The 4075 LOW-PASS 36B Filter is a faithful recreation of the 24db low-pass filter found in late model Arp Odysseys. The filter topology is almost identical to the Arp 4072 filter module found in later editions of the ARP 2600 synthesizer.

4075 filter demo mp3

The following two mp3s are examples of the 4075 as a self oscillating sine wave generator being modulated by the Sequencer 17a and a variety of LFOs,ADSRs and Oscillators.

Input 1-3
An on-board mixer sums the three inputs together and the level control knob sets the overall input level to the filter. Moderate gain settings provide the smoothest sound but higher gain settings are better for high resonance sounds.

1V/Oct Input
Exponential converters track linear voltage input at 1 volt per octave. This input is primarily used for keyboard tracking and pitch control of filter in self-oscillation mode.

CV Input 1
Control Voltage input with attenuator to control the depth of frequency modulation. When the knob is centered no modulation occurs. Positioning the knob to the left of zero inverts the incoming voltage (negative) and to the right the voltage is non-inverted (positive).

CV Input 2
Secondary Control Voltage input with attenuator. CV inputs are used to control the filters cutoff point. The most common input signal would be from an envelope generator or LFO.

Resonance Control
This knob varies the height of the resonant peak at the cutoff frequency of the filter.

Resonance CV
CV input to control the resonance amount with an attenuator to control depth of modulation
