Most ridiculous envelope filter

I'm looking for an evelope filter that has the sonic equivalent of your face bouncing off of an old rubber gymnasium floor, or a duck on acid. The funkier, more drastic, more impractical, the better.

More impractical? The Digitech Synth Wah. Not necessarily a good thing, though, as it was so impractical I couldn't find a use for it! :D

I used to have the Moog LPF and it was crazy as hell, but it made my entire rig sound like absolute crap. I guess the previous owner messed with the guts and I ended up selling it for more than I paid for it to someone who wanted broken pedals.

The Digitech Synth Wah produces a few sounds I can deal with, but yeah, I guess that kind of impractical is not a good thing, haha.

If you got one that had been monkeyed around with.....I say try a stock MF101. The best.

Modular synth. No pedal comes even close if you want the most ridiculous env filter. Mainly since you could send the envelope to control anything you can imagine with frequency being just a start.


But for guitar pedals, I usually end up using the Empress Phaser in env follower mode. Which can be pretty wacky. The env can control amplitude (volume) and speed of LFOs (louder the LFO goes faster).

LPF? The rackmount Peavey Spectrum-it has both a full featured envelop generator and the LPF in one box, plus midi control!

If you want bandpass and high pass, then you've got to go with something else, a modular synth approach would be pretty cool. Or misuse something like the Studio Electronics SE1x with outboard triggering and midi control from the Moog CF201 pedal...

I have a Prometheus, cool pedal with lots of options.
It might not be as wild as you're looking for though, I'd think.

I'd like to try one of those Iron Ether myself, they sound wicked.

I also have a TWA Little Dipper. Closer to a Mutron, apparently.
They are discontinued, so look used. Not cheap when new either.
You get more of a vocal filter going on, much different from most I've tried.

Someone locally is selling a Prometheus (not the deluxe edition) for $120, I may pick it up; it may not be super crazy, but I can still dig it. I foresee an Iron Ether in my future definitely, though.

I don't have the Deluxe either.
It's still a very versitile pedal.
Much more so than the Little Dipper.

Good call on the Iron Ether, it's on my list too.
If you haven't checked out I Love Fuzz yet,
do so, they have their own section in there.

+1 on Prometheus it has a CRAP ton of sounds on it, and some really random and far out stuff on it. If you like twisting knobs, this one will keep you busy for a while. Full disclosure - I have on on offer in the Emporium (I think I'm the "local guy" you are talking about - I have it on craigslist too) for relatively short dough (or trade), if you are interested in giving it a spin. It's a really fun pedal, just way too much for my meager filtering needs.

PM me and we'll get 'er done!

Haha, it probably is you, dirk. I've spent more money on pedals and cables in the last few days than I care to admit, but I may be contacting you if I don't have any self-control.
