Free Moog Sub 37 Patch Library

Brazilian synthesist Marcus Padrini has shared a free collection of patches for the Moog Sub 37 synthesizer.

Here’s what he has to say about his free Sub 37 patch library:

“Almost 6 years after creating and sharing my first patches for the Moog Sub 37, I thought it was about time to share more timbres created for that amazing synth.

So here is the video featuring the new free patches, with and without FX. Some are versions of very famous patches from my favorite bands (mainly progressive rock) and others are original patches created for synth jams or just to explore the Sub 37 capabilities.

One good and educational thing about sharing Sub 37 patches is the possibility to open the patches with the Sub 37 editor, which has a great UI, and check how everything was programmed. The 3D Space patch is a good example for that: load of modulations going on.”


In the video, the first version for each patch is without any effect. The second version includes a selection of chorus, reverb and delay effects from a Zoom MS70CDR.

Tom Sweep – Sub 37 version for this classic Rush patch
Aquatarkus 1 – Based on timbres from live ELP recordings
Aquatarkus 2 – Based on the original recording
Hoedown – Sub 37 version of this classic ELP intro
Lead Duo – exploring the duophonic side
3D Space – different modulations for a more rhythmic tone
Blade intro – Sub 37 version of the classic by Vangelis
Delle Fate – based on the beautiful Italian prog band lead
From the beginning – Modular adaptation to Sub 37 of the ELP classic
Ice – inspired by the lead from the classic Camel band
ResoDistort – drive, paraphony and resonance for this ideal tone for diverse solos.
Rick in the 70s – daring to create a version of Wakeman’s classic, using the 6db filter slope
Lady Fantasy – classic arpeggio by Camel
Random Increment – fun with the sequencer
S&H Sequence – Sequence with Modulations and Sample & Hold

The Moog Sub 37 patch library is available now as a free download (.zip).

  1. Moog Sub 37 is undoubtedly a modern classic. The modern yet classic Moog sound, the ability to save patches and control every detail via MIDI, the solid and elegant construction …

    Over the years I have tried to replace the Moog Sub 37 with other monophonic synths: Pro2, Pro3, Subsequent 37, Grandmother, but nothing has reached the heights that the Sub 37 reaches.

    1. Sythesista , I thought the difference between Sub37 and Subsequent 37 was the added headroom in mixer section and headphone output as well as added distortion in the multidrive. In other words, if you attenuate the volume settings on the mixer of a subsequent 37 you should get the same sound results as on a sub37, as the rest of the circuitry has remained the same? Not correct?

      1. According to Moog, you are right. But it seems like a lot of Sub 37 users that switched or “upgraded” to the Subsequent 37 were a little disappointed with the sound compared to the Sub 37. I only own a Sub 37, so I’m not an expert, and I assumed the sound of the Subsequent would easily cover the Sub 37 sonic range, plus more. However some people think the full sound of the Sub 37 isn’t quite there on the Subsequent 37.

        1. After getting comfortable with the sound of the sub 37 it takes a while to retrain the hearing for the newer synth. Not that one is either better or worse than the other. Give it time.
