Moog Music Minitaur
I do not intend to dwell on the sheet we found both on the manufacturer's website, on this site, just about everywhere on the net.
I bought this Moog in the idea of ​​replacing a Taurus that I do not and have a machine dedicated to bass.

Machine very well built, good finishes, good looks, we feel we can use time and take it everywhere!

UTILIZATION

As a child use it only includes the use out of the box: knobs for little bit of possibilities ... It sounds live and spent the first twenty hours finding sounds cool AND usable as home again.

I tried to use via usb and use the software to download on the website of Moog Music. Okay, I admit I've never understood, it has never really worked ... No problem with my noon against DAW ... Only concern, therefore, unable to save my sounds ... But it is so easy to remake it does not bother me.

SOUNDS

Compared to NordRack 2x or BassSation I had before, there are no comparison in my opinion: it Minitaur, trapping all! It's really enjoyable! It is very powerful, and it moves much lower abdomen. A good slap. So I sold all my bass boxes above.

on the other hand, it almost do not know - and it does not hide - as low ... Impossible to have a lead (with several iiiiiiii for treble). Shame ...

I am amused to stick him a lot of sound effects to torture and it makes really good. But gross, it really makes already enormous.

OVERALL OPINION

My problem ... Is that since my path crossed the path of a Prodigy of the same brand ... And there ben Minitaur this does not sound at all like I thought ... It seemed powerful, but the Prodigy buried ... I felt fat, heavy and dynamic times compared to Prodigy but it seems to me at once super smooth, almost bland ... I sold it soon ...

So it was a very good machine, reliable, well damn, practical, ideal for home studio and easy to carry, but I think my tastes are decidedly inclined towards "authentic" ... So, even if I no longer like the Taurus for the moment, I do all my bass synths with Prodigy. I do not regret having bought this Minitaur who opened the way to and from the Moog sound "vintage" to me between neo 90's analog or VA, that made me proud services. I'm saving now to find a Taurus time before trying the re ... :-) ...
