Moog Vs Maceo

Maceo Parker Tries Out The Moogerfoogers      19/05/11

Moog Music has new live jam from their Sound Lab - but this video is a little different. 

It features sax funk master Maceo Parker, best known his work with James Brown, experimenting with a variety of Moogerfooger effects pedals, including:

  • MF-101 Lowpass Filter
  • MF-102 Ring Modulator
  • MF-103 12-Stage Phaser
  • MF-104Z Analog Delay

Here's what Moog has to say about this:

Beginning with the natural sound of Maceo's Fresh N' Funky Alto Sax, we quickly hurdle into another dimension by adding the MF-101 Low Pass Filter to the mix. Crankin' on the Cutoff knob of the MF-101 Low Pass Filter draws out an analog "Wah" that allows for additional sonic articulations -- say, "Wah-wah What?!?" It is recommended to keep the Resonance & Mix on the high side to bring out the most color when using this charismatic extension of your horn's voice

The MF-102 Ring Modulator, and MF-103 12-Stage Phaser are being used here to add anywhere from subtle tremolo effects, to mild grit to the tones being passed from the MF-101 Low Pass Filter, and MF-104Z Analog Delay.

The root of all Space-Funk is in our MF-104Z Analog Delay -- setting the Delay Time knob to a desirable tempo/pulse, and the Feedback knob to the desirable echo length, gives Maceo an analog canvas to work with that he can both apply color to, and take color from -- watch as he pauses to explore his audio imprint, then snatches it back to shape again. Rocking on the Delay Time switch, and tweaking the Delay Time knob at the end of Maceo's phrases twists his sound to an otherworldly degree, creating a stunning sonic vertigo. Where will our Moogerfoogers take your horn?
