Nope, the word I got is it has been pushed back to at least June 27th, but more likely the first week of July. I was one of the first 30 to order.

Originally it was supposed to go into production first week of May, but Stacy at Moog is now saying production starts first week of June... wish I knew why (maybe they are recovering from Moogfest? maybe they've wasted all of their resources on that stupid ridiculous glorious :roll: one-off Emerson Modular?)

The release date is supposedly coming up in August/September now. This is still a great looking synth.

Yeah, based on a few posts from Amos they are in production now. I'm sure the demand is far greater than the supply. The first preorders might get theirs though.

Yay! Finally! I should be seeing mine in the first shipment soon then. I will immediately be making a video for Youtube as soon as it arrives, so if there is anything you all would like to see in the video as I explore the Sub 37 Tribute, please let me know here.

Can you please do lots of stuff with the LFO modulation and the looping envelopes? I'm curious how fast the LFOs can go, and how it sounds with Filter FM. Do some punchy basses and things to show the envelope speeds and stuff.

It is. But man, that Pro 2 sure looks good, too! This will be a tough decision. We're lucky to be spoiled for choices nowadays, I suppose.

I cancelled my sub37 before the pro 2 was announced. I needed the money, but I am glad I did as I will probably buy the pro 2 once I sell a bunch of stuff...

They both look good. I don't see any overlap between the two.

Now the question is, for me, if you own a Little Phatty, and you own a Mopho and Tetra, are the Pro 2 and Sub 37 really worth your money?

I think the Pro 2 probably is, as it's the deluxe Mopho with digital oscillators. Seems to have a completely new character, and a ton of bells and whistles. I haven't made my mind up on the Sub 37. I want one, but I'm not sure if the extra knobs, extra distortion, and paraphonic capabilities really make it worth it for me-- especially since the resale of Little Phattys is ridiculously low now (I see them for $600 now).

Over on the Moogmusic Forums, users are saying that Sweetwater has contacted them today and that their Sub 37s have arrived and are being shipped out to them immediately. Unfortunately, no word from Guitar Center for me, so I'm still waiting... :|

EDIT: Just called Guitar Center and they said they are getting the first shipment of 20 units on August 1st, then their remaining allotment of 30 more on August 8th. So I guess mine will be in the August 8th shipment. I've waited this long, I guess 3 more weeks won't make a difference... It's just that, I've never pre-ordered a musical instrument before, I've always waited until it was out in the real-world for testing; in addition, this is my first Moog synth, so I'm pretty anxious I guess!

That's amazing news!
I don't know where I stand though as I'm in the uk but the distro said I have one earmarked and I pre ordered very early. Just a question of how far the uk are down the list.
Getting pretty amped for this again.

so next time don't preorder, wait it out and let life move along until it appears in a local store. No anxiety, and no checking forums every two days and call dealers over and over.

Except this is an extremely limited edition synth (won't be appearing in stores; all pre-orders are sold out from what I was told by Moog) and it is the "Moog" I've been waiting for (right price for the right features) so well worth the wait and tiny bit of anxiety... but thanks for your concern.
