Sub 37 Cookbook

Hello,

I have already posted this on the Moog forums, but I was given a heads up that people here might find it interesting, too...

So this is the Sub 37 Cookbook, a resource of free patches and articles for the Moog Sub 37 Synthesizer. Download (and pre-listen to) Sub 37 patches, and submit your own! The site is still relatively new and patch submissions are highly welcome! No registration required.

Go here:
Sub 37 Cookbook โ€“ Get to know your Moog Sub 37

The idea was inspired by the microKORG Cookbook, a site I browsed a lot when I was new to the microKORG.

Cheers,
Frank

Very good idea! it would be great if you can make the patches pre-listenable on the homepage though, so you can easily compare without having to click through all of them.

Most of them are, at least the ones I made myself. If somebody submits an MP3 along with the patch file, it'll also go on the page. Sometimes I try recording a demo for a submitted patch myself, but then I can't be sure if it's what the patch author had in mind.

I mean to display the sound sample on the homepage, so I don't need to open the patch page:

I agree, to listen you have to click on (more...), but I suppose it might bog the site down if it has to load a bunch of clips at once. But maybe then, it could be something like 10 patches/clips per page or something to keep it tidy. Very cool idea though!

Whats the trick to sending certain Sysex files to certain patch locations? Sorry I am new at all this.

^ Sysex files for single patches can be stored and loaded in two ways:

1 - If the sysex file was created with BUFFER SND: SEND, sending it to the synth will place it in the edit buffer, and you can save the patch to a preset location of your choice.
2 - If the sysex file was created with CUR PRESET: SEND, sending it to the synth will store it in the current preset, overwriting any patch that's already stored there.

So if you want to be safe, in case the patch was saved with CUR PRESET: SEND, select a preset where the patch can be stored before sending the sysex file to the synth.

Not a bad idea, done.

Very nice Acid Battle! I assume the acid bassline is from the Avalon?

Thank you, no the bassline at 0:30 is the Sub37

All the bass parts in this are Sub-37 along with the Horn patch. https://soundcloud.com/john-belew/never-master7-24

Snarling Pig

Has anyone tried to make a patch for the Sub 37 like Jordan Rudess' Snarling Pig patch? I searched the cookbook site, but nothing came up. It's at 7:30

It's a very different synth with a very different feature set and I suspect there's some FX there, but hey, lets try anyway. It's also a good excuse to finally try out the editor/librarian

The attached 5-minute job uses hard sync to get some of that nasal quality, helped by using the 6dB filter slope with some resonance. The resonance shapes the formant further with nasality/snarl, and using a 6dB slope lets the snarl through without dulling it. The filter EG controls the very slight sync sweep as well as a shallow filter sweep. Some multidrive is dialed in to make it a bit less polite.

It's not identical to to Mr. Rudess' piggy by any means, but it could be the pig in the neighboring pen perhaps(?) Further tweaks may bring it closer - I'll leave that to you. As a starting point, use OSC2 WAVE and FILTER RESONANCE to fine tune the base formant, and use MOD2 PITCH AMT and FILTER EG AMT to control the formant dynamics. Tweak the envelopes to suit the riff and playing style. The "Snarling Pig.SYX" file is in the attached ZIP archive below.

Thanks a lot Dr Justice! I was hoping that you'd reply. I've been following your posts on the Sub 37 patches with great interest. I'm still learning subtractive synthesis, and you've been a great help. I'll work on this tonight.
