    Hello guys,
    I've just bought this item, mainly because it's one of the few filter with a LEVEL control.
    I have a question: is it possible to vary the filter opening with the intensity of the touch (like an envelope filter)?
    It seems to bee too "closed" when I reach lower ranges...

    I don't believe so

    No you can't. That's the only thing I find annoying with this pedal, No sensitivity control. Everything else is great.

    Ashdown has an envelope hitting the street shortly that has a level control. Looking at the layout it seems like a Maxon AF-8 or Mutron type envelope voiced for bass along with the ability to mix what have been traditionally different discrete settings. Anyone get one of these yet?

    Well... I figured out that Auto Qs are not for me... I'm going to bring it back to the dealer (who, luckily, loves me).
    My research in filters goes on... will I find one that satisfies me one day?
    I just want a funky filter reactive to my touch... and with a LEVEL control... is there anyone out there?
