Look what I found, or better what was shown to me (thanks Ole) via this www.facebook.com/pages/HET-INC – reduced the synth to the minimum
don’t know if this is “real” or photoshopped, but nice. – seems it’s real 600 USD.
YES this is a new Moog and it’s really neat, smart and small enough.
Here’s an audio (MP3)- all Minitaur except Bassdrum (they say) – in fact it’s more a Taurus than a Little or Slim Phatty, soundwise..
AND IT IS Minitaur Analog Synthesizer, not Minotaur!!
the quote is here:
The Minitaur Analog Synthesizer is a compact table-top monophonic MIDI-and-CV-controllable analog bass synthesizer module with a 100% analog audio signal path, based on the design of the Taurus 3 bass synthesizer.
The front panel features a knob-per-function design, for maximum real-time tweakability. There are no internally stored presets, but presets can be created and managed via MIDI. The MINITAUR has several new features added to the classic Taurus synth engine, including an external audio input, that expand the basic synthesis and sound design capability of the instrument. Minitaur fits right into the computer based music production rig or is easily controlled via MIDI controller.
100% analog audio signal path based on Taurus I and Taurus III synthesizers.
2 Taurus VCOs with variable Glide amount
Sawtooth (original Taurus) or Square waveform selection for both VCOs
External Audio Input
2 Mixer VCAs for setting the level of the VCOs
1 VCF Moog/Taurus-style Ladder Filter w/ VC Resonance
Two Minimoog-style ADSR Envelope generators with the Decay and Release segments controlled by the Decay knob plus a Release On/Off switch
1 MIDI-syncable triangle wave LFO for modulating VCF/VCOs
DIN MIDI In and MIDI over USB out and full MIDI Controllers are in here!
start at 1:43 if you want to HEAR it…
