The black Minitaur Analog Bass Synthesizer from Moog is a programmable analog bass synthesizer designed with a one-knob-per-function design, allowing you to adjust your sounds on the fly. Its internal memory is capable of storing up to 100 presets for recalling your favorite parameters. The Minitaur's sound engine is powered by 2 oscillators with selectable sawtooth or square waveshapes.

The synth supports via 5-pin DIN and USB MIDI, which offers control over both playing and the Minitaur's LFO, allowing it to be used to create dubstep-style wobbles and sweeps. Its rear-panel control voltage inputs provide access for additional tweaking of your pitch, filter, and volume with external CV sources, while the 1/4" mono audio input allows you to use the Minitaur's filter and envelopes on other audio sources.

  • Store 100 presets to Minitaur's internal memory
  • Decay/Release mode allows for independent control of Decay and Release times from Minitaur's front panel
  • Pitch, Volume and Gate Controller inputs can be re-mapped to other control parameters
  • Minitaur can act as a CV to MIDI converter
  • 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 a combination of both
  • 2 Mixer VCAs for VCO levels control of Oscillators 1 and 2
  • Moog Ladder Filter with adjustable resonance delivers 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
  • 5-pin DIN MIDI and MIDI over USB offer complete control of the Minitaur's 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
  • External audio input for processing external audio through the Mixer and Filter section of Minitaur
  • Headphone output with 1/8" connection
  • Steel chassis
  • Type Programmable Monophonic Analog Bass Synthesizer

    Frequency: +/- 12 semitones
    Wave: Sawtooth/Square
    Level: 0 to 100%

    Glide Rate: 0 to 100%
    Filters Cutoff: 20 Hz to 20 kHz
    Resonance: 0 to Self-Oscillation
    Filter Envelope Amount: -100% to 100%
    Envelope Generators 2x Envelope Generators
    Attack Time: 1 ms to 30 s
    Decay Time: 1 ms to 30 s
    Sustain Level: 0 to 100%
    Release Time: 1 ms to 30 s
    Release: On/Off
    Modulation LFO Rate with Rate LED: 0.0 1 to 100 H z
    Wave: Triangle
    Amount to VCO: 0 to 100%
    Amount to VCF: 0 to 100%
    Controls VCO 2 Frequency - Sets the frequency offset of VCO 2 from VCO 1 from -1 Octave to +1 Octave. Center is unison with VCO 1
    Oscillator 1 & 2 Saw/Square Waveform Selector: Selects a Sawtooth wave (LED Off) or Square wave (LED On) Signal for VCO 1 and 2
    VCO 1 Level: Sets the level of VCO 1
    VCO 2 Level: Sets the level of VCO 2
    VCF Cutoff: Sets the Cutoff Frequency of the 4-pole Moog Low-pass VCF from 20 Hz to 20 kHz
    VCF Resonance: Sets the gain for the amount of signal from the output of the VCF fed back to the input of the VCF. This creates a peak in frequency response at the Cutoff Frequency that can be increased all the way to self-oscillation
    VCF EG Amount: Bi-polar control sets the (+) or (-) amount of Envelope Generator modulation of the VCF. Center is no Envelope Generator modulation
    LFO Rate: Sets the frequency of the LFO. Range is from 0.01 Hz to 100 Hz
    LFO VCO Amount: Sets the amount that the LFO modulates the VCO
    LFO VCF Amount: Sets the amount that the LFO modulates VCF
    VCA EG Attack: Sets the attack Time of a Minimoog-style ADSR Envelope Generator used to modulate the VCA. Time ranges from 1 ms to 30 s
    VCA EG Decay/Release: Sets both the decay time to the sustain level and release time of a Minimoog-style ADSR Envelope Generator used to modulate the VCA. Time ranges from 1 ms to 30 s. The Release segment of the EG is enabled by the Release On/Off switch
    VCA EG Sustain: Sets the sustain level of a Minimoog-Style ADSR Envelope Generator used to modulate the VCA
    VCF EG Attack: Sets the attack time of a Minimoog-Style ADSR Envelope Generator used to modulate the VCF. Time ranges from 1 ms to 30 s
    VCF EG Decay/Release: Sets both the decay time to the sustain level and release time of a Minimoog-Style ADSR Envelope Generator used to modulate the VCF. Time ranges from 1 ms to 30 s. The Release segment of the EG is enabled by the Release On/Off switch
    VCF EG Sustain: Sets the sustain level of a Minimoog-Style ADSR Envelope Generator used to modulate the VCF
    Release On/Off Switch: Enables (LED On or Disables (LED Off) the Release segments of both Envelope Generators
    Glide On/Off Switch: Enables/ Disables the Glide function
    Glide: Sets the rate of Glide when the note controlling the Minitaur changes
    Volume: The Master Volume of the MINITAUR's synth engine
    Fine Tune: Adjusts the frequency of the VCOs +/- 1 semitone
