Does anybody know this unit ?
It looks very interesting. 3 filters, LFO, enveloppe follower.
Damn man... that looks SEXY!
My thoughts exactly. I was maintaining my mixer GAS on the Allen & Heath site and I stumbled on this. Now I have even more GAS.
Do you have any idea how much it is???
700 list, 550 retail.
They're not known to be a cheap brand.
Now there are so many wicked tones to get out of pass filters, if you combine that with the rest of the unit it's almost a multieffect.
I've owned a couple Allen & Heath mixers and they are my favorites.
I'd really be interested in checking this out.
So let's see what we have.
- MIDI controllable filter switching and frequency. Wah anyone ? Phaser too.
- Tube overdrive ("As well as the VCA filter the VF-1 also has a valve (tube) input stage with drive control, allowing the signal level through the valve to be progressively increased in order to create strong second harmonics, or taken all the way into clipping. This is a great tool for adding warmth to a mix or for fattening up thin, reedy bass sounds. Automatic gain reduction circuitry maintains a near constant output level as the overdrive control is increased")
- Jack (+0 dB) and XLR (+4 dB) outputs. You can drive a power amp or go straight to the board.
- LFO VCF and VCA filters.
- Envelope follower.
It sounds like a winner to me.
I for one would love to hear feedback on this myself...maybe you could pick one up and let us know!
