Belgrad, klangbau twin peak resonator ;), random source vcqf.
An allusion to a place that exists only in our mind, in our senses, that is ever-changing and mutable, but is nonetheless real. It is delimited by the references of the horizon, by the physical limits, defined by light, and it happens in time.

I have been looking at a few filters lately.

WMD Aperture seems to be a really strong filter...8th order.
It can make some really knarly sounds.
It is bandpass and you basically set the frequency of the center of the passband,
and then the width of the passband.

LISTEN HERE
AND WOW, HERE for some cool FM

Also, for about the same price Xoac Belgrad.
It has 10 filter types, all versions of a dual peak filter.
Most filter types are 2nd order although at least one is 4th order.
And it can sound silky smooth, or knarly. Whatever you want.

Decisions, Decisions


Also ─ Intellijel µVCF multimode filter ─ $160, tracks 1V/oct, 2 pole high and lowpass, 1 pole bandpass.
This filter can be clean or fully resonant till oscillation as a VCO.

Also ─ bastl cinnamon multimode filter ─ inexpensive at $129, tracks 1 V/oct until you engage one or the other added distortion circuits.
Another 2 pole, 2 pole and 1 pole bandpass filter.

I agree with this statement.

Really I just wanted to say how much I like that you want to put a turd into a filter and eat it on the other side. :hihi:

I can't be the only one, right? :tu:

I've found myself going WAY full circle and back to an old habit -- eyeballing the 4ms SMR. And then I look at the price, and image what else I could get for that. Rinse, repeat.

Nope, nope nope. Can't, won't. A bunch of BP's will get a good deal of what I want out of it.

Previously had the Morpheus filter, and it was very very cool, but a little too much for me at the moment, so I went for the best analog multimode I could find (being the Polaris).
Polaris :love:
The Polaris covers a lot of ground, has many modes, input gain, output distortion, and CVable resonance.
An added bonus on the Intellijel filters is that they’ll run clean enough to use with polyphonic OSCs like Shapeshifter, Plaits, and such. :tu:
good ear, polaris has the same guts as dr octature (per d.dixon in one of those old threads.) and dr octature was created in the light of an SH-101 or Jupiter-6.
