Moog CP-251

Control ProcessorThe Moogerfooger CP-251 Control Processor has a series of classical circuits to produce, change, combine and rearrange control voltages and control signals with each other. In combination with one or more analogue Moogerfooger effect modules or other VC devices, the CP-251 forms an analogue modular synthesizer with the same power and versatility of a classic MOOG modular synthesizer.

  • Four channel mixer: Allows the combination of control signals to create complex effects
  • Lag processor: Deforms the control signal so that abrupt changes are slowed down to achieve glide or swoop effects.
  • Low frequency oscillator (LFO): Generates periodic control voltages from about 0.1 Hz to 50 Hz. The LFO itself can be controlled by other control voltages. With an expression pedal or other control signals, the speed can be controlled to create effects such as vibrato, trills or sirens.
  • Two signal attenuator: To reduce the control signals to adjust the strength of the effects
  • Four-way distributor: To send one control signal to as many as three busses
  • Noise generator: Provides pure noise for use as audio or control signal
  • Sample and hold: Generate traditional sample & hold effects by sampling and holding the current signal voltage, synchronised by the LFO clock. Furthermore, this circuit has a second output, wherein the sudden changes of the signal to be smoothed slightly to obtain a smoother course of the voltage levels (glide effect).
  • Including power adapter

Useful supplement to the Moogerfooger collection

Dantschge, 14.04.2011
The Moog CP-251 is a useful addition to a small Moogerfooger collection, because only with the CP-251 can the CV inputs of the Moogerfooger pedals be properly targeted and profitably addressed.

Especially for the metering of control voltages (eg from the LFO), the attenuators (damping or scaling pots) are very important. In addition, one can approximate different waveforms using the LAG level from the square wave of the LFO. The recent Moogerfoogers are equipped with extensive LFOs with all common waveforms. This feature would also do a good job of updating the CP-251.

With the Sample-and-Hold, which can be triggered by the built-in LFO, you can generate eg rhythmic, but at random random control voltage components with the appropriate input signal (eg from the noise generator).

The concatenation of the various editing tools via patchcords (I use stereo patchcords with TRS plugs as recommended in the manual) allows you to create practically all imaginable, often highly complex control voltage curves and to influence them even during the performance, so that your sound ideas are broad can implement.

The 4-channel CV mixer is a powerful tool with two attenuators, two expression pedal inputs and an extra output for the inverted humming voltage.

The workmanship is Moog-typical quite outstanding and the design of the metal housing with wooden side panels is very "analog" and noble.

The manual is just as understandable and informative as that of the other Moogerfoogers. It also contains some interesting suggestions that you would not come up with yourself so quickly.

All in all, the CP-251 is a useful addition to my Moogerfooger pedals to successfully recreate and immerse the 70s Moog sounds into my youth, when these sounds have just come up. At that time I listened fascinated to these sounds, but unfortunately I could not afford a moog synthesizer; this will be done later (albeit with the electric bass, since I can not handle keyboards as well as my bass).

An update of the LFOs to all today common waveforms, as contained in the recent, recent Moogerfoogern would be very useful and would increase the benefits of the CP-251, especially in conjunction with older Moogerfooger models again significantly. Also useful would be a MIDI control (as also included in the newer Moogerfoogern), but this would require a complete redesign of the CP-251, since so far it is purely analgoschaltungen in the CP-251.
