Product information - Moog Subharmonicon

Analog Synthesizer

With the Subharmonicon, Moog expands its semi-modular instruments with an expressive analog synthesizer. No less than two main oscillators and four sub-oscillators provide a very broad and radiant sound foundation. This results in lush chords, pulsating sound carpets, massive basslines, and generic sounds. The waveforms of the main oscillators are switchable between square, sawtooth, and a mixture. The four sub-oscillators each have the sawtooth waveform, but their frequency and level are freely definable. What should not be missing in a Moog synthesizer is the famous 24dB lowpass filter, it works in a wide frequency range and goes down low, the resonance extends into self-oscillation. Two attack/decay envelopes are permanently assigned to filter and VCA respectively, in this way sounds can be realized that range from percussive to floating in to long decaying. The Subharmonicon has no direct ancestor in that sense, but is largely inspired by the historical sound generators Trautonium (1930), Rythmicon (1931) and the Schillinger system (also 1930s).

The Sequencer

The sequencer section of the Moog Subharmonicon is composed of three units: there are two four-step sequencers for the oscillators and one called Polyrhythm. Sequencer 1 controls the pitches of oscillator 1 and its two sub-oscillators, which of the three follows the pitch control is switchable. Sequencer 2 controls the pitches of oscillator 2 and its sub-oscillators; again, which of the three is coupled to the pitch control is switchable. Polyrhythm produces a different timing or divider ratio for each control and is applicable to Sequencer 1 and/or 2. This results in very lively and varied patterns that, in the overall context with the sound generation, create a complex and easy-to-use whole. If this is not enough or you want to try something different, you can connect a MIDI keyboard or use more complex sequencers from a modular system to control the Moog Subharmonicon.

The patch field

With a total of 32 inputs and outputs, the patch panel expands the sonic possibilities many times over, turning the Subharmonicon into a semi-modular synthesizer. About half of all connections are dedicated to the sequencers and the clock generator; the other half is for the sound generating and sound shaping elements. Here you have access to the pulse width modulation, the VCA (e.g. for sideband modulation) and the filter (FM!), among others. With creative patching or also the integration of Eurorack modules, the expression possibilities increase again.
