Electrix filter factory

Postby severen » Tue Oct 02, 2007 1:37 am

I bought used Electrix filter factory.
using and testing. good sounds.
but I was a little disappointed. :(
this machine is little boring.

so I now find more flexible and weird filter.
how about sherman filter bank or any other filter?

(my filter factory make some white noise when cutoff-20k and resonance-10.
is it broken?)

Maybe it's the sound of the filter that makes it boring? A bit vanilla perhaps?

Just a guess.

I used to have one, it's an analog filter which is indistinguishable from a modelled one. There's no grit, or personality really.
I'm guessing at 20kHz and full resonance, you'd be likely to get some sort of extra sounds, so the noise doesn't seem too odd.

I'd say go the Sherman, which is nothing but grit and personality, or if you want something stranger, look at the Jomox M-Res (check http://ookpikk.googlepages.com for some detailed demos).

I feel limited.

I mean that at full resonance, at the very lower-end of the filter's range, it's probably not going to work perfectly, due to inherent limitations in the design.

Anyway, in all seriousness, the Electrix filters are extremely limited and boring. You should consider the Sherman if you want the opposite.
