OVERVIEW

Genuine analog Moog sound and capabilities made affordable.

Thanks to the Moog Slim Phatty, real Moog sound now fits your back pack and your budget. The Slim Phatty's 100% analog signal path, intuitive user interface, rugged construction and rich MIDI, USB, and Control Voltage functionality make it a must-have for producers, touring musicians and DJs.

At just 17" wide, it goes where no other Moog has gone before. Earth-shaking basses, scorching leads and more are now housed in a high-quality instrument ideal for laptop artists and space conscious musical road warriors.

Based on the powerful Little Phatty sound engine, the Slim Phatty is the latest descendant of the iconic Minimoog Model D and features the classic Moog Ladder Filter, the touchstone of analog sound design.

In addition to shaping the sound of its on-board oscillators, the Slim Phatty's filter is a valuable production tool that can be used to process external audio, sweetening your favorite audio source with everything from smooth analog warmth through wet, resonant filter sweeps.

The Slim Phatty's convenient size makes it an ideal voice expander for your existing gear, with two oscillators of massive Moog sound that are always just a MIDI cable away. A new Tuning Scale feature and editor allows easy exploration of alternate scales and tunings. Microtonal, just intonation, quarter-tone, world music scales and more make the Slim Phatty an international traveler. Good thing it has a universal power supply!

In addition to the world of MIDI and USB gear, the Slim Phatty's Control Voltage inputs give it unlimited realms of expression and sound design possibilities. "Modular synth" style patching with Moogerfooger effects processors, the CP-251 Control Voltage Processor and other Moog synths (even The Moog Guitar!) creates soundscapes previously available only on large modular systems. Connecting to the Etherwave Plus Control Voltage Theremin or the MP-201 Multi-Pedal adds unique and intuitive new modes of expression.

    Comments about Moog Slim Phatty:

    The third one of these worked great. The first two had the infamous stuck note problem after warming up. Quality control at Moog seems to be non existient. I had problems with several Moog Minitaur's also and eventually gave up on them. The reason i gave it 4 stars is because If you get hold of a working one they are very nice.I would be very hesitant to buy another Moog product again.

    Comments about Moog Slim Phatty:

    After receiving it and checking it out, I found that it is built well, well designed, and easy to use... Except where is the documentation --- if you don't use the editor. Does the editor have a liability with it... You can not produce music without paying royalities. I Do Not Do That... Check my past... I wait until The President calls me a dog on a another Kraft Music, Hall of Fame--NO, or another GRAMMY Celebration, writing me off--YES.. That's when they get it... the royalities. That is much better. It promotes Americian Policies and Politics, World Wide. It MUST be GOOD for the Ecomony. Just check that out yourself.


    Now, on to the next part.

    I use a Carbon 61 Midi Keyboard, it works Fine. And THEN I put either: Mod Tone - Chorus, V-Tone Acoustic, Behringer - Digital Reverb or V-Amp, to get the sounds I want from the Moog - SlimPhatty. You just connect them as you wish to the Audio Output of the Moog from the Input of the Guitar Fhplanger, and Chain Them is you Wish... on to the Ampliifier. This seems to work fairly well and provides a good selection of Noise (Sounds) for you. And what is Music... it's noise that you like. That's what I said way back them, 1964,1965.

    Enjoy.

    Great variation on the Phatty theme...

    Comments about Moog Slim Phatty:

    This is a great piece of Moog gear...especially if you already have a good MIDI controller/keyboard set-up and don't need the keys that go with the LP.The SP does run a little hot, but that is to be expected after running for a few hours, especially in such a small enclosure. Again, I think the Little Phatty has more value (simply because of the keys), but the Slim Phatty is a great, small alternative.
