Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
This thing is basically a whacked out wah/envelope follower with wide parameters so you can get some great sounds. This is 100% analog lovin. The only editing is the five knobs on its face. It is all 1/4" audio. It is rackable if you buy the rackmount accessory (which holds three mf pedals all together).

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple in the fact that it has only 5 knobs, but like I said earlier, the parameters are WIDE. Because of this, you get quite a range of sounds from traditional wah to birds chirping while tripping on acid kinda stuff. The manual will give you some diagrams for "presets" and I recommend you learn them. Its confusing when on stage and you want a particular sound and you don't remember what positions the knobs are supposed to be.

SOUND QUALITY

All the sounds out of this pedal are awesome! I write music in the vain of radiohead, flaming lips, sigur-ros, and others who love textured and melodic noise, so this things comes in very handy. I use this in my effects chain of my syth/drum sampler/alt vocals/etc. mixer and it gets used on all of them. It really sounds good on everything if you toy around and find the coolest config.

OVERALL OPINION

I have had this for three years now. The best thing about this is the way the "wah" effect sounds on pads. Very eerie and ambient. The worst thing is how loud it can get when you mess with the resonance, but that is the nature of analog music. I just run a compressor after it and clip the ear piercing highs. I owned a dunlop crybaby before i got this, and the mf should be what the dunlop really was... a little baby. This thing cost $265 and I recommend buying the $40 expression pedal or it won't be nearly as fun. Its a lot of money, but once you start buying high end gear, you know exactly why it costs so much. If this thing ever breaks, i will do everything in my power to get another quickly.

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
Low-pass filter with fully analog envelope tracking.
No editing or noon, the good old CV.

UTILIZATION

Simple configuration provided it is a bit familiar with analog synthesis. However, the book provides very little educational explanations and audio examples that come with it.

SOUND QUALITY

I want to say that the quality of the filter is legendary for nothing. This is analog, it's hot and very round, it can be very mild or nervous with a little more gain and resonance. However I use this pedal for several years with a guitar, and if you want a good auto-wah: go your way. Let me explain: there is therefore a tracking device on this envelope, gold, depending on the output of your guitar and the sustain you very different results. For my part, the envelope is often too short, I can increase it by pushing the drive but the sound begins to saturate, and suddenly the envelope in its amplitude max, makes bubbles in the filter. Basically, what's missing in this pedal to make a good auto-wah from scratch, this is a real ADSR envelope. Fortunately, she can do much more than that because you can control each knob foot pedal via CV (moog EP-2 type) or connect an LFO another MoogerFooger on the filter for example.
For those who prefer analos synths, go with eyes closed. This filter allows you to "moogifier" any synth from the VCA envelope.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a decade. This is a very robust pedal, excellent craftsmanship with a legendary sound. The quality / price ratio Moog, it's very expensive but it is ... But I separated for a more suitable guitar filter, sort excellent Sonuus Wahoo.
-1 Nothing is perfect
-2 Nothing is editable
-3 For my wallet
-4 To wrap guitar

Bass Vador's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
Envelope filter pedal MOOG size, powered reverse 9v analog completely

UTILIZATION

Comprehensive configuration, take the time to find the sound and it must also know the principle of an envelope filter, it helps.

SOUND QUALITY

Very good sound quality, great presence and definition, for lovers of vintage, this is the top, the MOOG quality wholesale.
I find it more relevant (warmer and finer) than the EBS IQ fingers.
For it is less effective against slap.
The gain knob drive is simply insane, it's my sense that the lack of pluparts envelope filter, little sounds sought to Jamiroquai and Daft Punk.
Against by the same gain is not releasable to the effect, that means that if you set a sound with a lot of drive, you will find it on your drive clear sound, so I suggest this effect to a couple A / B box with level control loop (type LS2 boss).

OVERALL OPINION

Strengths:
Sound Quality
Assignable expression pedals complete settings for each knob
mixing effect and clean

Weaknesses:
size, fragility
Non detachable drive
reverse supply 9v
Amok_01/29/2013

Amok_'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good autowah / drive for synth bass and"

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
Effects pedal analog kind autowah + preamp / drive
-External power (no battery)
Strong-box with a bypass button that is on the effect and not the drive
5 buttons with:
-1 Potentiometer drive (pre-filled with beautifully colored, see below)
A button-mix (dosage effect, very good)
Jacket, cutoff and resonance
-1 Switch to switch 2 pole filter 4 pole, allowing for a more or less soft
-1 Switch for the speed of the envelope

You can add an expression pedal
Mono
No MIDI
No memories

UTILIZATION

Not obvious at first, you eventually master this in one evening!
The general editing is easy and you can always find a good compromise with possible adjustments between the intensity of the effect, the rate of activation (envelope) and cutoff. Resonance is the icing on the cake.

