What about … filterbanks?

Shaping sounds is something to get lost in. Turning knobs on a new module for hours, without noticing how time flies by is something most synthesists have experienced before. The number of options to shape a sound are almost unlimited. Here we are looking at one obvious way to sculpt sound – filtering. When you take the concept of a filter and implement it several times into one module it results in something that is called filterbank. This type of circuit consists of a number of filters most times sharing one input and one output. The input signal passes...

Herman Gillis with his legendary Sherman Filterbank at SUPERBOOTH17

These prototypes did not have MIDI. At the same time, the designer Herman Gillis also made 9 Sherman CHAOSBANKS. After a lot of people asked for more Filterbanks and Chaosbanks, Herman decided to update the prototype model of the Filterbank with MIDI and at that time, he added even more features...
