While primal audio hasn’t made anything new in a long while, I’m glad that their devices still go on sale. I was able to complete my collection of their filters.

I got the ladder filter a while ago and just never thought of getting the others as I had etch red and the f-16

The ms-20 emulation and the acid emulations are amazing!

I like how the korg modeled filter and the state variable filter sound super clean when seeeping

Thanks primal audio! And I soooooo hope to see more of their work, from my understanding they are a small company and have day jobs. But I’d love to see their take on additive synthesis or wavetable synthesis :)

Agree, great filters. I just wish, they would sort out the bug on PMS20, where the filter skips the first note on an instrument, when the LPF is closed down.
:?: The question is - Who cares :?:

And the Acid Diode Filter, which can completely stops passing audio if you mess with the On/Off/Bypass switch. Deleting the device & replacing it is the only solution I've found..

I've actually never had any issues with the filters. But they're the best ones in Reason to me IMO. Never had to think about looking for anything else. I use to be so disappointed by the MS-20 though. I was like what kind of filter is this. But ignorance kills man.

Now if I can just find a use for the Acid one. . .

What gets me is the sound of FM4, the style of FM just sounds great. And having the envelopes per operator make it easy to make very complex sounds. Especially since the changing of amplitude changes how the Fm timber is shaped

I can’t speak about the bugs on the filters.
Slapping a pulsar or shape LFO works on all 3 at all the useable rates for dubstep. Plus I just got the filters :D

I still hope to see more from primal audio

I have all their products. I was really hoping to see more from them. I remember they had a bit of a misunderstanding with their beta testers back in the day.

If these 3 filters were the only devices Primal Audio ever made, that would still be a legendary contribution to the RE market.

I find the trick with the Acid filter is to control it using a proper generated envelope CV from something else, such as the synth supplying the saw-wave. ;)
Basically its envelope follower is a bit useless.
And then follow it with lots of distortion, obviously.

Here's a patch I made: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7507211

I don't have VK-2 so I can't check your patch, but it seems like you may have found a solution to actually making acid bass sounds with it. I never really got any satisfying use out of it. I could make Antidote sound more Acid-like with it's diode filter setting.

I should just get ABL3. Or the TR-03. -_____-;

Yeah, obviously if you really love acid, don't fuck about and just buy ABL3.
You can substitute the VK-2 for any synth that has a CV out for its envelopes. Next time I get a chance I'll do a version with a Thor or a Subtractor.

+1

The Ladder filter was my first RE purchase. That says a lot.
