Behringer previews the BM-102, an analog clone/replica of the Moog Moogerfooger MF-102 ring modulator effect pedal from 1998.

Almost a year ago, in March 2022, to be precise, Behringer presented the AD-104 effect pedal. This will be an authentic clone/replica of the iconic Moog Moogerfooger MF-104 BBD-based analog delay pedal. Due to the missing chips, the AD-104 is one of those many projects that are not yet available.

However, the development of the projects continues. Uli’s social media department assures us of this. Exactly they have now previewed another Moogfooger pedal replica/clone. They are currently working on the MF-102 ring modulator.

Some time ago, we showed you a prototype of our version of the Mooger Fooger pedal, which is no longer produced. We have just built another prototype of the Ring Modulator. What is your interest in this model?

The BM-102 is a clone/replica, or what you call it of the Moog Moofooger MF-102 ring modulator from 1998, initially designed by Bob Moog. It is a 100% analog pedal, will probably have the same features, and be based on the same circuit design as the original pedal.

Like the original, the BM-102 consists of three complete modulation functions: a ring modulator, a voltage-controlled carrier oscillator, and a voltage-controlled dual-waveform LFO.  It gives you control over the LFO, modulator, rate, and frequency control. Then there is also a drive in the middle section.

There is no surprise on the back, either. Mono audio input/output and various CV/expressional pedal inputs and outputs. These allow musicians to play the features expressively, no matter with a pedal or modular synthesizer

The original MF-102 is often used to generate classic tremolo sounds but also very bizarre sounds. it gets particularly exciting when you use it in extreme settings. Here you can achieve very unique resonating sound effects.

It is unknown when the Behringer BM-102 will be available nor what it will cost at retailers. Since Behringer still lacks the chips for many projects, this project will take some time.

Those who can’t wait for the upcoming Behringer “Boogerfoogers” can also check out the Moog plugins, which recreate the original workflow and sound in software. In this way, you can implement your software Moogerfooger workflow and knowledge directly in hardware when they are available.

what you have learned in the software can be implemented directly in the hardware when it is available.
