Dave Smith Instruments DSM03 Feedback Module
At the heart of the Dave Smith Instruments DSM03 Feedback Module is a tuned feedback line for sound mangling, a resonant low pass filter for tone shaping and a triggerable noise source for Karplus-Strong-type plucked string synthesis. Tuned feedback has been a part of the Dave Smith tonal palette since the groundbreaking Evolver and is also a key sound-shaping component of the Pro 2 and Prophet 12 synths.
Plug it in and tweak it
DSM03 is a 10hp standard eurorack format device with interconnections made using 3.5mm phone jacks. A set of inputs allow individual voltage control of feedback amount, tuning, low pass filter frequency and filter resonance. The module provides one audio input and one audio output as well as an audio trigger input for the noise source.
The 4-pole resonant lowpass filter is a digital design based partially on classic analog filters of the past. It features over-sampling and numerous refinements to the signal path, which is 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution for outstanding audio fidelity. It's a great-sounding design that works well both in the feedback context and as a standalone tone-shaping tool.
Creative possibilities abound
