Moog Subsequent 37 vs Subsequent 25 vs Sub Phatty

Comparing three of Moog's most popular synths.

The Moog Subsequent 25 appears to be a compact, less expensive option than the popular Subsequent 37.  However, the Sub 25 may be better seen as a successor to the Sub Phatty.   Let's take a look at a blow by blow comparison of features of these three Moog synths:

All three synths feature many similarites in their core architecture and sound, starting with two variable shape VCO analog oscillators plus a sub oscillator and noise generator.   They are all monophonic synths with 2-note duophonic/paraphonic play capability.   They all feature Pitchbend and Mod Wheels for performance control.  

Here's a look at some of the features that differ from synth to synth:
