Protostar

£295.00 (£245.83 ex VAT)

Multimode Envelope Filter Pedal with full modular synth connectivity

In stock

Description

The Protostar is the evolution of the Super FatMan envelope filter with even more pro level features.  Built in LFO, 4 filter modes, full CV patch bay, and expression/CB input, this is the most powerful/versatile envelope filter on the planet.  Also includes an end of chain compressor and dry wet mix for parallel filtering/compression effects!

Run out of space in your modular case? Simply add a WMD pedal to your arsenal and interface the two via the dedicated onboard CV patch bay!

Knobs

  • Attack – How fast the envelope will react to the incoming signal. Controls both
    attack and release.
  • Threshold – How sensitive the envelope is to the incoming signal.
  • Env Amt – Attenuverter that controls how much the envelope will affect the frequency of the filter, either negatively or positively.
  • Resonance – Synonomous with feedback or Q, this is a boost of the frequencies around the frequency cutoff.
  • Freq – Also known as cutoff, this knob’s position dictates the resting place of the frequency cutoff.
  • LFO Rate – Make the LFO go faster or slower with this knob.
  • LFO Amt – How much the LFO will affect the frequency cutoff.
  • Compression – End of chain compressor squashes the wet signal to suppress unwanted honks, and resonant oddities.
  • Dry / Wet – Amount of unaffected vs. affected signal coming through the output.

Jacks

  • Sidechain – Direct input to the envelope follower. Normalled to the input, use this to have the envelope follow an external source.
  • Exp Out – Output for the expression pedal input. Exp isn’t connected to any control internally and must be patched.
  • – Env Out – Always sending +5V until the envelope is triggered, bringing the voltage down to 0V and back.
  • + Env Out – Sends a CV signal following the envelope. Signal is 0V to +5V.
  • LFO Out – Constantly sends the triangle wave LFO CV signal, reacts to LFO rate knob.
  • LFO Rate – CV input for control over LFO rate. Sensitivity adjustable with internal trim pot.
  • LFO Amt – CV input for control over LFO amt.
  • Freq – CV Input for control over cutoff frequency.
  • Feedback – CV input for control over resonance.
  • Expression Input (back panel) – Plug a TRS cable from any expression pedal into this, patch the exp out to what you want to contol, and express yourself.
