Sure there were the Mini solos (pop as well as the Chick Coreas and Jan
Hammers of the world), but a big influence on me was the Mini bass sound.
Funkadelic, Gary Wright (his non-hit stuff), and others got great meaty bass
sounds out of the MiniMoog ages ago (before everyone sampled these same
sounds and used them again). Another interesting sound was Roger Troutman
who was known for using his MiniMoog through a Heil talkbox. Everyone
thought it was a vocoder, but it was much simpler than that.
