The fact that it is hand-built and uses high-grade components means that this is a synth that will not buckle under prolonged use, unlike many of the cheaper options out there. The through-hole construction of this synth also allows for easy long-term maintenance.

Studio Electronics also kept the VCO, VCF, and envelope design the same as the original hardware. The inclusion of a dedicated LFO is also a step up from the vintage MidiMini. The LFO features seve
