Too much bottom end would muddy the sound.  I've often considered adding a Moog Minitaur; it would be an obvious addition.  But I don't think the Moog sound would suit this type of bass performance; it would lose the clarity this sort of music needs.

The Minitaur's whole thing is bass clarity. It shakes the earth but you can always identify the pitch. It has one job, and is amazing at it.

The problem is, I'm often playing eighth and sixteenth notes way down in the lower registers, using even the 32' range, and with a substantial amount of reverb.  Plus, I need the ability to play two notes at once in the bass - often doubling the octaves, but sometimes adding the upper fifth.  You could be right and I could be wrong, but it seems to me the typical Moog bass sound could make a mess of such dense and busy pedal work.  So, I've played it safe and not tried the Minitaur.

Additional reasons I've not used the Moog are its mere two oscillators and lack of pulse widths and, therefore, PWM.  The Evolver Desktop is excellent for pedalboard bass, and so, too, would be the Prophet '08 Module.

This is all PEK, including what sounds like a voice say "yes' during the last minute.  Bass drum and shaker are Korg EMX.

Oh, your poor, sad, and neglected Poly Evolver Keyboard.  She still sounds great, even as she's been P12-ed.

The PEK is excellent at producing patches that sound like a combination of strummed and plucked instruments.  The effect is very sensitive to how you play the keyboard.  This patch has a touch of that quality.

Well you're almost right Sacred synthesis about my PEK getting "P12'ed",  as it's not just my loved PEK, but also each of my other synths now sharing that fate ;)     

In all seriousness, I could become obsessed with the P12, but I do need to find a regiment now with it now being part of my set up.  It'd would too be easy to want to drive the Ferarri all the time, but as a reality check I think my other gear will always be part of the daily drivers.  The idea being, that even with the DSI gear that I own, the differences and merits of each, validates the use of variation.

Here's my latest recording using my PEK and PER along with some other friends.

I really love this spongy and resonant patch.

I can't find any information on the piece or composer, but it's a lovely tune that my mum used to play on piano as a young girl. I recorded this for her birthday, and then made a video for it. I hope you enjoy.

Excellent.  And yes, it is a nice juicy sort of patch, yet it still has clarity.

I think the Poly Evolver Keyboard is exceedingly photogenic.  Gorgeous!

Thanks Sacred Synthesis and Soundquest. This one is probably the most 'normal' music I've made with the PolyEvolver! I'll be posting some more soon.
