Berlin-based instrument manufacturer KOMA Elektronik says that they are ‘slowly moving into the world of modular synthesizers’.
The SVF-201’s filter circuit is built up with optical parts (vactrols), designed to deliver excellent studio audio quality and a ‘unique warm analogue sound’ The extensive patching possibilities make the module a versatile tool.
Inputs and Outputs
The SVF-201 offers CV inputs with attenuators for Cutoff, Resonance and Select/Mix Out, where the last one allows the user to instantly sweep between the three different filter characteristics. The module also has adjustable gain up to +6dB, which gives the user to opportunity send a (slightly) overdriven signal into the circuit, which results in MS20-like filter sweeps.
The unit offers four audio outputs that can be used independently of each other at the same time, a High Pass, Band Pass, Low Pass and the unique CV’able Mix Out. The Mix Out out let’s you sweep continuously through the other three outputs by means of a knob and control voltage.
Here’s a demo of the new filter in action:
The SVF-201 is now available at selected KOMA dealers worldwide and directly from KOMA. MRSP: 259 EUR (Incl. EU VAT) | 230 EUR (Excl. EU VAT). The SVF-201 is currently being offered as part of a holiday bundle. See the Koma site for details.
