The Dave Smith Modular Comes To Eurorack


Dave Smith Instruments has announced that it is now shipping their new Dave Smith Modular DSM01 Curtis Filter for Eurorack modular synthesizers. 

They call the DSM01 Curtis Filter ‘the very heart and soul of the Dave Smith sound’.

The DSM01 is a compact, 8 HP Eurorack-format module. The filter is a resonant low-pass design that can be switched between -12 dB and -24 dB operation and driven into self-oscillation in -24 dB mode. A Boost switch lets you overdrive the input stage for more aggressive coloration.

In addition to its Curtis filter, the DSM01 provides its own responsive, low-noise VCA with LED CV indicator. There are two separate outputs—one pre-amplifier and the other post-amplifier. This not only gives you added signal routing flexibility, but also frees your system’s existing VCAs for other tasks.

The Dave Smith Instruments DSM01 Curtis Filter module is priced at US $179. See the DSI site for more info.

  1. Of all filter types out there the one I don´t like/care about is the Curtis filter. I has a kind of harsh metallic sound that I dislike. On the other hand I think it’s just the oposite to the Moog ladder (which I love), so sure the Curtis will enchant some folks.
