Moog SUB 37: This synthesizer looks amazing! It’s a mixture of Sub Phatty, Little Phatty and Voyager. And it’s the first compact Moog synthesizer with on-board step sequencer. The control panel is full of control elements, providing 40 knobs and 74 buttons. The Tribute Edition even comes with fine wooden side panels.

Picking up where we left off with the “Buchla” theme (Report Part 1), lets stay in the good old USA and dedicate a few moments to MOOG. The booth of the German distributor EMC is like a beehive and especially the new SUB 37 attracts people like magic. But all the other Phattys are there, too, and the Voyager and – you guessed it – the powerful Voyager XL.
The new Moog baby has arrived. Moog SUB 37. A cross between a Sub Phatty and a Little Phatty. And it’s PARAPHONIC! Huh? Well, both oscillators can be independently controlled. In some way it’s “sort of” duophonic …
The SUB 37 panel features 40 knobs, 74 switches and has a dedicated LCD display …
If you’re one of the lucky ones who have just won the lottery or have inhereted a pile of money, this might be of interest to you. There are two extemely rare Moog synths on eBay at the moment.

Well, the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2013 was a remarkable experience. Some say it wasn’t as large as it has been in past years, but there were still lots of new goodies. Since the big news about Yamaha, Korg and Roland was released at the NAMM Show, our report will concentrate on the European market with all of those special products which have enriched the synthesizer landscape for years. And we’ll be meeting some remarkable people along the way …
It sat the standards for monophonic analog synthesizers. It was (and still is) a model and the ideal for dozens of analog instruments. It has been cloned and cast into countless digital images. It has a worthy successor (the Voyager) from the same family tree. And still it remains unsurpassed. The Minimoog.
Attached: pictures and sounds of a perfect classic.
