Oberheim Voltage Controlled Filter - New Flickr Shot

flickr by ruk777. Trip. Never saw one of these before.

Caption for the archives:
"This was my very first 'pedal' back in 1986. Again, this was one piece of the analog synthesizers Oberheim and others were inventing back in the '70s. There are two effects in this box. One is a very cool sounding envelope filter. VERY touch sensative. It also has a "random arppegiator", or "sample filter hold". This circuit was stolen by Z-Vex for his "Ooh-Wah" and "Seek-Wah" pedals. It basically takes the note and throws it around to different tones, if that makes sense. You can control the speed."

  1. "stolen by Z-Vex"???? there is a BIG difference between a sample and hold (this pedal) and a sequencer (Z-Vex) even if the sequencer has a "random" mode. so even in function this is different, not to mention an entirely different circuit.
