Moog Taurus Pedal Synthesizer
Information from
Moog Literature

From a 1980 Moog Flyer

The Moog Taurus Pedal Synthesizer lets you make music with your feet while your hands are busy playing keyboard, guitar, or drums. The Taurus has three programmed voices and a voice that you can program completely In performance you can select a Moog voice or your voice instantly The Taurus is a variable synthesizer that features two audio oscillators to create phasing effects, parallel intervals, and rich percussion sounds. In addition, functions like glide, decay and pedalboard octave may be switched by foot during performance. And its five octave range makes Taurus more than a bass instrument. Add another dimension to your control over sound—add a Moog Taurus 1 pedal synthesizer.

Three pre-programmed synthesizer voices: Bass, Tuba, and Taurus
• One fully programmable voice. You create the sound and pre-set it yourself.
• Five octave range—16' 8' 4' 2' and 1'
• Foot sliders for loudness and tone color variation.
• Ultra stable oscillator design: less than one cent (0.06%) short term drift, less than two cents (0.18%) long term drift.
• Electronic preset selectors. Presets never have to be cancelled.
