The new synth has the same features and sound engine as the original limited edition Little Phatty designed by Bob Moog, and also boasts improved software and a unique auto-calibration feature. And for those excited about the lower cost Tribute, the new Stage model tantalizes even further with a retail price of $1,375. The Little Phatty Stage Edition will begin shipping in February 2007.
The Little Phatty Stage Edition features a 100% analog signal path with Real Analog Control (RAC), two ultra stable Voltage Controlled Oscillators and one Voltage Controlled Filter among other versatile features like CV inputs, KB gate and full MIDI in/out control.
The Stage Edition has updated software, which includes auto calibration and an auto tune function that ensures the instrument is tuned perfectly whether it’s in a cool studio or under hot stage lighting. The software update also includes an asymmetric pitch wheel as well as arbitrary pot mapping that allows the user to assign knobs to perform different functions. Owners of the Tribute Edition will be able to download the updated software package free from the Moog Music Web site.
The Stage Edition departs from a traditional wood cabinet and is cradled instead by sleek, charcoal-colored rubberized side panels.
