At NAMM 2020, Moog releases the Subsequent 25 analog Synthesizer, the successor of the beloved Sub Phatty with new features and improvements

Leaks have been around for a long time, but now the release seems to be 100% true. A new leak from the US music retailer American Musical Supply shows the entire feature set of the new Moog Subsequent 25 Synthesizer. Subsequent 25 is a new compact Synthesizer that builds on the success of the award-winning Sub-Phatty by implementing the paraphonic functionality of duo mode, upgrading the woodside pieces and featuring the beloved Subsequent series improvements.

It features 2 oscillators, 1 Sub Oscillator, and 1 noise generator.  These are sent to a classic Moog Ladder filter with 6/12/18/24dB per octave slopes. The developers reshaped the gain staging in the Ladder Filter to boost harmonic saturation and analog compression, resulting in an overall richer low end. Also onboard is a new high-powered headphone amplifier strong enough to drive the most demanding headphones.

On the modulation side, it offers 2 ADSR envelopes and one LFO with triangle, square, sawtooth, ramp and sample & hold waveforms. On the final stage, it includes a re-tuned analog multidrive that extends well beyond the original grit and growl of the Sub Phatty. Like the Sub Phatty, you can also save presets inside the Sub 25 (4 banks à 4 presets). It features for this  brand new presets that have been optimized to take full advantage of the Subsequent 25’s upgraded circuitry.
