Yeah it's all "horses for courses". Everything fits some niche. I too like the bass on the Sub-37, how do you think it compares to the new D?
I think the bass on the sub 37 is very powerful and rich. They have engineered that thing to be overdriven in different ways that are really interesting I think and unique. When you combine that with the sub 37's filter which is just really muffled and dark sounding you have subterranean bass that is off the charts. The sub 37's bass can be just really dark and spooky and opening the filter up it can sound very much like some kind of bass horn in a beautiful way. I think the overdriven sound of the oscillators interacting with the filters along with variable wave shape modulation make the sub 37 incredibly compelling in the upper octaves as well.
I dont know how to compare that to the Model D, you just get that modular sound out of the D. Let me put it this way. Until I got the MF drive pedal I was really missing the sub 37's darker muffled and overdriven sound and it made me feel torn between the two. Now that I have the MF Drive I am very happy with only keeping the MiniMoog. I can get darker and spookier and more muffled now in the bass when I want to and I can get that overdriven upper octave sound now as well. I also have that modular sounding bass with the D and the really smooth and beautiful way the oscillators seem to blend with the D in the upper octaves. I chose the MiniMoog over the Sub so that says something but I would have never felt complete without the MF drive Pedal.
