Product Description

The LxD, Low Strike Duo, is a dual-response, two channel, direct-coupled, Low Pass Gate, which utilizes vactrols in order to provide simultaneous control over the Amplitude and Frequency Spectrum of an INput Signal. It is, in essence, a VCFA (Voltage Controlled Filter Amplifier). Unlike the Optomix, the LxD offers two different filter responses. CH. 1 offers a 12db/ Octave response that is mildly-resonant, while CH. 2 offers a 6bd/ Octave that is non-resonant. The OUTput of CH. 1 is normalled to the INput of CH. 2. This normalization puts the two channels in series, which is similar to the VCF into VCA arrangement made popular by many monosynths of the 1970’s.

  • Classic VCF->VCA arrangement in small 4hp module
  • STRIKE INput allows use of Gate signal to trigger Low Pass Gate circuit, "plucking" or "striking" the vactrol
  • Low noise, low distortion, smooth, natural-sounding circuit
  • Direct coupled, process audio or control signals
  • Utilizes 2 vactrols
  • Pairs well with STO and MATHS

  1. A solid VCF/A 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 22nd 2016

    If you like the sound of Vactrol's and are on a budget this is the best choice. It is a combined VCF/A so it's a bit limited but it has all you need for the Vactrol sound at a great price.
