Multi mode filter with switchable characteristics: lowpass, bandpass and highpass, based on the filter curcuitry of the Steiner Parker Synthasystem.
It has few controls, but less is more and the sound of this Eurorack classic still is one of our favourites.
The filter circuit corresponds very closely to the filter of the SteinerParker Synthasystem from 1974 and was developed together with Mr. Nyle Steiner.
Those who have played and heard the FrequenSteiner will understand that because the sound and especially the juicy resonance sounds wet and has an unbelievable character.
Yes, the circuitry of the FrequenSteiner is sensitive and specialized in letting oscillations from other modules bleed through when they are on the same busboard. The resonance control produces a hiss (electric reasons, not mechanical). If you are willing to overlook the quirks of this diva you will be rewarded with a really lovely filter. Years after its introduction still one the best filters on the Eurorack market.
Mike Brown studied at electronic music at Cal State University San Bernardino and always wanted to have a modular system he couldn't afford. In 1994 he discovered the book "Build your own synthesizer" by Thomas Henry at a local library. Years later, fed up of his corporate day job, he started Livewire and produced iconic modules such as the Dual Cyclotron, FrequenSteiner, Chaos Computer or the AFG oscillator. Mike Brown passed away in 2012. His long time friend Steve Rightnor is currently keeping his legacy alive, reissuing the iconic AFG.
