Moog Sub 37 Firmware 1.1.0 Sequencer testing & some tweakings
Moog today released a major firmware update for the Moog Sub 37 analog synthesizer.
The update adds a variety of step sequencing features, including step edit mode, skips, ratcheting and per-step mod sequencing; control voltage mapping that lets you control just about anything via the external CV inputs; and the option to add randomness to the oscillator tuning.
Video: Yesterday I got a note from Moog that the long anticipated 1.10 firmware for the Moog Sub 37 was now available. Today I scheduled time in my studio to install it and test out some of the new features. This update is significant because the bulk of the updates are new features! In this video I demonstrated step edit mode and quick mapping of modulation destinations.

Craig Leon, famous for his work with The Ramones and Blondie, as well as his work in the classical arena with such leading artists as Luciano Pavarotti, Joshua Bell and Sir James Galway, talks about the inspiration behind and the process of creating his latest record: “Bach to Moog.”
In 1968, the album ‘Switched On Bach’ inspired many musicians of the time to explore the wondrous new world of synthesized music making. This ground-breaking album was the first ever to take standard classical repertoire and interpret it solely on a device which generated new sounds electronically. Although there had been research and sonic experiments earlier, it was after this breakthrough release that the synthesizer entered the mainstream of modern experimental and pop music recording.
As a welcome extension to the synthesized exploration of Bach’s music and the many creative opportunities that opened up 50 years ago, ‘Bach to Moog’ album integrates the Moog modular synthesizer into the orchestra as a solo instrument, in ensemble and also as a processor of other instruments.
