Re: Model D arrived today in the UK

I was just moving my Moog packaging and found a cardboard tube (which I'd assumed was part of the protection during transit). Anyway, turns out it contained a really cool Keith Emerson playing model d poster!!! How wonderful, it's being framed this weekend and getting on the studio wall. Emerson wa...

Re: I Finally Have 3-Tiers of Mothers

Interesting to hear that you are using a passive mixer. Do you find any downsides to the passive mix approach? Hi Stevie Ray, none so far. I liked it enough to get a second one for a different system. What's the passive mixer feeding into? Various things including: Mackie Mixer Bose SoundLink III I...

Re: I Finally Have 3-Tiers of Mothers

Interesting to hear that you are using a passive mixer. I also have 3 mothers (and other things) in a rack and generally route the VCA outputs directly into a compact mixer (usually a Mackie 402VLZ4 or 1202VLZ4). A simple passive mixer would simplify things for me in certain set-ups but I haven't tr...

Re: DIY Midi Cables 3 or 5 wires?

Three wires are all that are required for MIDI. Any wire will do the job. No need for fancy audio or screened cable. Simple bell-wire will do :D True enough. :) My primary reason for using high quality cable for MIDI is for robustness. Indeed. Robustness is the name of the game. The electrical spec...

Re: Minitaur/Mother32 vs Sub Phatty vs Sub 37

If you love the Sub Phatty then go with it. Even if you get a more advanced synthesiser in the future, your Phatty can be used alongside it and will continue to deliver the goods. If I were starting out, I'd get the Sub-37. It may be a little harder to master, but it offers so much more in terms of ...

Re: Sub 37 vs Model D

I Hear what you are saying and I am not arguing with you but just offering a different viewpoint. I think it is intuitive and creative to make and change sounds in a live setting on the Model D. I dont see any problems with not having presets for it. There just aren't that many knobs and functions ...

Re: Sub37 Power-On Spike- Normal?

Mine does 'pop' when I turn it on, but then a lot of my other gear does that too. I generally keep the gain/sliders down on the mixer channel until I want to use it.

Re: Mogue!!

Bob pronounced it 'Mowg'. It's an old Dutch name and should be more correctly pronounced (according to Bob) 'Mough' with a soft 'gh' at the end. He said even some of his family pronounced it differently, and that he didn't care much about the pronunciation, but preferred 'Mowg'. See https://www.yout...

Re: Sub 37 vs Model D

The biggie for me is patch memory. The Sub-37 has a very simple and easy-to-access patch memory system and that's a big win in a performance synthesiser. As a studio instrument the Model D shines of course, but in performance, not so much. I know the D was originally designed as a performance instru...

Re: Trade in Sub 37 for Mother 32?

Without wishing to add to your 'GAS', just a single Mother 32 makes an excellent side-kick to the Sub-37. It gives you an extra oscillator, filter, LFO, envelope and sequencer etc. A complete voice that you can either use in unison with the Sub-37, or as an independent voice for bass, effects, exper...

Re: Sub 37 vs Model D

Is anyone missing the amplifier envelope reset with the new Model D? That's not all you'll be missing. The Model D is a fairly primitive synthesiser by today's standards. The Sub-37 has many advanced features that were simply not possible or practical to incorporate in the original D at the time. H...
