Controls

  • INPUT Level
    This control sets the input level of the signal fed into the Audio In socket. At higher settings it is possible to overload the input signal for a distorted sound if required.
  • Env Folw Level
    This control sets the sensetivity of the Envelope Follower. At higher settings, a larger ENV follower signal will be obtained.
  • LFO1 Speed
    controls LFO1 frequency.
  • LFO2 Speed
    controls LFO2 frequency.
  • High pass Filter Resonance
    This control sets the resonance level. A higher setting increases the intensity of the resonance. At very high settings it is possible to self-oscillate the filter.
  • High pass Filter CV1 Level
    This control sets the amount the CV source selected via the switch will modulate the HPF cut-off frequency: The source switch has 3 options LFO1 (up), Off/no signal (centre), Pedal (down)
    • LFO1 LFO1 is used as the source
    • center no signal is routed (no modulation effect)
    • PEDAL is a CV pedal is being used, this is the source
  • High pass Filter CV2 Level
    This control sets the amount the CV source selected via the switch will modulate the HPF cut-off frequency. When this switch is pulled out, the CV source is inverted - so the positive signal is flipped over. This is ideal so you can have, for example, the LPF sweeping up whilst the HPF is sweeping down. The source switch has 3 options Env (up), Off/no signal (centre), LFO2 (down)
    • ENV The ENV follower is the source
    • center no signal is routed (no modulation effect)
    • LFO2 LFO2 is used as the source
  • High pass Filter Cutoff
    This control sets the cut-off frequency. As the setting is increased, more and more lower frequencies are filtered out.
  • Low Pass Filter Resonance
    This control sets the resonance level. A higher setting increases the intensity of the resonance. At very high settings it is possible to self-oscillate the filter.
  • Low Pass Filter CV1 Level
    This control sets the amount the the CV sources selected via the switch will modulate the HPF cut-off frequency. When this switch is pulled out, the CV source is inverted - so the positive signal is flipped over. This is ideal so you can have, for example, the LPF sweeping up whilst the HPF is sweeping down. The source switch has 3 options LFO1 (up), Off/no signal (centre), PEDAL (down)
    • LFO1: LFO1 is used as the source
    • center: no signal is routed (no modulation effect)
    • Pedal: is a CV pedal is being used, this is the source
  • Low Pass Filter CV2 Level
    This control sets the amount the CV source selected via the switch will modulate the HPF cut-off frequency. When this switch is pulled out, the CV source is inverted - so the positive signal is flipped over. This is ideal so you can have, for example, the LPF sweeping up whilst the HPF is sweeping down. The source switch has 3 options ENV (up), Off/no signal (centre), LFO2 (down)
    • ENV: The ENV follower is the source
    • center: no signal is routed (no modulation effect)
    • LFO2: LFO2 is used as the source
  • Low Pass Filter Cutoff
    This control sets the cut-off frequency. As the setting is increased, more and more higher frequencies are filtered out.
  • Audio In Level
    This control sets the audio in level to the LPF (following the output of the HPF). This control must not be at zero to hear some effect. In normal use leave it at maximum. Use it to adjust the audio in level when using the LPF Audio In socket on the rear panel.
  • Bypass Switch
    The filter effects can be switch in (IN) or out (BYPassed). This allows you to compare the unprocessed input signal and the final processed signal for comparison.
    • IN (switch up): The effect is switch in. The signal at the output socket is the processed signal.
    • BYP (switch down): The input signal is directly routed to the output signal and the filters have no effect. The processor is literally bypassed. To hear any effect of the filters/VCA the switch must be at the IN position.
  • CV1/2 Level
    This control sets the amount the CV1/2 sources selected via the switches will modulate the VCA level. The CV1 source switch has 3 options ENV (up), Off/no signal (centre), LFO1 (down)
    • Env: The ENV follower is the source
    • center: no signal is routed (no modulation effect)
    • Thru: The VCA is held open at a level near full volume
    The CV2 source switch has 3 options LFO2 (up), Off/no signal (centre), inverted LFO2 (down)
    • LFO2: LFO2 is used as the source
    • center: no signal is routed (no modulation effect)
    • LFO2: LFO2 is inverted and used as the source
    To hear any processed signal at the output socket, the VCA must be active by applying CV. The CV 1/2 Level control must be used in conjunction with the CV source switched.
  • Output Volume
    This control sets the final main output level.

Analogue Solutions

This is a versatile filter effects unit whose filter circuits are based on the legendary Korg MS20 monosynthesiser which has a unique and distinctive sound.

The FC has been made to provide a high number of flexible modulation routings to allow many filter effects to be created.

The FC can produce anything from subtle filter sweeps right up to howling, screaming distorted doings. It can also take standard acoustic type sounds and make them `analogue' - e.g. play `real' drums through it and get analogue percussion out the other side.

Two FCs can easily be combined to produce stereo filter effects and auto-panning between speakers. This is easily achieved by linking the audio source and the LFO signals using the rear jack sockets.
