How does the price stack up to the Behringer D?
Well you could buy 4 Behringer D’s and have change left over for the price of one Moog, I’d take the Moog though over 4 D’s ….. the lights are much prettier 😀
I’m pretty happy with my Sub37 as is and it’ll be one of the last things I’d sell. I doubt I’ll pay what amounts that price to upgrade. If it added the CV outs it would be a different story.
I don’t use my CVs so I may want to upgrade my Sub 37.
My keybed is definitely a little rickety and uneven on an otherwise awesome product.
However, it works fine and I don’t expect it to break so I’m torn on whether to spend the dough.
Maybe they sourced the keybed from Uli Behringer lol. That sounds just like my Deepmind 12 .. an uneven and rickety keybed on an otherwise awesome synth.
Sold my Sub 37 to fund other gear. I am happy. Sold it just in time before the new version was announced and got a decent price for it.
No CV outputs leaves me a little cold on the upgrade. Maybe I’ll do it in time. Happy with the product as is and I think the sound is excellent. I’m not really a keyboardist so if they offered the new sound engine and headphone boards without the keybed, I’d probably do that.
I firmly want to see a desktop version with the CV upgrade. Am I alone?
I wonder if they could fit it in the same size as the Mother-32… Maybe if they source their knobs from Roland.
I wouldn’t want it if it isn’t ergonomic. I prefer the large format modular stuff so a full size desktop to go with the moogerfooger effects would be dreamy.
The cv output upgrade would be really useful to so many people so it seems rather sad not to offer it. It’s definitely the one upgrade that I would wish for on my sub 37.
Probably I can finally replace my not-so-working Sub37 that’s been bouncing between me and Thomann.
I was in guitar center and played on one, amazing how many pots were BAD
Key-bed Only Update: $159 + shipping. Because Moog sold you a synth for a lot of money with a noisy bad keybed. Thats what we call service!
Can you buy a subsequent 37 and pay for the case and wooden side panels of a sub 37? The subsequent 37 is one of the ugliest keyboards I have ever seen.
Moog should be replacing those wonky Substandard37 keybeds for free! I’ve had three S37’s – the first two got sent back with keybeds that were so bad they actually had dead notes and the third one, which I kept, does what it’s supposed to do but the keybed looks like a 40-year old vintage synth its so rickety. Without the CV, this upgrade is not worth the money imho.
