Think you’ve heard synth bass?
Just wait until 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-gradebottom end. Combine the Sub Oscillator, the Sub Phatty’s two main oscillators, and a noise generator. There’ll be almost no limit to the mayhem you can unleash, although the Sub Phatty isn’t just for crafting immense basses. This little synth is a Moog after all, so it naturally excels at snarling and aggressive leads. Great sound is a part of its DNA.
Deploy your secret weapon: Multidrive
The Moog Sub Phatty’s mixer section is designed so the oscillator level controls pass unity gain at noon. Beyond that, you’re overdriving the input of the filter for some classic minimoog-flavored distortion. But here’s where it gets really interesting. Built into the filter section, the Multidrive circuit gives you control over rich and powerful post-filter overdrive. According to synth lore, part of the 1971 Minimoog Model D’s sonic moxie stemmed from a filter that was overdriven by somewhere in the vicinity of 10dB to 15dB. Moreover, you could dime the distortion 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 all this and more. The Sub Phatty lets you dial up everything from gnarly, classic grit to sizzling, modern distortion. Go for it.
The legendary Ladder Filter and impressive knobularity
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; standalone Ladder Filters have been a studio favorite for decades. The Sub Phatty’s ladder lets you dial in your optimal filter cutoff frequency and tweak the resonance to create those classic fat ‘n’ punchy Moog sounds.
Want to modulate your filter resonance? Of course you do! The Moog Sub Phatty’s onboard LFO lets you modulate without commandeering 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-in to the Sub Phatty’s external input and process your axe for some serious fun. 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!
