If you’ve ever played around with an FX unit like the Korg Kaoss Pad 3 or the Pioneer EFX-1000 – you’ll find that some effects are more useful than others.  As a piece of technology, it’s actually pretty amazing that this one little box is capable of doing so much to a single piece of audio.  If you actually study how an effects unit is capable of affecting a signal, you’ll find that it’s actually a simpler process than you had originally imagined.

Echo and Delay are very common and useful effects when transitioning through tracks; they can confuse the sense of rhythm and even make up for technical errors within a mix.  They are actually one in the same, with only a small amount of delay from the original signal creating the effect.  The same goes for a flange, in which the two signals are extremely closer to each …

Moog Moogerfooger Pedals: Using Control Voltage

In our last piece of exclusive content on the Moog Minitaur and Moog Moogerfooger pedals, Amos showed off how to integrate multiple analog synthesizers into your performance or production. This time Amos shows off the control voltage functionality on the Moogerfooger pedals. For those of you already familiar with control voltage and its applicable uses, you can watch the video to see how Amos uses CV with the Moogerfooger pedals. For those of you unfamiliar with control voltage, here is a brief explanation:

Control Voltage Explained

Voltage is the measurement of how much power is passing through a circuit. Control voltage is typically used to control the pitch or the parameters of an analog synthesizer. This varies in application based on the type of electronic device you are using. For example when voltage is increased on an amplifier it increases the volume. Control voltage for analog synthesizers is used to control the …
