Fixed filter bank?

Author Fixed filter bank?
DonKartofflo
I just thought of later adding a fixed filter bank to my rack, since i love what you can do with it. I have investigated a little, I love the addac filterbank and the individual envelope followers, also the doepfer a-128 looks pretty neat...
couldn't find any more fixed eurorack filter banks... any more options to consider? hmmm.....

I have the A-128 and find it very useful. Obviously the fixed nature of it means that it's not the most bombastic part of my modular, but when you're trying to sub-mix a complex patch i find being able pull out 3k or add some 10k sparkle really useful.

Also, as always with Doepfer, great value!

oops sorry i didnt see that you already knew about the ADDAC one =]

I really like my recently acquired Doepfer A-104, which has a lot in common with a fixed filter bank. As Banalism points out, it's not a module that screams at you. But you can change a sound from "this is a synth" to "this could be a real instrument". The "organ pedal" thing here depends very much on the shaping performed by an A-104:

Some have had success with the A-129-1/2 vocoder system as a fixed filter bank. 15 bands!

This is the first thing from ADDAC I can definitely say I want. Don't know if I'll buy it this year, but I do want it.

Wendy Carlos' famous (and very early) vocoder used a hacked Moog 914 fixed filter bank for the analysis section, so that makes sense (the module everything in the top row ties into ... edit: or is it the 914 on the left? photo is too small hmmm..... ):

EMW has one too: http://www.electronicmusicworks.com/eurorack/fixed-filter-bank.html

And, of course, Make Noise. http://www.makenoisemusic.com/FXDf.shtml

ADDAC offers custom frequencies on request for their filterbank.
any idea of who I could improve the frequencies?
or should I just order the standart?

For a totally different beast you could build yourself a serge resonant eq, they have kits at synthcube I think. It's currently one of my favorite things in my rack. More of a howling feedback/distortion module than subtle Moog filtering I think though...

I also find the A-104 extremely useful, and I often use it the way I imagine I'd use a fixed filter bank.

Check these ones out, by the way:

Ladik 4HP Fixed Filter Bank
EMW Fixed Filter Bank

I haven't tried either, but they seem interesting.

The Serge Resonant EQ sems insane, by the way. That's a one hot module.

There is also the new Make Noise FXDf. It doesn't have all the functionality of the ADDAC, but it's only 4 HP and cheaper.

Analogue systems has two versions..

The ems synthi version.. and one with more cut and slightly different bands..

Lovely soft natural shaping..

I always find it pleasing to use..

It effects lfo shapes in odd ways too..

lol lol lol yeah "It doesn't have all the functionality" it's like comparing the ADDAC 601 to Buchla 296.. Dead Banana

oh btw, love my ADDAC 601, works wonders with a Cwejman RES-4 and MMF-1.. the new Sputnik looks interesting. thumbs up

Will you sell some fully built ?

Is there anyone out there who has owned both the ADDAC and the fxdf/rxmx combo who could share some of their experiences with both? I love the sound of the ADDAC module, but it seems like the make noise combo might go a bit further than it in terms of features, though at the cost of some HP. Is there anything I'd miss from one by going with the other? Looking to add a fixed filter bank to my system this week and would be great to hear some opinions

I got your pm and put the FXDF on hold. Given that, you might also check out the 4MS Spectral Filter.

The FXDF is great for isolating certain frequencies, but the other modules will do much more. Currently, I have a ton of filters that is why I am letting the FXDF go. I'll hold it for awhile, but get back if you don't want it.
fwheel
I've recently acquired RxMx and am planning on buying the FxDf to accompany it, but now I've also got my eyes on the ADDAC 601. Like GryphonP3 asked last year (without getting an answer), I'm curious if there's anyone who has used both or if it's redundant to have both of them at the same time?

Also, is there any newer modules that I should consider?

Serge res eq, there is a moog filter bank in DIY which you could get someeone to make for you, there is also the Fonik triple bandpass.
spacessound
I have the elby version of the serge resonant EQ. Doesn't scream but a really distinct tone that I dig. Not super thrilling but sounds great.
xenosapien
the BASTL Instruments "Propust" should fall into that category...

Not sure if it compares to the sound of all of the above at all since I never tested them, but it sure as hell wins in terms of rack space and power consumption:

2HP
passive

lol
