Little / Slim Phatty Polychain question

Postby motion drive » Tue Dec 20, 2016 5:12 am

Hi all

I have a Little Phatty and a Sub 37. I wanted to sell the Little Phatty, as I thought one Moog will do it. But I realised, the Sub 37 sounds quite different, so keeping both would be ok. First I wanted to add a Voyager instead of the LP, as it was my long time dream. Now I checked some online videos showing the LP/SP polyphonic sounds. They truly sound awesome. Now I'm thinking, maybe buying 2-3 SP would be smarter then adding a Voyager. A polyphonic Moog isnt very common and would maybe add more tonal variety then the Voyager.

Now I think I understood how the polychaining works...but I still have some questions. As far as I understand, you have one Master Phatty. Every parameter change I do there, will be done on all the other Phattys aswell...right? This goes for any parameter...Filter, ENV, LFO etc? So its like having a global control? Of course its 4 LFOs...but they act all the same simultanously?

Another question...I do have a CP-251 wich I use mainly as a second LFO and Noise source for the LP. When I plug the CP-251 LFO on the Filter CV or Pitch CV of the Master LP...does this apply on the other SP's as well in polymode? I guess it should right?

Thx for feedback.

The difference is like a choice beetween expensive sport car and premium auto with personal driver. There are a lot of pluses and minuses.

Yes, every parameter synced by midi, except for CV control.

No. Every CV in of polychain needs the same voltage. So, you will plug your LFO Out to multiple in, then plug multiple outs to each CV In on Phattys.
