the lpg is a west coast synthesis staple! our dual low pass gate creates organic percussion timbres, paving the way for sonic exploration with a buchla/subotnick vibe.
the lpg has two identical low pass gates in one module. its unique non-linear qualities emulate percussion timbres like congas, bongos, plucks, etc. the lpg is vactrol based, which creates natural-sounding
decays. when the cv input is pinged by short/fast envelopes, it results in more organic sounds like bongos. the slide pot functions in two ways: when the the cv input is not patched, it attenuates/mixes the
audio signal. when the cv jack is patched, it attenuates the output level and changes the timbre of the audio signal.
each lpg channel can be used as a vca. vca mode bypasses the low pass filter and resonance and doesn't color the sound of your input audio. the vactrol gives the vca a living, breathing, non-linear
we tested a number of vactrols for this module, and we liked the pre-tested nsl-7053 best of all. the nsl-7053 has a slower response and a more exponential response curve. the vtl5c4 has a slightly faster
response and a more linear response curve. but the lpg will work with a number of different types/brands, including dual vactrols. in fact, each channel can be built with a different set of vactrols.
