Yew Tree Magic's Steampunk Shruthi Sound Designer Edition

This one in via Martin Walker of Sound on Sound and Yew Tree Magic. In addition to the Steampunk style case, there are a number of mods available. If you already own a Shruthi SMR4-mkII, step-by-step guides for the mods are also available on site.

"Housed in a polished wood and brass steampunk-styled casing, the SDE (Sound Designer Edition) is an extensive mod by Martin Walker, giving a host of extra features to the Shruthi-1 with the SMR-4 MkII analogue filter, including:

SHAPES: six filter shapes (LP2, LP4, BP2, BP4, HP2 and Notch).

FLAVOUR: six resonant types from extra IR3109 acid squelch, soft resonance, germanium limiting, to evil half-wave rectification.

FMOD: allows the audio signal to directly modulate the filter cutoff frequency - cue rubbery, wobbly sounds and FM mayhem!

DRIVE: for adding overdrive and distortion effects.

FEED: variable filter feedback for extra tonal changes and circuit-bent mayhem.

RESCMP: three different resonance compensation treatments mimicking Roland, Moog and Korg filter types.

Extensive audio demos and step-by-step circuit mod guides are provided at, so you can add any or all of the mods to your own Shruthi SMR4-mkII synth."
