The Moog Subharmonicon gives you a semi-modular polyrhythmic analog synthesizer employing a 6-tone sound engine and multi-layered sequencers. Allowing you to explore the world of subharmonics, polyrhythms, and the unique relationships they create.
6 Sound Sources
Featuring two analog VCO’s as well as four Subharmonic Oscillators, the Subharmonicon gives you a total of six powerful sound sources. With each subharmonic tone mathematically derived from one of the two main VCOs to give the resulting chord shapes a beautifully coherent quality.
There’s also onboard quantization so you can dial in perfect intervals every time, with selections for multiple tuning systems. Not to mention, you can choose from contemporary Equal Temperament settings. Either the heavenly intervals of Just Intonation or the unlimited freedom of no quantization at all.
What’s more, animating the Subharmonicons distinctive chord shapes can be done through a polyrhythmic pair of 4-step sequencers. You can clock each sequencer by any or all of the four Rhythm Generators. Therefore, outputting mathematical divisions of the master tempo.
Then, layer multiple Rhythm Generators on top of each other to create complex polyrhythms and discover inspiring new patterns and styles. You can also delve into the dual Envelope Generators, Moog Ladder Filter, and analog VCA of the Subharmonic. Allowing you to call up dynamic articulations ranging from lush pads and blurred edges to percussive plosives and ritualistic rhythms.
You won’t need any patching in order to start creating. However, Subharmonicon’s modular patchbay allows you to unlock worlds of new possibilities and plug into new ideas. Its 32-point 3.5mm patchbay is able to be patched into itself, expanding the Subharmonicons onboard capabilities. Alternatively, you can also interface it with the Mother-32, DFAM, or other Eurorack-compatible gear.
So, use the Moog Subharmonicon as a standalone synth with +12V DC power supply, or remove the front panel and install it into any Eurorack system.
Above all, the Moog Subharmonicon is a versatile analog polyrhythmic synth that’s equally suited for finding yourself, as well as losing yourself.
