It'll be available exclusively to those who buy a $1500 Moogfest Engineer Pass, which gives festival attendees the chance to build the synth themselves. The Subharmonicon is inspired by early electronic instruments like the Trautonium and the Rythmicon, as well as Joseph Schillinger's Schillinger System, a theoretical composition process based on mathematics. It's a dual-oscillator semi-modular analogue design with a resonant VCF, two envelopes, built-in sequencer and VCA. Moog describes it as a "harmonic kaleidoscope that divides into itself until everything that is up becomes down." The preliminary faceplate design also shows four sub-oscillators and logic functions.
There's currently no word on the Subharmonicon receiving a full release but Moog ended up making the DFAM—a drum synth built at last year's Moogfest—available to the public earlier this year.
