koma-state-variable-filter-eurorackKOMA Elektronik is now shipping the SVF-201 State Variable Filter – a new modular for Eurorack modular synthesizers.

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 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.
