Introducing the Dual Filter

By | Main page blog

I am happy to finally release the Dual Filter module for Eurorack.

The SoundForce Dual Filter is a 2-stage cascaded OTA design based on the late MS-20. The design has been fine-tuned with extended resonance control as well as a resonance CV input. Each filter can be either a 12dB/oct low-pass or 6dB/oct high-pass. To keep the module HPs on the low side, the filter mode setting is located on the back of the module. The module was designed to be a very affordable full-featured modern filter.

Highly efficient design:
This design attracted me very particularly due to its beautiful simplicity. With only 2 poles, it uses a total of 3 OTA ICs and 4 OP-AMP ICs for both filters even with the added resonance voltage control. Early on, efficiency and part counts were a focus during testing and development. In combination with automated manufacturing and a very short supply chain, the module has a very high quality standard at a very affordable price. The module uses only A-brand ICs and passive and no costs were cut during purchasing.

Price and availability:
It’s available right now to order at 149 euros (123 euros outside of Europe) on the SoundForce webshop, Signal Sounds and Mattech Modular.

I am super happy with Ben aka Divkid demo video of my DCO module. It really showcases the beautiful tones that the module can create. On top of that you get super creative patch ideas I would have personally never thought about. Check it out:

Control panels not working in latest Google Chrome version – FIXED

By | Main page blog

EDIT:
This problem was fixed thanks to Pier, a customer with a lot of experience in front end development. Thanks a lot!

Hi there,

A customer let me know that the control panels stopped working with the latest Google Chrome version (on Mac Version 77.0.3865.90). A fix will come asap, in the meanwhile try to install the previous version (74.0.3729.169): For Mac and for windows.

And disable the automatic updates: On Mac and on Windows (Method 1).

Google has broken the MIDI API support on the new version, let’s hope the next version will fix that problem.

Nicolas.

About

Hello stranger and welcome to my website. My name is Nicolas and SoundForce is my company. It started in 2014 with a simple idea: wouldn’t it be cool to control software synthesizers with dedicated controllers? For the first time, I combined my Electrical Engineering background with my love for computer music. My first product was the SFC-60, a controller for the TAL U-NO-LX Juno-60 plugin. Back then, everything was made by me and by hand. Since then, I have developed 4 different models and improved design and manufacturing drastically.

In April 2016, I ordered my first Eurorack DIY kit from Thonk.co.uk. I was hooked instantly and started to build my own case, my own utility modules, few Mutable modules and started (too) many projects. At the time, I was working in local FabLab and could easily mill PCBs, laser front panels and CNC some Eurorack cases. This led to a couple of DIY products in 2017, such as Clocky and the 808 Kick and Snare. In 2018, I worked on the first Eurorack assembled module, the DCO, a modern homage to the Juno-60/106 oscillator section. For Superbooth 2019, the DCO is announced as well as some other upcoming modules.

Prior to starting SoundForce, I worked as an Industrial Programming Engineer as well as in the music business as an engineer/producer/composer. With SoundForce I finally merged my both backgrounds.
