moog sub phatty or Novation bass station 2?

Slight apples to oranges, but considering a hardware synth ( in the $1000 or lower range) for lower end, and bass frequencies. I was jacked up on a possible moog sub phatty, but the novation bass stations has intrigue.

I'd be grateful for any expert opinions, personal preferences, and subjective thoughts on the strengths and weakness of these 2 devices, and the better bang/value for the buck.


1) moog sub phatty
2) Novation bass station 2
3) reason/necktar/with choice of RE's and stock synths
4) neither

I read Moog and I had to think of my Clavia Nord Micro Modular.

First thing you have to ask yourself is how important hands-on control is. The Sub Phatty has pretty much one control for each vital function on the front panel. The Bass Station II has shared controls between i.e. OSC1 and 2, ENV1 and 2, etc.

On the other hand, the Bass Station II has some other stuff like an additional LFO, and additional filter (based on the 303), a multimode filter, and some other nice features.

Lastly, if you want the Moog sound, only the Moog will do. If you don't have that specific preference, I'd really recommend you to try them both in a shop and make your opinion after playing with them.
