I'm not sure people's written opinions are going to be more valid than online demos (where you can hear it).
I'm a Minitaur owner and I like the sound for all kinds of stuff, but I'm not terribly thrilled by the near requirement to use a USB connected computer to do some of the edits or preset management. I don't even want
presets, but there are some key parameters that are global which I like to modify, and as it stands I can't even see what their values are without connecting my laptop.
I don t want to pay for a synth just to realize can't do bass better than say my Evolver, Virus or Revolution.
I think all three of those can do decent bass, but where the Minitaur shines is how full the bass is. It feels like it consumes the entire bass range below 60Hz if you let it. It's massive.
I am looking especialy for plucked bass sounds like the ones on the full on psy trance, so I don't care if it growls with the filter decay and sustain open as it will be closed in the plucky type of bass that I am interested.
Huh. For plucked bass I would probably look for something FM based. Have you looked at PreenFM or one of the many Yamaha FM synths?
