Moog Music Sub Phatty Analog Synthesizer

The Moog Sub Phatty has the soul and hands-on control of a vintage Moog synthesizer in an aggressive sound design machine. It has 25 keys, 31 knobs, and 13 switches that connect you directly to the analog heart of this powerful instrument.

Its oscillators have been designed to perform with unmatched clarity, and accuracy in any environment with no warm-up time necessary. They are fat, punchy and loaded with harmonic content.

A Multidrive circuit in the filter section totally transforms the sound of this analog synthesizer into a screaming beast. Create gritty attack, asymmetrical distortion, and saturated hard-clipping sounds that tear through the densest mix.

The mixer section houses a powerful square wave sub oscillator designed to add depth, thickness, and side splitting bass to any sound. In addition to this, a specially voiced noise generator has been incorporated for sculpting hard hitting, all analog percussion sounds and other sound effects.

The Sub Phatty joins the Moog arsenal with a boldly unique voice. Its engaging and dynamic interface fuses a connection between man and machine that opens the door to unprecedented sonic exploration.

I've never been a synth player, but I've always loved the sound of Moogs, and man, this is that sound. this just has loads and loads of *that sound*. as far as features go, it lacks a sequencer that most others seem to have. in fact, I'd originally considered the Mother because of that. but ultimately I decided wanted to play it, not program it and twist knobs. and for me this role is filled perfectly well with just a looper pedal, which can do overdubs too. so while it lacks a sequencer, I don't feel like I miss it. as for the lack of an arppegiator, it does have a setting on the source dial that is a randomized wave form which you can adjust the rate of, and can be dialed in to serve that function rather nicely. the build quality is excellent. metal and durable plastics, with easy to hold rubberized side surfaces. the keys are nicely weighted and responsive. ease of use is kind of a tricky question, because one of the reasons you get something like this is that you want something that's complicated to use. part of the fun is figuring out this byzantine mess of knobs. but for something that's supposed to be difficult to use, it's pretty easy to use. the presets are useful and varied, the manual explains a lot (yet still leaves much mystery), and it's a blast experimenting with it's various settings and functions. as for value, it's pretty good. there's a lot of other analog synths I looked at in the four-to-eight hundred price range that I looked at, and they all have different read more qualities and things the others don't, approach the matter in different ways. but this one really just fit all the things I was looking for, and I'm glad I chose this over all the others, and a very good value for the money. as for wow factor... it's a Moog. easily the most iconic brand of the industry. what more do you need? that's better than any arrangement of flashing lights to inspire wows!
