Today Moog Music announced the release of two new MiniFooger pedals, the MF Chorus Bucket Brigade Time Modulator and the MF Flange Bucket Brigade Harmonic Manipulator.
The MF CHORUS is a 100% analog BBD-based time modulation pedal that is capable of a wide range of sonic shifting and manipulation in both mono and stereo output modes. A three-position Mix switch quickly transitions the effect from subtle shifting and swirling into analog vibrato. The wide-range Time and Feedback controls allow users to further customize each sound to their personal taste. Like all Minifooger Analog Effects, the MF Chorus features a dedicated expression pedal input on its rear panel. This input provides hands-free control over one parameter – the Rate knob.
The MF FLANGE is a 100% analog BBD-based harmonic manipulator pedal designed to “far exceed” the voicing and flexibility constraints of traditional flanger designs. The MF Flange features two dedicated voicing modes, vocal and traditional, which the user selects via the two-position Type switch. The wide-range Time and Feedback controls allow for fine-tuning of the MF Flange’s “sonic vocabulary,” which reaches from bright metallic modulation and classic jet flange, to chaotic pitch shifting and even analog chorus. This Minifooger also features a dedicated expression pedal input on its rear panel. On the MF Flange, this pedal input provides hands-free control over one parameter – the Time knob.
New ‘Fooger look. In addition to the release of the MF CHORUS and MF FLANGE, Moog Music has also announced a new motif for the Minifooger family of analog effects that marks a departure from the pedal’s original all-black aesthetic. Still hand-built in Asheville, NC. each Minifooger unit is housed in a compact, cast aluminum enclosure and features a 100% analog signal path, true bypass switching, optional battery power, and a single expression pedal input providing hands-free control over one specified parameter within each unit.
Pricing and Availability. The Moog Music MF Flange ($209), and MF Chorus ($209) are available now via authorized Moog dealers, or via the Moog Music store. More information is available on the MiniFoogers website.
