The mighty analog Moog Sub Phatty Synthesizer is under control of Q960 Sequential Controller. As usual, Row A is for Pitch, Row B is for Filter opening. On this video, while sequence is running, there are tests for EGs snap, OSC reset under key Gate, fattyness of SubOsc, wild brutality of Multidrive distortion. Such a lovely, little analog machine.
Moog Sub Phatty has two oscillators, one sub oscillator, one noise generator, one lowpass filter transistor ladder and a dual distortion unit pre/post filter. On this video, you’ll find a walkaround of waveforms and treatment ready to go with sub oscillation and distortion.
Here is a demonstration of the VCA envelope and the preset functionality of the Moog Sub Phatty.
Here is part one of a series of two videos which demonstrate the sound and functionality of the modulation section of the Moog Sub Phatty.
Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the Moog Sub Phatty’s filter section.
“Previous to the shooting of these demo videos, I set all of the “under the hood” functionality to settings that would cause the synthesizer to act most like a vintage synthesizer. In the process of shooting, the synthesizer was turned on and off a number of times. A couple of times, I found that certain obvious settings had been reset (like the LFO pitch tracking feature, which kept coming on). When it didn’t affect the subject I was shooting, I didn’t reset them to my tastes. It appears that I should have, because it now seems likely that this video was shot with the filter in 18 dB or12dB per octave mode, despite the fact that I had set it to 24dB per octave before starting the series of shoots. Keep that in mind! (sadly, I no longer possess the unit, so I can’t reshoot!)”

The Moog Sub Phatty theme is comprised of Sub Phatty sounds, with the exception of the drums, which were programmed using an Ensoniq ASR-10. There are no effects used of any kind.
See if you can spot the two glaring quality control failures which evince my commitment to getting videos out quickly to all of you.

Keyboard legends Stevie Wonder, Bernie Worrell, Larry Dunn, and Dr. Lonnie Smith were among the artists to visit the Moog booth during the madness of NAMM 2013 to play the new Moog SUB PHATTY.

Amos Gaynes from Moog Music gives an outstanding walk through of the new Moog Sub Phatty. Amos is responsible for the
firmware design of the Sub Phatty, as well as the firmware on the reputable Moog Minitaur which debuted last year at NAMM 2012.
We’re honored to have this authority on the matter explain some of the features and design principles in Moog’s latest
synthesizer. They will retail for $999.00, will be shipping in March, and are American manufactured as Moog has always been!
The sound is quite huge and the build quality is solid. It retains the classic sound you would want in a Moog synth, but is also ventures into a wider
palette of sonic possibility.
An exclusive in-room demo of the new Moog Sub Phatty. Hear the sounds, learn it’s features and get a deep insight in to all of the sonic possibilities of the new Moog, including driving drums through the brand new multi-drive filter.
