Moog Music MoogerFooger Ring Mod

The MF-102 Ring Modulator is a direct descendant of the original Moog modular synthesizers. It contains three complete modular functions: a ring modulator, a voltage-controlled carrier oscillator, and voltage-contolled dual-waveform LFO. It can be used to process any instrument-level to line-level signal.

A ring modulator produces sum and difference frequencies between the audio input and a carrier oscillator. The ring modulator's LFO can be used to modulate the carrier frequency. The moogerfooger ring modulator can create effects ranging from subtle tremolo to harmonically rich distortion, gong-like sounds, sweeps, swoops, and divebombs. It can be subtle, or outlandish in it's use - you decide!

The moogerfooger ring modulator's control parameters are signal mix, carrier frequency, LFO rate, and LFO amount. All of the ring modulator's parameters can be controlled by the great feeling knobs that beg to be tweaked as well as with expression pedals or external control voltages. Panel switches select LFO waveform and carrier frequency range. 1/4" jacks are provided for audio input and output, pedal/control inputs, carrier input and carrier output. The heavy-duty yet smooth acting bypass switch allows tabletop or floor use.

Imagine that the ring modulator's carrier oscillator is producing a 500 Hz sine wave, and your input signal is a 100 Hz sine wave. The ring modulator's output will be a complex waveform. You will hear two pitches: 400 Hz and 600 Hz. You will not hear your original input or the carrier oscillator.

Features:

- FREQUENCY rotary control, which varies the carrier frequency over a six-octave range.
- RATE rotary control, which varies the LFO's frequency from 0.1 Hz to 25 Hz.
- LFO AMOUNT rotary control, which adjusts the amount that the LFO output sweeps the carrier oscillator.
- MIX rotary control, which crossfades continuously from unmodulated to modulated audio.
- DRIVE rotary control, which adjusts the gain of the audio input.
- SQUARE-SINE rocker switch, which chooses the LFO waveform.
- LO-HI rocker switch, which chooses between the low frequency carrier range (2 Hz to 130 Hz) and the high frequency carrier range (60 Hz to 4,000 Hz).
- LEVEL, a three-color LED that is used to set the DRIVE control.
- LFO, a LED that indicates the LFO rate.
- BYPASS, a two-color LED that tells whether the ring modulator is on or bypassed.
- ON/BYPASS, a rugged, smooth-acting 'stomp switch.'

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (33 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Moogerfooger Ring Modulator: best thing ever, or something..."
Sound: If you know what a ring modulator does, you won't be disappointed. Moog's attention to detail is just beautiful. And the LFO (what i mainly use the pedal for) is one of the best-sounding effects ever. Feature: As with all of the Moogerfooger pedals, the inclusion of modular jacks take it beyond a mere pedal. It's very powerful this way. And while expression pedals are extra, you can get them and are able to control each knob with your foot, which is very nice. But the fact that you can treat a group of pedals as modular components, possible to connect together in a number of ways as opposed to merely a series of individual stompboxes is revolutionary. It gives the guitar (or whatever you run through them) the power of a modular synthesizer. It's not merely an effect that does one thing. You can actually use your imagination and take its functions to completely new levels. Quality: This is a quality piece of machinery. Once again, following the fine tradition of Moog products. It's sturdy, they use quality components. Many of Bob Moog's original modular synths function to this day. It's due to the same quality and care as he's always put into his products. I know I'm sounding like a commercial, but this is really well-made gear. Value: Okay, I almost put a lower score on this one because it is really expensive. But I still must give it a 10 because it is worth every penny. It's expensive, but there's a reason. The quality in sound and in the way it's built is unmatched! Not to mention the modular expressiveness that these pedals have not found from other companies. So the price is high, but so is the value. This is really the top of the line. Manufacturer Support: Perhaps the fact that I haven't had the need for support or service says something. I'm pretty sure they have good customer support, but I'm not the one you should really listen to on that since I don't really know myself. The Wow Factor: If you've heard this you'd know it's one of the coolest sounding things ever! On the issue of "color" and all that, i don't really think that's much of an issue, but I'll address it anyway. I love the way these pedals look. They have that Moog look, which is nice. But if you've read the rest of what I wrote, I think I've covered most of the whole "I Want It" issue. Everything about it is sheer genius. Overall: This is not something I could replace. You CAN'T replace this. Nothing out there comes close to being like this. As well as the other 2 Moogerfooger pedals I have. They're not just individual pedals, but a system.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "WOW"
Sound: The sound quality on this unit is excellent. You won't believe it's coming from your amp. It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie at times. Crystal clear. This unit is great for making insane sounds, but it can also be used as a great tremolo unit. Feature: This is loaded with features. It has a LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) and Ring Modulator together. It also has jacks for the Moog expression pedal for each dial on the unit. You can also input your own Carrier Signal into the unit if you don't want to use the built in LFO. Quality: The unit seems like it should last long, as long as it's not banged around. The side panels are wood, but the bottum is a kind of thin sheet of aluminum or steel. Just don't drop it a bunch and it should stand up fairly well. The footswitch seems to be pretty sturdy. Value: This pedal can create an array of sound unlike anything I've ever heard. If you're interested in experimental sounds, this pedal could be of great value. The Wow Factor: It's a Moog, what else is there to say? The name speaks for itself as far as desirability. Overall: There are a few other Ring Modulators on the market, but none of the compare to this. Don't make a decision until you've heard/tried this one out. It's worth the extra money.
