This video, via William Mathewson (WMD), compares the new Rossum Electro-Music Evolution filter Eurorack module to the Moog filter design of the Sub Phatty.
In this video, WMD Produce Specialist Alex Anderson conducts a comparison of the two ladder filters, using similar patches.
Anderson is a fan of the classic Moog sound and was looking to integrate a similar voice into his live performance rig, which includes a WMD/SSF Monolith Case. He brought in his Sub Phatty to do a ‘semi-clinical’ comparison and decided to make quick a video to share the results.
Filtering a single saw wave, the filters sound fairly similar. But the video’s real focus is exploring some of the key differences, the Evolution’s Q compensation and “species” knobs.
Both synths are recorded directly into a Tascam DR40’s external inputs.
