Desktop keyboard synth so without quite pokey dedicated low. The latest addition to the series of Moog Inc Taurus but WITHOUT pedals
Solid construction, Moog knobs (small and large to filter cutoff)
On Rev. 2, 100 location of sounds programmed on the synthesizer and / or with the standalone editor. it gives access to hidden function "under the hood" only accessible by MIDI CC
I repeat this is a 100% analog synth dedicated low although Moog comes with its editor patches Lead, Pad and FX

Complete Audio Connectors (mono) In and Out, Headphone, Midi In, USB (MIDI Editor) and especially HP (Pitch, Filter, Volume and Gate)
The editor works great on my Mac OS 10.8.3. It includes a library that allows you to save the sounds and transfer them to the Moog. Function "Random" nice but not configurable
100% analog monophonic synth

UTILIZATION

Very simple configuration. I would recommend to someone who wants to learn about subtractive synthesis. 2 VCO 1 24dB filter, 2 envelopes (VCA, VCF), 1 LFO
2 waveform by VCO, low pass filter only, standard envelopes ADS (R) D
a variable glide
Most modules have mentioned supplements parameters (hidden function see above). Eg retrigger the LFO, VCO-2, the mode of operation of glide etc ...
that allow us to go farther level synthesis
But first hardware synth alone is a wonderful creative tool (or initiation subtractive)

SOUNDS

Sounds ......
Moog is ....... rich bass as you will never get with another synth. That said and at the risk of offending some purists, I find that the envelopes Moog (at least those with whom I've worked with: Slim Phatty and Minitaur) does not seem to me the wrath of war in terms of speed. PERSONALLY I think that Envelopes Clavia (NL) are faster
This prevents the low quality generated by this mini synth nothing

Again, for me, this synth is a synth bass with a multitude of variation .... but low in essence

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a week (I know it is not ...) but I have not explored the evil beast and then, as mentioned above, it is so simple and ergonomic grip that is very simple . No menu and submenu (incidentally is not even display)
I had to Moog, and before Minitaur, a Slim Phatty has displeased me enough (less punchy I think the Minitaur, lack of stability in pitch). So I hesitated a lot before taking me a new Moog but then .... even if the decline is small I grant you, is the claque
I pass over the MOPHO and Evolver (for analog) I do not like.
I tried BassStation II and Minibrute (in-store only) and I do not regret my choice to have retained the MOOG
What I like most:
Sound-
-Simplicity and ergonomics
USB-MIDI and editor / library

What I do not like:
-So far nothing
Ah so ........ flanks optional wood over 50 € (when you see the finish, it's really a scam)

In conclusion: this synth is expensive but it is a legend and he does not betray its origins. Contrary to what I thought, not to stick him behind 2 flanger, chorus 1, 1 distortion and a bit of delay. The Moog sound is sufficient to itself. I did not understand it until recently because this is where the analog expresses that magic

Pleasantly surprised ....

Moog Music MinitaurPublished on 04/10/13 at 12:52
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Well I will not dwell on the machine as it is easy to watch videos on youtube.
Just say that the first edge is rather well built, quite heavy for its size and therefore a sign of strength. Plugs jacks are good quality plastic anything, to see the length ..
The knobs are nice and beefy look.
More than anything else for delirium, I paid for the ears to the rack with big logo moog and I de-board solution for this pretty but not very useful because the truth is small and Minitaur be placed n 'anywhere without taking up space so no use to the rack ...
Over the said ears are not thick (2mm) so flimsy. (And it denotes too big next to my moog units 19 "vocoder, EQ, Phazer ....)

UTILIZATION

Nothing more simple even if the book is to download and not in French.
With some callback or memory requiring reading manual for combinations of buttons ...
Editing software on mac / pc can be downloaded from the website after registration moog but I can not dwell on the subject, using no computer for music.
I use midi with an MPC2000XL, an ORB or other sequencers and almost exclusively for bass or percussion sound (very interesting thanks to the speed of the filter, lfo) and therefore noon (of Moreover this is the only negative point in my opinion of Minitaur, no out noon).

SOUNDS

The sound is obviously not equivalent to a true Taurus nor his old moog known but it has a good grain especially for low or both synthetic percussion sounds, but also leave some aggressive leads and properly modulated.
I personally think it sounds a little better as the slimPhatty, although fewer opportunities.

OVERALL OPINION

I recently started using and so can not yet speak, including its presence in the mix compared to my old machine.
But for now I would say that the price and the recent moog, it is rather a small mono-synth interesting and I am pleasantly surprised by its noise footprint compared to other products such as recent moog voyagers, subphatty or the last, that I appreciate very much and I probably will not buy it.
I have very good machines with big sound rich in harmonics, machines certainly old, fragile and bulky but that is not always required to effects such as reverb, chorus or other that it sounds in a mix.
The Minitaur him to need a little boost in output to gain harmonics but this is only myself and my tastes dinosaur.
And I think his use of Ordi with Live example is really nice if you are not allergic to vst / vsti like me.
So what other machines it exists cheaper Domino eowave genre by exploring the use we want to do in this category, the Minitaur is a small mono synth well enough to go above the live without need to take the truck .....
