MESSE07: Moog’s Never Been Done Before Stompbox

Moogerfooger MF/FM mixes live radio and instrument sounds to create out-of-this-world effects      28/03/07
MESSE07: Moog’s Never Been Done Before Stompbox


Moog reckon their FreqBox, launched at NAMM, catapulted them beyond the frayed outer circles of unique electronic effects. They think, however, that another new Moogerfooger, unveiled in Frankfurt, puts the phrase “never been done before� into almost cliché territory. The MF/FM effect actually captures radio signals, routes them through electronic wizardry, and produces some of the craziest sounds imaginable.
The MF/FM has an on-board analog radio tuner, capable of locking into frequencies across the FM radio band. Mix any instrument with live radio signals, and tweak the voltage controlled oscillator for modulated madness and creativity.
The MF/FM accepts instrument to line-level input and the signal is passed through drive and mix circuits (for dry/wet balance). The VCO section features frequency and waveform knobs, all controllable with an expression pedal.
Moog President, Mike Adams told us, “The MF/FM effect pushes the envelope on creative possibilities and puts musicians in a completely unique and spontaneous environment. Harnessing live radio signals means you’ll be constantly swimming in uncharted waters. Moog customers are always experimenting, and we can’t wait to hear what they do with this thing.�
Pricing and Availability:
The new MF/FM retails for $349 and begins shipping on April 1, 2007 (hmmm... they wouldn't be having a laugh here, would they?)

    If this was real - it would have a product number on it - MF-108 most likely. Although - it does make one wonder what the MF-106 is?!?
