yeah... the Source only had 8... and realistically, are there more than 8 normal "moog" sounds? :ugeek:

-snap-bass
-rez-bass
-slow-rise lead
-fast lead
-vibrato lead
-sync lead
-rez lead
-wah bass

That's all I can think of :lol:

Hope it doesn't look exactly like the phatty though; those bent rear panels reek of dated post-modern.

oh, huh... that's a 200% increase in patch space! Now you can have "rez bass 2", and a patch called "funny" 8-)

i REALLY wish that Moog (and the rest of you lot) would do away with technologically determinist titles for their synth. that last Minitaur really let me down when i heard (and correct me if i'm wrong but) that as a 'bass synth' it didnt even trigger the upper octaves? what fun is a synthesizer, the instrument thats able to synthesize any sound imaginable, when you clip its wings and reduce it's range? i thought thats why we left the whole bass/alto/tenor/soprano range-per-instrument bullshit in the dust for full range oscs? i mean i can understand 'string synth' thats at least trying to model something physically, timbrally, objectively. but whats with this range sensitive, determinist synth s**t?

no surprise, some of the best synths are well rounded bass and lead machines. at least like the odyssey's name i implores you to explore. not demanding of you with BASS SYNTH on the front and octave blocking you.....

I'm not an expert, but I understand that the limited oscillator range of the Taurus synthesizers has something to do with the details in the oscillator circuitry. As far as I understand, the awesome Taurus bass sound would not be possible with full range oscillators. So there's the trade-off there. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.
Comparison is the thief of joy.

Moog's not calling this a "bass synth" and it does the usual 16-2' range, so there's no limitations there.

Who knows. If chopping off the keyboard took the slim phatty down about $550 anything is possible...

As others have mentioned, I'm also not a fan of the shape. I don't get it. I actually think it would far more novel and practical to have it fold down like the MM. That would make buying a case for it sooo much easier.
bonne chance

Wow, looking good.

Looks like they filled in some holes in the phatty sound engine (noise and such). Can't wait to give on a test drive.
