In case the FreqBox wasn't adept at catapulting Moog beyond the frayed outer circles of unique electronic effects, another new Moogerfooger, unveiled today, 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.
The sound samples were recorded using a guitar and local radio signals broadcast right here in Asheville, NC. The new MF/FM begins shipping on April 1, 2007 and retails for $349.
