The Neutron Flux 8 Pole Variable Character Filter is a 12hp skiff friendly Eurorack filter module with a stereo analog core and digital control over it. The digital control allows the core to shaped almost endlessly, taking on the character of almost any classic filter, and gives the filter the ability to explore sounds that have never been heard before.

Two 4 pole filter cores: These can be run in stereo, mono divided to stereo or chained as a 8 pole mono filter for almost LPG-like steep slope.

Characters: The green factory character bank has five characters with vintage spirit:

Fat – Our take on a ladderish filter character, great for slightly overdriven bass sounds.
Crisp – A bright state variable filter. Has a notch setting in the center of the mode pot.
Liquid – Spacey resonance. Filter pings dripping with dew.
Sour – The squelchy acid thing. Chained pole settings have a sour filter first and a flat distortion after.
Mean – This is all about bad behavior with distortion. Highly unstable.
The Yellow factory bank contains some more specialized characters. See Character Guide below.

Coming later in a firmware update the yellow and red bank characters can be replaced via audio update.

Overdrive: Long press on the pole switch enables the boost circuit. It is a +20dB before the filter core. Most of the audible distortion happens on the first filter stages which go from clean via warm saturation to hard distortion. In all cases the drive pot acts as a volume pot, while the overdrive function switches two different ranges.

The topology of the Neutron Flux allows toggling the boost separately for each core. For example some special characters could have the boost operating between the cores when they are chained in the 6 or 8 pole modes. See the Sour character for a use case like this.

Stereo: This control spreads the cutoff between L and R channels and induces VCO-like drift. This way a mono signal can be split into wide stereo. The stereo effect isn’t like a micro delay or chorus but something else. It’s more like an animated binaural mismatched eq-like effect. A sole static cutoff spread between left and right is a bit troublesome because the stereo image would be crooked. This is why we added some VCO-like drift in the stereo function. You can use it as set-and-forget way or apply it on top of an single envelope or LFO in the CV input. This way the modulator’s effect is applied a bit differently to each side.

Another special function in some characters is that the center point in the stereo pot is the zero spot. Move it to one side and the other moves in the other way the same amount. This way the filter can do some cool symmetric stereo phaser effects.
