Overview

A beast for bass lovers.

With Moog's Minotaur, you don't have to traverse a labyrinth to create analog bass sounds of mythical proportions. Part of the Taurus family of Moog instruments, this compact analog bass synthesizer provides you with all the growl, snarl and low end its siblings are known for in an uncomplicated one knob per function format. Whether you're using it as part of your live rig or as extra weapon in your studio arsenal, the Minotaur, unlike it's legendary namesake, has a small footprint, measuring a mere 8.5 x 5.25 in.

This rugged synthesizer features two oscillators with Sawtooth and Square wave-shapes for each VCO so you can recreate the sounds of the original Taurus, create new sounds with square waves or do a combination of both. There is also a Moog Ladder Filter with adjustable resonance for old-school bass with impact, 2 Minimoog-style ASDSR Envelope Generators for VCF and VCA, MIDI-syncable LFO with control for Rate, VCO LFO and VCF LFO amount. It also comes with DIN MIDI and MIDI over USB for even more control options, as well as external audio input so you can process your own external audio through it's mixer and filters for even crazier bass combinations.
