Moog MF Trem Minifooger Pedal
MF Trem is an analog tremolo pedal based around a balanced modulator
and Sub Audio VCO. This unique design creates a wide range of tremolo
effects that are based on phase cancellation and addition. Create
classic optical and hard tremolo effects that are reactive to harmonic
content, or push up the depth control and shift into the beginnings of
lush phasing and chorus. The variable Shape control interacts directly
with Tone and Mix to craft subtle swells and gallops to rhythmic
percussive, and swirling effects. An expression pedal input adds control
over tremolo Speed for beautiful, hands-free swells and rotary effects.
SHAPE- Sweeps between modulation waveshapes. Center
position has a smooth rise and fall. This is great for creating optical
tremolo sounds. Hard right has a hard impact followed by a smooth
decline. This creates abrupt and percussive behavior that is very
musical when paired with the Tone knob. Hard left has a smooth lift and
abrupt drop off which creates a sound similar to a reverse effect at
slower speeds and a rotary speaker at higher speeds.
SPEED- Sets the overall Tremolo rate. At slower
settings the sound is swirling, lush, and transformative. As the Speed
is increased the sound becomes tighter and more like a rotary speaker.
The Shape and Depth controls will directly affect the perceived speed
and rhythm of your Tremolo as they are increased from minimum to maximum
DEPTH- At minimum the tremolo effect is subtle and
mostly dry. As Depth is increased more tremolo effect is blended in the
mix causing phase cancellation and addition effects. At center position
the sound will begin to gallop and swing. This impact on the sound
varies significantly depending on Speed. At maximum position, the
tremolo speed doubles and all sound is sent through the Tone control.
TONE- This control affects the Tremolo signal only
leaving the dry signal untouched. At maximum, all frequencies are
affected by the tremolo. As the Tone control position is decreased, the
effect of the tremolo becomes more-subtle. From the mid position down,
the Tone control can be used to dial in sounds that impact only low
frequencies in your instrument or to shape classic rotary swirl and
EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT:Assigned to Speed. Use it for swells and transitions between high and low settings.
