Filter Box Overview
do you speak ’sherman?
Sherman Filterbank 2
not german, but from belgium! ;)
|after the very charismatic filterbank 1..|
basically the Sherman Filterbank 2 is a synthesizer without oscillators!
maybe a nice DIY project could make this machine a real charsimatic synthesizer?
maybe add a nice small mfb synth to drive it.. ;)
btw: I have never seen such a good manual with so many examples and really easy!
and: hmm, cute! really.. as cute as the „VCA-man“ in the ms20 manual

FM and AM! „distortion“ by overdriving the input!
filter sounds quite rough „british“ ms20’ish!.. but it never sounds „bad“. but it CAN SOUND EVIL! ;)
you have 2 independet filters both sweepable from LPF to BPF to HPF! also there is a nice knob for adjusting the filters called anti mix correction.
here you can have non symmetric bpfs ,lpfs and hpfs.. so this makes another „kind“ of filter characteristics.. (eg: a hpf that still lets some bass freq. pass through)..
I did a nice drumloop and shermanized it, you hear FM at audio speed (to the end) and some knob turns..
I tested it with a fairly „non phat“-drumloop.. if you set it right, you can beef it up a lot!!!
