
It comes with a Windows and Mac software witch offers patch editing, effect parameters, aftertouch assignment etc.. but the software is very very old and outdated, and thats the reason I gave it 3 on features. There is an incredible feature accessible straight from the interface tho.. if you are familiar with the Minimoog "overloading" trick, well, there is a button in the interface to do it without any cables involved, and it sounds absolutely amazing.
The Minimax is quite rare these days, and if you by any chance find your self near one give it a try, you will be amazed.

Pros:
-Amazing Sound
-Good quality materials
-Mono/Poly switch

Cons:
-Outdated software
-A few little bugs here and there
