3 very similar Moog Sub* 37 models
I own a Moog Subsequent 37. As 2018 closes, it is the top of Moog’s mono/paraphonic keyboard synthesizer line, since they discontinued the Voyagers and Minimoogs. I consider the Subsequent 37 to be a must-have synth, still there is a huge gap between a ~$1500 Subsequent 37 and Moog’s newest synth, the polyphonic ~$6000 8 voice/$8000 16 voice Moog One. Will Moog bridge that product line gap in 2019 with a more formidable mono/paraphonic synthesizer, a lower cost poly or both, only time will tell.
In addition to the Subsequent 37, there are a couple discontinued models which are very similar. The limited edition Subsequent 37 CV has a silver color scheme. It also has 4 assignable CV and 2 assignable Gate outputs for interconnectivity with large-format and Eurorack modular systems. Otherwise it is the same as the Subsequent 37 except for those features.
Both Subsequent 37 models have an upgraded keybed for improved playability, a high-powered headphone amplifier for live-monitoring, and a modified analog signal path compared to their forerunner, the Sub 37 Tribute Edition.
The Sub 37 has the standard black color scheme and does not have the upgrades mentioned in the previous paragraph. The Sub 37 was a major redesign of Moog’s Sub Phatty.
It is notable that the Sub 37 was also the first Moog synthesizer in over 30 years to play more than one note at a time. Of all Sub* 37 models, the Sub 37 is the most common one.
Strongly recommended that you download the newest OS, unless you hate bug fixes, stability and new features.
