Moog Knows What You Need to Perform

A stage performer's synth all the way, the Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition is also the first Moog synth in over 30 years that has more than one note of polyphony. Its all analog sound is everything you love about Moog fat bass, smooth leads, and undeniably rich and dimensional sound. With 40 knobs and 74 switches, you have the hands-on control that you need to put some serious expression into your live keyboard performances. Based on the Sub Phatty, one of the most popular synthesizers we've had at Sweetwater, the Sub 37 Tribute Edition is a must-have for serious synthesists.

All-analog synth engine based on the award-winning Sub Phatty

The Sub 37 packs everything that Moog fans love into a compact, gig-ready keyboard. You'll find two oscillators plus a noise generator to set a fat sonic foundation. A classic Moog ladder filter with resonance, MultiDrive, and selectable filter slopes gives you powerful sound-shaping potential. And with a syncable arpeggiator and step sequencer, you have the tools you need to produce evocative electronic music with the Sub 37 Tribute Edition.

The first Moog synth in 30 years with more than one note of polyphony

We hear a lot of questions at Sweetwater about the Duo Mode on the Sub 37 — it's basically a two-note polyphonic mode, meaning each of the two oscillators can play a different note. You can hold a bass drone note while playing a lead over it, play in fifths, and create other interesting musical effects you can't achieve with a monophonic synthesizer.

Extensive hands-on control with 37 keys, 40 knobs, and 74 switches

One look at the Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition tells you it was made to be manipulated. Dedicated controls make it easy to shape your sounds in real time while performing. And the extra-large filter cutoff knob is easy to find with your hands when your eyes are focused elsewhere. Set up an arpeggiated sequence, and you can easily spend hours tweaking knobs and creating new sounds, and you'll never have to dive into menus or remember which button has the shift function you're trying to access.

Just do it

Moog engineers their synthesizers like Germans engineer their expensive luxury cars. This thing is solid. If some comic-book superhero were to pick it up and throw it at you, you would not be a happy person. And neither would I. What's funny is that it's the exact same price as the Minimoog I lusted after so badly in 1973 when I was 13yo: $1499US. Taking into account inflation, the Sub37 should really cost about $7,952.13US. Instead, it's effectively a bit more than 1/5th of the price of the early-70s Minimoog and it's got about 8 times the capability. I've got a Moog Voyager, a Moog Little Phatty Stage II, and now this. And I can tell that this is going to be my favorite for many years to come. If you're like me, you've been going back-and-forth on the question of buying a Sub37: Do I really need another synthesizer? Wow, it looks and sounds great, though. But my wife will kill me. But yeesh, everyone says it's great ... Let me tell you: Just put your order in. Life is short. This is an amazing piece of gear for an amazing price.

The Next Step for Moog then some

I have been using the Sub 37 for few days now and will 100% agree with Mr Fisher, this will be a classic for sure. This takes the Phatty/Sub Phatty engine to a whole new level and beyond. For starters the new ENV section options are amazing, the ability to turn on/off the OSC 1, 2, Sub OSC, Noise, and Feedback/External input on the fly is critical for live work and studio sessions. Same goes for instant Filter Slope selection. Add an extra LFO, aftertouch, and dead-on easy step sequencer make this new Moog sizzle. No software editor to access these critical features = Total thumbs up!

Fantastic Service!

Patrick D. in sales is fantastic. Kept me up-to-date during the entire pre-order process until delivery. This is my third order from Sweetwater and their service is second to none. I will never order from the typical big-box chain stores again. Sweetwater staff seems very professional. I feel they can be trusted and I have no problem ordering large ticket items.

An Instant Classic!

I received my Sub 37 Saturday. Right out of the box, I tested the stock sounds to compare the Sub37 to my other keyboards. As I expected, the Moog cuts through the mix, and fills the low end and high end like none of my other synthesizers. The 2-voice paraphonic and after touch cannot be emphasized enough as to why this synthesizer stands out, as well as every high quality aspect you expect from Moog. Programming original sounds is easy and powerful with this intelligent front panel. This should be the best synthesizer of 2014 in my opinion! Thank you Moog & Sweetwater!

Sweetwater Advice

Carson McClain

Because of its unique sound scultping capabilities, the Moog Sub 37 is far more usable than any other Moog synth I've owned or used. I prefer synths that can achieve full-on, brutal, destructive, vicious, and down right evil sounds, with the twists of a few knobs. This synth can do that - I'm talking mean! The other thing I love is that I can still get classic Moog bass sounds out of it, and I can save my sounds to easily recallable presets.

Daniel Fisher

Historically, many of the the most iconic synthesizers actually fell out of favor and only became legendary years later when they were rediscovered. The Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition, however, became a legend before it was released, and it's more than lived up to our expectations. Incorporating countless feature requests from longtime Moog players, the Sub 37 includes many powerful functions. I'm talking about looping filter and amp envelopes with the Sub Phatty's DAHDSR controls, variable-waveform LFOs, a multimode arpeggiator, step sequencer, mixer feedback, MultiDrive overdrive, and extensive modulation routing. Paraphonic mode also makes this the also the first multi-voice synth Moog has produced in over three decades. What's great about this is that it lets me create a wide new range of sounds, pushing it into entirely new areas of analog synth performance. Still, it can sound like a classic Moog whenever I want it to. Digital control makes the Sub 37 even more powerful. I can control almost everything via MIDI CCs, and with 256 presets (plus a software editor), I can instantly recall my most complex and intricate patches. I stake my reputation on this: 20 years from now, the Sub 37 will be remembered as one of the great analog performance synths!
