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 …

Creating Analog Sounds: Moog Minitaur and Moogerfooger Pedals

While at the Moog Sound Lab during Moogfest 2012 we got an exclusive overview of how to integrate the Moog Minitaur analog bass synthesizer with a series of Moogerfooger pedals. Amos Gaynes walked us through some of the signature sounds on the Minitaur while tweaking his pre-made sequence using the MF-102 Ring Modulator, the MF-103 12 Stage Phaser, and the MF-104M Analog Delay.

Taking advantage of analog sounds is a great way to expand your production or performance. The Moog line of analog synthesizers provide specific tonal and sonic capabilities that could take you hours or days trying to emulate digitally with software. Here are some more specific features of each of these devices:

Moog Minitaur

While on the surface the Moog Minitaur looks limited, it is actually quite expansive with the ability to load and store 100 presets within the Minitaur’s internal memory. This is something new that Moog have …
