Moog upgraded the Minitaur to Rev2, that is enough to save 100 patches and jump through them with one key hold as “SHIFT” key – which is quite clever to handle.
– and Decay and Release now control different things in “one time for decaying envelope” mode. this works from the panel, no software needed.
the best one is this:
Minitaur’s CV and Gate inputs are now assignable from the Minitaur Editor/Librarian software. The Pitch and Mod CV inputs can be routed to any function, while the Gate input can be routed to functions with on/off behavior. REV 2 also enables Minitaur to effectively function as an intuitive CV to MIDI converter. -> so – 2 CVs and 1 Gate to set up ranging to 5V.
the update is free, so all bass belong to them, as “they” say at Moog..
btw- that Q25 Keyboard from Alesis was one of the nicer small and MIDI capable Keyboards made (and not too big) – update: seems it is still available
