Moog Minitaur Analog Bass Synthesizer

Now in version 2.2! Which includes new firmware, wooden sides, and a digital Minitaur editor. 

Moog’s Minitaur Analog Bass synthesizer is a compact but powerful desktop bass synthesizer based on the popular Taurus 3. The unit affords both MIDI and CV control but maintains an entirely analog signal path. One of the best qualities about the Minitaur is the expressiveness of its front panel, which features knobs governing every crucial parameter. There’s also a software editor available for even further editing potential. 

Minitaur Features

  • One knob per function interface for tweaking and creating new sounds on-the-fly
  • Two oscillators with Sawtooth (Original Taurus) and Square wave-shapes for each VCO
  • Recreate sounds of the original Taurus with sawtooth waves, or create new sounds with square waves, or combination of both
  • 2 Mixer VCAs for VCO levels control of Oscillators 1 and 2
  • Moog Ladder Filter with adjustable resonance delivers classic Taurus 1 and 3 bass and boom
  • Two Minimoog style ADSR Envelope Generators for modulating VCF and VCA
  • The Decay and Release segments are controlled by the Decay knob, while the Release segment is enabled or disabled via Release On/Off switch
  • MIDI-syncable LFO with controls for Rate, VCO LFO Amount, and VCF LFO Amount
  • DIN MIDI and MIDI over USB offer complete control of sound engine
  • Analog Control inputs for Pitch, Filter, Volume and Gate
  • Use an EP2 or CV to connect and control MInitaur with everything from Modulars to Moogerfoogers (sold separately)
  • External audio input for processing external audio through the Mixer and Filter section
  • Headphone output with 1/8" connection
