Product Description

Real Moog sound now fits your back pack and your budget. The Moog Slim Phatty's 100% analog signal path, intuitive user interface, rugged construction and rich MIDI, USB and Control Voltage functionality make it a must-have for producers, touring musicians and DJs.

At just 17" wide, it goes where no other Moog has gone before. Earth-shaking basses, scorching leads and more are now housed in a high-quality instrument ideal for laptop artists and space conscious musical road warriors.

Features

- The most portable Moog synth
- 100% analog audio path
- Arpeggiator and LFO sync to MIDI & Tap Tempo
- USB, MIDI & control voltage connectivity
- External audio processing
- Earth-shaking basses, scorching leads & sonic infinity

Based on the powerful Little Phatty sound engine, the Slim Phatty is the descendant of the iconic Minimoog Model D and features the classic Moog Ladder Filter, the touchstone of analog sound design.

In addition to shaping the sound of its on-board oscillators, the Slim Phatty's filter is a valuable production tool that can be used to process external audio, sweetening your favorite audio source with everything from smooth analog warmth through wet, resonant filter sweeps.

The Slim Phatty's convenient size makes it an ideal voice expander for your existing gear, with two oscillators of massive Moog sound that are always just a MIDI cable away. An upgraded tuning scale feature and editor allows easy exploration of alternate scales and tunings. Microtonal, just intonation, quarter-tone, world music scales and more make the Slim Phatty an international traveler. Good thing it has a universal power supply!

In addition to the world of MIDI and USB gear, the Slim Phatty's Control Voltage inputs give it unlimited realms of expression and sound design possibilities. "Modular synth" style patching with Moogerfooger effects processors, the CP-251 Control Voltage Processor and other Moog synths (even The Moog Guitar!) creates soundscapes previously available only on large modular systems. Connecting to the Etherwave Plus Control Voltage Theremin or the MP-201 Multi-Pedal adds unique and intuitive new modes of expression.

"You are missing out if don't get one."
Sound: As analog as it gets today Awsome bass sounds...I mean really...KILLER!!! Easy to use, sturdy construction, VERY fun to play with. great for LFO soundscapes, run it through a roland space echo!!! A few minor issues to deal with. As with all analog synths, let it warm up for a few minutes. Sometimes the OSC section and Filter go crazy and invert/sustain forever, cycle the power and the problem is solved. Can't say I'm crazy about the USB/software, I never could get it to work. Feature: Pretty bare bones in this department ADSR Env Generators Filter section (cutoff, res, KB, EG, OL) 2 Osc (4 oct, wave, level, freq, glide, 1-2 sync) modulation (LFO 4 waves filt env, osc 2) plus destination control (filter, pitch, wave, osc2) ARP, cv gates, midi in out/usb in out Ease of Use: super easy Quality: built like a tank Value: Compared to the "analog" synths out there today, this the only one worth buying. I love DSI, but there is no comparison. Manufacturer Support: Great I guess, never needed it Overall: I will have this for years. My next purchase would probably be another Slim Phatty...it sounds awsome poly chained!
Style of Music: Ambient/experimental

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Memories and Dreams"
Overall: In early 70's, my older sister took me to meet a friend of hers, a guy whose living room contained more than a couple synthesizers. It was a dazzling experience, though the memory faded over time. I was just a little too young for what was being shown to me. Nearly 40 years later, I'm looking at a video on youtube - a demo of the unfortunately named Slim Phatty - when quite suddenly, the image of a hand turning a dial returns me to that memory and I realize that the synths in that guy's living room were Moogs. Since Moogs were always infinitely beyond my budget, I had put the idea of ever owning one right out of my head. Thanks to Moog Music and Zzounds, I now own my first Moog. And wow; it's a powerful, versatile and extraordinary instrument. Incredibly fun, too. The sounds and filters and - well, there's already tons of tech reviews and demos out there, and I suggest digesting as much of it as you can. Listen to the sounds and watch all the videos and choose wisely, grasshopper. It's still not cheap, but what price can be put on the resurrection of a cherished childhood memory, and the fulfillment of a dream? On a deeply personal level, I could not be more satisfied with the product, or the folks at Zzounds and their consistently friendly and professional service.
Style of Music: Cross-genre electronic/electric/acoustic weirdness. Or something.
