ebbe und flut - fully analogue integrated modular sound-design-machine/channel-strip


- two different 4-pole super-sonic multimode VOLTAGE CONTROLLED FILTERS (VCF's) with 12 characteristics each (lowpass, highpass, bandpass, notch, allpass) and with an extreme tonal range

- completed by an easy controllable superb COMPRESSOR,
a sweet sounding 2-way spectral DISTORTION unit and a final VCA

- all surrounded by a lot of very wide range voltage controlled MODULATORS (high speed VC-LFO, 2x high range VC-AHR (Attack-Hold-Release) - ENVELOPES, super fast RMS-VOLTAGE-FOLLOWER (logarithmic/linear scale), a S&H and a NOISEGATE.

- A N D the very fast high precision AUDIO-TRIGGER is able to derive absolute reliable triggers for gating, synchronizing and controlling other modules like ENV's, LFO, S&H or external stuff - capable to produce perfect in-time rhythmic and synchronous modulations according to your music data input - very sensitive and independend on the input level.


The sound is absolute fantastic, warm and enormous powerful.
ebbe und flut is capable to turn every sound source by quantum leaps into new dimensions.

With analogue instruments, nature is talking to us!
