Rack mounted effects unit with RCA & 1/4" jack ins and outs
Notes: We have to admit being more than a little proud when thinking of the Action Filter's history. Twelve years ago we made the first version of this still popular stereo-filter with no end in sight. It still is built upon the same basic principle: ACTION!
Neither MIDI nor control voltage decide about filter sweeps and cues but you. Action Filter demands and supports your intuition and creativity. Reign over frequencies and rhythm instead of being a victim of technique.
Like its predecessors, Action Filter 4 consists of a high-/lowpass filter-combination per stereo channel. Together, these either work as bandpass- or notch-filter with variable bandwidth and individual resonance per filter.
Unspectacular but a spectacle nevertheless: Beside the mandatory RCA in- and outputs, Action Filter 4 is equipped with 1/4"-jacks. In addition, the FILTER MODE switch made it to the unit's front, labeled as STYLE.
Who is the Action Filter 4 dedicated to?
... of course for all action heroes! With jack- and RCA-connectors, Action Filter 4 is best suited for the DJ booth as well as for studio applications. You can use it to process full tracks or add that "certain something" to individual audio tracks. Emphasize or kill specific frequency bands and - on top of it - have lots of fun actively playing with frequencies! Simply: ACTION!
Notes: The Kick Lancet generator is a handy analogue percussion synthesizer with priority to kick-drum sounds.
The heart of the Kick Lancet's sound structure is an analogue oscillator that produces sine and square waves, which can blend seamlessly from one to the other. 2 independent envelope generators with a decay/release phase can modulate the oscillator's frequency and the VCA. Additionally the VCO pitch can be modulated by the fast LFO (3Hz to 3 kHz, triangle). Noise and a pulse signal can be added in the mixer section. Vermona have a balls-controller for making it really big.
The Kick Lancet can be triggered by MIDI but beside that there are 3 different trigger inputs. A gate trigger, which impulse can trigger the Kick Lancet in normal way with additional accent or completely dynamical depending on the incoming voltage, a simply short current trigger (i.e. momentary foot switch) and an audio input, which offers the possibility to trigger the Kick Lancet by an audio signal statically or dynamically. Drum pads can also be connected here.
Four-channel voltage controlled polarizer featuring four identical attenuators - 10HP
Notes: You never can have enough modules that influence levels - be it for audio signals or control voltages.
quadroPOL is a four-channel polarizer module. It can attenuate any incoming signal, in-phase or out of phase. One of its most special features is the way each channel's level control works. Instead of having one dedicated zero-point, it has a "dead zone" where the input signal will be completely suppressed. Thus, you will easily find the off-position, even without a centre-click, while, at the same time you'll be able to create extremely sensitive level increases.
Further outstanding features are:
- A channel's output signal will optionally be forwarded to the next one, which allows the use of quadroPOL as a mixer-module. This way you can sum up to four signals.
- The module can be controlled via control voltages. Beside manually setting the level you can use each channel as VCA. You never can have enough VCAs in a modular system, can you?
- quadroPOL's circuits work with a four-quadrant-multiplier. This means the module is a ringmodulator without compromises - sorry - four ringmodulators.
Do you have 10 HP unused rack-space left in your Eurorack-system? You should consider getting a quadroPOL module. It is so versatile that it's hard to live without one, once you've gotten your hands on one of it.
Notes: The TAI-4 not only makes it easy to get balanced signals out of or into a modular system, it also does that job with superior audio quality. Above, it galvanically separates the inputs from the outputs by using a total of four high-end audio transformers and thus prevents unwanted noise interferences.
We decided to uses switches instead of potentiometers for adjusting the gain levels. This ensures accurate and equal leveling of stereo signals.
The TAI-4 is an extremely useful module when it comes to integrate external studio processors, or the opposite, connecting the modular system to outboard equipment or DAWs.
1U spring reverb unit using a spring tank from Accutronics, ideal for use with any kind of audio signal - UK power adapter included
Notes: Finally the VSR 3.2 is here! It is the enhanced successor of the Vermona VSR-3 - Vintage Spring Reverb.
Most of the features, like the AccuBell spring tank (type 9), the TONE control as well as in and output stages are equal.
What has been improved is the way EFFECT STOP is working. Compared to its predecessor VSR 3.2 offers the possibility to determine where EFFECT STOP cuts the signal path: PRE or POST the spring tank. In the new PRE mode the input of the spring tank is cut from the signal path, so the reverb's decay isn't abruptly stopped when pressing EFFECT STOP and still can fade out.
The VSR 3.2 is suitable for all kinds of input signals like synthesizer, organs, guitars, vocals etc. It's available as of now from stock. It is already listed in our latest price list from 2015-05-01.
