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 enlarge above image? click the image..!! 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.. HEAR SHARMANISM!
you can connct averything to the sherman, there are even 3 midi thru! (makes sense) all is CC controllabe via midi but you also got the envelope out and trigger in. FM and AM in! you can control the second AR envelope, too by external enlarge above image Sherman Filterbank 2? click the image..!!
see the harmonics knob? here you can set the second filter to be a static harmonics „generator“ for you! this make a lot of sense for drumloops and stuff.. ADSR env and an LFO that max range is audio speed! the lfo has some triangular waves
