Those who are looking for a heavier sub-oscillator are in luck, as it’s guaranteed to get the sound booming from your woofer!
With the two thumping oscillators, a deep sub-oscillator and an additional on-board noise generator you can let the roof-raising sound creation begin.

You won’t be disappointed by the scope of features available on the Sub Phatty, giving the user control over just about every aspect of their analog productions.
The small and compact appearance is deceptive, as the delivers a high-quality control panel with many tunable dials and knobs to edit analog sounds in a modern way.
The device is extremely flexible in regards to connecting to other systems such as computers and musical equipment.
Some have critiqued the model claiming it is too simplistic, but they cannot deny the incredible power associated with Moog classic components such as the Ladder Filter and the on-board Multidrive to fuel creativity.
Sounds produced on this model are somewhat retro and have been heard before, but with a talented mind you can merge and blend 100% analog signals in a variety of ways.
A recommended buy for those needing loud and gritty sounds with the possibility of creating more subtle ones too.
