VCF1E – extended ‘ebbe und flut’ VCF1 multimodal filter
The CS-8 VCF1E is a very versatile, fully analogue, programmable and voltage- controlled filter (VCF).
Two modes are possible. The classical filter mode with 12 selectable different functions (low-, high,- band-passes) and the phaser mode with also 12 phaser-sounding combining modes (4x phaser-, 2x low-, 2x high,- 4x band-passes).
For the classic filter mode 3 different resonance modes are available, where each of these generate for each filter function again different sound impressions. So, there is no rule how to sound a certain selected resonance mode. It depends on the selected function.
With a further 4-pos. rotary switch the resonance emphasize is dialable, which provides further sound nuances. This is also equipollent to the amplitude of the self-oscillation. An illuminated tactile switch allows to add a unique 2nd harmonic distortion to the resonance sound.
The frequency range (cutoff) goes from 2 Hz to 40 kHz. A gain controller allows input-to-output gains from -20 db to 0 db. A clip LED light up just before output clipping.
