Alesis ModFx Philtre
Submitted on March 23, 2004
- The TYPE switch selects the kind of filter as shown by the LEDs next to the switch: Low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, band-stop (notch).
- Regeneration: this increases gain at the filter corner for a sharper filter peak. In Band modes it also sets the width of the band.
- Determines the frequency center or corner of the filter.
- This increases the slope of the chosen filter curves.
- Reset Mod
- Retarts the modulation from the beginning of its cycle. Generates a trigger in TRIGGERED mode, or changes the pattern in PATTERN mode.
- Tap Tempo
- Active in TEMPO SYNC mode only. Tap a regular beat on this button, and the mod speed of the Philtre will be set at some multiple of that beat, as set by the RATE knobs.
- selects the type of wave used to modulate the filter frequency: Triangle, Sample/Hold, Triggered, Envelope, Pattern, Tempo Sync
- knob affects the modulation speed, in cooperation with the TEMPO SYNC and TAP TEMPO buttons.
- controls the depth/amplitude of the modulation (the size of the range in which the effect sweeps).
