Dannysound Multimode Ladder Filter – Full DIY Kit

£146.00 (Excl. VAT)

The MML Filter is  a twist on the classic ‘Mini’ transistor ladder design with new modes and more CV control! This new skiff-friendly version includes bipolar CV attenuverters for normal or inverted CV control of the filter cutoff, plus a RED MODE that enables positive feedback distortion within the core of the filter.

New DIY version! The majority of parts are now SMD pre-soldered making for a much easier build.

Description

The Multi-Mode Ladder (MML) Filter is a twist on the most classic ‘mini’ transistor ladder low pass filters. This filter updates the classic 4-pole ladder design to provide Band Pass and High Pass filter responses as well as the traditional Low Pass filter, this module also adds CV control over the resonance as well as two frequency CV inputs.

The circuit features a fully discreet transistor design with an op-amp buffered output, this allows soft saturation of the input signal to get the classic overdriven tones of the ladder filter. A bass compensation circuit has been included to retain the bass response in Low Pass mode when the resonance is increased. The bass compensation also helps to improve the response of the High Pass filter. The bass compensation can be removed if the user wishes to have a more classic response (see mods section in build doc).

This new skiff-friendly version includes bipolar CV attenuverters for normal or inverted CV control of the filter cutoff frequency plus a RED MODE (accessible by holding the mode button) that enables positive feedback distortion within the core of the filter. In red mode the filter will self-oscillate at a low frequency when the resonance control is increased. This self oscillation combines with the input signal to produce the distortion effect.
