Looks like NAMM is July 21-23. Maybe we will know something then..

You ever notice how this forum is usually the last place that gets these announcements? I think you can learn more about what Moog is up to through their facebook and twitter pages....they probably reach more people.

Introducing the MF-108M Cluster Flux.
The latest addition to our Moogerfooger family of effects

What is it?? It's an analog BBD based chorus flanger w/ Tap Tempo modulation for guitar players, and extensive MIDI control for keyboardists, recording, etc. This new Moogerfooger takes the Chorus/Flanger to a completely new level, significantly expands the musician's sonic palette; and is CV as well as MIDI controllable.

This will be a limited availability product. The MF-108M Cluster Flux uses BBD (Bucket Brigade Device) chips that were specifically designed for the short delay times associated with chorus / flanger type effects. But like all BBD devices (e.g. the MF-104 Analog Delay) the availability of this chip is very limited. We are constantly looking for more supply but as with the MF-104, the supply will be limited by chip availability.

We expect to begin shipping in late summer. Image is attached. We will be running an inside back-page ad in Guitar Player in the month of August. A PDF of the ad copy is attached.

Features:
· The Cluster Flux provides warm, great sounding analog chorus / flanger / vibrato effects. In addition, it has a much wider (and wilder) range of modulated delay line effects than traditional chorus / flangers due to the extended range of front panel controls, the multi-waveform LFO, and the extensive CV and MIDI control.
· The LFO has six waveforms. Use sine or triangle for classic chorus flanger effects. Check out the Sample and Hold, Square, Sawtooth, and Ramp for radical new sounds. There are no analog chorus / flangers that have a sample and hold capability
· In Flange mode, you adjust the delay time from approx. .6 to 10 milliseconds. In Chorus mode, from approx. 5 to 50 milliseconds.
· The Feedback control is continuously bi-polar for both non-inverted and inverted feedback for flanging with even or odd harmonics.
· The MF-108M has both input drive and output level control so you can use it from instrument to line level.
· Parameters are MIDI controllable and the MF-108M will ship with an application editor for managing the array of possibilities. Just one example of the many applications: Control the delay time with MIDI notes for "tuned" flanger comb-filter effects.
· There's a Feedback Insert jack on the back for external processing of just the wet signal just after the BBD's.
· The design includes high voltage MN3007 BBD's for their superior headroom and excellent signal to noise ratio.

Our formal introduction will be on June 17th Our press release will come at that time. Feel free to contact your good customers for pre-orders. Date for your website is June 17th.

Is there an LFO out?
Music can Name the Unnamable and Communicate the Unknowable.

'I am... everything is... changed... they're calling... your face... interwoven... who is...' Patient mumbles inaudibly to a tune (sounds like 'Thanks for the memory).

MIDI-sync'able voltage controlled flanger. The other end of the rate knob goes to divisions of the current clock or tap tempo.


Well, not quite :). Looks like a very log-scaled rate control, but I bet that's where the clock division comes from when MIDI sync'd (a la M.MuRF)

this sounds like its going to be expensive...midi AND bbd! i may have to let go of a fooger (or two :shock: ) to get one of these beauties. ive been shopping around for cheap choruses lately, flangers too actually, but this trumps all. those lfo wave forms are very exciting!
My modular so far: Q104, Q106 x2, Q107, Q108, Q109 x2 , Q116, Q118, Q127 w/Q140, Q130, STG Wave Folder, Mixer and Mankato playing with Moog Voyager, VX-351, CP-251, MF-104M x2 ( STEREO!) Volca Beats and Bass, Arturia Beat step

Probably won't get one of these. It does nothing I can't do already with the gear I already have. (And it isn't the only chorus/flanger that has S/H. Just the only stand alone unit to have it.) And all the hype about limited just means too expensive to me. Now, if it came out in MU Format, that would be a different story.

And there are companies that can manufacture the chips they need so they are not in such short supply. PanJit Americas comes instantly to mind. (We have been toying with reproducing CEM equivalent chips with them.)
