Sherman Filterbank 2 Compact

Description

Coming soon…

The compact version of the Filterbank 2 loses none of the functionality while packing everything into a low-profile desktop unit

The Filterbank is a complex stereo filter with an envelope follower, ADSR, CV & Gate inputs and, of course, front panel controls to change effects in real time. It’s a proper analogue device which interfaces with the outside world via midi & control voltages

The Filterbank is level sensitive and can be driven into smooth distortion by overdriving the filter. This changes it from a subtle device into something more brutal

According to Chris Carter: “There is pre-amp (with overdrive), two multi-mode VCF’s (with selectable harmonics), an ADSR and an AR generator, an Envelope Follower, an LFO and two VCA’s, It is , in essence, a synth module without an oscillator” – you can see the rest of his review by following the link in the Links tab above

Made in small quantities in Belgium, each Filterbank is still tested & signed off by the designer, Herman Gillis

“The Filterbank is an extremely flexible processor capable of anything from subtlety to destruction — and the best bit is that it always sounds good” – Sound on Sound

“Like any real instrument, it takes time to learn, but will reward you with bucket-loads of analogue charm. The Filterbank has more character than a Marvel franchise, and offers something that software still struggles to deliver — unmistakeable analogue charisma” – Sound on Sound

“Words cannot give enough justice.. I can tell this is a must have, this is the best piece of outboard you’ll ever find, the best filter ever, damn, it’s the reincarnation of Lucifer!!”

“Trouser-flapping, bowel-emptying bedlam. Crack open the Scrumpy and all kneel and praise those who gave birth to this absolute monster. How God intended noises to made. Respect!”
