Oh good question!

It's based on a steiner parker filter. Inspired by my experience with the Minibrute. I liked it because the lows don't disappear when you add resonance, like the Moog ladder filters. Of course, things have to change when you make them into a pedal, so I'm sure it's not a "perfect Steiner Parker" but that's where we started.

BONUS: There's a trimpot inside there that controls the input volume (or GAIN) which I haven't even really fucked with. It's a "just-in-case" control.


This is awesome. Love the microbrute filter!!

(btw sent you a PM regarding BILF!)

Yeah this pedal has been covering all my wub wub needs lately. The character of the filter does not dissapoint.

Been feeding it an envelope from my ARF, which works nicely, and visa versa sending the happiness lfo to the ARF at times. Good times.

Also had the best ever reverb packaging experience with this, after the seller felt bad about a slight shipping delay.

Feeding some over the top fuzz in that happy blue box is just amazing. It also adds a super nice percussive element when the shape is all saw-tooth that is just drool worthy.

I need to start toying with the CV...

Yeah using the A/D from the ARF w the Hap's filter is amazing. Also that packaging is beautiful!

I assume since you didn't break anything you handled that intense self oscillation volume with professional grace and ease.
You are clearly a gracious and professional player.

Been playing with my happiness all night (leaving that one wide open), quick question: do I need an iso power supply with it (I should get one anyway, so yeah)?
Or is the watery clicky/pulsing noise just left over frequency and I suck at turning knobs and dials on pedals (probably this, so yeah)?

The clock noise from the scramble circuit never quite dials out in my experience. It's kinda noisy. Isolated power will maybe reduce it, but it won't fix it.

It needs 110 mA, so if you are powering it with a standard 100 it won't cut it. No love, no wub

Ah ok, thanks man.
I had it dialled in at a couple of points to where it wasnt an issue, but it was within the early ranges of the depth knob, which is a pity because cranking that is awesome.

Its got enough juice I wasn't sure if iso was the issue is all.
I do love the wub.

Here's a pic of how mine turned out

Expect a PM from me about this in coming months.
Im being realistic with my time line. I got a thing or two on the burner to take care of first.
But, I want to unlock the possibilities
