Xerograph Deluxe question - plain English?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by dlenaghan, Aug 12, 2012.

  1. So I got an IE Xerograph deluxe recently hoping it'd do what the basic model does with the option of engaging the envelope sweeps.. I've been through the manual and checked out the demos - is there a way to set it to simply act as an LPF? I haven't put an expression pedal into it yet and it seems that might help control the sweep, but I'm wondering if I should've just gotten the basic model. The envelope funk was just a bonus I'd probably not use often, so if its' central to the use of the Deluxe, I might have one up for trades soon...:rollno:

    Have you tried setting the Sens knob to "zero"?

    Exactly. And with the sweep switch set to up. This will set the Xero as a static LPF. Dial back the resonance too.

    Obviously to sweep the filter you'd then want an expression pedal.
  4. Awesome, awesome. Ok, thanks guys. I'm stoked about the possibility of using as an envelope filter, but I was a bit freaked when I couldn't get it to just do the filter thing.
