This panel has been designed to work with the Minitaur which is a compact and powerful analogue bass synthesizer created, produced and sold by Moog Music Inc. This panel will allow the user to have access to this powerful synthesizer as a VST/AU enabling the user access within programs such as Ableton Live and Logic Pro using full automation.
This panel is still in development and I look forward to any comments, suggestions and recommendations. The purpose of this project is to allow my son access to this device using full automation in the aforementioned programs. I have been developing and testing as a standalone panel and am ready for some initial testing and feedback on the panel.
The controls on the first tab (Minitaur Editor) use a vertical drag to alter them and they show a bubble with the value. The second tab (Under the Hood) uses a rotary drag to move the knobs. This screen will also allow one to position the knob at the point where they click on the knob, eliminating some of the need to drag. The third tab (Miscellaneous) uses a horizontal drag. Both tabs 2 and 3 do not show the bubble when dragging. All three tabs allow the user to double click to set value back to Default as specified in the Minitaur manuals and documentation.
Please feel free to test and provide feedback on anything. Currently, avoid using the Erase Firmware and Save Firmware functionality on the Miscellaneous tab. Those setting may require physically putting the |Minitaur in a special mode, so avoid those at this time. On that tab is the Set All Defaults button. This button may be useful if settings go astray.
When using some of the settings it may be necessary to either Send Snapshot or Receive Snapshot depending on where the change was made. Once Set All Defaults is performed one may want to hit the FW VERSION GET button and watch the firmware version on the screen get updated. Also, the FW VERSION DISPLAY has your Minitaur show its display by flashing the Oscillator button LEDs.
The Refresh button on the Under the Hood tab will update you MIDI settings so one may also select and make changes from those LED style list boxes. I also have not tested anything on the Hardware/Calibration page. Use that at your own risk and really only if you know what you are doing.
All the Presets buttons work now. The Save Local Preset function is identical to functionality on Moog’s Minitaur Editor, except for a slight difference in two of the settings. Those settings are:Glide Type and LFO Clock. Work is still being done to better the functionality on this tab but it is now fully functional needing some User Interface improvements as well as perhaps correcting the aforementioned difference.
