Filterstation is the Audio Damage take on the classic serial/parallel/stereo dual filter topology, made famous by the
Sherman Filterbank and its many clones. Features: Twelve different filter algorithms, including two all-new MS20 emulations and our classic 914 bandpass and Filterpod lowpass models. VCA mode for tremolo and gate effects. LFO with twelve different patterns, and both internal and tempo sync modes. Envelope follower for dynamic control of filter frequency. Serial, parallel, and true stereo operating modes. Sidechain input for external signal to envelope follower. (VST3 only.) Easy-to use interface for quick programming.
Filterstation for Windows and Mac (VST3/VST2/AU) is
now available for US $49. See the Audio Damage site for audio demos.

This video captures a little
Novation LaunchPpad vs Sherman Filterbank action.
Yet another experiment using Sherman Filterbank and Novation Launchpad, this time running monome app Press Café.
No external signal was processed: the 2 internal filters are self oscillating and they’re singing by themselves!
I’m only triggering the envelopes via MIDI: the 2nd and 4th columns of buttons of the Launchpad trigger the amp Attack/Release, while the 1st and 2nd columns trigger the filter ADSR at different velocities, producing percussion sounds.
Sherman Filterbank is a powerful, real analogue, solid hardware instrument, with a unique sound. In this interview from Electronic Beat’s Slices, Herman Gillis talks about origin of the Sherman Filterbank and more. Continue reading
