And with the MultiDrive control, you can add everything from subtle grit to over-the-top distortion, for a broad palette of punchy vintage and modern sounds. If you've always craved an affordable, compact Moog mono synth, your wait is over. The Moog Sub Phatty: you know you need it.

Moog Sub Phatty 25-key Analog Synthesizer at a Glance:
  • Think you've heard synth bass?
  • Deploy your secret weapon: Multidrive
  • The Legendary Ladder Filter - and impressive knobularity
  • Modulation madness
  • CV and gate inputs connect Sub Phatty with your other gear
Think you've heard synth bass?

Just wait till 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-grade bottom end. Combine the Sub Oscillator with the Sub Phatty's two main oscillators and noise generator, and there's almost no limit to the mayhem you can unleash. But the Sub Phatty isn't just for crafting immense basses. This little synth is a Moog, after all, so it naturally excels at snarling, agressive leads. Great sound is part of its DNA.

Your secret weapon: pre and post-filter overdrive

The Moog Sub Phatty's mixer section is set up so that the oscillator level controls pass unity gain at 12 noon; beyond that, you're overdriving the input of the filter for some classic Minimoog-flavored distortion. But here's where it really gets interesting: Built into the filter section, the Multidrive circuit gives you control over rich and powerful post-filter overdrive. According to synth lore, a goodly part of the 1971 Minimoog Model D's sonic moxie stemmed from the fact that the filter was overdriven by somewhere in the vicinity of 10-15dB. Further, 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 onboard

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, and standalone ladder filters have been studio favorites for decades. The Sub Phatty's ladder lets you dial in your optimal filter cutoff frequency and tweak the resonance to create classic fat 'n' punchy Moog sounds.

Modulation madness, and knobs galore

Want to modulate your filter resonance? Of course you do! The Moog Sub Phatty's onboard LFO lets you modulate without having to commandeer 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 into the Sub Phatty's external input and process your axe for some serious fun. And 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!
