Is It a Chorus? Is It a Flanger? It's Cluster FluxMoog has blurred the line between chorus, flanging, and other modulation-based effects with the Moog Music MF-108M Moogerfooger Cluster Flux chorus/flanger pedal. Like any Moogfooger stompbox, the MF-108M Cluster Flux offers purely analog circuitry in a robust metal chassis with hardwood sides for serious Moog sound and style. Plug in your guitar, or bass, or keyboard, or drum machine -- any sound source -- and see where it takes you.
Your Sonic ToolboxThe MF-108M's top panel offers six analog waveforms to choose from (including sine, triangle, square, ramp, reverse ramp, and sample and hold) and a toggle switch to select between flange and chorus modes. You can even control both positive and negative wave polarity to generate constructive or deconstructive interference on the fly. More than just a chorus pedal, Cluster Flux has the versatility to simulate flanging, tremolo, and other modulation-based effects, depending on how you set the knobs.
Pure Analog Circuitry -- Zero Digital HarshnessThe MF-108M's real strength lies in its pure analog insides. With 100% analog circuitry, Cluster Flux adds a warm glow to your tone -- from a shimmer to a wobble -- without the harsh digital artifacts you get from other stompboxes. Whether you're in the market for a chorus, a flange pedal, or something entirely new, the MF-108M offers a world of tone all its own.
Features:- Chorus footpedal with pure analog circuitry
- Control knobs for Time, Feedback, Drive, Output, Mix, LFO, Rate, and Amount
- Time adjusts delay time between 0.6 and 10 milliseconds in Flange mode and 5 and 50 milliseconds in Chorus mode
- Feedback ranges from no feedback to positive or negative infinite feedback (polarity selects even or odd harmonics)
- Drive adjusts gain between -7 dB and +28 dB
- Output lets you adjust overall volume without adding gain
- Mix fades betweens pure effect and pure bypassed signal
- LFO selects between six waveforms: sine, triangle, square, ramp, saw, and random step
- Rate varies the LFO rate between 0.05 Hz and 50 Hz (range can be extended with an external expression pedal)
- Amount adjust the LFO intensity
- Range rocker switch changes between Flange and Chorus modes
- LFO rate and shape is visually indicated with the two-color Rate LED
- MIDI control is visually indicated with the two-color MIDI LED
- Output level and clipping is visually indicated with the two-color Level LED
- Effect state is visually indicated with the two-color Bypass LED
- Set tempo manually with LFO Tap Tempo button or sync with your MIDI clock
- 1/4-inch audio input accepts any instrument-level or line-level signal (good for guitars, basses, keyboards, drum machines, etc.)
- 1/4-inch outputs (left and right)
- 1/4-inch Feedback insert for inserting effects in the feedback loop of the delay chain
- Independent 1/4-inch expression pedal inputs for Feedback, Time, LFO Rate, Mix, and LFO Amount (expression pedal sold separately)
- 5-pin MIDI input for controlling the MF-108 via MIDI
- A true stompbox with robust metal footswitches, black metal chassis, and real hardwood side panels
- Footswitches for LFO Tap Tempo and bypass
- True analog bypass
- Powered via included 9V power adapter (European or UK power adapter available separately)

Front Panel- Time:
Adjust delay time 0.6mS to 10mS in Flange mode and 5mS to 50mS in Chorus mode.- Range: Select between Flanger and Chorus mode- Feedback: Continuous control from no feedback to infinite feedback. Bi-Polar control allows the feedback to highlight even or odd harmonics. - Drive: Allows between -7dB and +28dB of gain or attenuation of the input signal for optimum signal path, level matching and distortion sounds. - Output: Allows gain and attenuation of output signal for compatibility with a widerange of input devices. - Mix: Cross fader control to vary the amount of wet or dry signal heard on output. - Lfo: Six position rotary switch to select the LFO wave shape for delay time modulation. Select between Sine, Triangle, Square, Ramp, Saw and Random stepped modulation. - Lfo Rate: Adjust the LFO rate from the sub audio to audio rates. Control from 0.05 Hz to 50 Hz from the front panel (more from the CV). - Lfo Amount: Controls the amount of LFO modulation of the delay time.
LEDs and switches- Rate: A Bi-Color LED to display the rate and shape of the LFO wave as well as the source of control. - Midi: A Bi-Color LED to display the presence of MIDI control. - Level: A Bi-Color LED to display the level of the input signal post drive control foroptimum processing level. - Bypass: A Bi-Color LED to indicate if the effect is engaged or not. - Tap Tempo: A rugged smooth-acting stomp switch for setting LFO rate. - Bypass Switch: A rugged smooth-acting stomp switch bypassing the unit with abuffered input.

Product DescriptionDon't be fooled by the Chorus/Flange switch. While the Moog Music Cluster Flux can conjure up a monstrous Jet Flange and sparkling Chorus sound, it also can transport you straight into another dimension.
Create an array of unique sounds with 6 wave shapes (Sine, Triangle, Square, Ramp, Reverse Ramp and Sample and Hold). Each shape is the foundation for a completely different musical inspiration. Tap in the tempo of your LFO via the TAP TEMPO button, or sync the Cluster Flux to a MIDI clock.
Positive and Negative Feedback allow you a wider range of tones and voicing than you would find in a normal stomp box. These can even be used to drive the Cluster Flux into tuned self-oscillation.
Use the Amount and Rate controls for expression and modulation of the delay line. Anything from vibrato to a jackhammer, these controls can make it happen.
Just want a little bit of an effect? Use mix control to dial in the perfect blend of original and effected signal.
Want more control? CV jacks on the back allow for control of Time, Rate, Mix, Feedback and Amount via the Moog EP-2 Expression Pedal, CV or other Moogerfoogers.
Like all Moogerfoogers, the Cluster Flux is made to work with all sound sources: Guitars, Drum Machines, Keyboards ... you name it. The Cluster Flux is of course built in the classic Moog fashion and is guranteed to give you a lifetime of musical joy!
