Electrix Pro Filter Factory

Electrix Filter Factory Image

The Filter Factory is a stand-alone 2-unit rack module stereo/mono analog filter. Use it to filter drum loops, synth arpeggiations, vocal tracks or entire mixes! It features notch, low-, high- and band-pass filtering modes. It functions as a stereo filter with a 2-pole slope, or in mono with a 4-pole slope. Big fat knobs allow hands on real-time tweaking of the Frequency Cutoff, Resonance, LFO Depth and Speed, Distortion and more. Plus it's totally MIDI equipped for recording, triggering and sequencing tweaks of the various parameters.

The Filter Factory is great for DJ's and for Musicians. It sounds great and IS analog with digital control, stability and features. 'Momentary' buttons allow you to drop in or tap in an effect, either the filter or the distortion which is great for live situations! The LFO section allows you to generate nice sweeping filter effects or other weird modulations. There's a Tap-Tempo to match the LFO to the stuff your filtering too. Truly worth getting! It has been used by U2, John Digweed, Freddy Fresh, La Peste, Peace Off, Hellfish & DJ Producer, DJ Pure, and the Chemical Brothers.

The FilterQueen is a 2-unit half-rack design with just a few knobs and buttons and is most likely suited for DJs and easy-access live use. It's still a stereo analog filter with switchable notch, band, low and highpass filtering, envelope follower, LFO and the Momentary button. There's also a large bypass ("Engage") switch. The knobs control the filter cutoff, resonance, LFO speed, depth and more. There is no MIDI, no patch storage, no external audio input or gain controls. The EQ Killer is another 2-unit half-rack design for DJs and performers. It's basically three independent bandpass filters which can be used to filter out or isolate certain frequency ranges of music. These sold for about $300 each.

I run the output of my Roland D50 through a Filter Factory and the resulting sound is just so analog tasty! I'd highly recommend the Filter Factory to anyone who wants full real-time control of their synth's output filter. Crank up the LFO depth and frequency and its pure sonic chaos. turn it down and tweak the freq and res for some of the smoothest mono-synth tones around. Below are links to two live solos demonstrating this combination.

I run the right 1/4 out into a boss hyperfuzz, then into a electro harmonix frequency analyzer, then back into the right 1/4 input. The left 1/4 out runs into a boss dd-7 stereo into my mixer. The different tones & textures of noise is unlimited. If you want to run anything else then plug into the rca inputs.

The Filter Queen is by far the best filter (out of several) that I use in the studio. It has a deep range and its cut is sharp. I have created great mixes with this little box. Sometimes I will run vocals through it to give some warmth. It is really great for drum tracks, but I often run whole mixes strait through it. If your a dj, producer, or just a vintage junkie, this is is totally worth it.
