WNAMM12: Moog Show Off Their Minitaur

Analog Bass Synthesizer from Moog      20/01/12

No flash plug


   QuickTime (MP4)  | iOS MP4
6:35 mins

Release the beast! The Moog Minitaur offers phat bass in a small package. The synth requires a MIDI controller, but at a weight of 3lbs, it's easy to transport – even if you're carrying a MIDI keyboard around with it.

With 1-knob-per-function, you know where you are. Tweaking sounds is easy and this will probably go down well with dubsteppers.

For hear what a product specialist has to say about the Minitaur, check out the video above. Steve Dunnington tells all you need to know about the product.

Retail price on the Minitaur is $679, and it will be available from Spring of this year.

Agreed. I ordered one last week. Can't wait! I love my T-3's, but this is way more practical, and if you don't need presets, is much better in several key ways.

1-22-12 After receiving a Tweet from BILLY SHEEHAN, I ck'd the NAMM 'Moog Mini' article & vid out. 1st Musicians I thought of are LINKIN PARK & DJ under the name of: 'deamau5' who has many CDs & Sold out Large shows. HE also did a REMIX of my Pals the Foo Fighters & their HIT Song'ROPE' from the 'Wasting Light' Cd produced by BUTCH VIG. 'ROPE Remix' by 'deamau5' Is up for a Grammy Nomination, from what I've been told & what I've read. The Foo Fighters have 6 GRAMMY Nominations for this CD including BEST ROCK ALBUM, BEST SINGLE,(Vid); & Even BUTCH VIG (from NEVERMIND Cd with Nirvana & for the 20th Anniversary of CD) has been nominated as BEST PRODUCER OF THE YEAR. deamau5 comes under the BEST Remix Catagory, I'm told. It is spectacular! LOVE your little MINI Moog! I will spread the word on your product. ANY WAY TO SEND/Share to TWITTER? I'd love to Send to the Foo Fighters & a few other Bands. Thanks! PEACE!

No preset memory. What a bummer. I do like all the knobs. A Slim Phatty is a better bet for me.
