This monophonic Moog offering is a 25-key unit that features two variable waveshape oscillators and is littered with plenty of knobs.
The Sub Phatty's true brief is to be all synths to all people. Fat-bottomed basses, quavering Geddy Lee-ish lead lines or Moogy flutes are all there for the twiddling once you find your way around the instrument.
The original Minimoog Model D promoted exploration and found a niche in almost every genre of popular music. While the Sub Phatty may not be in a position to do quite the same, it has an organic and patently clear connection to those halcyon days of innovation.
Flexible sound shaping, playability and an everyman price make the Sub Phatty a real contender.45 Stars
