OVERVIEW

From bayou to blues, great tremolo pedal.

The MF Trem is an analog tremolo pedal based around a balanced modulator and Sub Audio VCO. This unique design creates a wide range of tremolo effects that are based on phase cancellation and addition. Create classic optical and hard tremolo effects that are reactive to harmonic content, or push up the depth control and shift into the beginnings of lush phasing and chorus. The variable Shape control interacts directly with Tone and Mix to craft subtle swells and gallops to rhythmic percussive, and swirling effects. An expression pedal input adds control over tremolo Speed for beautiful, hands-free swells and rotary effects.

CONTROLS
SHAPE- Sweeps between modulation waveshapes. Center position has a smooth rise and fall. This is great for creating optical tremolo sounds. Hard right has a hard impact followed by a smooth decline. This creates abrupt and percussive behavior that is very musical when paired with the Tone knob. Hard left has a smooth lift and abrupt drop off which creates a sound similar to a reverse effect at slower speeds and a rotary speaker at higher speeds.

SPEED- Sets the overall Tremolo rate. At slower settings the sound is swirling, lush, and transformative. As the Speed is increased the sound becomes tighter and more like a rotary speaker. The Shape and Depth controls will directly affect the perceived speed and rhythm of your Tremolo as they are increased from minimum to maximum position.

DEPTH- At minimum the tremolo effect is subtle and mostly dry. As Depth is increased more tremolo effect is blended in the mix causing phase cancellation and addition effects. At center position the sound will begin to gallop and swing. This impact on the sound varies significantly depending on Speed. At maximum position, the tremolo speed doubles and all sound is sent through the Tone control.

TONE- This control affects the Tremolo signal only leaving the dry signal untouched. At maximum, all frequencies are affected by the tremolo. As the Tone control position is decreased, the effect of the tremolo becomes more-subtle. From the mid position down, the Tone control can be used to dial in sounds that impact only low frequencies in your instrument or to shape classic rotary swirl and phase-like sounds.

EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT:Assigned to Speed. Use it for swells and transitions between high and low settings.

            Comments about Moog Minifooger Trem Guitar Tremolo Effects Pedal:

            I bought this to simulate a sound for a song written using Logic Pro X and while I was hoping for a sound that would be close, this thing nails it. Built like a tank and analog, as all goood pedals should be.

              Has a nice variety of waveforms for the LFO including some "dual emphasis" ones. The CV pedal input for speed is useful, would be cool if it could also be used for changing the wave shape. Good sounding device in a bulletproof box...

                  This is a great pedal with a wide range of sounds thanks to the shape control. I also like that the tone control effects the wet signal only. With the depth set anywhere in the middle the original tone is preserved while the tremolo pulses can be darker or brighter.

                    Comments about Moog Minifooger Trem Guitar Tremolo Effects Pedal:

                    The reason I bought this is for the expression pedal (Moog EP3 bought separately.) It doesn't work right with the trem pedal. In fact ALL the knobs don't work right either. The tone and depth knobs also affect the speed. I can get a good sound at one speed but I can't change anything without a bunch of adjustments. The EP3 with the pedal all the way down is slowest, half way up is full speed, then all the way up is back to slow. Useless. It also adds a weird murkiness. I could've had a one trick pony tremolo for much less that would do what this does. Maybe I just got a bad one but you've been warned. I'm sending mine back.
