Sherman Filterbank 2 Desktop

The Sherman Filterbank 2 is a massively powerful and capable analog filter with an enormous frequency range and insane overdrive. It's great for making beastly sounds in both live and studio use. It's fun and with a very intuitive interface, anyone can almost instantly pick it up and start using it. With built-in MIDI, you can save both time and settings - perfect for the traveling musician.

Included are independent low, band, and high pass filters with resonance, frequency, and ADSR (positive / negative) controls, switchable between parallel or serial. The second filter includes a six-octave switch which can be synchronized with the first filter. One ADSR generator for the previously mention filters with an external output for use with even more filterbanks or modular rigs, can be triggered by an incoming signal, a second sound source, or by a gate. Also included is 1 FM input for the filters, 1 VCS overdrive with an AR generator, and 1 ring modulation input.

All of these features are bundled up in a sleek, silver-gray, affordable, and highly dynamic Sherman Filterbank 2.
