Moog MF-107

This one sent my way via diablo guapo. Did JRR just slip the MF-107? : )

"Moog MF-107 FreqBox MoogerFooger
[mf107freqbox] $339.00USD
Moog MF-107 FreqBox MoogerFooger

It’s here--the newest addition to the Moogerfooger line of analog effects. The MF-107 FreqBox will blow you away! it’s unlike anything else out there. The FreqBox does not actually modify the audio input signal. Inside the FreqBox is a Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) which is modulated by the sound source input—an Audio Modulated VCO! The result is an amazing array of effects that were once only possible with a complex modular synth setup—everything from fuzz-like distortion to what product development engineer Steve Dunnington calls “cataclysmic timbral morphing” A true “freak box”!

Here are some specs:

* Accepts instrument level and line level inputs
* Frequency and waveform controls in the VCO section
* VCO can be frequency modulated by the audio signal
* Envelope follower and mix controls for even greater sonic enhancement
* Housed in the super-durable, classic Moogerfooger enclosure"

  3. Moog should paint it yellow and call it a butt-fucker.

    Just like Apple took Cisco's iPhone trademark.

  4. Doktor Future: Have you taken your medication today? You seem to have a bit of coprolalia acting up there...

    Anyhoo this effect doesn't seem very similar to Metasonix stuff to me... no tubes for one thing, and the oscillator should track pitch-CV to a greater extent also ;-)

    BTW there are some VERY nice features which are not mentioned in the "release" - but you can hear some of them in the audio demo.

    "and the oscillator should track pitch-CV to a greater extent also ;-)"


    I don't see anything about pitch to CV conversion in that description. It says that the audio modulates the VCO, which to me means that the envelope is routed to the VCO's frequency control.

  8. Maybe a frequency shifter? The DACS frequency shifter has VCO's and stuff.

    Too good to be true.

  13. ok, take a clooser look at the pic - especially the big knobs: the ones on the left side are not reflected on the black metal plate, while all other knobs have reflections ... maybe a fake?

    Man, that DACS thing is about the fugliest piece of gear I've seen in a while. Whats with the 80s graphics?

    The 107 is just an oscillator with an envelope follower, not a ring modulator. I don't really see any similarities.
