Super versatile dual filter and wavefolder module!

Blades is an incredible Dual Voltage Controlled Analogue Filter and Wavefolder module. It comes with a bit of distortion on each channel as well, you can use it to make complex oscillator sounds, and it is especially good for West Coast style FM percussion synthesis, when each filter is "pinged" by a trigger you can make incredible drum sounds.

The hard to find IC set available above includes 7x opa1679, 6xV2164, 3xTL074 and 3x OPA1678.

Building Blades

People who are inexperienced at SMD soldering might like to try building a first.

Blades is an advanced level build. It uses a lot of 0402 passives, using a stencil and solder paste will be much easier than hand solder, several newer builders have successfully built 0402 modules this way

All our boards come with build support.

We only use top end PCB factories that thoroughly test the PCBs and are kinder to the environment and their workers.

Here's a Mouser Cart BOM for easy ordering of most parts and for costing your builds. Try ordering several projects at once for lowest prices.
