Moog Subharmonicon Semi-Modular Analog Polyrhythmic Synthesizer

Powerful system

At the heart of the Subharmonicon's sound lies two analog VCOs and four Subharmonic Oscillators. Get sonically creative with six powerful sound sources. Each Subharmonic tone is precise. They are mathematically derived from one of the two main VCOs. Because of this, you can ensure constant inspiration thanks to sublime chord shapes which offer you unparalleled, coherent results. Feel free to dial in perfect intervals via the use of the Subharmonicon's onboard quantisation system. You'll be able to create a vast array of sounds from the deep, luscious pads to hard-hitting rhythms.

Innovative rhythms

You'll be able to use the pair of polyrhythmic four-step sequencers to animate the Subharmonicon's innovative chord shapes. Create the most complex,varied and intricate polyrhythms by layering rhythm generators on top of each other. Each sequencer can be clocked by one or any of the four generators, offering mathematical divisions of the overall master tempo.

Instant creativity

No patching is necessary to start creating. Jump right in thanks to Moog. It's important that you get to grips with the Subharmonicon's modular patchbay. Think of this as your key into a world full of endless possibilities. The 32 point patch bay can be routed into itself. This is ideal for expanding on the already vast capabilities of the Subharmonicon. You're also free to connect your Mother-32, DFAM or any other Eurorack compatible equipment.
