Boost Your Music Production: Integrating Moog Sub with Logic Pro X
Discover how to integrate the Moog Sub into your Logic Pro X studio for an enhanced sound experience. This guide walks you through every step, from registration to music production. Create your signature sound today!


Music production involves more than just hardware and software; it's about creating an immersive sound experience. That's where external instruments come into play. They can bring a new dimension to your music, providing additional layers of complexity and originality. Among these, the Moog Sub is one piece of equipment that has made waves in music production circles for its analog sound and comprehensive capabilities.

In this post, we'll walk you through how you can integrate the Moog Sub into your Logic Pro X studio for a much richer sound and enhanced musical experience. Getting started might seem daunting, but once you've set up your external equipment, you'll notice a big difference in the quality of your music production.

Step 1: Registering the Moog Sub

Your first step in this journey is registering your Moog Sub with the manufacturer. Visit, navigate to their 'Register Product' page, follow the on-screen instructions and complete the registration process. You will need to provide information like the serial number, purchase data, and your contact details.

Why register, you might ask? Well, registering your Moog Sub allows you to receive software updates and valuable resources to help you better understand and use your instrument. In addition, it ensures that you have warranty coverage—just in case.

Step 2: Installing and Updating the Sub Editor Software

The next important step is to install the Sub editor software, available from Moog's website. This software is responsible for connecting your Moog Sub to your computer and facilitating communications between your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and your external instrument.

Once the software is installed, ensure it's updated to the latest version. This is to guarantee optimal performance between your Logic Pro X and your Moog Sub. Keeping your software up to date also ensures you can use the latest features and advancements—greater functionality, more sound effects, and improved efficiency in operation.

Step 3: Setting up the Moog Sub in Logic Pro X

Now that your software side is sorted, it's time to set up your Moog Sub in Logic Pro X. Launch the DAW and create a new project. When you are prompted to choose a track type, select 'external MIDI.' You will then see a list of MIDI destinations—choose Moog Sub from this list.

Next step is to make a physical connection between your computer and the Moog Sub. A simple USB cable will get the job done. After you've connected the two, configure the audio input in Logic Pro X to make sure that it's picking up the signal from your Moog Sub.

Step 4: Creating and Configuring the Track

With your Moog Sub now well-integrated into your set-up, it's time to start making music. Create a new track for the Moog Sub, checking to ensure that you can hear the output from the instrument.

Your Moog Sub editor isn't just for setting up the instrument in your DAW; it can also serve as an audio effect. This allows you to add a unique sound character to the track you're recording with the Moog Sub. Don't shy away from recording and editing audio using the editor; the creative possibilities are boundless.

Step 5: Saving and Reusing Patches

One of the coolest features in Logic Pro X is the automatic saving of patches. Whenever you adjust the settings of your Moog Sub, Logic Pro X immediately creates a patch reflecting those changes.

This is an excellent feature to remember as it enables you to easily recall previously used patches for each project. Therefore, when you discover a unique sound configuration for the Moog Sub, Logic Pro X has you covered by allowing you to save and reproduce that sound in future projects.


We have walked you through the steps to set up the Moog Sub in Logic Pro X—from registering your instrument to creating and saving patches. Our guide is intended to help you make the most out of your Moog Sub and take your music production to the next level.

Remember, like any musical instrument, understanding and mastering the Moog Sub takes time and practice. So, treat this as an opportunity to explore new sonic possibilities and let your creativity reign. Who knows? Your Moog Sub may be the secret weapon that sets your music apart!
