Polychaining: The Phatt Bastard Project

Postby Flareless » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:27 pm

I've been building a polychain of Phattys in what I'm calling The Phatt Bastard Project

The chain is presently up to 6 voices.

Excellent post! Having 3 Slim Phatty to polychain with my Little Phatty is a current dream of mine. The only problem is that I live in Brazil, and they’re rare around here.

Thank you for sharing all this knowledge with us.

Would love to hear some sound examples...

Cheers!

Thanks. The good news is that Slim Phatty's are available from all around the world. Shipping isn't too bad. Good luck in building your dream synth!

I'll put some sound clips and video together soon and post on this thread.

I've recently resolved a nightmare where I recovered a Slim Phatty that was, for all intents and purposes, BRICKED :cry:

You can read the details at this link

I'm hoping to get some recording of Phatt Bastard going soon. I've been working on some cool patches and the polyphony is excellent. I've also spread each voice around the stereo field through the line mixer. It REALLY enhances the sound.

Very interesting, thanks for posting this! :)

Just for the sake of research efficiency, let me place the tags "unbrick" and "unbricked" here ;)

Your Phatty tower looks great!

I have a question:
I would like to build up something similar for my live rig, but more than 3 slim phattys would cause a logistic problem - too big, too heavy.
So I wonder if I could take 3 phattys and add a synth by a different brand at the end of the chain just in case I would need more than 3 voices.
Do you have experiences in doing so?
Tanx in advance!

Thanks!

The Moog Minitaur can also be polychained with the Phattys although I've never personally done this.

Yeah - I know. But the tone range is limited, it´s not 19" and there are no memory patches.
It´s for one of my live rigs and as I already mentioned, 6 oder 7 slim phattys would be way too big and heavy.
