The MF Trem from Moog is on another plane of analog tremolo because its design, based on a balanced modulator and Sub Audio voltage-controlled oscillator, which births wide ranges of tremolo effects based on phase cancellation and addition. Use the MF Trem to create reactive optical and hard tremolo, or push up the depth and shift to blanket listeners in lush phasing and chorus. The variable Shape control plays with the Tone and Mix to craft subtle swells and gallops to rhythmic, swirling percussive effects. Also, the MF Trem has an expression pedal input, allowing on-the-fly control of the Speed control.
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.
