The Blue Lantern Millipede is an analog filter which uses two modern equivalent ssm2164 IC's v2164 made by cool audio to perform it's magic. This specific filter however enables the user to change the phase of each pole or filter cell. It features four filter cells in total. This is similar to the Blue lantern Asteroid Operator Station VCF. The Asteroid Operator Station VCF features 8 Static filter outputs. Those 8 flavors were acheived by exploring the circuit found in the millipede vcf and internally installing the resistor ratio for that flavor.
On the millipede vcf users are empowered to search out more exotic flavors themselves. Operation is simple. Users first have all the poles counter clockwise and the three switches set on mute. This will set the filter as a dark Low pass filter. Then users turn on a pole with the switch and turn the know to hear the change. Pole 3 by default is always turned on, otherwise there would be no sound if all the poles were muted. Having all the poles set clockwise and active can easily get into brutal sounding territories.
There is also an on board diode limiter circuit to help round off really harsh tones. This is activated via switch.
The audio input has a good amount of gain, so users don't always have it fully clockwise. There is also a capacitor selector switch just like the other Blue Lantern filters. This modifies the rez peak.
