Based on the best selling Moogerfooger MF-102, you know the Moog MiniFooger Ring Modulator Pedal is going to be good… and you’d be right. A unique tone voicing circuit makes it easy to get exactly what you want from the pedal with everything from octave and choral dissonance to harmonic undertones and synthesized lead lines, all within easy reach. Add an expression pedal and you have hands-free Frequency control for making sweeps, pitch shifts, and playing between two scales mid-performance. Another small but important feature of this ring modulator pedal over others is that it can be battery-powered.
Overview of Controls
A control whose range has been refined to be extremely musical, it dictates the frequency of a carrier oscillator to the root note in a scale. Within the chosen scale lower settings will produce chorus and octaves on notes, once you step out of that scale you’ll get beating and extreme dissonance. Set to the middle position, you’ll get a buzzy, tight sound that works well coupled with an overdrive pedal, for octave-fuzz. Throw the control all the way and the sound becomes synthesized and robotic.
Hook an expression pedal up to the Moog MF Ring Modulator Pedal and you can specify two independent playing keys, as well as utilise sci-fi swells, bit reduction effects, and whammy dives.
The Moog MiniFooger Ring Modulator Pedal’s governing control knob, Mix sets the balance between how much modulation and how much clean signal is outputted. Set Mix between low and medium, and the pedal will accompany and accentuate notes, while increasing it will produce more synthesized and bell-type sounds, and set to maximum you’ll be left with unpredictable synthesized and electronic sounds.
A control that applies to the effected signal only, you can dial in high frequency chime and buzz, through to a warmer, more musical character. Excellent for adding texture to your sound, you can easily dial in sounds for lead lines, bends, and chords.
