Moog Minitaur

Moog Minitaur panel

Created by Stoner at Moogasm

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.

DEMO – Rendering


Rendering demo for Ctrlr. How to draw stuff yourself and how to deal with all that LUA stuff.

This demo shows most cool capabilities that gives you LUA in Ctrlr. It’s a copy of the JuceDemo program you can find on the JUCE website.

It’s important to note that this demo needs the latest nightly to work, it uses the latest codebase of Ctrlr, so don’t expect it work with the stable build.

The list of demos is (08.02.2013):

  • Paths solid (not working yet)
  • Paths linear gradient (not working yet)
  • Paths radial gradient (not working yet)
  • Paths stroked – shows how to draw Patgs and how the Stroke impacts the overall look of a path
  • Images RGB – the 4 demos show how to load Images from resources and use them, the RGB/ARGB impacts performance
  • Images ARGB
  • Tiled images RGB
  • Tiled images ARGB
  • Glyphs – This is a simple TEXT demo i uses Glyphs (the basic building block of a Font) to draw a simple text
  • SVG – SVG is a Vector Image format (it really is a XML file), this demo also shows how to use ZIP files and render SVG images
  • Lines – Figure it out 🙂

DSI Mopho

This is the version 1.13 for MOPHO

It just means it’s the old panel saved in the latest nightly of Ctrlr. Still no program dumps but i never got around to doing this. Maybe if you keep pushing i’ll do it (it’s really simple now).
