So you're in the market for a synthesizer that uses a VCF? Well you're definitely in the right place. For those who aren't in the know, a VCF (voltage-controlled filter) is a frequency-dependent amplifier that is commonly found in analog music synths and used often in electronic music styles. VCFs have a distinctive retro sound and many of today's top synth brands offer analog synth models with the technology, including Moog and Roland. In this section alone, you'll find an excellent range of best sellers that would delight any musician who wants to incorporate a VCF into their musical repertoire.

For those of you who are looking for an affordable module to enhance your system and give it a unique sonic edge, check out the Dave Smith Instruments DSM01 Curtis Filter Module. As its name suggests, this device is named after the late filter designer/icon, Doug Curtis. It offers a switchable 2- or 4-pole low-pass filter, its own low-noise VCA with LED CV indicator and much more. Responsive, versatile and easy to use, the DSM01 is perfect for any modular user who wants to broaden the possibilities of their performance.

Of course, we couldn't touch on voltage-controlled filters without mentioning at least something from Moog. For a top-rated synth that is sure to fatten up your sound, feast your eyes on the Sub Phatty 25-Key Analog Synthesizer. Boasting 31 knobs, 25 keys, 13 switches and Multidrive circuit technology for gritty distortion, this synth is an engaging powerhouse that will have you exploring every nook and cranny of your musical imagination. From face-melting noise generators to mind-bending oscillators, the Sub Phatty is one lean, mean, dynamic machine.

And this selection features many other popular synths, modules and filters. VCFs are important tools on analog synths - but rest assured, you don't need to look any further than this catalog for a high-quality unit that lasts through countless years of sound-modifying bliss. So what's the hold up? Dive into your choices and take a pick!
