Moog MF-102

Ring ModulatorThe fully analogue ring modulator splits the sound into two signals and uses an internal carrier oscillator to spread single tones in the frequency spectrum. The higher the carrier frequency, the more the new tones differ from each other. The effects range from a slow, velvety tremolo and the chains of a china gong to the classic "outer space" sounds. The LFO (low frequency oscillator) moreover contributes trill, vibrato and siren effects.

  • Body: Black user interface with hardwood side panels - outstanding analogue design
  • Dimensions: 22.8 x 15.2 x 6.3 cm
  • Net weight: Approx. 1.0 kg
  • Cargo weight: Approx. 2 kg, including power supply and instruction manual
  • Power supply: 9V AC power adapter

User interface:

  • LFO Amount: Knob of the LFO output signal, control of the carrier oscillator
  • Square/ sine: Switch for rectangular and sinus waveform
  • Rate: Knob for changing the LFO frequency between 0.1 Hz and 25 Hz
  • Drive: Knob controlling the input level
  • On/ bypass: Robust, crackle-free foot switch
  • Bypass: Two-colour LED indicating the ring modulator status: On or bypass
  • Mix: Knob for continuous mixing of the unmodulated and modulated output signal
  • Lo/ hi: Switch selecting the deep, adjustable carrier frequency (2 Hz to 130Hz) and the adjustable, high carrier frequency (60 Hz to 4 kHz)
  • Frequency: Knob controlling the carrier frequency in a range of eight octaves
  • Level LED: Three-colour LED monitoring the strength of the input signal
  • LFO LED: Monitoring the LFO Rate

Connection panel:

  • Audio in: Suitable for instrument or line signals from -16 dBm to +4 dBm
  • Audio out L/R: For connection to a mixer or amplifier, par value of -4 dBm
  • LFO out: Supplies LFO voltage to connect other voltage controlled devices
  • Carrier in: For supply of an external signal to the ring modulator, instead of the internal carrier oscillator
  • Frequency, rate, LFO amount, mix: For connecting the Moogerfooger EP-1 or an identical expression pedal as well as control voltages on mono or stereo jack
  • 9V: Power socket to connect the supplied 9 V AC power supply
  • Carrier out: Provides carrier signal to control other devices

Moog MF-102 Excellent Range of Sounds!

Antique Guitars, 30.01.2014
I am a guitar player primarily and have been using the Moog MF-102 on my pedal board for live shows and recording for a number of years. The pedal is very well built and is easy to operate, Moog offer you numerous control options which allow you to modify the output in quite an incredible amount of ways. I am particularly fond of the way you can change the waveform via a switch, this creates some truly interesting sounds!

The numerous inputs and outputs also offer flexibility for live and recording purposes as well as making this pedal easy to use with a multitude of different instruments. The signal output from the pedal is clean and sharp as you would expect from any Moog equipment.

In regards to aesthetics and quality, I find the MF-102's mix of wood and metal casing to be eye catching and strong, when you look at this pedal you might think it should belong in some crazy science lab! My only negative comment about this pedal is that the jack sockets are made out of plastic and that during transit in a pedal board they occasionally have a habit of unscrewing. I would have liked to have seen more heavy duty metal jack sockets installed.

Although the Moog MF-102 is a fairly expensive piece of kit, it is a versatile and durable beast that looks great and offers quite an extensive range of different modulation sounds.

If you are into Psychedelia, Prog, Post Rock or Post Metal and are looking for something different to diversify your sound you should definitely check this pedal out.

Most versatile ring mod ever

Feghead, 30.01.2015
There's nothing like it, all analog and highly controllable with expression pedal input (up to 4!) to control all the main parameters. Not true bypass, but it colours your original tone in a wonderful way. Does the throbbing tremolo and bell tones superbly, as well as the mad dissonant robot and Dr Who sounds ring modulators are known for.

The only downside for me as a guitarist is the size of the thing! it is not exactly pedalboard friendly and is more suited to studio or keyboardists use. Having said that Moog do a rackmounting kit for these pedals making them more space-friendly.

There are cheaper ring mods but they can't compare with this beast, even the Moog Minifooger is a pale imitation of the real thing.

If you can afford this get it as it is wel worth the money, and sound-wise it can't be beat!
