VDL6 stands for Vertical Diode Low-pass with 6 poles in the transfer function, which means a maximum slope of 36 db/octave.
This filter is constructed as a true dual filter containing two identical and independent filters A and B. Each filter, A and B, provides 4 simultaneous outputs with different slopes, which are clearly different in sound. By mixing and/or subtracting and/or sharing of the overall 8 outputs one obtain mighty musical, creative possibilities. The module is designed with a width of 19 PU (part units, 1 PU=5.08mm) for installation into a 3 HU (height units) modular rack with a built in ±12 V power supply.
Furthermore the module is equipped with CV (Control Voltage)-inputs for cutoff-frequency (FREQ) and resonance (RESO), separately for each channel that true and independent dual/stereo audio operating is possible.
Design and implementation meet highest technical standards concerning usability, sound quality, and electromagnetic immunity. The entire design and production work was done in Germany.
• Control knob for Input A and Input B: Attenuates incoming audio between -∞ dB and 0 dB.
• Freq Control: Adjusts the cutoff frequency for both channels between 2Hz and 42 kHz.
• Det B Control: Detunes the cutoff frequency of VCF B over ±3.6 octaves.
• Reso Control: Adjusts the resonance (Q-factor) between zero (1) and self-oscillation (∞) for both filters.
• Det B control – "detunes" the resonance (Q-Faktor) of VCF B about ± 1/3of the total range
• 6dB, 12dB, 18dB, and 24/36 dB filter slopes available for both filters.
