It doesn't, unless you're just looking for sinewave subbass, and the subosc does a great job there. It might be the S-P filter, or maybe the osc design, but the saw/pulse/tri sound much much better in the upper lows, lowmids, mids.
It's not a replacement for a Moog. To me it's more of a beast on it's own, something NO ONE else has offered yet, and I love it's character. It's good a few very nice sweet spots, it's aggressive in a way newer analogs haven't been lately, it's not polite very often, but you can calm it down. The osc shaping tools are insanely cool for an analog you can pick up for WAY under $1k.
To the OP: I think a Minitaur would be a fantastic companion. My Slim Phatty has been working very well in tandem with it so far to fill in the gaps. SEM does a bang up job too. I'm sure the Moog clone Boomstar will get the job done too when that comes out.
