Bet you didn’t see this one coming. Moog has announced plugin versions of its seven famous (and long discontinued) analog effects pedals, the Moogerfoogers.

Moog has released a wide variety of instruments and effects over the years, from major modular systems to outboard effects like equalizers. One of their most beloved modern product lines was the Moogerfooger series, seven analog effects pedals that incorporated CV for interconnectivity. Now the company has announced a plugin version of the Moogerfoogers, with all seven included in the bundle.

The Seven Effects

The now-retired effects – favored by artists like Daft Punk, Thom Yorke and Thundercat – ran the gamut from analog delay to more esoteric offerings, and they’re all present and accounted for in the software lineup.

The plugin suite includes:

  • MF-101S Lowpass Filter: the Moog ladder filter you know and love with an envelope follower for additional control.
  • MF-102S Ring Modulator: a carrier oscillator with an LFO for producing effects ranging from effects tremolo to typical metallic ring modulation.
  • MF-103S 12-Stage Phaser: a relative of the 1970s Moog phaser with an onboard LFO.
  • MF-104S Analog Delay: delay plus modulation.
  • MF-105S MuRF: a unique effect that combines a resonant filter bank with a pattern generator and skewing envelope.
  • MF-107S FreqBox: synced VCO with envelope and FM modulation.
  • MF-108S Cluster Flux: chorus, flanging and vibrato modulation.

Moog have retained the interconnected CV functionality of the originals by allowing you to connect the effects plugins across a DAW project for cross-modulation. The effects have also been beefed up for the modern digital age, with additional parameters not found on the originals added where appropriate.

Modernizing History

The Moogerfooger Effects Plugins follow the Animoog Z, Model 10 and Minimoog apps from the hardware realm to digital devices, and are the first from the company to be native for Windows.

“As we began the development of the Moogerfooger Effects Plug-ins, it was of paramount importance not just to clone the devices but to look for opportunities where digital technology could improve some of their characteristics,” Moog’s current VP of engineering and the former apprentice of Bob Moog, Steve Dunnington, said. “Thus, the envelope follower controls on the new MF-101S become more flexible for a wider variety of program material than the original MF-101, thanks to the possibilities provided by digital technology. Other examples abound in the Moogerfooger Effects Plug-ins, where inspiration was taken from the original with the addition of useful improvements. They sound great, like the classic Moog circuits we know and love.”

Pricing and Availability

The plugins are available for all major DAWs for Mac and Windows, in AUv2, VST3, and AAX formats. The package regularly retails for $249 USD but is available now for an introductory price of $149.
