The Iron Ether Xerograph Low Pass Filter & more!

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Kwesi, Apr 16, 2010.

  1. As some of you may know our very own Conical Johnson is creating his own lowpass filter. For too long now the Moog MF101 has been pretty much anyone's only option for a high quality low pass filter. And while many love the sound there are also many who want other options in terms of price. I haven't tried the Moog myself but some healthy competition is long overdue for it and hopefully, this pretty little pedal will provide just that! Ladies and gents... the Iron Ether Xerograph:


    Purty ain't it? I was told the CV in will be available later as well! The website with clips should be up very soon and I'm sure Conical will chime in with the info when it is. The Xerograph will also be getting a big brother in a few weeks that will take things over the top! Here's a bit of info:

    The price is projected to be $175USD.

    Xerograph clips:
    I know I can't wait! I asked Conical and he said it's cool so I'm making another thread to so we can pitch him name suggestions for this pedal you can post your submission here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?p=8996621#post8996621

    I definitely excited for this stuff and I figure everyone should at least hear about it so here it is :D!
  2. Looks awesome! I would happliy drop my Moog filter if I can get one of these with CV-in - provided it does the same thick low pass sweep without envelope.

    Just to be clear, all of these come standard with an expression pedal jack for frequency, so you can use a regular expression pedal to control the sweep. The CV compatible option is for interfacing with an MP201 or modular synth gear.

    But if you want to sweep the filter with an expression pedal, that's a standard feature.

  5. I've been saving up for a mf-101 but this looks like a good option. Demo??? :D :hyper: :)
  6. Very cool. I'll wait to hear some feedback from other before pulling the trigger but I'd be keen to get rid on my Moog for something smaller. Is there any way to have the input so that both CV and regular expression would work?

    That Xerograph looks great.

    I'm on my second LPF from Conical (the first one was in a wah type enclosure), and I must say he's outdone himself with this one. It's smooth, noiseless, and the footprint is perfect. It's really intuitive as well.

    Here's a pic of my current board with the LPF in the upper left corner. I had Conical make me a Brassmaster clone with a starve knob, gate knob, and exp in as well, and you can see it on the lower left next to the orange pedal. It's kicked a Woolly Mammoth, Prunes and Custard, and Bassweet off my board over the past 6 months. Seriously.

    This guy is good!

    If it truly matches/beats the Moog LPF and I can get UK delivery included for the $175 then I will probably cry hot, salty tears of joy (not necessarily from my eyes).
  14. Freakin' cool.

    If the nameless big brother has all the features of the fooger LP + "effecs loop", while smaller in footprint, I'm likely to buy it.

    The Xerograph would be right up my alley if it wasn't missing volume control and sensitivity/envelope amount control
  18. You can get both as custom options and it'll still be less than the Moog :).

    You're probably asking a bit much to get free UK shipping.
