Moog has announced the Subsequent 37 CV. They tell us that this limited-edition redesign of the ultra-powerful Sub 37 Tribute Edition analog synthesizer is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide, with the first 125 units built live on-site at Moogfest 2017. Anchored by a pair of solid aluminum side pieces inset with North American hardwood and affixed to a rugged steel and aluminum enclosure, it features four assignable CV outputs and two assignable Gate outputs for interconnectivity with large-format and Eurorack modular systems, an upgraded keybed for improved playability, a high-powered headphone amplifier for live-monitoring, and a modified analog signal path.
Cyril Lance, Moog Chief Engineer, told us, "We are really excited to incorporate community feedback into the evolution of an instrument. Adding CV interconnectivity was the starting point, but we have also increased the headroom in the mixer and significantly extended the range of Multidrive, giving the Subsequent 37 CV expanded sonic capability and modular control."
The Subsequent 37 CV's mixer now has double the headroom of the Sub 37 Tribute Edition. Taking advantage of the mixer's newfound flexibility, the gain-staging of the Ladder filter has been reshaped to boost harmonic saturation and analog compression. Completing the sonic evolution is a re-tuned Multidrive circuit that Moog says extends well beyond the grit and growl of the original Sub 37.
Subsequent 37 CV production is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. Moog Music tells us that each instrument is lovingly handcrafted by Moog employee-owners and that the first 125 units are available for purchase exclusively through GuitarCenter.com, and on-site at the Moog Pop-Up Factory during Moogfest 2017, May 18-21.
