Moog Taurus 3 Bass Synthesizer Pedals Limited Edition, no longer available Original owner SN#15. Never gigged. Gently used indoors & kept in a plastic cover when not used. Like new. Specs: Performance Interface 13-note velocity sensitive bass pedals 1 Volume Footwheel Controller with optical mechanism 1 Programmable Footwheel Controller with optical mechanism 9 Footswitches for selecting Bank and Presets, Transpose, Glide On/Off, Decay On/Off, and Octave Up/Down Synthesizer Sound Engine 100% Analog Audio signal path based entirely on the highly acclaimed Taurus I synthesizer circuits 2 x VCOs (Voltage Controlled Oscillators) with sawtooth waveform outputs 1 x VCF (Voltage Controlled Filter) with 24dB/Octave Lowpass Filter with the classic Moog Ladder Filter topology. 20Hz-20KHz Frequency Response 1 x VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) Synthesizer Modifiers 1 ASD (Attack-Sustain-Decay) VCA Envelope 1 AD (Attack-Sustain-Decay) VCF Envelope 1 x LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) with Triangle, Square, Sawtooth, and Ramp waveforms with adjustable amounts to the VCOs and VCF. The LFO is syncable to MIDI Clock or Tap Tempo 1 x Arpeggiator with Latch Mode for generating recurring musical patterns from Bass Pedal Input. The Arpeggiator is syncable to MIDI Clock or Tap Tempo Programming Interface 52 Presets total in non-volatile memory consisting of one bank of 4 factory presets, and 12 banks of 4 user-programmable presets Preset selection can be performed with the Value knob, or the combination of Bank footswitch, Bass Pedal, and Preset footswitch Factory Presets include the classic Taurus, Bass, and Tuba presets, plus the new Taurus III preset Two selectable levels of LED illuminated switches access the classic Taurus parameters or the Taurus 3 LFO and Arpeggiator parameters for editing with the Control Footwheel or the Value Knob 15-segment LED bargraph displays the value of the currently selected parameter Classic Taurus Parameters in the OSCILLATOR section B.FREQ: Oscillator B Frequency coarse offset to Oscillator A BEAT: Oscillator B Frequency fine offset to Oscillator A GLIDE: Glide Rate OCTAVE: Low, Medium or High MIX: sets the loudness ratio between Oscillators A and B ATTACK: sets the Rise time for the VCA Envelope Generator when a note is played SUSTAIN: sets the maximum level for the VCA Envelope Generator when a note is held DECAY: sets the fall time for the VCA Envelope Generator when a note is released Classic Taurus Parameters in the FILTER section CUTOFF: sets the lowpass filter cutoff frequency RESONANCE: sets the amount of signal fed from the output to the input of the lowpass filter. Can be set for filter self-oscillation ATTACK: sets the Rise time for the VCF Envelope Generator when a note is played DECAY: sets the fall time for the VCF Envelope Generator when a note is released AMOUNT: sets how much the VCF cutoff frequency is modified by the VCF Envelope Generator signal Taurus 3 Parameters in the LFO Section SQUARE: Radio button type switch selects the LFO square waveform TRIANGLE: Radio button type switch selects the LFO triangle waveform RAMP: Radio button type switch selects the LFO ramp waveform SAW: Radio button type switch selects the LFO sawtooth waveform RATE: sets the LFO Rate LFO FILTER AMOUNT: sets the amount the LFO modulates the filter cutoff frequency LFO PITCH AMOUNT: sets the amount the LFO modulates the VCOs frequencies LFO SYNC: On/Off switch enables starting the LFO waveform cycle with each note played on the Bass Pedals Taurus 3 Parameters in the ARPEGGIATOR Section PATTERN: sets the pattern of the arpeggiator ORDER: sets the order that the pattern of the arpeggiator is output OCTAVE: sets the number of octaves for the arpeggiator pattern ON/OFF: turns the arpeggiator on or off LATCH: turns the arpeggiator latch function on or off VALUE knob is used for selecting presets or editing parameters PRESET switch toggles between the current stored preset and its edited form MASTER switch selects a menu of Advanced Preset functions, Global settings, and System Utilities CURSOR switch navigates the screen of the LCD User Interface STORE switch initiates the storing of presets Field-upgradeable firmware using MIDI SysEx MIDI Implementation Presets selectable by MIDI Program Change messages Taurus Sound engine can be played by MIDI Note messages Preset parameters controllable by MIDI Control Change (CC) messages Bass pedals transmit MIDI Note On/Note Off messages with user selectable velocity resolution Volume Footwheel transmits MIDI CC 7 (Volume) data Control Footwheel transmits MIDI CC corresponding to selected parameter Presets and Global Settings can be sent or received through MIDI SysEx I/O panel HI-Z Output: output jack outputs the Taurus audio signal from the classic higher impedance Taurus output stage. For use with Bass Amplifier instrument inputs LO-Z Output: output jack outputs the Taurus audio signal from a low impedance output stage. For use with line-level inputs PITCH CV Input: TRS jack accepts expression pedal (such as Moog EP-2) or 0V to +5V Control Voltage inputs for modifying the VCOs frequencies FILTER CV Input: TRS jack accepts expression pedal (such as Moog EP-2) or 0V to +5V Control Voltage inputs for modifying the VCF cutoff frequency VOLUME CV Input: TRS jack accepts expression pedal (such as Moog EP-2) or 0V to +5V Control Voltage inputs for modifying the VCA gain GATE Input: input jack accepts +5V gate signal for triggering the Taurus EGs MIDI In: standard DIN MIDI input connector MIDI Out: standard DIN MIDI output connector USB: bi-directional USB MIDI port Power Inlet: IEC connector accepts 90-250V AC 50-60 Hz Power Switch: turns unit On or Off Chassis Specifications Rugged metal enclosure with steel feet, front panel, structural panels and extruded aluminum back panel Weight: 45lbs Dimensions: 25″ wide X 24″ deep X 8 1/2″ high Includes original owners manual, slight tear in the upper left and power cord. Shipping prices are for shipping in the original Moog Shipping box used to ship it from the Moog factory. I will add extra shipping tape to the box. If you want the box preserved (see pic – 28x28x12), I can have the box with the synth inside packed in a larger box at cost, please request an invoice, I’m sorry I can’t quote what it will cost since there are too many variables but it would be what I pay a shipper to do that. Will work with the buyer and insurance to resolve the issue if the unit arrives damaged or dead. The unit is not returnable if you “changed your mind” or because you “wanted to try it out” or similar scenarios.
