SHERMAN FILTERBANK The FilterBank is an excellent musical processing device for creating filter sweeps and effects or damaging your sound for even cooler effects! It's a 12 or 24dB/octave 4-pole dual filter module with one signal input and two audio outputs. The filters can be dual mono or linked, with crossfading from hi-pass to low-pass filtering with LFO and ADSR modulation. The filter is genuine analog circuitry with serious overdrive for the grungiest of sounds! What's new in the Filterbank 2 are five three-way toggle switches which have been added to the front panel as well as an optional foot controller jack in the back for controlling filter cutoff or bypass switching. The new toggles offer hi-frequency boost/cut for the input, the Sensitrig envelope follower, variable sine or sawtooth LFO shape, and pitch-tracking.
Running a few dance loops through the FilterBank for your next dance hit or live in a DJ set will most certainly get your heart pumping and the creative juices flowing! It's very hands-on like most analog equipment, yet it does not feature memory storage for your favorite settings. The Sherman FilterBank 2 shines when it comes to producing the famous sound of filtered loops and has been used by William Ørbit, Fluke, Fatboy Slim, Stereolab, The Grid, Leftfield, U2, Apollo 440, Latinsizer and The Chemical Brothers.

Latinsizer info: In this project Pepe Mogt works with a very synthetic and basic set of musical tools to create a quirky approach to electronic music exemplified by "Ritmo 55", the first track released by Latinsizer which appeared on the Nortec Experimental CD. This approach could be described as a combination of the melodic work of early synth Pop classics such as Eno-era Roxy Music and Switched on Bach, modular synth based artists like Tangerine Dream and the grit of urban Tijuana, Latinsizer "live at MUtek.mx CD" has a more noise dance oriented aproach without loosing his analog roots
Latinsizer becomes an alternate project to Nortec, and particularly, to Fussible, recently playing at experimental and dance music festivals like Mutek or Decibel, currently is working on his new album and EP, Celofán is a video of his latest works.
