    I am wondering how the Moogerfooger CP-251 Control Processor and the Moogerfooger pedals (low pass, phaser, murf, ring mod) work together....


    .....how is it setup, what does it do? help:help: :help: :help:
     
  2. the best thing i can recommend is
    http://www.moogmusic.com/manuals/cp-251.pdf

    it looks fairly complicated, although what i seemed to get out of it is that it is a way to use one CV pedal for several moog effect pedals...it also has a built-in sample and hold circuit

    Excellent recommendation to RTFM! Think of the CP-251 as a way to centralize your control voltages. You can do all of your CV patches in one place instead of having to deal with each module separately. Example: If you decided to build a modular synth out of moogerfooger modules, which many folks have done, the missing part would be a CV mixer/distribution panel. That's what the 251 does. If all you are doing is using a MF module as a stompbox and not working with control voltages, then you probably don't need a 251. You would be better off getting an EP-1 and manipulating one CV at a time to get the hang of it.
