WMD shows for Superbooth 20 Home Edtion SCLPL a new stereo filter /5-band digital EQ module for Eurorack that is described as the mix surgeon’s best friend
There is one dominant theme on SB20 HE: stereo filters. After Shakmat, Bastl Instruments… WMD today introduced a new stereo filter, but a digital one. SCLPL (pronounced SCALPEL) is a new Eurorack module that can be used as a stereo 5-band digital EQ and also as a morphing filter.
It works in mono/dual mono/stereo and can be used in many ways: cutting out problem frequencies on voices, improving the stereo field, or adding stereo filter effects to your sounds. As already said, the SCLP can also be used as an EQ 5-band EQ that fits nicely to the WMD Performance Mixer Setup thanks to the dual-mono & stereo control schemes. Nice is here that you can chain 4 SCLPL together for 8 channels of EQ madness in 16 HP even one more to the master bus for the ultimate mixing setup in 20 HP.
The module offers a quite simple user interface that includes 9 user-programmable presets slots that can then be “morphed” between seamlessly with CV or the level knob in the morph mode. That sounds like a very interesting feature, mostly because you can animate it. Each frequency band is set independently with the Level, Q, and Frequency knobs, and a helpful LED display aids in knowing exactly what’s going on at all times. Frequency bands include a Low Shelf, 3 Mid-Range Peaking Bands, and a High Shelf.
