For over 40 years, the Moog Taurus has been the secret weapon of artists and producers around the globe for generating earth-shaking bass.
The Minitaur is the newest addition to the Taurus family of analogue Bass Synthesizers. It is an inconspicuously compact, subharmonic bass machine designed to integrate seamlessly into any performance or computer-based music workflow. Just like its progenitors, the Minitaur effortlessly does one thing above all others… wall splitting analogue BASS.
The solid steel enclosure of the Minitaur is deceptively simple - offering immediate access to critical sound design and performance controls only. This makes Minitaur extremely fast and easy to use--but just under the surface lies a vast expanse of dynamic and inspirational power that is instantly accessible from almost any laptop or MIDI controller.
The free Minitaur Editor software truly unlocks Minitaur's power and flexibility by making DAW integration and control completely seamless on both Mac and Windows machines. Load and save up to 128 presets onto your Minitaur, select from 6 different modulation waveshapes , engage Hard Sync, access full ADSR envelopes, MIDI sync the LFO, reset oscillator waveform cycles, polychain with other Moog synthesizers and more. Every feature can be manipulated, automated and recalled instantly.
This secret weapon of artists and producers around the globe has been upgraded with new firmware, greatly expanding the instrument's sonic capabilities: create evolving organic bass that moves by isolating modulations to oscillator 2 only, or engage hard sync to turn Minitaur into a hyper-focused bass laser with pinpoint accuracy. Five new modulation wave shapes unlock access to syncopated sweeps and analogue percussion sounds, while Minitaur's assignable CV/GATE inputs allow a world of inter-connective possibilities to unfold 'outside of the box'.
• Save And Recall Up To 128 Onboard Presets - Select and save directly from your Minitaur's front panel, via MIDI controller or with the free Minitaur Editor / Librarian software.
• Free Editor/Librarian Software - Seamless DAW integration now with full Windows support!
• 5 New Modulation Sources (Tri, Sqr, Saw, Ramp, S&H and Filter EG)
• Hard Sync - Access a completely new sonic palette with your Minitaur
• Modulate Oscillator 2 Only - Pair with Hard Sync for syncopated metallic sweeps and surges
• Assignable CV/GATE Inputs - Control any feature on or under the hood of your Minitaur via control voltage.
• CV TO MIDI Conversion - Bring control voltage into your DAW for analogue control over digital circuits

On reviewing the original synth again I could not get the power of the Minitaurs bass sound out of my mind, there was no comparison hence my purchase. It's great that I can automate the Minitaur from other sequencers via it's midi in. Thunderous 'I Feel Love' style bass easily attainable from the Minitaur if that is what you desire. Also stands up perfectly next to the vintage sounds from a Minimoog and Prodigy both of which I have used.|
