Synthrotek has announced that it has released the DIRT filter – a module that allows for distortion, mangling, wave shaping and other caustic and filter like effects.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
DIRT is our new 4HP low-pass filter / effect for the Eurorack modular synth platform.
Inspired by one of our favorite ‘noisy’ filters, the DIRT is an unapologetic filter / effect that produces interesting and unique effects via the Bias knob, accessible from the front panel.
It’s not a traditional filter; it’s an effects module with filtering, ring mod effects, wave shaping and even outright brutal harmonic distortion.
DIRT likes to square things up a bit, so throw in a triangle, sawtooth, sine or other wave forms for different style effects. Even plugging a guitar (using an external amplification module) into the DIRT produces some great sounds and heavy distortion.
