The ultimate plug and play filter pedal. Behold THE PROTEUS! The secret is out! Building on the success of Prometheus, Proteus embraces a very different philosophy. In short, Proteus is what many people wished Prometheus had been- simpler and much easier to use on the fly. The envelope filter mode is much more "funk" than "shoegaze." The step filtering is pure random sample hold. No ultra-fine tuning required. Just tap in a beat, and Proteus does all the thinking for you.
Where Prometheus is a mad science project run amok, Proteus is exactly the opposite. Controls are simple, obvious, and do exactly what you expect,every time.
The low-pass filter does not cut out frequencies below the cutoff point, so the low end always stays intact. It can be bright at some settings, but never shrill.
Proteus is powered externally only with a standard 9V negative center 2.1mm barrel adapter. Not included
Bypass Switch: Turns the effect off or on. Tap/Mode Switch: Tapping the switch in time starts the sample/hold filter. Holding the switch down for one second switches back to envelope filter mode. Frequency: Filter resting point. Depth: Filter modulation range for both envelope follower and sample hold mode. 1-2-4: Step multiplier. One, two or four steps per beat (sample hold mode only).
