Download free demo version

A demo version can be downloaded and used for free, but does not include the following features:

  • Patch management
  • Patch randomisation
  • OSC interfacing

It can be used as a fully functional patch editor. I recommend trying the demo before purchasing the full version of the software to ensure it suits your needs and works with your synthesizer

Version History


  • Added an OSC interface, allowing realtime control of Miniak Patch Editor (and the Miniak) from other OSC aware applications
  • Added ‘auto patch retrieval mode’ – Miniak Patch Editor automatically retreives the loaded patch from the Miniak to keep the editor and your synth in sync
  • Bugfix: certain filter types could only have a maximum frequency of 10KHz, instead of the full 20KHz
