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.
