A uniquely designed pedal, the Moog MiniFooger Boost allows you to choose between VCA and OTA signal paths. Utilising the sound produced by your guitar and amp, this pedal cultivates a boutique sound and responsiveness, whilst also bringing out the best tone possible from your other pedals. Add an expression pedal to the Boost, via the bespoke input, and you’ll access higher gain values than are available from the panel alone, as well as giving you a hands-free, tone enhancing volume pedal or sweepable-gain boost pedal.
Overview of Controls
Flick the Moog MiniFooger Boost’s Boost switch into VCA mode (the down position) and throw the Gain to maximum and you’ll get a tone with a tighter bottom, focused mids, and an open top end. Put the Boost switch into clipped OTA mode (up position) and the sound becomes creamier, lightly compressed and puts more emphasis on the midrange.
As mentioned above, putting the Moog MiniFooger Boost Pedal’s Boost switch into the down position will activate VCA mode, which gives a clean, articulate enhancement with a subtle 6dB boost (12dB+ with expression) to mirror the tone of a boutique amplifier. Clipped OTA mode is activated when you position the Boost switch up, which gives a 12dB of boost (18dB+ with expression) for a creamy tone that’s perfect for subtle bite and drive to singing leads.
Set low, the Tone control fattens up the sound of your amp, smoothing out brittle-sounding top ends. Thrown the other way Tone will open up your sound, for increased articulation and detailing. Highs become sweeter, mids more focussed, and lows tighter.
The Boosts output can be trimmed easily with the Level control, whilst retaining gain colouration.
EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT
The expression pedal input on the Moog MF Boost Pedal is assigned to the Gain control, which, when set to its maximum, enables expression to be used as a volume pedal. With the Boost switch set to clipped OTA mode and Gain set to the middle position, an expression pedal can be used to swell boost levels in and out. With Gain set to its maximum, an expression pedal will add more input gain than is available from the panel alone, to overdrive your amp.
