The 4ms Pedals - Spectral Multiband Resonator is a digital set of filters that can resonate too, so the next layer behind it is a set of customisable and voltage-controlled scales. This is a super clean filter that adds brilliance to any input signal from drums to synths and even speech!


The Spectral Multiband Resonator from 4ms Company is an innovative resonant filter which can process audio like a classic filter bank, ring like a marimba when plucked/struck, vocode, re-mix tracks, harmonize, output spectral data, quantize audio to scales, and much more...

A gorgeous ring of colored lights displays the frequency of each filter, as well as the levels and current scale selection(s).

At a glance, the SMR works like a normal six-band graphic EQ: six frequency band-pass filters are mixed together using sliders. Resonance/Q is variable, which changes the "ringy-ness" or width of the bands.

But here's where comparison stops. The frequency of each channel is treated like a note in a scale, and the six bands form a chord. Spin the Rotate knob and the "notes" circle around the scale, rotating back to the bottom once they've reached the top. Adjust Spread and the distance between each note changes. Triggers for up/down motion, CV inputs for sequencing, and scale selection allow for flexible control with external modules. Morph, which automatically cross-fades between frequencies, together with variable Slew allows rhythmic clocks drive the SMR as a variable-speed evolving resonant filter.

At maximum Resonance/Q, the SMR can be struck like a gong or marimba. The frequency of each channel is quantized to a scale: beautiful chords, ethereal tones and eerie ambiance flows easily. With lower resonance, the SMR can pull out particular frequency bands, and sweep these across the spectrum.

Features:

Six filter channels, selected from twenty active filters displayed on the light ring
Variable "Q" (Resonance) ranges from classic band-pass to ultra-resonant ringing
Stereo ins and outs stagger the bands into evens/odds for an immersive stereo field
Spectral content outputs for each channel (Env Out) allow for vocoding (spectral transfer)
Three selectable envelope speeds help with locking to a beat
Sliders and CV jacks control each filter's level
Variable Slew can be applied to CV level jacks to prevent clicking from clocks or triggers
Ring of 20 full-color lights displays the filter frequencies
Filter frequencies move about the scale using Rotation and Spread
Rotation "spins" the frequencies around the scale
Spread controls the gap between neighboring bands
Morph creates a variable speed cross-fade when the filter frequencies change
Lock buttons prevent each channel from changing in frequency or resonance
Freq Nudge fine-tunes a channel to hone in on an exact frequency
Each bank has 11 scales of 20 frequencies/notes each
Pre-programmed banks such as Western, Indian, Micro-tonal, etc...
Rotation/Spread moves about an entire bank, or can be limited to a single scale
White noise is normalized to the inputs, so the SMR can be used without an external signal
A plethora or CV and trigger input jacks
26HP Eurorack module
