Low Pass Gate Module for Softube Modular Released
Based on the Buchla LPG (Low Pass Gate) concept with some well thought through additions — Softube have unleashed yet another module for spatially challenged, synth obsessives to lose their minds over. The original LPG has been heralded for its ability to add a ‘lifelike and organic response and texture’ to modular synth patches. Doepfer added a resonance filter to the original which softube have faithfully reproduced for this software version. The hardware LPG modules are based on vactrols — just like opto-compressors. The response time of these can vary wildly, which is all part of the LPG charm. Softube’s plug-in version of Doepfer’s design adds a Vact. switch, which was not part of the original hardware. This lets users switch between fast, medium, or slow (F/M/S) response times to cover the variation between individual analog units.
