Mystic Circuits 0HP Low Pass Filter (passive LP VCF)

Published on Aug 20, 2018 DivKidVideo

"TIMING INDEX / SECTIONS BELOW. First of all I should apologise for calling the Timbre control Drive all the way through the video, total brain fart my end on that one. Here's the new Low Pass Filter from the 0HP line of passive utilities/modules/mini-wizards (whatever you want to call them). It's a low pass filter with cut off and timbre control and a single input and output. I go through how it sounds, sequence it, modulate it (audio rates too), play drums through it and make drones with it. Check out the other 0HP videos below and feel free to skip through the video at the timing index links below too. Cheers!


00:00 welcome, hello, patch previews

01:05 What is it? Features etc

01:36 Low pass filter sound - filtering squares and adjusting cut off and timbre

03:43 Modulating with a looping envelope, this also goes up to audio rate modulation too.

04:52 Filter drums - some lovely glitchy tones come out!

06:12 Filter synth lines in a typical sequenced synth part against a beat in the background.

08:05 Exploring feedback, overdrive, saturation, loveliness!

10:43 Creating drones - exploring saturation with feedback, modulating cut off and timbre more slowly for evolving tones."

"Apart from some obvious wear to the side cheeks and 2 missing caps this String machine is in fully working condition. It has some fantastically useful modifications undertaken by an experienced engineer: switchable longer string attack time pot, switch string retrigger off for lush overlapping chords, piano/organ decay speed pot, brass attack extension pot, brass sustain pot, brass filter cutoff pot, and brass filter resonance pot.

All these mods elevate this synth to lush and powerful new levels!"

Noise VCA is a noise generator with variable state VCF and VCA
All in one module. "The white noise generator, followed by a VCF with variable values ​​(switched between bandwidth, high or lowpass characteristics) with adjustable resonance (Q) and VCA, makes this module ideal for most standard noise applications. the filter provides a wide range of rich and colorful noise sounds, the VCF has a second input that allows you to combine external sound with noise or completely replace the VCF noise input with an external source.
What's more, there is a subsonic output that provides a random resume for modulation.
CV VCA mode can be switched between exponential or linear expansions with the muting option when the switch is in the middle position; The "Offset" knob allows you to move the VCA starting point by adding negative or positive voltage to the CV VCA input."
