I have been using the NI Monark Mini emulation for live shows and it's really close to the real thing. For some sounds it's almost indiscernible from a real mini. biggest difference seems to be the envelope attack (real minis are very fast) and just the way it feels when you're playing a real analog keyboard as opposed to midi > VSTi. Even with super low latency I feel like there's a perceptible disconnect when I'm playing. Maybe it's in my head though.more
