IKARIE is a stereo/dual peak analog filter module with unique tuning and design. Continuously variable low-pass and high-pass filtering with a single knob greatly increases real-time performance possibilities. The envelope follower also expands the variety of sounds.

The two filter circuits can be synchronously modulated in the stereo domain, separated or chained together to form a 2dB filter for unique stereo effects.
By using only the monaural output of the filter, IKARIE operates as a "dual peak filter" and can reproduce formant-type sounds that are just like a "voice." Furthermore, the Beyond output allows the device to be used as a "twin peak filter" due to the difference in the spectra of the two filters.IKARIE is a filter, but it has a VCA added to the output stage, so you can manipulate the sound in any vector.

This module is a collaboration between Bastl Instruments (Václav Peloušek) and Casper Electronics (Peter Edwards). Attention to detail gives this filter a uniquely balanced resonance and envelope response, while a high-performance filter design with BASTL's unique control scheme puts it all in one hand.
