Saber by Delta Sound Labs is a reimagined variation of the pioneering 1970’s era SEM filter by Tom Oberheim. This is a truly classic audio filter reworked as a compact and 100% skiff-friendly 8HP module.
The original SEM (Synthesizer Expander Module) was one of the world’s first all-in-one synthesizers and it’s unique 12dB/Octave multi-mode filter, imparted unique character to anything it touched. Saber by Delta Sound Labs remains true to this design but features modern touches such as buffered low-pass, high-pass and band-pass outputs, each of which can be used at the same time. All in all, this makes for a really flexible, great sounding addition to any Eurorack system.
Specs: Width: 8HP, Depth: 20mm.
Calibrating Your SEM Filter Module:
- Turn the Frequency Cut-Off potentiometer to zero and open the Q pot all the way out.
- Adjust the Cut trim (left-most) pot on the rear to the lowest, audible point or below.
- The Scale trim (right-most) pot is much more subtle to adjust by ear. It is recommended that you dial it out completely. It’s responsible for voltage per octave tracking.
