ASHEVILLE, N.C. (October, 2010) – 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.
“Good things come in small packages – and the Slim’ is no exception”
said Moog Product Development Specialist, Steve Dunnington. “Its small stature doesn’t take away
from the massive sounds it can produce.”
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
Shipping in the 4th quarter of 2010 and priced at $849, the
Slim Phatty beefs up any table-top production environment and with the optional
rack mount kit or wood side panels, it’s equally at home in a high-powered
touring rack or a vintage synth set-up.
Its low price, ergonomic design and Little Phatty compatibility also
make it an ideal voice expander for the legions of Little Phatty owners
