Borrowed from the Lifeforms SV-1 Eurorack module, the Lifeforms Binary Filter from Pittsburgh Modular is a classic voltage-controlled, analog, state-variable filter, which offers a wide variety of sounds from very smooth and natural to unpredictable and distorted. The filter offers multiple responses simultaneously including low-pass, high-pass, and band-pass.

With the stable mode selected, the filter provides a warm, organic sweep through the full frequency range. The low-pass is gummy and relaxed, while the high-pass is clean and defined. Switching to unstable mode and without an incoming audio signal, the filter produces a high-quality voltage-controlled sine wave. Adjusting the Q while in unstable mode modifies the shape of the waveform. Add an incoming audio signal to the unstable mode and the output changes dramatically, resulting in anything from ringing fuzz to heavy distortion. The Binary Filter module is 8hp wide, 0.9" (24mm) deep, and requires 22mA of power. The module includes a ribbon cable.

Binary Filter Controls
  • Frequency Knob: Adjusts the center frequency of the filter

  • Frequency CV Knob: Frequency control voltage attenuverter
  • Resonance CV Knob: Resonance (Q) control voltage attenuverter
  • Stable | Unstable Mode Switch: Switch between stable and unstable modes
  • Frequency CV In Jack: CV input used to modulate the filter frequency
  • Resonance CV In Jack: CV input used to modulate the filter resonance
  • Input Jack: Audio signal input
  • Low-pass Output Jack: Low-pass filter response output
  • Band-pass Output Jack: Band-pass filter response output
  • High-pass Output Jack: High-pass filter response output
