Adds deep, warm analog feel when big filter sweeps and extreme resonance are needed!

The Akai MFC42's Analaog Filter Module's 2 filters are true analog, giving that indefinable extra warmth that only analog circuitry can deliver. Ideal for live and studio work, the MFC42 will appeal to a wide variety of musicians from hip-hop and R&B -- where it will add a rich, deep, warm analog feel -- to techno and new age, where you can add big filter sweeps and extreme resonance.

The MFC42 features one stereo and one mono channel. Each can be controlled independently. The stereo channel features 2-pole and 4-pole selectable filters. The mono channel has 2-pole, 4-pole and 8-pole selectable filters. When you select the 8-pole filter on the mono channel, the stereo channel is turned off and bypassed. You can select between low-pass, high-pass, band pass and notch filter types independently on both the stereo and mono channels.

The MFC42 also includes a multi-waveform low frequency oscillator and an envelope generator. You can select the destination of the LFO (stereo channel or mono)and select the LFO to modulate cutoff and resonance, and you can use it to phase between left and right.

Tapping the tap tempo key controls the speed of the LFO. The LFO can also be synchonized to an external MIDI clock. A button triggers the envelope generator; which has independent controls for attack, decay, sustain, and release. Alternatively, the MFC can have its envelope triggered via incoming MIDI note-ons on a specified MIDI channel.

Effects include distortion with depth control, analog stereo phaser with speed and depth controls, and Master EQ with separate low and high controls. You can control almost all the knobs and all the keys with MIDI control change data and record the movement of each knob to an external sequencer. The stereo input accepts direct connection from a turntable for live performance

By Taylor Made Beats

from sioux city ,ia,

The quality is nice and midi sounds smooth and its fast. If you sample your chorseyou can punch it in, but you need the ear to do so.
