In our last piece of exclusive content on the Moog Minitaur and Moog Moogerfooger pedals, Amos showed off how to integrate multiple analog synthesizers into your performance or production. This time Amos shows off the control voltage functionality on the Moogerfooger pedals. For those of you already familiar with control voltage and its applicable uses, you can watch the video to see how Amos uses CV with the Moogerfooger pedals. For those of you unfamiliar with control voltage, here is a brief explanation:
Control Voltage Explained
Voltage is the measurement of how much power is passing through a circuit. Control voltage is typically used to control the pitch or the parameters of an analog synthesizer. This varies in application based on the type of electronic device you are using. For example when voltage is increased on an amplifier it increases the volume. Control voltage for analog synthesizers is used to control the …

File this one under: I begged and begged and cried and sighed and pleaded and finally it happened. This is the second part of my NAMM analog love triangle. Moog have struck gold with the MiniTaur. As the name suggests, this is a desktop analog module based on the original Taurus synthesizer. If you don’t know, the Taurus was actually a floor based bass synth that allowed players to play amazing bass sounds by foot while still performing with their other instrument of choice. That said, the standards are high for this little wonder- and it doesn’t disappoint.
Unlike some desktop synths, this one sticks to a “one function per button” mantra. Built with a simple two oscillator layout, the MiniTaur offers an oscillator mixer that allows you to use different combinations of square and sawtooth waves to blend classic Moog bass sounds. A robust mod matrix offers LFO Rate, …
