The Malekko Goatkeeper (MGK) is a completely redesigned version of the Lightfoot Labs Goatkeeper, first released in 2007. The core of the pedal is an all analog tremolo circuit using a THAT Corp VCA, which when combined with the built in waveforms, can produce tremolo sounds from percussive to
smooth. The MGK’s LFO generation consists of two stages, each with a range of multiplier values and waveform selection.

The two stages can be run in one of four modes:

  • Sequential: The two stages are run one after the other
  • Composite: The two stages are run simultaneously and the effective waveform is a polyrhythmic composite of the two.
  • Modulation: The two stages are run simultaneously and the second waveform modulates the first waveform.
  • Single: First stage only for classic tremolo.


Tempo can be set with the RATE knob or with the Tap/Sync input. The Tap/Sync input accepts a Malekko Lil’ Buddy for tap tempo control, or an analog clock/metronome signal. The DEPTH knob allows the effect to vary from subtle to high intensity.
