The weirdest thing has happened since getting the Minitaur.
Over the last few days I've been "On a mission"
For some reason the Minitaur has made me get all creative and go back to basics and have fun.
Ive been firing it through pedals guitar amps,fx and out then back in,throwing multiband gates side chained from drum loops and all sorts.
But its also made me go right back to basics with things like Omnisphere. Hitting INIT patch and starting from scratch. Watching the proper tutorials on the filters and envelopes epecially the mod envelopes
Especially great is it made me properly map my impulse keyboard via automap to Omnisphere to have proper hands on control which has made a HUGE difference.
Its made me realise how much having knobs and spending more time on understanding how sound is made and then pushing it as far as you can is so hard to do quickly with a mouse and VSTS.
Ive had loads of synths over the years but its like the simplicity of the moog has made me open my eyes properly and given me an understanding of synthesis. Its not like i didn't know what i was doing its more i was doing it without taking proper notice and having a half understanding of what i was doing.
It is a bit of a 1 trick pony, it is buggy with its USB on (my) system, but it sounds awesome and is so much fun to twiddle. If it broke tomorrow and was a door stop its the best £400 ive spent just for one of those very elusive dont happen very often DING DONG moments.
I also wish id not sold everything so much now, but as they say "you need to go there to come back".
Now to look at going modular on GOOGLE
