Lida Machine Resonant Filter


Product Description

The new Lida Machine from YellowCake is an analog Resonant Filter, also known as a VCF (Voltage Control Filter) with two independently adjustable LFO’s, the second of which can be switched on/off to further modulate the signal.  You can use an expression pedal to control the 'Freq.' (Frequency) knob and it has a separate CV-IN so you can add other Voltage Controlled synth modules.


Despite the number of knobs, the control layout was easy to understand and we were dialing in cool sounds within minutes: from a warbling viscous chorus to choppy Uni-vibe, from a funky auto-wah to a trippy phaser-tinged tremolo. Turning on the second LFO added a fascinating level of complexity to the modulation, which only improved when we fed it an overdriven signal.  That’s when all manner of spacey, psychedelic, mind-altering sounds came to light!  Super fun!  


Despite the waiting-list, we were able to nab two for the shop.  If you’re yearning to expand your sound palette, stop in soon before they sell!
