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-)

You forgot

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.

Yes that's correct.

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.

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.
