The MF-107 FreqBox is different from other effects - the effected sound is not a processed version of your input signal, but the sound of the input signal modulating an internal oscillator. It contains a VCO with continuously variable waveshape, and the capacity to modulate that Oscillator in the following ways
the VCO can be hard synced by the input signal
The VCO can be frequency modulated (FM) by the input signal
The VCO frequency can be modulated by an envelope follower which tracks the dynamics of the input signal
The Amplitude of the VCO also tracks the dynamics of the input signal
Hard sync is a classic analog synthesis technique where the start of an oscillator s cycle can be reset by another. The oscillator being synced takes on the frequency characteristics of the other oscillator, and when its frequency is swept, it reinforces the harmonics of the fundamental frequency. In the case of the FreqBox, the input signal is used to reset the FreqBox s VCO.
FM is a technique used to get really rich sounds from simple waveforms. The type of FM used in the FreqBox is linear FM. Sounds range from gong or bell-like tones to sizzly sweeps.
The FreqBox, like all moogerfoogers, works with any instrument to line-level input. In addition to the panel controls there are control inputs for use with expression pedals or control voltages and control outputs for interconnecting moogerfoogers like you would a modular synth.
The demo was recorded with an electric guitar, the FreqBox, a Moog EP-1 expression pedal, and recording software on a laptop. That s it!
The FreqBox can provide some really unusual processing to all types of signals guitars, synths, drum sounds, vocals or wind instruments allowing you to enter previously unexplored sonic territory.
The MF-107 Freq Box contains an analog VCO with continuously variable waveform which can be modulated by the audio input signal. Modulation of the VCO includes hard sync, Frequency Modulation, and modulation of the VCO frequency by an envelope follower. The amplitude of the VCO is controlled by the amplitude of the input signal.
Front Panel Controls
Frequency sets the frequency of the VCO.
Wave Morphs the VCO waveform from Triangle to Sawtooth to Square to skinny pulse.
Sync On/Off Enables/ Disables Hard sync of the VCO by the audio input signal.
Env. Amount Sets the amount of modulation of the VCO frequency by the Envelope
FM Amount Sets the amount of frequency modulation of the VCO by the audio input signal.
Mix Sets the blend of input signal and VCO signal
Drive Sets the input sensitivity and gain of the effect when active. Half to full drive amount adds overdrive.
Output level Sets the output level of the effect when active.
Bypass Switch Bypass LED is red when effect is off, and green when effect is on. The MF-107 uses a high quality buffered bypass ? when in bypass, the input is disconnected from the effects? electronics.

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.
The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:
- Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
- Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
- Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
- Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
- Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
- Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
- If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
- The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount
Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
Once the product is delivered, you have 30 days to decide that you definitely want to keep it. If you decide it is not suitable for any reason, you can return it back to us for replacement or full refund, including standard delivery charges.
All Products are new unless stated, and include a minimum of 2 years warranty.
Some items are only eligible for money back guarantee if they are returned to us unused and sealed in the original packaging, and in the case of software, unregistered. These items include:
- CDs & DVDs
- In-ear Monitors
- Earplugs and Ear Protection
- Mouthpieces, Reeds etc… for Woodwind and Brass instruments
- Mouth / Lip Care Products
We are unable to accept returns of any custom made items designed to work together as a unique package, such as computer system built to a customer’s personal specifications. Exceptions may only be possible with prior agreement of the vendor, and may be subject to a cancellation fee.
This item usually qualifies for free standard delivery. Saturday and timed delivery services are also available as cost options when you add the item to your shopping basket.
If you also purchase items that do not
qualify for free delivery, some delivery charges may be applied to your
