    I have a set of moog Taurus 3 Bass Pedals that I use for home studio recording (direct to audio interface) that I want to start using in a live setting. Venue size is small to medium and the music is instrumental (ambient/prog) and no PA. For home live I use powered monitors and a sub. I know I need some sort of PA-type system but am getting confused by all of the choices out there. Any experience/recommendations would be really appreciated.

    You should be able to route the audio out of the Taurus pedals to a bass amp.

    I don't have Taurus pedals, but I use Roland PK-5A MIDI'ed to a Roland Juno-G. For live performances, I route the audio output from the Juno-G to a bass amp. I have a SansAmp RPM preamp in my rack and I use the second channel of my power amp, then route to a bass cab. Works for me.

    The bass player in the band I do sound for has one, he doesn't bring it to every show. When he does he plays his bass through the Mesa Walkabout Scout, and the Moog through a Mesa 2x12 pushed with a Mesa Mpulse 600 watt head. It sounds pretty badass.

    You know, I'm thinking that a Little Mark III and 2 X 12 cab might do the trick. I was approaching this as a PA issue and didn't even consider the Amp route. Hmmmm. Do you think the Mark would work?
