Pittsburgh Modular Intros Fltr Variable State Filter

pittsburgh-modular-fltr-filterPIttsburgh Modular has introduced Fltr, a voltage controlled, analog state variable filter.

According to the company, Fltr is ‘a distilled version’ of their classic Filter module, that offers the same ‘warm and gummy sounds’ in half the space.

Here’s what they have to say about the Fltr module:

The Fltr offers a warm, organic sweep through the full frequency range. The lowpass filter is gummy and relaxed while the highpass is clean and defined. The goal was to produce a filter that does not have a single sweet spot. We worked to make every turn of a knob offer something musically engaging. Multiple filter responses are available simultaneously including lowpass, highpass, and bandpass.

Controls:

  • Frequency Knob – Adjusts the cutoff frequency of the filter.
  • Frequency CV Knob – Attenuator and/or invert the frequency CV input.
  • Resonance Knob – Adjusts the resonance (Q) of the filter.
  • Frequency CV Input Jack – Frequency CV input.
  • Input Jack – Audio input.
  • Highpass Output Jack – 12db highpass filter output.
  • Bandpass Output Jack – 12db bandpass filter output.
  • Lowpass Output Jack – 12db lowpass filter output.

Production of the Fltr is limited to 60 modules. The Fltr module is available now via the Pittsburgh Modular site for US $169.

Kush Tweaker Pushes The Envelope So Hard It’s Left Breathing Heavy

Kush has introduced Tweaker – a sidechain shaping compressor that they say combines ‘an old soul with a post-modern brain’.

Tweaker expands the range and function of its traditional compressor controls, then adds ‘Sidechain Shaper’ section which allows you to select and shape what the compressor ‘sees’ and therefore how it responds—from simple HPFs to complex and flexible multi-shelving filters.

Kush’s Gregory Scott says “This box creates a wider array of effects than any other compressor ever made”. Continue reading
