2013 NAMM Show: Pricing and specifications for the new Moog Sub Phatty analog synthesizer are now available. The new two-oscillator synthesizer will be Moog’s most affordable keyboard synth, with a street price of $999.
According to Moog, ‘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.’
?We set out to design the grittiest Moog synth ever, one that still offers all of the great sound and flexibility that Moog synthesizers are known for, but that also really has teeth,? said Mike Adams, President of Moog Music. ?One of the great advantages of the Sub Phatty is its ability to conjure aggressive sounds that cut through a dance mix, stand out on-stage, or burn up the studio. We think that everyone from producers and sound designers to DJs and synthesists will have a blast using it.?
We’ve got photos, video and specifications below. Check it out and let us know what you think of the new Moog Sub Phatty!
