I was about to buy a set of MIDI bass pedals...but not now.

...not if I can get MIDI pedals with Taurus-1 guts included.

=D>

I hope they have something, even a mockup, for me to oggle at NAMM come January. :shock:
Best Regards, James

What no pictures to look at? Demo sounds nice.

Should have deleted the other thread man.

why not build a little phatty version with the sound engine of this taurus 1, maybe it would sound better than a little phatty???

Playing floor units just ain't for me, but I would love to have a modern moog that sounded closer to a vintage taurus 1.
for sale/trade: EML-101

I think it's interesting that Moog seems to be focusing on reproducing the originals of its glory days -- with MIDI. If this is a trend, or corporate strategy, it could be both a good thing and a bad thing.

this is cool

but...

just sayin
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

There's nothing to show yet. However, a computer rendering would be nice.

Wow, that's wicked sweet. Taurus with MIDI and memory, sounds like a winner. I wonder if old Taurus will drop in value? Maybe they'll bring back the MemoryMoog while they're at it... =P~

Doubt it would bring the original prices down. It might.. but I look at it like this: did the Voyager and OS prices make the Model D drop? I haven't noticed it, the prices still seem to be going up. A modern MemoryMoog would be very nice. It would probably be insanely expensive though. More than a new Andromeda I bet.

I am excited about the new Taurus despite knowing that I most likely wouldn't buy it. It's nice to have newer models released so people have alternatives to the aging equipment. Sound differences aside, it's the best thing. I love the Taurus when used on Jarre's Concerts in China. Such a wonderful sound. The new one still has that character and sound from what I can tell.
Well fffff.

Looks like they don't exist yet. From the web page:

Just quietly, the original Taurus had memory too.

It did? Learn something new everyday I suppose.

That's true I suppose. Then again I can't afford any of this so I'm not effected either way. :cry:

Holy c**p the bull is back!

I was hoping for the classic Taurus sound too, but the demos didn't get me all that excited, I'll wair for some high quality audios for further opinions.
