[Available now!] Original Haible String-Filter re-run 2016

Post by nordlead » Tue Feb 23, 2016 7:48 am

As I've received a number of questions regarding the availability of the Haible String Filter pcbs, I'm contemplating to do a re-run of the original String Filter board if there is enough interest (similar to the re-run of the Vocoder pcb).
That means a new production based on the original files (= no changes at all), made in Germany as the original boards.

Jürgen's original String Filter page / demos/ docs

Price is expected to be EUR 27 per pcb.
(Please note that you need 2 pcbs for a 40 band filter.)

UPDATE: The (new) String Filter pcbs as well as some
other original Haible "vintage" boards (new old stock) are now available here.

Great suggestion Ralf, I'll take one.
I'm looking for nothing at this moment in time

Coolest filter bank ever!!!!
:goo:

Did you know you can ping these with triggers?
I added a group of gyrator EQ circuits when I built a couple of these (similar to the "Performer" EQ section of JH's rack build).
Extra input and atten for feedback style patches, too.
High settings of Res can result in a reverb-like effect.
Yes, I love this JH design!
Do it!
Do it!
:hyper:

I would buy at least one set.

I don't expect to get the sound of real string instruments (this needs some physical modeling of the bow/string system at least!) , but I want to gain some "organic" quality for otherwise electronic sounds.
I wonder what this filter will sound like, paired with MI. Rings :woah:

I'm interested in a pair of PCBs but probably won't have the cash until the end of March or end of April.

I know, but I want a new run, with tested and supported boards.

The original boards have been tested working. I've just built one, no problems whatsoever.

I would like a set (2 boards, 1 complete filter).

triple chorus is very easy no problems

the string filter is easy also even with the sliders and separate outs all the information is there

its just needs a big panel space

Since the string filter needs such a large panel space and 2 PCBs are required, would it be better to have the new run on a single PCB?

I'm a bit on the fence here - a new redesign of the boards will take much more time and testing (and I'm already drowning in work), while a re-run of the original boards would mean they'd be available in about 2-3 weeks ...
so I'll probably start with a re-run and keep the idea of a redesign for later ...

If I understand correctly JH's schematics the Performer EQ and Cello/Viola/Violin Filters are not part of these 2 boards, so the panel will be pretty simple : 5 pots, 4 toggle switches, 4 jacks (unless you want to go down the 40-slider road... :deadbanana: ).

4 pots (input, res, cv, spread). And for those who didn't follow the E-M thread, the spread control is incorrect in the schematic, but correct in the wiring diagram.
