Moog Music has announced the Moog Sub Phatty analog synthesizer, a 25 full-size key, 31 knob production instrument that melds the soul and functionality of vintage analog synthesizers with new and unique sound design tools.
The soul and hands-on, real-time sound design functionality of vintage Moog instruments with a completely new — and stunningly aggressive — sound design machine.
Building on the tradition of Moog’s highly successful Phatty family, the Sub Phatty grinds and screams with a uniquely aggressive voice — making it the new standard for synth bass, analog percussion, and a wide range of sound design applications. The Sub Phatty, “is the grittiest Moog Synth ever” said Mike Adams, Moog Music CEO & President.
The engineers at Moog Music have reimagined the Sub Phatty’s sound engine. The instrument features two variable waveshape oscillators that perform with extreme clarity and accuracy while requiring almost no warm-up time. Users can simply power up, dial in settings, and put their fingers to work on the keys to summon crisp and detailed waveforms with vibrant sound that brims with high-frequency harmonic content, yet stays true to the rich sonic density that has become synonymous with Moog synthesizers.
The Sub Phatty is available to pre-order for $1,099 USD. It will ship in March, 2013.
