The Forbidden Planet from Tiptop Audio is a Synthacon-inspired multimode filter built for exploring the outer realms of synthesis. It features unique unity-gain inputs for its High-Pass, Bandpass, and Low-Pass modes which produce interesting saturation when fed different signals. The filter truly blasts off at higher resonance settings, with aggressive, acidic tones aplenty without producing extraneous oscillation.
Thanks to its warmth, unique layout, and versatility, the Forbidden Planet is an excellent choice for cadets and captains alike. Great for everything from smooth highpass to bubbling resonances, the Forbidden Planet is simply an amazing filter.
