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.”

Moog Music has introduced The Ladder Filter, the first in its 500 Series of modules. The new module is based on Bob Moog’s classic filter design.
The 500 Series is a Pro Audio Industry Standard for modular rack recording units. Moog Music will now be producing modules for the 500 Series standard and the Pro Audio industry.
“There have been a lot of firsts for Moog this year,” says Mike Adams, President/CEO of Moog Music. “The release of Animoog, the first professional synthesizer for the iPad has introduced us to whole new segment of customers. Now, The Ladder will reacquaint Moog with the Pro Audio community that embraced Moog Modular Synthesizers in the 1960’s. We are very happy to see the market embracing this exciting format and we look to developing other modules.”
