There’s good news for all you control freaks out there. Moog’s mighty Multi-Pedal has received a major software upgrade. OS 2.0 adds a host of innovations that reinforce the Multi-Pedal’s position as the premier Analog, MIDI and USB Control Hub.
New features include: MIDI-to-CV conversion, Loopable Envelope Generators with four Envelope Shapes (Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential and Complex), CV Lag, CV Scaling and the ability to trigger Gates and MIDI events. These new features add to an already impressive list including, MIDI Clock Sync, Tap Tempo, Programmable Heel and Toe Voltages, four LFOs, four Analog Control Voltage Outputs, MIDI and USB connectivity. Many of the original features, such as Quad Mode and Noise Generation also received significant enhancements.
The number four comes up quite often when discussing the Multi-Pedal because practically anything it does, it can do on four independent channels simultaneously.
“I just started messing around with the Multi-Pedal not too long ago, and I love it!!! I incorporated it into my rig as I was rehearsing for our summer tour, and it opened up all new sonic possibilities for me” said Chris Kilmore of the band, Incubus. “It takes what I can only do with at least four hands and puts the control at my feet via a gas pedal. I use the four outs of the Multi-Pedal sort of like a patch bay. I have a four channel snake that runs from the Multi-Pedal to my Voyager or any one of my Moogerfoogers. I love the mobility that pedal gives me.”
So that even more musicians, DJs and producers can experience the power of the pedal, Moog Music is announcing a special promotion. From November 15, 2009 through December 31, 2009, the Multi-Pedal’s price will drop to $399 at participating US dealers and through the Moog website.
“The features in OS 2.0 take the Multi-Pedal to a whole new level” said Moog Music President, Mike Adams. “With four channels of MIDI-to-CV conversion, hooking the Multi-Pedal to a laptop sequencer gives you the flexibility and power of an analog step sequencer that can also communicate with MIDI gear.”
