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!
Freq. - Adjusts frequency of the Voltage Controlled Filter.
Res - Adjust Resonance of VCF. Oscillation starts when knob is at 4 o’clock.
Rate - Controls rate of the LFO.
Depth - Controls intensity of the LFO
X - Sets the degree to which the expression pedal input influences the Frequency control of the VCF.
CV-IN - Input for adding in other modulation or synth like modules.
LFO 1 Switch - 2-way toggle that switches triangle LFO rate from Slow to Fast .
LFO 2 Switch - 3-way waveform toggle switch. Ramp, Triangle, and Sawtooth
Clean - Clean signal mix.
Level - Total output volume.
Power - 9 - 12v 2.1mm negative center adapter.