This effect is great for bass, whether it be a bass guitar or synth.
For lad / a synth pad is interesting, and even the organ.
It produces an effect that makes the bass autowah nervous, to produce cocottes funk
The drive more or less pushed, gives a punch and a safe really great. This works well on a bass guitar, synth VA (North lead, ...), and even an analog synth.
For digital synth, the analog drive side is very nice.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is the appointment, like all moogerfooger.
The drive, impossible to pass by, gives a warm and punch

OVERALL OPINION

I've had 4 months without a mandatory equipment, is really great for any bassist or keyboardist.
I use it on bass, on digital and analog synth. It warms my Nordlead beautifully and gives punch to my old jx3p (analog) that does not have a great level of output. For bass, it may be the only pedal required.
Most:
The warm sound of the drive, the effect of super low, the overall quality
Cons:
No battery, no memory of midday => bad quality / price ratio

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
<span style="font-family: 'Lucida Grande'; font-size: 11px; white-space: pre-wrap;">It's much more than just filters, it's almost an instrument in its own right, as it will change the instrument sound source! technology is analog! moog is normal, it's beautiful! the ideal is plug an expression pedal on it, the Moog EP-2 for example!</span>

UTILIZATION

<span style="font-family: 'Lucida Grande'; font-size: 11px; white-space: pre-wrap;">At first glance seem the same and it's simple! but in order to exploit all the possibilities of the toy. We have to spend time tweaking knobs! the manual explains the operation of the pedal and gives some adjustment to get the wah wah!</span>

SOUND QUALITY

<span style="font-family: 'Lucida Grande'; font-size: 11px; white-space: pre-wrap;">Then it's true happiness is the same magic is the best wah wah in the world !!!!!!!!!!!! Its volume is going to give depth to your sound! What groove! months I use it with everything: bar, groove box, keyboards, guitar ... but plugged into a Fender Rhodes is exceptional, really exceptional!</span>

OVERALL OPINION

<span style="font-family: 'Lucida Grande'; font-size: 11px; white-space: pre-wrap;">I used about a month! I'm tired, there are many possibilities with this filter! aesthetically it is very beautiful there is no desire to put his foot on it, the price can seem high for sure! but it is totally justified in view of the performance of the machine! to buy the closed eyes !!!!!!!</span>

abirato's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
Nothing more that Wow! It is an instrument in the true sense, at large. I love it! Potential:
autowah or wah / overdrive / narrow turn the stamps, the envelope, the cut off / boost / ring-resonance

He is careful not to gnrer Specifies sounds too violent because the machine is sensitive and capable of anything from this point of view (especially in suragus REALLY dangerous in the meaning of the term mdical !)
Expression pedals will on for the settings - output of the envelope or audio out-we can say that the pedals offer a range of possibilities coronation and connectors.

while a high quality that is worth more than many other effects because it is richer, too. To me it was worth the money. That's it said. I do not understand the opposing views: bypass impeccable ndnature not sound nor cre one breath, so it remains on the pramp on but it's a matter of rglage, possibility to find almost the sound of entremme through the filters or not at all (since it is what is asked). At least for me, on his Rhodes.

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
C is a low pass filter type filter envelope
fully analog with a real moog filter

UTILIZATION

A complte faade everything is assignable via a pedal of expression
we have to look a little on it to get the best as well as fact
The only problem might be that the bypass not a real nest, the preamp still trigger

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is just deadly, the Moog was in the fingers ...
with low c is one of the best envelope filter that I've heard
j ebs had a life that I've sold
but this effect is used with biensur No matter what instrument or voice box slaire etc. ....

OVERALL OPINION

I use the for quite some time and for me parfiatement
c is super funcky we raproche Bootsy level of quality and grain
the price is elitist but it's true chosen are already often between purse or qualitbr /> So I would do this choice with his eyes closed

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
See previous opinion

UTILIZATION

See previous opinion

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal is very effective, a beautiful grain

BUT!

The preamp is saying ... bad! it distorts really the sound of my guitar, bass and synths!

In the studio it's not that serious, but on stage is intolerable!!

OVERALL OPINION

Effect studio

for the scene, must make the choice to sacrifice the quality of the sound or find a BYPASS mode combines a workaround

it seems that the older models do not have this problem, the latest series like mine have a mediocre preamp,

considering the price is rather unfortunate!

nibla's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Moog Music MF-101 Lowpass Filter
Low-pass filter 12 or 24 dB analog Moog filter well known ... needless to say more ...

UTILIZATION

Config can be ne-plus-simple rglages envelope (amount and mix) and filter (cutoff and rsonnance) + rglage gain of (drive)

It is not necessary to be a crack to get by, but it is far from the even simpler when one is familiar with the world of synths analos

SOUND QUALITY

The quality is at the appointment, the opposite would also trsdcevant from this brand, and also considering the price, even when not given for pedals ...

the filter can be soft and trs trs end, as it can rsons death! anything is possible

I advise against by the pedals on keyboards plutt as guitars and basses, because I find it incorporated more of my earnings and my juno moog as gains plutt of my guitars and low, but it is subjective because I read conflicting opinions (especially bass players ).... see!

In any case, try it before you buy!

OVERALL OPINION

I do not use it since trs long, but I am convinced that DJ will not leave me to sitt, because it is really an effect on top of what may be in the Contents, and in addition is superb! synths like the brand is attached to it fast!

I have other envelope filters (Dod, EBS), but nothing like ...

the pedals are in line with what has cre good old Bob!
