When I first saw "sub37" I thought it meant a sub Phatty with a longer keyboard, but upon reading the description it sounds more like Animoog and DX-7 got together for a night of gettin' freaky and one of them ended up getting their eggo preggo.
I don't own anything that would make you jealous.

The descriptions, if I recall correctly, are just placeholders, right? There has been a lot of call for a bigger subphatty, so I am sure that is what it is. Dammit, i am going to have divert funds away from the children's charity I have been giving to.

You can play the Sub Phatty with a bigger keyboard for not a lot of money: it's called a MIDI keyboard controller. :wink:

If that assumption is correct, what additional controls/pots/buttons will Moog put onto the copious panel real estate?

As for the Teremini, wat dat? Guessing a low-cost portable, battery powered noise box to match the market owned by Volcas and Monotribes? The CV output will be handy for MFs?

true, but how would you like to play your minimoog with a midi keyboard? It's not exactly the same, is it? The access to the left hand controller while playing with both hands is one thing, as well reaching the knobs while playing.

Unfortunately, the current fashion in synths being to reduce the size of everything, I doubt that it could be a 37 key Sub Phatty version... But you never know ? :D

Here's what the Trademark actually refers to:

Downloadable software in the nature of a mobile application for composing, playing and recording music; sound frequency filters for controlling audio parameters by raising or lowering the gain of specific audio frequencies using a multiple resonant filter array and animating those frequencies using a built-in pattern generator.


So it's not a larger keyboard on the SubPhatty.

When does the Sub76 come out? Now that would be a nice keyboard...

That is the same description as the murf. From what I understand, the descriptions are just placeholders. I mean what else could it be? The small keyboard has been repeatedly complained about, not just on this forum, but other bigger ones, and Moog has been really good at listening to it's customers, within reason that is. So I would bet the farm it is a bigger Sub Phatty.

Ah, I got it. Placeholder just to throw off the competition... I guess this is Industry Standard Practice.
