The Moog Music story begins in 1954, when a young Bob Moog began building theremins, one of the oldest electronic instruments, and the only one known that you play without touching, in his basement with his father. For the uninitiated, the theremin is a single oscillator instrument that uses two metal rod antennas to control pitch and amplitude. The left antenna (a horizontal hoop) reduces the amplitude as the left hand is moved closer to it, while the right antenna (a vertical pole) increases the pitch as the right hand is moved towards it.
“The Little Phatty is a true analog monosynth in every sense: it's a monophonic, monotimbral, monaural subtractive synthesizer with analog circuitry throughout. Ideal for beginners and pros alike, the LP puts every parameter right at your fingertips…
Any synthesist who relies entirely on software or all-digital instruments is missing an essential color from his or her timbral palette, and the Little Phatty fills that gap...” Electronic Musician, 2007
Minitaur is a compact and powerful analog bass synthesizer that features a classic one knob per function design. It packs legendary analog Moog bass into a package designed to fit seamlessly into today's performance and production environments.
The new Moog Taurus 3 Bass Pedals faithfully recreate the sound of the legendary Taurus I. We started with an in-depth analysis of the original circuitry, and then added modern amenities like MIDI and USB. We didn’t stop until we had created a work of art that can knock down a small building. If you're serious about bass, take the next step up to the ultimate bass synthesizer: Taurus 3 Bass Pedals.
