Sorry, this is totally OT, but this thread reminded me of a bizarre dream I had the other night... I was at a flea market, and I stumbled across a "Moog" emblazoned back plate... Thought "this is cool", then started rummaging through the bits of electronic equipment that were there, and realized it was part of a Taurus setup... in pieces, but apparently working... hmmm..

Anyways, considering I've never touched or used a Taurus, I thought this was funny... or just weird.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Hehe, considering the awesomeness of the original Taurus I'm not surprised, it weaves it's spells around us all :D

Anyway, I picked up the Novation Basstation yesterday. It was a racked version which was even better, not only for the added functionality. I had 1 unit open in my bass amplifier rack, and it fits like a glove.

Soundwise I'm totally happy. I spent a couple of hours in my rehearsal studio yesterday trying it out hooked up to an oversized PA rig, and that little beast kicks a nasty bottom punch. I left the studio with bass-induced heart arythmia, and couldn't be happier :lol:
