Moog Sub Phatty
Introducing the new Sub Phatty Synthesizer--the perfect blend of analog sound and hands-on control of a classic Moog synth, in a completely new, aggressive, sound design machine!
Think you've heard synth bass?
Just wait till the first time you deploy the Moog Sub Phatty's Sub Oscillator. Imagine having a sound generator designed to do one thing: punish your woofers. We're talking weapons-grade bottom end. Combine the Sub Oscillator with the Sub Phatty's two main oscillators and noise generator, and there's almost no limit to the mayhem you can unleash. But the Sub Phatty isn't just for crafting immense basses. This little synth is a Moog, after all, so it naturally excels at snarling, agressive leads. Great sound is part of its DNA.
Deploy your secret weapon: Multidrive
In addition to the Sub Oscillator, the Moog Sub Phatty is packing another secret weapon: Multidrive. Built into the filter section, the Multidrive circuit drives (or enthusiastically overdrives, depending on how you set it) the filter, for rich and powerful effects. According to synth lore, a goodly part of the 1971 Minimoog Model D's sonic moxie stemmed from the fact that the filter was overdriven by somewhere in the vicinity of 10-15dB. Further, you could dime the overdrive by patching the Mini's high-level output back into its external input. Who said guitarists have all the fun? The good news is that with the Sub Phatty, you no longer have to stand on your head to do this. The variable, pre/post-filter Multidrive lets you dial up everything from gnarly, classic grit to sizzling modern distortion. Go for it.
The Legendary Ladder Filter onboard
Without a doubt, Moog is one of the most inspiring names in synthesizer history, and it's all because of Moog's superior circuit designs. One of the keys to the Moog sound was Bob Moog's original ladder filter, and standalone ladder filters have been studio favorites for decades. The Sub Phatty's ladder lets you dial in your optimal filter cutoff frequency and tweak the resonance to create classic fat 'n' punchy Moog sounds.
Modulation madness, and knobs galore
Want to modulate your filter resonance? Of course you do! The Moog Sub Phatty's onboard LFO lets you modulate without having to commandeer one of your sound generating oscillators (as on vintage Minimoogs). Get creative with key-synched filter sweeps and more, for delectable, swirlicious sounds that will enhance your productions with authentic Moog analog goodness. Are you a guitarist? Plug into the Sub Phatty's external input and process your axe for some serious fun. And to give you real-time control over all this sonic firepower, the Sub Phatty is packing 31 knobs and 13 switches on its petite frame. There's a world of creativity waiting for you in the Moog Sub Phatty!
Sub Phatty plays nice with your other gear
The Moog Sub Phatty sports control voltage and keyboard gate inputs that allow you to connect your new Moog with your vintage (or any other) gear that has CV/gate connectivity. Sub Phatty sports Filter CV, Pitch CV, and Volume CV, as well as Keyboard Gate connections, putting you firmly in the control seat. And of course, you get MIDI DIN In and Out, as well as MIDI over USB for communication with your DAW.
