dsm01: curtis filter
price : $179.00
big sound comes in small packages
dave smith's first-ever offering for modular synthesizer users is a big one—the dsm01 curtis filter, the very heart and soul of the dave smith sound. featured in everything from dave's vintage sequential synths
to his recent cutting-edge instruments such as the prophet 12, the curtis tone is brash, saturated, and powerful.
plug it and play it
the dsm01 is a compact, 8 hp eurorack-format module. plug it into your modular system and that classic curtis sonic signature is instrantly within a patch chord's reach. the filter is a resonant low-pass design
that can be switched between -12 db and -24 db operation and driven into self-oscillation in -24 db mode. a boost switch lets you overdrive the input stage for more aggressive coloration.
in addition to its curtis filter, the dsm01 provides its own responsive, low-noise vca with led cv indicator. there are two separate outputs—one pre-amplifier and the other post-amplifier. this not only gives
you added signal routing flexibility, but also frees your system's existing vcas for other tasks.
give your modular system the edge
if you're a typical modular user, you're always on the lookout for new and interesting components to enhance your system. the dsm01 is an easy and affordable way to give your system a new sonic edge—with the
filter that's brought some of the world's most in-demand synths their classic tone and vibe.
