Sherman Electronics FilterBank

Sherman FilterBank Image

The FilterBank is an excellent musical processing device for creating filter sweeps and effects or damaging your sound for even cooler effects! It's a 24dB/octave 4-pole dual filter module with 1 input and 2 outputs. The filters can be dual mono or linked for stereo. The filter is genuine analog circuitry with serious overdrive for the grungiest of sounds! The filter itself is extremely flexible and offers hi-pass to low-pass filtering with LFO, ADSR and input signal modulation capabilities. Most important functions can be controlled via MIDI as well.

Running a few dance loops through the FilterBank for your next dance hit or live in a DJ set will most certainly get your heart pumping and the creative juices flowing! It's very hands-on like most analog equipment, yet it does not feature memory storage for favorite settings. The Sherman FilterBank shines when it comes to producing the famous sound of filtered loops and is already being used by William Ørbit, Fluke, Fatboy Slim, BT, Stereolab, The Crystal Method, Groove Armada, and The Chemical Brothers.

In use the Sherman reveals itself as more of a complex overdrive unit than what most people associate with an analog filter. It's a hard monster to tame, but when it goes, it [beep] ing goes. It looks great too.
