AI Synthesis has released the AI017 Low Pass Gate in both a built and guaranteed version, as well as in kit and PCB/Panel format. They tell us that the AI017 Low Pass Gate Eurorack Module can be used as a Voltage Controlled Filter, Voltage controlled Amplifier, or both. The AI017 is an updated variation of the classic Buchla 200 Series Low Pass Gate, updated with a tunable resonance circuit, and a Depth control. Vactrols are used for control voltage, allowing for classic "ringing" and "bongo" effects.
A spokesperson told us, "The Depth control compensates the vactrols inability to drop lower than ~100 ohms, which can allow audio bleed on traditional Low Pass Gates. The effect can be switched on or off, as depth will attenuate the classic ringing and bongo effect. This gives the user an easy way to go from a vintage Low Pass Gate to a modern Low Pass Gate with a flick of the switch. A rear trimmer allows for the tuning of the resonance."
In addition to releasing a new Low Pass Gate Module, AI Synthesis is also releasing Black versions of their modules. They say that the Black versions of the modules have Black and Gold panels, Black knobs, and Black switch caps for a striking look,
Following the tradition of the other eurorack modules, the AI001 Multiple,AI002 Mixer, and AI003 Looping ADSR, the module has a full video how-to build guide. PCBS are professionally manufactured, and all panels are aluminum and designed by Grayscale.
