Moog Slim Phatty Synthesizer – A Moog Synth For $799!

The Moog Slim Phatty, just moved from rumor status to blurry-cam status, is a new rack-mountable version of the Moog Little Phatty synthesizer.

It hasn’t officially been announced, but this photo has leaked out, via the Fall American Musical Supply catalog, along with this short blurb:

The Slim Phatty offers a 100% analog signal path, intuitive user interface, rugged construction with MIDI, USB and Control Voltage functionally.

Expect to see:

  • two analog VCO’s
  • a 24 dB/Oct Moog ladder filter
  • VCA
  • Two ADSR envelope generators
  • 4-waveform LFO
  • MIDI In/Out
  • Gate, Pitch, Filter & Volume CV’s in
  • Ext. Audio in

The Moog Slim Phatty is reportedly priced at $799. This is about $700 less than the Little Phatty keyboard, making it a pretty killer price for a real analog Moog synth!

None of this info on the Moog Slim Phatty is official yet. We’ll let you know as soon as the official specs are announced.

In the meantime, though, check it out and let us know – are you interested in a Moog synth for $799?

  1. AWESOME!

    I am totally getting one of these. Does it have audio in/out so I can connect it to other modular stuff like Moogerfoogers and all that?

  2. thats all fun in games if you want a toy synthisier but real modulaters only use DC 90. frequency processors (the model before used the N1 Photon I believe)

    a real modulator like a doepfer or even korg has nearly 7x the amount of tri-conversions per cycle second and it would be nearly impossible for a 4 knob moog to replicate a harmony such as this.

    for $800, I would put it towards an a100

  3. @Paul MacGruber I bet your music sounds SO much better thanks to the superior edge of using only DC90 freq processors. just the other day i listened to this shitty album that clearly had far too few tri-conversions per cycle coming from the synths, it was just pathetic. obviously those musicians were just using toys. good thing you and I are better than that.

    amazing you can care about stuff like this and yet not manage to spell synthesizer correctly.

  4. hahaha! Pie,..you rock son! Oh and MacGruber? Spell check my friend! Spell check! Modulaters? All of this I'm better and your not tri-conversions per cycle stuff! Just make music, share it and stop comparing dick size already! Funny!

    🙂

  5. McGruber has a point from a very narrow perspective…

    Modular IS the way to go for really scientific analog sound design… but not important for creating inspiring music…

    My voyager is my favorite synth of all time, and I also own a eurorack modular (a decent size one with lots of modules from wiard, doepfer, STG, and livewire). The moog is just built sturdier, feels more like an instrument than lab gear, sounds unique, and always gives me amazing results. I could play with my modular for hours and never get the same level of satisfaction i get from my moog… It's the single most sentimental thing I own.

  6. I hope they'll implement a system to allow stacking for polyphonic stuff like DSI does.
    A 4 voice moog for 3000$? Not that bad.

  7. Not too shure – while price cut in half enhances the appeal, absence of keyboard lowers it a lot more. Rack synths are not sexy unless they are big modulars.

    But I like that rear panel has classic shape, not LP curve.

  8. If you can't tell that Paul McGruber is trolling, then you really need to check your sarcasm detector! There is no such thing as a "tri-converter per cycle" or whatever lol

  9. I'd love a rack Phatty, but not with CV connections on the back. That shit just doesn't make sense. Take a space saving concept and make it totally inconvenient. WTF?

  10. It has midi, guest, but when you control a Moog analog with midi you can hear digital zipping artifacts, especially on pitch bend and sync sweeps. I know, because it's the main problem I have with my Voyager. On the other hand, when you control the pitch bend and sync sweep with potentiometers, it's smooth as a Model D.

  11. As an aside, Moog Little Phatty/Slim Phatty uses Moog's proprietary RAC technology. No DAC = no zippering.

  12. its for real – serial #0004 is on its way to me at the time of this posting.
    If it didnt have CV wouldnt have gotten it – going to control the synth via
    theremin. Probably the cheapest option to accomplish that and get big
    Moog sound.

  13. Hi Paul,

    I am impressed with your knowledge as a 9 year old boy. However, you still have a long way to go. In the Christmas spirit of things, I am willing to share a little bit to "enlighten" you. Then you will have seek out other teachers to guide you further, my young boy.

    Korg and Doepfer don't have the IMF/G5 capacitors and high voltage rails, so all this talk about DC90 processors means nothing. The Buchla system uses the P-48 4th Quadrant Rectifiers along with the IMF/G5 caps and HV rails which, combined with a straight line input from a large power transformer (bypassing the weaker commercial power lines), you will get the best harmony. As I said, you were almost on the right track, but it's clear that you are using a Korg that runs on batteries (any *REAL* synthesist would know what I'm talking about). Sorry to blow your cover, but it's for the best in the long run.

    Good luck,
