Moog Announces MF-108M Cluster Flux

The Cluster Flux is capable of providing classic flanging, chorusing, and vibrato effects, but is also capable of a much wider range of modulated delay line effects than traditional stomp boxes.

Asheville, NC (June 26, 2011) -- Moog Music announces the release of the MF-108M Cluster Flux, the newest addition to the MoogerFooger line of analog effects. The Cluster Flux is an ultra-powerful and flexible, sound-sculpting tool for use live or in the studio.

Expansive functionality combined with warm, analog sound come from the all-analog audio signal path. Musical, flexible, playable, and durable, the Cluster Flux is capable of providing classic flanging, chorusing, and vibrato effects, but is also capable of a much wider range of modulated delay line effects than traditional stomp boxes in this class due to the wide range of the front panel controls, the multi-waveform LFO, as well as CV and MIDI Control.

The MF-108M Cluster Flux is more powerful than traditional chorus/flange effects offering musicians the added modulation of multiple LFO waveforms: Sine, Triangle, Square, Saw, Ramp and Random, to create many kinds of new modulated BBD Delay effects. MIDI IN allows control of Delay Time, Range, Feedback, Output Level, LFO Waveform, LFO Rate, LFO Amount and Mix.

Additional features include:
  • The ability to sync LFO modulation effects to MIDI Clock or Tap Tempo
  • The ability to control Delay Time w/ MIDI Notes for “tuned” flanger comb-filter effects
  • CV control of Delay Time, LFO Rate, Feedback, LFO Amount, Mix
  • Send/Return Insert for external processing of BBD feedback loop
  • A second output configurable via DIP switches for different types of stereo outputs
  • A Spillover mode allows for creation of interesting drones and other feedback effects
  • Control of Delay Time, Mix and Feedback in Chorus setting for extreme chorus effects
  • Bi-polar feedback design creates Flanging effects w/ even or odd harmonic emphasis
  • Wide-ranging LFO Rate for very slow to audio rate modulation
  • Input/Output Level controls for use w/ wide range of devices
Pricing and Availability: The Cluster Flux MF-108M will be available at Moog Dealers worldwide in Q3 2011 for a sell price of $599.00

Flexible filtering options and a vicious fuzz distinguish the Tool bass master’s signature fuzz-wah.

Great quality filters that sound good independently or combined. Retains low end through the filter spectrum. Ability to control wah and switch on fuzz simultaneously. Very solid construction.

Fairly heavy. A bit expensive.

Options for self-expression through pedals are almost endless these days. It’s almost hard to imagine a sonic void that can’t be filled by a single pedal or some combination of them. But when I told bass-playing colleagues about the new Dunlop Justin Chancellor Cry Baby—which combines wah and fuzz tuned specifically for bass—the reaction was universal curiosity and marvel. It seems Dunlop is scratching an itch bass players have been feeling for quite some time.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
