STG Soundlabs Sea Devils Filter (MU/5U/Large Format)
NoiseBug Price : $250
This is a very special voltage controllable audio (Lowpass) filter capable of distinctive and nuanced modified tones. The resonant character is musikal, but not tame... This will compliment most any collection of VCF's, since it is a more unique topology.
A three pole diode ladder lowpass filter with voltage controlled
There are two famous 3 pole diode ladder lowpass filters, one of them
was in a little silver box of a synthesiser with integrated sequencer
that was used to make "Acid Tracks" and the other one was was in a
big suitcase of a synthesiser with a silver faceplate and semi-
integrated sequencer that was used to make tracks on acid often. this
is the latter. I'm not going to name any names here, but I'm hoping I
don't have to mention any voltage controlled studios or electronic
music studios to establish the lineage of this filter topology.
I can't promise this thing will make Sea Devils appear on your lawn
or models of airplanes fly from one side of the stage to the other,
crashing into a papier mache sun at the end of your song, so please
don't be offended if these things fail to happen while using the
filter, presuming you'd want to own one.
This module features a PCB designed by Detachment 3 Engineering via Yves Usson.
*A NOTE on Module finish: All STG Soundlabs MU/5U modules are anodized to look "vintage, original Moog modular". This process does make STG Soundlabs front panels impervious to rusting, and the graphics will never flake off. However, the black anodization is susceptible to inconsistencies and what some may refer to as aesthetic imperfections. The faceplates are not shiny, and are vintage looking. Please understand this before ordering.
