Had this unit 4 years ago for about 6 months.

It is quite a powerful unit, but it always feels to me like a fancy distortion box than just a filter.

It always makes a very certain type of groove, almost an over the top old school tresor techno sound, very crunchy, but almost always a little TOO crunchy.

Maybe there are more subtle applications, but for the same money, get two boxes, such as a moog box and one of those jomox resonator thingies.

Hot damn. This box is the definition of SLAMMIN'. Endless applications. I've had the thing for only a few days now and I'm having trouble deciding just how to integrate it...so many possibilities! So far I've put it in my live setup as a mixer send. When I patch my ESX-1 through it I can get ANY and EVERY hard techno/house groove known to man - from Beltram to Mills to Surgeon and back again...the simpler the sound you put in, I find, the better the result. No joke, I was at least an hour having a blast with no more than a dead simple 1-2-3-4 kickdrum pattern. It's ridiculousness made real. What a great way to get going with modular!

This is a fun and mean filter but to be honest its a bit over rated. Not as fat as I thought it would be when I bought it (got the FB2!). The new Jomox "M Resonator" sounds like it and is $300 cheaper! The sounds demo's on the Sherman site were recorded with effects of reverb and 2 filterbanks- Herman even admited it! Its a good filter but not at THAT price. Hold on to your money and try to buy an MS-20 if you can and run stuff through that! Ive never bashed any piece of gear in my life and Im not bashing this product; Im just telling it like it is!

This machine is the best sounding filter ever...brings life to all your boring pads loops etc...great fun to use. Once I played it I was hooked because the filters just sound so amazing, real analog, real beast!!!
