Also, there has been no word whatsoever of the LP or SP being discontinued. As of right now, the Sub is just another addition to the Phatty family.

...since fitting a CV BreakOut Box for the Slim has been a problem ~ I'm wondering if Mr.SUB could be a way to bring that functionality to the table? ~ Exciting times! Gosh Namm it! We shall see! We shall see! :lol:

Is anyone else thinking that is just a bass synth. In the little demo it's only lower notes we hear. I hope I'm wrong but I'm not thinking that a LP old school is in the works.

I, too, am thinking bass synth. It appears in the video to only have a 25 key keyboard. This would suggest a limited frequency range, and seeing as how the demo only shows the lower registers being played, I'd say that yes, this will be strictly a bass synth.

I hope not! That seems like alot of features (noise, 2 oscs, overdrive) for just basslines! we'll see soon enough-

What in the heck is the matter with you people? Why in tarnation would Moog put out another bass synth? WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT??? There is literally no reason to think it is anything other than a Phatty! It's in the name, dadgummit! If it was a bass synth, it would be called something-TAUR, but it ISN'T! JEEZUS!
I don't own anything that would make you jealous.

One part of me concurs with you. But after watching the video a few more times causes me think otherwise. Could the smaller keyboard be just for mock up? Why no higher pitches in the video? Is Moog just messing with us?

A Phatty should have more than 25 keys. Most synths with 25 keys are bass synths. Until I hear some searing leads from this synth, I am labeling this "thing" a bass synth.

We have worked out together most likely and best name for marketing purposes will be "Sub Phatty"
Lets design a case for it
I would like to see a move away from the Little Phatty type case to a more traditional Voyager type case
I vote for mini voyager type case --should be almost the same price to do as regular Phatty case and would be much nicer

Failing that I would like a mostly metal case exactly like an MS-20

Uhm, Minibrute? That's the only modern analog synth with 25 keys. Not a bass synth.

The comment in the video about how quickly the OSCs are stable leads me to believe this new synth is built off the taurus engine. Did they tweak it for more range or not remains to be seen? They definitely added more features.

I wonder if the sub OSC will be properly phase locked. And will there be any other waveforms other than square for it.

Here is a pic
http://img.audiofanzine.com/image.php?l ... _id=252630

RRP $999

No way is it just a bass synth like the Minitaur- thats not going to happen -I think we will see an Editor and maybe patch memory (ref Minitaur V2 as a good example)
plus one to Moog --got to be their best synth since the Voyager
Nothing is going to compete with this in that price range
awesome!!!!!

Nice pic adds a lot of clarity. I was way off base. Doh't.

Looks like fully variable waveforms like the phatty's.

I like my LP a lot. But, I am sick of presets and menus. Can't wait to see what it has to offer. I am getting a bit of quick onset GAS.

An extra half an octave would have added a lot of playability, but oh well. I often like to use the fine tune knob to change keys anyway. The shorter length will be helpful integrating it in my setup. I hope they went with a better feeling keybed then the LP stage line.

I like the big fat cutoff knob.

If McBeth made something like this it would be $2000 easy
who knows the editor may have an arp and step sequencer and other hidden features as icing on the cake
No other manufactor will come anywhere close at Namm 2013 to bring out a quality instrument at the $999 price tag that is built like a tank and will last for decades
I think I need to lie down!!!
They are shipping end of February--I preordered one already-
