New Moogerfooger Suggestion

Post by jpromano78 » Wed Aug 17, 2011 3:14 pm

I'm a songwriter/producer/guitarist... I have a Mopho Keyboard which I love to play with a Moogerfooger FreqBox connected to it, I use an expression pedal connected to the frequency input on the Moogerfooger. I use this setup for improvisational jams as well as to produce electro/dub-step/tech-house tracks in Ableton Live and Logic.

I really haven't experimented with any of the other Moogerfoogers Available but I got a few hundred dollars that I can use to add another Moogerfooger to my set up... The question is.. based upon my set up what Moogerfooger should I jump on? My initial thought was not to go for the Low Pass Filter Moogerfooger as I already have a Low Pass Filter on my Mopho Keyboard.

Any serious suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :mrgreen:

Not quite. For $299 they'll sell you a Ring Modulator plus an expression pedal (which normally goes for $40) plus a dual 10-foot cable and a T-shirt and other stuff.

I think it might be worthwhile to phone them and ask them for a price on just the ring modulator without the other stuff. They may well be prohibited from advertising it for less than $289.

If You are happy with your Mopho filter then don't get a MF101, but You might want to check it out somewhere (at a store, rent it from Your local distributor etc.) because You may find that the Moog filter sound suits You much better, but that's just a matter of taste. Also You might want a filter to put after the Freqbox to tame it's wild high harmonics (add envelope following and You might get some cool talking leeds and bases). Always think about the combinations and possible connections/interactions between different devices when choosing next Moogerfooger, not just the effect itself.

If You are into sonic exploration and like You sounds on the weird/sick/twisted side as well as a nice tremolo and Osc Out and LFO out to add to Your Moogerfooger setup then go for the MF102. When I first tested a few Moogerfoogers I didn't like the RingMod one bit, it was to sick for me, I bought a 103 Phaser then which I find "too nice" at the moment ;-) But as I got deeper into the world of modular synthesis, soundscapes, effects I found that the 102 very very cool.

You might also want to consider the MIDI MuRF (mine arrived last week and I love it). When I was considering the MuRF some time ago I though that it was a "one-trick-pony" just doing some resonant bleep patterns. But now that I have it and I sync it to midi clock with my drums I find it suuuuper cool and it has a lot of potential. If You are a producer/song writer You'll find the MIDI ability of the MuRF to be a great thing in the production environment.

Hope I helped.

God d'*#%!!!

I´m just about to buy a FreqBox, and now you get me all worked up about the Ring Mod. :evil:

Well, it´s next in line after a CP-251. The plan is Lowpass (which I´ve already got), FreqBox (getting one next week), CP-251 (shortly thereafter), Ring Mod (a few months away), Phaser, MidiMurf, then it´s a dead race between another CP-251 and FreqBox, MP-201 and Delay. We´ll see in a year what I "need" :wink: then. But a Moogertron is what I´m aiming for. Tallyhooo!!! :lol:

Thats how you do it...you email them. I got my 101 for 225, 103 for 250, I think the 105m was like 389. My Voyager Select with VX351 was 2999, and a Roland Fantom G8 (for my father) was 2999 also. I wish I would have found them before I bought the 104z and 107 and cp251 I woudl have saved a bundle. All that savings goes right back into the synth (more Moog stuff).

Even the local Music Store's Roland Rep said he had no idea how they could let the Fantom go for that low.

The only thing they really can't come off of Moog wise is stuff like rack shelves, hardshell cases, etc.


They probably are prohibited from advertising their prices. I estinated that back in 2004, dealers made 800 dollars off the sale of a Voyager Performer after they bought it at cost and marked it up.

There might be someone who can match those prices, but I haven't found them yet.

M Bloom,
Basically, once you try them out, you have to just say Fluxit and get them all. Some have gone as far as having one for each stereo chanel. I can really see how you need a set of foogers for each instrument you are going to have going at the same time. For example, I delay a sequence and I want to play a theremin part...I have the need for a delay on the theremin. Or I have to delay the Voyager's lead.

I need a 102/103/104 just for the Rhodes.

Really, you have to cancel your life insurance, get a second mortgage, get some personal and student loans, and then you can have just a "small" modular, maybe perhaps for the left channel. hehehe




Good luck!


Edit: Im not overly thrilled with the running my bass into a ringmod. I use mine for lots of other stuff though. THe MMurf and the bass sound freqing classic together.

Well, EricK, I guess it´s all downhill from here then. Better just lean back and enjoy the ride. :)

I'm running out of space too.

The space at the bottom of the second rack is reserved for some guitar pedals. If I was to get a 108M I would have to build a third rack, I plan on getting a dotcom sequencer and a vintage oscilloscope in the third of forth rack ;-)
