Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module

The Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module isn't just the pedal version stuffed into a 500 series rack; it's a line-level optimized unit with increased headroom, fidelity, and features to match the needs of recording engineers and musicians who will be interfacing via their DAW's interfaces and with the professional studio patchbay.

Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module Details

With the Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module, Moog brings us new and unique innovation packaged in the world??s first delay designed exclusively for the 500 series format. Not exactly new is the IDEA of a Moog Analog Delay. Entirely new, however, is the internal circuitry, optimized for the high-headroom demands of engineers working in high-resolution digital and analog professional studios, rather than for instrument level input and operation as is the case with the Moog MF-104M Moogerfooger Analog Delay. It is a MIDI syncable module that features a 100% analog signal path, front panel MIDI, and an assignable Tap Tempo/CV jack. Included with each unit is a free VST/AU/RTAS editor for easy implementation into any recording, live, and performance situation.

Out of the box the the Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module provides you with up to 800ms of the warmest, and most musical delay on the planet. No emulation plugin can or will impart depth and life into your mixes like the Analog Delay - not even the Bomb Factory version of the Moogerfooger (though it is still vibey and fun - there's nothing like the real thing and the difference is VERY evident to your ear). And "illegal times" are available from within the free VST/RTAS/AU editor, with AAX support coming soon.

This particular Analog Delay has been designed with tone, connectivity, and flexibility at the forefront. Moog??s engineering team worked tirelessly to deliver a 500 Series module with an incredibly clean front end that could easily pushed into a warm, natural overdrive for saturated delay trails or beyond for more distorted effects.

Though not on the front panel, the Analog Delay features a 6 Waveshape LFO that allows you to create other time based effects such as tape delay, chorus and extreme modulated sounds. The LFO can be easily accessed via MIDI or the free VST/AU/RTAS Analog Delay plug-in editor.

Also accessible via the editor are advanced features like Tap/CV input routing, Keyboard Control settings, Clock Divisions and a Delay Multiplier for access to illegal times up to 4x the front panel position. The Tap/CV input also can be fed audio from a click track to act as a tap tempo source.

The Moog 500 series Analog Delay combines the sound of the ultimate analog delay with convenient digital control and flexibility to create the perfect recording and live sound tool.

Why the Moog 500 Series Analog Delay is a MAJOR line-level upgrade from the MF-104M

  • FOUR NOS (New Old Stock) Panasonic Low Noise High Voltage BBDs
  • Premium "esoteric" TI/Burr Brown OPA1644 Op amps used throughout the analog signal path.
  • Premium "Metallized Polyphenylene-Sulphide Film capacitors in the filter section.
  • 2 Dual High quality Moog 6th order filters for anti alias and clock removal functions
  • Premium THAT high CMRR front end with Servo DC Nulling.
  • Premium THAT cross coupled differential drive output stage.
  • Ultra fast, low noise linear power supply regulators for the lowest noise possible in an analog delay.
  • Premium audiophile grade op amp upgrades though out for the lowest distortion and noise possible.
  • Upgraded High speed Low noise op amp upgrades for all CV and control sections.
  • Upgrades to the capacitors in all key sonic points to reduce microphonics, noise and improve sonic quality.
  • 2.5 - 3.5 times the sonic headroom and rails in the audio signal path.
  • Premium differential input and output sections utilizing DC servo modified THAT Corporation receivers and transmitters. (THAT In Genius 1200 Transformer simulating reviever with Moog designed DC servo offset removing, featuring over 1M input impedance and very high common mode rejection ratio, THAT Corp OutSmarts 1646 Balanced Line Driver for balanced transformer like floating outputs).
  • Ultra Low noise and fast transient response linear regulators and voltage isolation networks.
  • Complete design re-visitation with many small tweaks and adjustments to significantly open the sonic filed, warmth, lower noise and improve the sonic quality.
  • True relay hard bypass.
  • Low noise and low distortion gain and mixing sections with less coloration and distortion in the gain and mixing sections.
  • Significantly lower noise, distortion, microphonics, and other objectionable artifacts due to improved components and design improvements.
  • No VCA in the input, output, or mixer sections for lowered noise, distortion and coloration
  • Stereo linking capability and firmware improvements for a wide variety of mono to stereo delay effects and and stereo I/O capability
  • Improved and expanded LFO capabilities.
  • Lower distortion and higher accuracy BBD chain due to the addition of 5 trimmer pots to dial in the BBD recombining balance and gain stage accuracy.
  • Improved high end MUX circuitry in the 6th order anti alias filters and clock removal filters for lower noise and distortion.
  • Added analog click track to tap tempo tracking.
  • Flexible assignable CV buss.
  • Improved signal monitoring chain

What We Think

"The Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module isn't just the pedal version stuffed into a 500 series rack; it's a line-level optimized unit with increased headroom, clean-front-end fidelity, and features to match the needs of recording engineers and musicians who will be interfacing via their DAW's interfaces and with a professional studio patchbay. MIDI sync-ability is achieved via the MIDI port on the front panel of the unit. Also, tap tempo is made via a 1/4-inch port on the front panel. Six separate waveshape functions of the LFO (accessed via MIDI or the free VST/AU/RTAS Analog Delay plug-in editor) allow for all sorts of delay styles and musical delay artifacts when pushing the unit into overdrive. Stereo linkability is another feature of the Moog Analog Delay 500-Series Module. So, Front End Audio is offering these in special-pair bundles. We're thrilled that what has become known to be one of the most musical and natural sounding delays is now available in a format that we can easily use, and with features that expand the capability of the classic Moog Analog Delay into a very functional device for the professional level engineer."
