There was a leak last month in a Polish magazine about the forthcoming Moog Subsequent 25. Now the full details are up on the internet so let’s check it out.
Moog Subsequent 25
It is, as we suspected, the follow up to the Sub Phatty. It’s the same size and shape, same layout but gets a wooden cheek upgrade and looks splendid in black with the silver behind.
This new version does bring in some useful features. It has twice the headroom for better access to a wider range of tones. The low end has been enhanced by reshaping the gain staging in the Ladder Filter to boost harmonic saturation and analog compression. The Multidrive circuit has been retuned to extend it beyond the “grit and growl” of the Sub Phatty. The keybed has been upgraded and so has the headphone amplifier. And it comes with a bunch of new presets.
But probably the key new feature is that it now has a Duophonic mode like the Subsequent 37.
Otherwise, it’s the same great 2 oscillator analog synthesizer with a sub-oscillator and noise. Classic subtractive architecture with the Ladder Filter, envelope and LFO for modulation.
The price according to AmericanMusical.com is $849 and should be available on the 24th January.
