Introducing the Moog MF-105M MIDI MuRF
MuRF 代表“多個濾波器組成的陣列”(multiple resonance filter array). 8 個滑桿控制8 個濾波器的音量. MuRF 濾波器內建24 種濾波Pattern. Pattern變化速度可手動, 或者和MIDI 時鐘同步. 也可以用MIDI Note ”演奏” Pattern.
MF-105 能記錄 8 個濾波器音量, 存成 pattern, 總共能切換 24 個 pattern 變化. 切換速度能用旋鈕, 表情踏板或打拍子輸入控制. 濾波音量隨時間變化能做出節奏. Envelop 鈕能改變調變方式, 做出活潑的techno 節奏變化或細微的音色轉換. 控制參數還有音量控制和效果音/原音比例.
MF-105 除了CV 控制輸入外, 還支援 MIDI 控制. 濾波順序可和 MIDI 時鐘同步. 用音色切換指令 program change 可叫出不同 pattern, 用 MIDI CC 可控制旋鈕. 最棒的是, 可用 MIDI 鍵盤 “彈奏” 濾波器 (接受 MIDI note on 信號). 附免費 pattern 編輯軟體, 也可當作 vst 在編曲程式中修改控製聲音. 相關程式下載: http://www.moogmusic.com/products/moogerfoogers/mf-105m-midi-murf#downloads-tab
MuRF 繼承 Moogerfoogers 以音樂家為本的設計理念. 為了製作肥厚, 溫暖的音色, 本效果器聲音路徑走 100% 類比線路. 可處理所有樂器輸出或線錄輸出 line out. 各種演奏參數可用旋鈕, 外接表情踏板或其它類比器材的 CV 輸出控制. 採用堅固耐操零件, 能在惡劣舞台環境或錄音間使用.
PATTERN Rotary Switch: Selects one of 12 Animation Patterns in each bank.
FREQ Slide Switch: Selects whether BASS or MIDS pattern bank is active.
LFO Slide Switch: Applies LFO modulation to patterns
RATE Rotary Control: Sets the Rate of the Pattern. Sets Clock Divider value when synced to MIDI Time Clock.
ENVELOPE Rotary Control: Sets the envelope shape of the patterns.
DRIVE Rotary Control: Adjusts the gain of the audio input circuit.
OUTPUT Rotary Control: Adjusts the output level when the effect is active. Used for balancing the filtered signal with the bypassed signal.
MIX Rotary Control: Sets the proportion of direct to effected signal that appears at the output.
FILTERS Slider Controls: Controls the gains of the following frequency bands(determined by FREQ Slide Switch): BASS -110 Hz, 160 Hz, 240 Hz, 350 Hz, 525 Hz, 775 Hz, 1.2kHz, 1.8kHz. MIDS – 200 Hz, 300 Hz, 450 Hz, 675 Hz, 1kHz, 1.5 kHz, 2.2 kHz, 3.4kHz
DRIVE LED: 3-color LED indicates the level of the Input signal. Green indicates a low-level signal, yellow indicates optimal signal level, and red indicates soft clipping.
BYPASS LED: 3-color LED indicates effect status. Red indicates bypass, and Green indicates Mid Voicing, Orange indicates Bass Voicing.
RATE LED: RED = Pattern Clock Rate determined by the Rate control/CV Input, GREEN = Pattern Clock Rate determined by Tap Tempo/Step control and ORANGE = The Current State has been last modified by MIDI and the front panel control knob doesn’t indicate the state of the unit.
AUDIO IN: Phone jack accepts any instrument-level or line-level signal from 16 dBm to +4 dBm. Input impedance is 1 megohm.
LEFT/MONO OUT: " Phone Jack carries the summed signal (left+right, all freq. bands) when Right Output is not connected, and carries the Left output signal (Freq. bands: 200 Hz, 450 Hz, 1 KHz, 2.2 KHz) when the right output is connected. Nominal output is ’16 dBm to +4 dBm depending on setting of Output Level control when effect is active. Output impedance is 5,000 Ohms.
RIGHT OUT: Phone Jack carries the Right Output signal (Freq. Bands 300 Hz, 675 Hz, 1.5 KHz, 3.4 KHz). Nominal output is ’16 dBm to +4 dBM depending on setting of Output Level control when effect is active. Output impedance is 5,000 Ohms.
RATE, MIX, ENVELOPE, LFO/SWEEP are TRS jacks that accept Moogerfooger EP-2 (or equivalent) expression pedals, or control voltages from two or three-circuit jacks.
TAP/STEP IN: This tap tempo input accepts a normally open momentary footswitch for syncing the rate of ANIMATION to the tempo of the music.
The MIDI In implementation on the MIDI MuRF makes possible a powerful new set of synchronization and control features that respond to the following MIDI Messages:
- System Real-time: MIDI Timing Clock, MIDI Start, Continue and Stop
- Channel Voice messages: Program Change, Control Change, Note On/Note Off
- System Exclusive messages: change MIDI channel, write user pattern sets, firmware upgrade.
A MIDI Program change received on the current MIDI Channel with a value 000-023 will override the position of the pattern and Freq Switch. A movement of the Pattern Knob or the Freq Switch sets the MIDI MuRF’s current pattern to the one selected by the front panel.
Control Change Messages:
The MIDI MuRF can respond to MIDI CC Messages to alter the settings of the MuRF or the pattern clock rate. Changes made by MIDI CCs are over-ridden by moving the corresponding panel control or changing the state at the corresponding CV input.
Note On Messages:
In MUTE MODE, TRIGGERED MODE and SUSTAINED MODE, MIDI Note On messages can play the MIDI MuRF’s filters. In STEP MODE the rate setting is ignored and Note On messages advance the pattern step.
MIDI_RTC_CLOCK: MIDI CLOCK sets the rate of the pattern clock. When synced to MIDI CLOCK, the RATE LED flashes ORANGE at the Clock division.
MIDI_START: MIDI Clock Start Messages starts the Pattern Clock at the beginning of the Pattern, and synced to the MIDI Clock messages
MIDI_STOP: MIDI Clock Stop Message Stops the Pattern Clock.
MIDI_CONTINUE: MIDI Clock Continue Message restarts a stopped Pattern Clock at the next step in the Pattern.
CLOCK_DIVISIONS: Front panel RATE knob/CC9 or LFO Rate CV Input/CC3 are quantized to 16 positions and sweep through clock-divisions of MIDI Clock Messages (12 o’clock is quarter-note):
Defaults to Channel 1 on each power up, unless the stomp switch is closed. If the stomp switch is closed when power is applied then the Pattern Rotary switch sets the current MIDI Channel from 1-12. Changes are stored on power down.
CASE: Steel case with black powder coat finish and wood sides; classic analog appearance.
