Hello everyone, I have always been a huge fan of synths and as much as i make do with software solutions and VSTs I am all about hardware. I have been wanting to buy a Moog Minitaur and make it part of my writing, recording, and live process with my band. My question is I own many effects pedals that can get me into textural and timbral synth territory with of course several limitations but they do great. I normally use a Meris Enzo, Meris Ottobit Jr. EH Micro Synth (old version) MXR BOD, Iron Ether Subterranea, Crowther Audio Prunes and Custard, Source Audio Manta Filter. So combining some and setting up other to mimic certain synth sounds and adding modulation works, but tracking isnt that all great (especially when using my 5 strings active bass) and the downside is that i have to keep track of all the pedals i am using the chain and the settings not to mention the size of a required pedal board and the routing. My question is my band is currently composing and laying down guides for our album, would a minitaur be better suited for now and for the long run (with live performances) or do i already have everything i need in that sonic territory? on a side note, its either a minitaur or i use the money to start a parts jazz bass build (i have a P and a 5 strings and id like to add a J style instrument) thanks.
