Moog has unveiled Sirin, the latest addition to its Taurus family of bass synthesisers.
Unlike its brethren, though, Sirin is designed to generate pitches far above middle C, extending all the way up to D8. In terms of build, the synth features a compact form that resembles its close cousin, the Moog Minitaur. The retro colour palette of its brushed stainless steel enclosure adds a nice touch.
Sirin connects directly to any MIDI-note controller for a powerful analogue experience, or if you prefer, a computer via USB. The latter opens up avenues for deeper sound design through the synth’s dedicated Editor/Librarian Software – free for PC and Mac – which allows tweaking of all types of parameters, loading of up to 128 presets and more.
As you would’ve probably guessed, Sirin is capable of both melodic leads as well as Moog’s quintessential bass sounds. Its fully recallable analogue sound engine is courtesy of two analogue Taurus Bass oscillators which, as aforementioned, have been designed for octaves that surpass the limitations of the other synths in its family.
Sirin’s sound is also shaped by a classic Moog Ladder filter that works in tandem with two ADSR envelopes and a multi-wave LFO.
