M.F.B. Filterbox
LPF 8 squenable not.

The characteristics of particulires Filter Box are
Analog -Filtering, 24dB
-Synchro MIDI
-Squenage 8 of 8 no cutoff values ​​of independent entrance
-Filtering Stro

Style Case MFB, ie plastic and fiber faade, very artisanal or garagesque. Moderately hardwearing connections. Although having had no worries Until now, I doubt the longevity of the catch.


I bought pricipalement for its function squenage. I connect my behind Synth 2. The mine does not cause so much breath, but that of a friend gnre significantly. Cel apparently seems to be a variable rsultante MFB ...

No memorization of parameters, each knobs must be place at time t. Simplicity efficiency no node to the brain. However, it can memorize the type of squenage (manual, taped, ext MIDI RESOLUTION with 4, 8 or 16 steps, note, etc ...)

The knobs although cheap appearance are quite soft, except when "scrape" on the facade ... oops thinking adjust (classical in MFB, always)


Filtering at the same seems very wrong to me it, not fantastically warm, but good quality. I think it is wanted, cel order not dnaturer the original sound of the synth (dj filtered in general), because the advantage of Filter Box is Besides my eyes. With rglages contour, attack and decay, there's some way to get Nevertheless many nice sonorits.
It is when it is launched squenage that all comes to life. And the Filter Box comes into its own, very interesting when the Threshold fiddles and glide.

The rsonance on the other hand do not like it, personal perspective. It gnre a whistle that quickly becomes aggressive, difficult dosing. I prefer the softer rso, so not a fan myself. Anyway, know that there is way to do whistling very stridante fawn, may serve and some love.


I use it for 1 month (when I had bought 2 years ago!).

The peculiarity is that I prefer squenage function that can revive a comatose pattern, I love. What I like least is manufacturing quality Gnrale just correct.

He does and is, my first stand-alone filter.

Very proper qualitprix report. This is not the weapon of the century, but it is very interesting for occasional use.

With the experience, I think I would choose a squenc filter but I do not know if I would take the Filter Box. I chose the era for its price today, I think I would look for something a cut above both dsormais on, thanks to the Filter box, I need a filter type in my set. For now the Filter Box enough.

M.F.B. Filterbox
I broke down and ben ... And finally me my first module all analog ... At the moment I plug the stereo MicroKorg and I must say I am amazed ...

Designed with a filter sequencer ... A cutoff in steps (8 total), a button to manage the stereo space ... Yes, I said stereo!

In terms of connectivity it's all midi in jack +. For the power supply is a common transformer.

Otherwise the buttons are spaced enough and can act on a parameter without kicking off the next parameter.


The manual = two A4 sheets. Very easy to use, it's easy to see which parameter affects another. (Contour acting on the attack and sustain)

The use is very intuitive. Important note, the sequencer is a +. We are not obliged to engage (which I was afraid at first ...).

There are several modes for analog sequencer (trigger, noon, 1 / 4, etc. Self ...)+ a button that glide + attractive ...

So simple and sufficient for complex sequences!


This is a good filter. There's nothing to say. It is music. Can be very sweet to be very aggressive (by acting on the contour and emphasis)

+ What I like is that compared to other modules MFB (I had the synth2 one week) it is very noisy. So you can really get in the low frequency background noise residual.

So also good for recording. I put 7 because there will always be better.


So there. I can only put a 10.

I got it secondhand for a few - expensive than the new. And at this price, it's a bomb! The advantage is that it transforms the signal source, or in a very discreet, is so radical.

In my opinion, compared to other filters, versatility is a real +.

And that price, we offer an all analog sequencer. Seriously, we must be dreaming. MFB thank you anyway to be able to democratize this elitism analog! In addition it does not come from China!

If you can not afford for Vostok and other M5 and are looking to add a grain to your existing machines (even the Bontempi it will do) and ben you will not be disappointed ...

Update 2006
-------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------

I exchanged against an AKAI MFC42 filter used to me eventually that few of the sequencer.
A single point. I'm really not disappointed. After that, it's only stuff ...
