Power input:

This input will accept an IEC standard

power cable. The internal power supply can be used in
any region. The fuse drawer can be rotated to
accomodate the different power ratings around the
world. Check the chart printed near the power entry for
fuse ratings.


Power Switch:

Turns the FilterFactory on and off.

When turning on your equipment be sure to turn your
power amplifiers on last. This will ensure that the noise
common to mixers and signal processors does not cause
damage to your speaker system. When powering down,
be sure to turn your power amplifiers off first.


CV left and right:

If you’ve got an old CV / Gate

keyboard rig, FilterFactory will work in your current
setup. You can control the Filter’s frequency with a CV
signal. (1 volt per octave).



Use a standard momentary footswitch

to turn Bypass on and off. FilterFactory can accept
normally open or normally closed footswitches. The
footswitch must be inserted before power is turned on
so that FilterFactory can recognize its type.


MIDI In/Out/Thru:

Connect MIDI devices here. See

the MIDI Applications section for more detail.


Channel Select:

This selects the MIDI send and

receive channel.



RCA -stereo - The RCA output level is nominally +4 dBu
1/4”-stereo TRS- This output produces a balanced +4 dBu




Phono/Line Switch - this swiches the RCA inputs to

accept phono or line level.

RCA. -stereo - When the Phono/Line switch is in the

Line position, this input is optimized for a +4dBu input
signal. When the Phono/Line switch is set to Phono, the
RIAA phono pre-amp will accept a range of cartridge
output levels.

1/4” -stereo TRS Balanced - This input is optimized

for +4 dBu input signal. When using the 1/4” inputs, be
sure to use the 1/4” outputs as well. This will ensure no
noticeable signal loss.

Note: Connecting both RCA and 1/4 inch jacks to the
input causes the level of the 1/4” input to drop. Make
sure that when you are using the 1/4” inputs that
nothing is connected to the RCA inputs.
