CEM LOW PASS 29B is a 24dB 4 pole low pass filter
based on the CEM 3328 filter IC. Usually we don't offer custom IC designs but in this case the sound was worth it.
One of the main distinguishing capabilities of this filter
is the switchable volume compensation for high resonance settings. Most LPF suffer from a 12dB drop in pass band
level at high resonance. The CEM 3328 IC has built-in provisions for overriding this limitation. The result is a powerful sound even with high res.
0dB or standard -12dB volume compensation
On board 3 to 1 mixer combines signals patched to the filter.
The LEVEL pot controls the amount of attenuation from the mixer.
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.
This knob varies the height of the resonant peak at the cutoff frequency of the filter.
