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.
Xhun Audio is proud to present LittleOne, a faithful emulation of a new classic: the Moog Little Phatty analog synthesizer. To produce a rich and warm sound, LittleOne emulates the analog signal path of the Little Phatty and every single component of it (oscillators, filter, envelopes, LFO …), have the original frequency responses and frequency ranges. The result is an analog-sounding instrument – all in the digital domain.
Improved Oscillators algorithm
The new bandlimited oscillators produce waveforms with a strong brilliance (improving frequencies response, specially in the 4kHz-20kHz range). This allows a better simulation of a real analogue oscillator, without digital artifacts (aliasing).
Analogue Components Emulation
One of the main (and more exciting) features of version 2.0 is the emulation of the analogue components inside the synth. Oscillators, Filters, Lfos (,…) simulates the micro-instability and imperfections of the analogue technology. This feature brings richness, genuineness and depth to the sound.
New Sound Banks
Together with an improved factory sound bank, LittleOne comes with additional presets (300+ in total) covering all styles, from classic analog to FM, to contemporary cutting-edge dance. All the patches of the original Moog Little Phatty (Tribute Edition and Stage Edition) are included.
Improved GUI and minor bug fixes
The Graphical User Interface is improved, as well as some bugs of version 1.x are fixed.
LittleOne version 2.0 full features:
# The Moog Little Phatty Physical Modeling emulation
# Analogue Components Emulation
# Two aliasing-free analog modeled oscillators with continuous selection mode ( like the original ) between Triangle, Saw, Square, Pulse
# A 4-Pole resonant Low Pass filter modeled on the classic Moog Ladder, featuring the original frequency responses, self-oscillation and overload control
# Two 4-Stage ( ADSR ) envelope generators
# Modulation LFO with the original waveforms and frequency ranges ( 0.2~500 Hz )
# Monophonic/polyphonic mode , pitch bend ranges and more – all accessible from LittleOne LED display
# 300+ ready-to-use presets from classic analog to contemporary cutting-edge dance to psychoacoustic sounds and SFX. Original Little Phatty Stage Edition and Tribute Edition patches are included.
# XSQ16M, a build-in 16-step MIDI sequencer
# GATED!, a build-in 16-step trancegate effect
# Two master effects slots with the possibility to choose between delay, reverb, tube distortion, flanger, chorus
# Full MIDI CC#s mapping (according to the original Little Phatty CC#s specs)
Xhun Audio faithful emulators of the Moog Little Phatty VSTi have officially announced the Worldwide release of Little One 2.0. The new version will be available December 13, 2010. The new version is free for registered users. The main improvements are are mostly within the DSP modeling side of things, GUI, and some new sound banks.
Experimenting with the iPad with POLYSTEPARP. This time I sent the sequence live to a MOOG Little Phatty thats running thru a Freqbox, Ringmod, and a Bass Murf which in turn is passing thru the DAWs Direct monitor live with a u-he Filter with some delays and verb. Access Virus TI Polar is playing some pads in the back
I didn’t expect this to work at all but thought I’d try it anyway just for fun…
I’m running the midi out from the Phatty through a simple Midi to CV converter which is then connected to the cv and gate inputs on the Rogue. Tracking is not the best as you can hear. I made the two synths sound almost the same in order to avoid more tracking/patch weirdness.
