Dave Smith Instruments recently introduced the DSM01 Curtis Filter – a version of his classic Sequential-style filter in a Eurorack module.
Smith calls the DSM01 Curtis Filter ‘the very heart and soul of the Dave Smith sound’.
In this video, via sonicstate, Nick Batt takes a look at the DSM01 Curtis Filter and puts it through its paces.
The Dave Smith Instruments DSM01 Curtis Filter
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 available now, priced at US $179. See the DSI site for more info.
