Moogerfooger ClusterFlux fbk playing

December 31, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Moog Moogerfooger Cluster Flux MF-108M, with feedback at maximum, can be “played” from MIDI Notes On/Off. In this video, the sound source is, as usual, the Acidlab.de MIAMI Analog Drum Machine; the frequency/time of MF-108M is played with Novation SL25 MkII MIDI master keyboard.

Shooted with an iPhone, audio in glorious mono.

The clock frequency of Moog Moogerfooger MF-104M analog BBD delay can be severely down scaled from external MIDI control. So, you can use the MF-104M as a grunge/glitch/hack/drone machine on every audio source. On this (dirty and short and easy) video bits, MF-104M is munching the Acidlab MIAMI analog drum machine.
