  1. i'm probably going against the grain here, but the new one sounds much better IMO. broader frequency range.

  4. It would be easier to get the T3 to song like the T1, versus the other way around. Not to mention the new features in the T3 are worth the price of admission. I just wish I felt comfortable playing an instrument with my feet. πŸ˜‰

  5. The update sounds thicker, and richer, but the original definitely has a sinister curl to the sound. I'd go for the original, but then, i do have a sinister streak.

  6. Have to agree with you on that.

    The original Moog Taurus sounds dull and less cutting. The new Taurus might not fit into a mix as well, though, because of this.

  9. It is the same difference between Voyager and Model D… analog, Moog but different machines.
    Note that I've had Model D and now i've got both Voyager and Taurus III. I've never had Taurus II.
