Based on a balanced modulator and Sub Audio VCO, the uniquely designed Moog MiniFooger Tremolo Pedal offers a wide range of tremelo effects through the use of phase cancellation and addition. The tremelo can range from harmony-dependant optical and hard effects, to lush phasing and chorus effects, with just a rotation of the Depth control, while the Shape control works with Tone and Mix to offer subtle swells and gallops, to percussive and swirling effects. Furthermore you can add an expression pedal to gain hands-free control of Speed swells and rotary effects.
Overview of Controls
Control the wave shape of the modulation with the Moog MF Tremolo Pedal’s Shape control. One extreme gives you a smooth lift and abrupt drop off, which combined with the Speed control, gives a reverse effect at slower speeds and rotary speaker effect at faster speeds. The other extreme gives a hard impact with a smooth decline, which paired with the Tone control gives an abrupt and percussive, but musical, sound. Set in the middle, Shape will give you a smooth rise and fall, for optical tremolo sounds.
Setting the rate of the tremolo, at slower speeds you’ll find swirling, lush sound, while faster speeds offer a tighter sound that is similar to a rotary speaker. Combining Speed and Depth controls alter the tremolo’s perceived speed and rhythm.
Subtle and dry when set to its minimum, the Depth control mix more of the tremolo effect as it is increased, providing more gallop and swing, which gives way to phase cancellation and addition effects at its most heightened level.
The Tone knob controls which frequencies are affected by the tremolo. Thrown all the way all frequencies will be affect, as you ease off, the effect becomes more subtle with only low frequencies affected, or shapes a classic rotary swirl and phase-like sounds.
EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT
The Moog MiniFooger Tremolo Pedal also offers an expression pedal input, which assigned to Speed gives hands-free control of swells, rotary effects and transitions.
