Background description by Hans Skoulaman:
Still a week to go for my concert with AKS. I found this beauty setting of the Waldorf Q. Its a nice sample of a full resonant opened filter’(notch). It is controlled by the Moog Little Phatty (by the arpeggiator and the modulation wheel) and the funny thing is that although the Moog isn’t velocity sensitive the keys are and it works perfect for other velocity sensitive MIDI instruments. Its sends also polyfonic. I tweaked some Juno 106 noise together with the Moog sequence.
The solo pieces are from the Concertmate MG-1 and the DS8. The pads came from my favorit DS-8 and a low string sound from the Korg 05r/w. In opposite is the string and e-piano sound from the Lamda. All processed with Lexicon, Yamaha, Ibanez, Alesis and Electrix effects. It is best listened with good audio gear then you here the rich harmonics of the Waldorf, I filmed and recorded everything live without overdubs (I mostly don’t use that).

In this video Arjen Schat demonstrates how to create flute sounds with the Moog Little Phatty. He starts from the calibration patch (CA CALIBRATION) as usual and create a flute sound as he goes.
In this video Arjen Schatt demonstrates how to create bass sounds with the Moog Little Phatty. He starts from the calibration patch (CA CALIBRATION) as usual and create a bass sound as I go.
In this video Arjen Schat demonstrates how to create lead sounds with the Moog Little Phatty. Arjen starts from the calibration patch (CA CALIBRATION) again and create a lead sound as he goes. Quick note: He syncs the oscillators to get a sharper sound. For a wider sound you can leave the oscillators un-synced.
In this video Arjen Schat demonstrates how to create kick drums with the Moog Little Phatty. He start from the calibration patch (CA CALIBRATION) and create a filter kick drum and an oscillator kick drum.

Little Phatty running through Corpus effect:
“I randomly play around with Corpus settings. The Little Phatty “patch” is unchanged throughout. It’s simple on “Calibration” with the filter wide open and just a single saw oscillator enabled. Towards the end of the video I get close to a “talking bass” kind of patch (hence the “pseudo”.”

Here’s what they have to say about it:
Both the Moog Little Phatty keyboard and the Slim Phatty module are monophonic instruments, but chain them together with MIDI and you can create a polyphonic Moog system! I wish we had more Slim Phatties lying around but at time of writing are currently sold out :’~|
That’s a good thing though, right? If you have one of these synths (or a Voyager which can also be chained), and know someone else who does too, get over there and try this out!
Anyhow. This vid is unfortunately in mono (onboard camera sound too), and most certainly not a musical statement, as we had just received the Slim Phatty and I was just testing that the setup works! I had individual synths to individual speakers and in stereo, in person, it sounded AMAZING. You’ll have to forgive my complete inability to play a keyboard. God bless MIDI. And Dr Bob Moog.
