Wiard

The newest module in the Wiard system is the Borg Filter. The Borg uses a completly new filter design using "Vactrol"-based electronics. There are two seperate filters in this module -- each implemented as a 2-pole multi-mode. They can be linked as a 4-pole, or used as two independent filters. The Vactrol circuitry provides a certain amount of slew, giving the filter a very woody and warm tone.

The Borg also contains two LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators). Low frequency might be a misnomer, since the oscillators will track to a 15 Khz audio rate. These two oscillators can be used for filter modulation, or for clocking of a Sequantizer, vibrato on a Classic VCO and wave sequencing of a Waveform City.

This is another example of the excellent design work done by Grant and the Wiard team. Where did the Borg name come from?
