The new Moog Sub 37 paraphonic analogue synthesizer, is based on the Sub Phatty sound engine and comes with a host of new features that Moog has carefully developed, based on extensive user feedback. These new features include a programmable Arpeggiator/Step-Sequencer, Duo Mode, two modulation busses with user-assignable source and destination options, direct access to 256 presets, and a 37-note velocity sensitive keyboard with aftertouch. Not only is the Sub 37 powerful and versatile enough for studio recording, but also the easy to use controller interface combined with the sturdy chassis makes it great for taking on the tour.
The Sub 37 comes with a fully featured and programmable Arpeggiator and Step-sequencer, with all the controls laid out in a readily accessible panel. Classic arpeggiator modes can be easily dialled in, switched on, and with expressive controls at your fingertips, you can attenuate the level of smoothness or crunch to your heart's content. Switching over to sequencer mode is as simple as pushing a button. Hit record, play a pattern on the keys and then push play to hear it back. You can transpose recorded passages on the fly, as well as make tonal adjustments using the array of Modulation Busses, Oscillators, Filters and Envelope Generators on offer.
The 16 quick select sequencer buttons can be used to access the 256 built-in presets, that's 16 banks x 16 presets, with 128 factory presets and 128 user presets for you to fill with your own sounds.
One of the latest features of the Sub 37 is Duo Mode, which allows Oscillator's 1 and 2 to be played independently. This opens is a world of opportunities for you to explore. The Glide section allows you to assign the effect to Osc 1 and 2 independently, to set up a two-part sound with both a driving bass sound and a smoother lead sound; both Osc 1 and 2 can be synced to ensure that sweeps, filters, etc., will stay perfectly in time, allowing you to make your sound as simple or complex as you wish.
By taking advantage of the aftertouch feature on the keyboard, you can use this a controller to feed into either of the modulation busses, giving you incredible hands-on touch control over mod settings.
Classic Features with a Twist
Taken from the Sub Phatty are the powerful DAHDSR (Delay, Attack, Hold, Decay, Sustain, Release) looping envelopes with panel control for each. As well as featuring the Classic Moog ladder filter circuit - with resonance, MultiDrive, and selectable filter slopes that deliver creamy and warm analogue tones -, the team behind the Sub 37 have played around with the gain staging, drive and distortion to take your sonic palette to another level. The mixer section includes a new Feedback control that takes the sum of all the sound sources going through the synth, which can be fed back into the Sub 37 via the external audio input. This allows you to go from smooth overdrive to heavily distorted for devastating effects.
Accessible Envelope Generators
Unlike the Sub Phatty, the Sub 37's Envelope Generator controls are laid out on the front panel within very easy reach. These can be latched for smooth sustain, looped and adjusted with the greatest of ease to make you performances as seamless and as smooth as possible, so that your creativity can run wild.
The Moog Sub 37 paraphonic analogue synthesizer takes everything you love from their previous models, adds an extensive range of new features and makes it even easier than ever to manipulate your sound in real-time. This is a performer's instrument with incredible potential both in the studio and on the stage.
