All About That Moog
The Moog Sub Phatty is a two-oscillator analog synthesizer that's true to the style of vintage Moog synths -- with all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a Moog, and a few modern twists. It's got 25 keys, 31 knobs, and 13 switches, giving the player hands-on access to articulate sound-shaping capabilities. With two oscillators plus the Sub bass oscillator, an LFO, a noise generator, the Moog Ladder Filter, and Moog's new Multidrive circuit for distortion, this compact Moog monosynth makes it fun to hone in on the sound you're looking for. And once you've dialed in that awesome lead or synth-bass sound, you can save your favorite settings in 16 slots.
Moog Multidrive: Overdrive Your Synth
The Moog Sub Phatty is also the first synthesizer to feature Moog's Multidrive section, which adds warm overdrive when set to low, and turns the Sub Phatty into a screaming machine when dialed up. To build a gritty, harmonic-soaked synth sound, start by pushing your oscillator level controls past noon to begin overdriving the input of the filter section. Then, grab the Multidrive knob to dial in more overdrive, post-filter.
Sub Phatty for Sub-Bass
This little synth gets its name from the Sub oscillator found in the mixer section, which adds a square wave one octave below the primary oscillator to add some womp to your waves or build bassy percussive sounds. Between the Sub Phatty's two main oscillators, the noise generator, and the Sub osc, you have a seriously heavy toolbox for creating massive basses and cutting leads.
Analog Music Production Machine
A Moog is not just a synthesizer -- it's an analog music production machine. Whether you're looking to create luscious melodies and harmonies, deep basslines, or psychedelic synthetic percussive sounds, this synth can do it all. With a 25-key layout and total control of the internal analog engine, the Sub Phatty can cover a broad range of music styles, from classic rock to modern pop to industrial. And with 5-pin DIN MIDI I/O as well as USB MIDI, the Moog Sub Phatty is ready to integrate into your DAW rig.

If you're browsing analog synthesizers, then there's a good chance you're already familiar with Moog Music, and the pioneering role the company has played in the analog synthesizer marketplace since the 1960s. The 25-key Moog Sub Phatty continues the tradition, and is a great tool for dialing up phatty waveforms in any music production studio.
