Dr. Robert Moog's legendary synthesiser company launched its self proclaimed "grittiest" sounding synthesiser yet at NAMM 2013.
Starting in 1954 with its legendary Moog Theramin and pioneering the synthesiser world in 1964 with its first modular synth, Moog then moved on to create the game changing MiniMoog of 1970; a machine that is proclaimed to have changed the world of music forever!
The title says it all! Moog have been hinting at it for days but they've now officially announced that they will be releasing a new analogue mono synth this year - the Sub Phatty! It looks great, it sounds 'PHAT' and thankully, it is priced extremely competitively! To get to grips with it then we suggest checking out the video below!
Not long after Moog announced that they are set to unveil a brand new analogue synth at NAMM 2013, they also leaked this picture, which appeared to show its front panel branded with the name 'Sub Phatty'! We're assuming that the Sub Phatty will join the Phatty series of analogue synthesisers (which currently contains the Little Phatty and Slim Phatty) and judging from the teaser video that Moog also released, it's going to more than live up to its name!
In preparation for NAMM 2013, Moog have released a teaser video of their brand new analogue synth. Check out Herb Deutsch playing with it whilst explaining some of its features. If you're anything like us, after hearing it you'll be itching for the imminent full announcement at NAMM 2013 later this month!
Moog have announced their first delay unit for the API 500 Series! The Delay is a low-noise, rich-sounding delay with Tap Tempo, MIDI and CV inputs. It can produce a delay of up to 800ms and it comes with a VST/RTAS/AU editor, which allows you to access a number of under-the-hood features.
Moog have recently announced an exciting update to their little analogue bass monster, the Minitaur. This update will be available for free to all existing Minitaur owners and will come installed as standard with all future Minitaurs.
Yes, you heard correctly, Moog are discontinuing their range of Voyager Select keyboards - the top selling backlit analogue synth of all time. It has featured on tracks by artists such as Dr. Dre, Madonna, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga and CeeLo Green, but now this legendary range is coming to an end.
