Updated and Improved 3 Leaf Proton in stock

Meet the new Proton - A modern, updated homage to the classic Mutron III envelope filter and the best envelope filter you’ll ever use.

The Mutron III envelope filter was a staple of 1970′s funk and soul music that shaped the sounds of Bootsy Collins, Stevie Wonder and Jerry Garcia among others. But as good as the Mutron sounded, it was not without its problems. It was huge and required a special power supply, and it had a sensitivity control that changed your volume when you kicked it on. Then there’s the price – originals routinely fetch $500  or more on eBay!

The Proton is an optically controlled analog envelope filter. The circuit has been completely redesigned to offer better tone and a more musical response. It has a new detector circuit based on the one in the Chromatron, and the familiar control layout has a greatly expanded range that can get the classic 1970s filter sounds and well beyond. The new range switch allows for much deeper filter sweeps, and the reworked tone knob covers every soundscape from cocked wah to laser beams.

Imagine the sound of the previous version, now imagine it sounds even better than that and You can purchase one right here.
