Moog Music now offers operating system v. 1.03c for the Little Phatty Stage and Tribute Edition synthesizers. This new system introduces several features that will enhance functionality and support the recently-released Little Phatty Editor-Librarian software.
One of the new features is Poly mode, which is used to set up multiple Moog synths as a polyphonic stack. Each connected synth supplies a voice, and Poly mode allows you to command up to 16 analog voices. Since MIDI control numbers are consistent between the Little Phatty and Voyager, parameter changes affect all voices simultaneously. Poly mode works with the Little Phatty, the Minimoog Voyager, and the Voyager Rack Mount Edition. Either a Minimoog Voyager or a Little Phatty can be used as the master keyboard.
The company has also updated the preset save routine; now, changes to the user interface allow you to see which preset currently occupies a memory location. Other updated features include a new keyboard priority setting that allows you to set a different keyboard priority, which is saved per patch; Modulation Wheel and Filter Cutoff parameters that now send and receive high-resolution, 14-bit MIDI CC messages; MIDI functions that have been consolidated to one menu; and MIDI Merge.
