Loopmasters has released Moog Taurus MK 1 – Bass Expander, a sample library featuring the sounds of the Moog Taurus Bass Pedal.
The Moog Taurus bass pedals were released in the mid-’70s to much acclaim…. they hit the spot with the then popular progressive rock bands for adding an extra element to their productions, and the pedals have been used on countless productions ever since.
Despite the synth’s minimal functionality, the sound of the Taurus is legendary… thick and fat with pulsating detuned oscillators and, of course, that famous Moog sound. The actual Taurus preset is a classic – it has a moderately bright attack which decays to a deep, powerful and solid sustain…. it is just about the perfect bass sound for adding weight to any track.
