“Module A-105 is another voltage-controlled low-pass filter with 24dB/octave slope. The A-105 is very similar to the A-122 that is made with a CEM chip. But in contrast to the A-122 the A-105 is made with the legendary SSM filter chip SSM2044. This chip was used e.g. in these synthesizers: Korg Polysix, Korg Mono/Poly, Fairlight II, PPG Wave 2.2 und 2.3, Emu SP-1200, Siel DK600, Siel Opera 6. The first Prophets used the SSM2040 – the precedessor of the 2044 – that generates a very similar sound. The special feature of the 4 pole low pass SSM2044 is the patented so-called “true open loop design that delivers a characteristic fat sound not available from other devices” (extract from SSM2044 data sheet). The module will feature voltage controlled resonance and a sensitve audio input to obtain distortion – if desired. Regarding to the functions, controls and in/outputs the module is identical to the 24dB low pass filter A-122 that is built around a CEM chip. But the sound, the resonance behaviour and the distortion behaviour are completely different for both modules.”
“Module A-108 is a completely new voltage-controlled low pass pass filter based on the well-known transistor ladder (Moog ladder). The module has internally an 8 stage low pass filter with different slopes available: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 and 48 dB per octave. In addition it features an band pass output (i.e. band pass with transistor ladder). In the factory the 4 low pass outputs of the A-108 are internally connected to the filter stages 6, 12, 24 and 48dB. From our first A-108 audio tests this seems to be the best output combination as these outputs generate audible different sounds. E.g. the audible difference between the 48dB and 42dB or between 42dB and 36dB is very little. But if desired any of the filter stages can be connected to one of the outputs.

“The Multiband Filter
Critical band equalization and compression
The multiband filter BARK takes the approach to match the reception characteristic of the final destination of all sound: the ear. The ear behaves as if it contains a bank of filters, each filter passing frequencies within the critical band. Two tones separated by more than a critical bandwidth are received by the ear independently. For this reason BARK contains a filter bank with 27 bandpass filters matching the critical bandwidth.
In fact, the human ear have also its own built in compression system which are based on the critical bands. Consequently BARK incorporates an independent compression algorithm for each of it’s 27 bands.
