Lowpass gate

Just tube and vactrols, no chips or transistors etc. Can't make it any smoother. Also consumes only 100 mA. Uses a "high-perveance" dissimilar dual triode intended for TV tuners so it gives good performance on low plate voltage.

This is a prototype, the final version will be a dual. Video by Mike Weeks. Give us a couple of months to finish some production units--still don't have front panels yet.

I'm not familiar with lowpass gates. What should I be listening for or noticing?
Navs
LPG's are a combination of VCA and LPF, traditionally using vactrols. People like LPGs for their soft response and way they ring out. You can open a LPG with a short trigger and the volume & brightness will decay exponentially. You don't need an additional envelope to get a nice, plucked sound. The video is not informative as the envelope used is too long and the sequence too fast to be able to judge this characteristic.

Thanks much for the explanation, Navs.

I agree! may we hear a trigger-strikes-only (i.e. no-envelope-or-lfo-modules-involved) demo, please?


cheers
