Moog Music announces the Multiple Resonance Filter Array (MuRF), a new, Bob Moog-designed analog effect that allows users to shape tones and add pulsing, percolating or shimmering rhythmic effects to their tracks.

The latest issue in the company’s “Moogerfooger” line features eight resonant, tuned bandpass filters similar to a graphic EQ, each with a slider to control the gain of that frequency band.

A tap-tempo input and wide selection of sequencing patterns are available, with varied sequencing rates. Sequence selection and rate, envelope shape and direct mix may be played in real time.

The MuRF features analog audio processing, and wide-ranging player parameters may be controlled from either the panel knobs, expression pedals or analog synthesis instruments.

The MuRF is housed in a classic "double-wedge" enclosure for desktop or floor use. The MuRF is anticipated to ship by the end of March 2004. MSRP: $435.

In other company news, Moog released the Etherwave Pro, a professional, portable theremin designed for both stage and studio use.

The Etherwave Pro covers up to four octaves above middle C in three panel-selectable pitch registers. Visually, the Etherwave Pro blends futuristic and retro styling with striking vertical lines, nickel-plated and wooden knobs, and a birds-eye maple front panel.

A multiposition timbre selector offers a variety of waveforms, including the authentic traditional theremin tone. In addition, waveform, brightness and filter panel controls enable musicians to balance the timbre to suit their musical requirements.

The Etherwave Pro's antennas conform to the traditional theremin standard, and both right-handed and left-handed configurations will be available.

The Etherwave Pro's control voltage output allows it to interface with the Minimoog Voyager or moogerfoogers effects modules.

The Etherwave Pro can interface with the minimoog Voyager and moogerfoogers effects modules. It will sell for around $995 and is expected to ship by the end of the first quarter, 2004.
