Fortify your sonic arsenal with the best-sounding, most playable filter in the cosmos: the Moog Moogerfooger MF-101.
Moog Music Moogerfooger MF-101 Lowpass Filter at a Glance:
Why you need an analog lowpass filter
If you're into making music, the Moog Moogerfooger MF-101 is a must-have. Simply put, a lowpass filter removes high frequencies from a sound, rendering it mellower, more muted. The lower you move the cutoff frequency, the more muted your sound. You can think of it like a window shade: as you pull the shade down, it omits the light that's coming in the top of the window, then the light from the middle, and finally all the light. When you sweep the MF-101 Lowpass Filter's Cutoff control, it does the same thing to your sound spectrum. At this juncture, it's worth mentioning that analog is king here; lowpass filters are one area where digital doesn't quite make the grade. Analog lowpass filters sound satisfyingly fat and punchy, and they behave differently from their digital brethren, even allowing you to drive them into self-oscillation with judicious use of their resonance control.
Boatloads of sound-shaping mojo
With its Signal Mix, Cutoff Frequency, Resonance Amount, and Envelope Amount rotary controls, the Moog Moogerfooger MF-101 gives you boatloads of sound-shaping mojo. What's more, you get a choice of 2-pole or 4-pole settings - for brighter or deeper filter frequency response - courtesy of a rocker switch. Another rocker selects between smooth and fast envelope follower response. Want to keep your hands free for playing? The Lowpass Filter's parameters can be controlled with expression pedals or external control voltages (as well as the unit's addictively tweakable knobs).
A bona fide Moog
The MF-101 Lowpass Filter was designed by the legendary Bob Moog. It incorporates a bona fide Moog filter plus an envelope follower for dynamic control over filter sweeps. Use the MF-101 Moogerfooger with keys, guitar, bass, samples, or even recorded tracks, for the ultimate in real-deal analog filter effects, unbesmirched by contact with the digital world! And the MF-101's pedigree? This Moogerfooger is a direct descendant of the original Moog modular synthesizers. Need we say more?

Inspired and Unlimited
by Joshua Hoffman from Orlando, FloridaThis is truly one of the best pedals ever created. Its sound is inspiring and the potential to customize that it is unlimited. I know a lot of bass players in the funk, jam, and live electronic genre... read more [+]s and we all own one Moog (if not more) and all set it differently. I like to run the Res. Real hot and then sweep in and out with the Cutoff, running it all into delay to create “Space Invader”/out-of-this-world sounds. It does take some time to learn how to play the pedal correctly; however, once you get over the hump it will become the cornerstone of your pedal set up. close [-]

Music Background: Semi-Pro Touring Musician
The Moog Moogerfoofer MF-101 Low Pass Filter is the stuff of legends. You can use it as a CV or expression pedal controlled filter, sure. But where it really starts getting interesting is when you start pushing the Resonance on the unit so far that it self-oscillates! Combining a Filter this pure and clean with an Envelope follower creates amazing potential for sound design. It's a small slice of Analog-Synthesis-Heaven... Enjoy!
A true disappointment
by from Gold Bar, WA USAI thought I would purchase a envelope filter after my motorcycle wreck that I lost use of my left leg and couldn't use my wah pedal anymore.

I have a Moog ring modulator that I really like so I... read more [+] thought this would be a great envelope filter. I was wrong, this box is so noisy I couldn't get my noise gate to silence it without cutting out some of my guitar playing.
I've had a chance to use the Electro-Harmonix Qtron + and I feel it's a way better effect pedal, not only is it way quieter, the range of it works best with guitar and bass. close [-]
