Sherman Filterbank

Dirt is a collection of sounds with the focus on saturated, distorted and edgy sounds. Just with our soundset EMP3, Dirt is a collection of sounds where we don’t focus on a particular style or a selected synthesizer - but rather on the processing of the sounds.

Dirt is based on the sound of the famous Sherman Filterbank 2. While on paper, it's called a filter module - the Sherman Filterbank is a classic when it comes to roughen up a sound and give it a dirtier edge.

"dirt is based on sounds processed by the legendary sherman filterbank."

From a sound design perspective, the Sherman Filterbank is truly a wild beast. It’s powerful, unpredictable, noisy and will almost never do what you want. With Dirt we worked with the Filterbank in the only possible way: set the computer to record, start tweaking the Filterbank until you are seriously overloaded with material, then spend the rest of the week picking out the best parts.

As the source material we mainly used traditional synth waveforms, and to give them a rhythmic context we added a handful of classic Roland drum sounds as well.
