Moog Pedals

Post by Moog Taurus » Sun May 14, 2006 5:32 am

Hi , I have just received my copy of the live at Belmont DVD .
What a great gig this must have been to see and hear in the flesh.
The quality of the DVD is very good indeed and sounds great in 5.1 Dolby surround even though I could not detect any sound being sent to the LFE speakers I have .
Having said that I m not sure that it's required given the quality of the mix to the other five channels.
Any way to my question on instruments , has Steve retired the Taurus pedals to the attic ?
I noticed on the above mentioned DVD that he was not using them and it appears that Fred may be playing some of the Taurus fills with his right hand , can you confim this

P.S. Great music rom you guys , long may it continue.

There are some left handed keyboard moments and some octave effects on the bass. I'd love to bring the Taurus pedals along for a show, but they're very old and only work well on occasion. I've had them repaired and checked, but the last tech that worked on them said they were beyond hope. Before they gave out though, Fred and I sampled every note with different decay lengths. You'll still hear them on upcoming albums - their spirit lives on!!!

So is it the pedalboard's tone that is most appealing to you, more than being able to play two instruments at once and create a bigger sound onstage? I'm sure you've considered the option of hooking up a MIDI bass pedalboard (Korg's MPK-130 or similar) to a sampler

Yes, I've thought of midi options. But with GH only doing 1 show a year - I'd rather put the funds to better use :)

I swear, that statement reminds me of someone talking about a deceased relative, or a guy talking about his first hot rod. What's next--a picture of the pedalboard stuffed and mounted over the fireplace? Or a story of its decent burial? :lol: :lol:

Today I checked out the studio gear section of the site and it notes that the band have two sets of Taurus pedals , is this still true or is it a little out of date.

Just one set now that only works now and then. Walter's pedals were destroyed at NEARfest :cry:
