By Mike MartinIt is so easy to be inspired by the Minimoog. Such as classic design and sound that is still sought after today. While being a digital synthesizer, the XW-series can do a pretty remarkable job of mimicking those classic Moog sounds. The Minimoog had 3 oscillators plus a noise generator and although the XW has a 4th oscillator in its Solo Synth engine - all of these sounds were crafted with the original in mind. A set of 10 Leads and basses, the specialties of the Minimoog. Separate versions above for the XW-P1 and XW-G1.
Note that by design, some of the bass sounds will only function in the bottom three octaves of the keyboard.

LOWER LISTENING LEVEL
By Mike MartinUsing the Solo Synth and it's clocking envelope feature, here is a tempo synced bass sound that works nicely for EDM. Note: This sound is designed to be used with the Step Sequencer running.
