Blue Lantern Diode VCF Steiner 10 Stage??

Post by jjmcclear » Sat Feb 09, 2019 10:23 pm

Anyone here own a Blue Lantern Steiner VCF 10 stage, that I can hear? I love the one's I've had, but they are huge. Didn't care for the Forbidden Planet Steiner, in comparison. Wondering what Blue Lantern's take on it, sounds like. I can't find a demo anywhere.

Thanks

Jess

I have one, it's very aggressive sounding. I'll also say that it's by far the noisiest damn filter in my entire rack, and picks up interference from just about anything nearby. I don't know if that's inherent to the design or what, but it's definitely noticeable.

Wondering if the interference is from the 2N2222 transistors , presuming it uses those : they figure in several layouts.
Can you get milder tones from it ?

Got one

It can sound wild or tamed !

You can tame it if you Want With a trimpot on the back (it’s sold tamed)

Here is the best vidéo I know :

None of these comments seem to be about the Steiner. I just got mine, sounds pretty damn decent I'd say, price was great. I'd like to know how it compares to other Steiners, this is my first one.

Every single one of these comments is about the Steiner.

Ahhhhh, just realized I got the V2 hence my confusion. No wild or tamed on this one it seems, no noise or interference though.

I had the 6 HP version a while back but also had Forbidden Planet and so I sold it, as they were too similar in my eyes to justify keeping both. I don't remember mine being particularly noisy or sensitive to interference, but then I had it in a mini-case with just 3 or 4 other modules.

I think the new 10 HP one still has a trimmer for adjusting the resonance, it's just on the front instead of the back. Look for the little "Q" to the right of the "Rez" knob.

Haha glad I could help, yeah it looks like it's kind of camouflaged among the panel graphics.
