At the end of a Shining-esque hotel corridor in a windowless suite was where Moog were showing off one of the few prototype Sub 37 analog synthesizers they are introducing here at NAMM 2014.
NAMM 2014: With a voice architecture very simillar to the Sub Phatty, which was announced at last years NAMM Show, the extra keys (37 in fact) of the Sub 37 have enabled the designers to add more frontage to the panel, allowing for more knob per function action. Indeed the Moog Sub 37 allows for editing of most of the Sub Phatty's hidden functions making it even more instantly hands of for sound programming. Speaking of which, there are also 256 on board memory locations.
You have the same multi-pole Moog filter, Multidrive circuitry plus a variable feedback control for even more driven Moog-ness.
Additionally, much has been made of the paraphonic operation which lets you play each of the two oscillators independently, althought they share the same single VCA and VCF etc.
Amos Gaynes took us through the features, and we have to say it did sound great in his hands.
Looks like it will be priced at around $1495 and be available soon.
