Product Description

The LxD is a dual-response, two channel, direct-coupled, Low Pass Gate, which utilizes vactrols in order to provide simultaneous control over the Amplitude and Frequency Spectrum of an INput Signal. It is, in essence, a VCFA (Voltage Controlled Filter Amplifier). Unlike the Optomix, the LxD offers two different filter responses. CH. 1 offers a 12db/ Octave response that is mildly-resonant, while CH. 2 offers a 6bd/ Octave that is non-resonant. The OUTput of CH. 1 is normalled to the INput of CH. 2. This normalization puts the two channels in series, which is similar to the VCF into VCA arrangement made popular by many monosynths of the 1970’s.

• CH. 1 is a mildly-resonant 12db/ Octave low pass response and CH. 2 a non-resonant 6db/ Octave low pass response
• The output of CH. 1 is normalled to the input of CH. 2 putting the two channels in series to form the VCF to VCA arrangement
• The sound of the LxD is quite unique from the VCF/ VCA in those classic synths though, as it is fine tuned to compliment the more harmonically complex sound sources common in the modular synthesizers of today
• Classic VCF->VCA arrangement in small 4hp module
• STRIKE INput allows use of Gate signal to trigger Low Pass Gate circuit, "plucking" or "striking" the vactrol
• Low noise, low distortion, smooth, natural-sounding circuit
• Direct coupled, process audio or control signals
• Utilizes 2 vactrols
