The Sherman Filterbank II is one of my favourite sound-mangling tools - I just love the gritty distortion it can add to drum sounds. I've used it quite a lot on our upcoming album "Enjoy The Fall". The Filterbank can also add life to digital synth sounds and is a recommendable addition to analog synths. I found its built quality pretty impressive as well – solid like a tank!

" We've had a version 1 Sherman Filterbank and a Quad Modular Filter for a few years now and are still one of the most used (and abused!) pieces of technology in our arsenal. Both feature heavily on our fourth album, which we're presently recording. The Filterbank is incredibly flexible and the potential for really extreme processing is unique in a product with such a high quality signal path. (That Limit switch comes in handy, though!)"

Charlie Clouser, keyboard-player with NINE INCH NAILS wrote :
" I have owned a few analog filters in my time, but none have the capabilities for complete sonic destruction that my Sherman FilterBank has. It is a most evil and wicked device that creates sounds I can't seem to coax out of any other gear. I won't go into battle without it. Highly recommended."

Pat Mastelotto, drummer with KING CRIMSON wrote :
" I love my Sherman! When mixing the King Crimson ProjeKct 3 material we put them on almost everything- in fact the trio was sort of a quartet with Sherman being the fourth member ! Lots of Sherman on Crimson 'Construcktion of light', "Heavy Construcktion" and 'ProjeKct X' CDs. I like to rhythmically twist the knobs so the growls, squeals, and fuzz bubble to the beat. Wonderful for fattening up electronic tom toms and kick drums. and wait till you hear the BPM&M record! This record is Bill Munyon and I building tracks from outakes of Fripp, Tony Levin and others in the Crimson family. Several track have dub mix coda elements sometimes built around Sherman moans that we looped. "

BIOHAZARD's Billy Graziadei wrote :
" Every time I use the Sherman Filter bank I'm amazed with the simplicity of use and the range of sounds I can achieve. I've used it all over our new album UNCIVILIZATION; for incredible filter sweeps, as a powerful eq, or for special effect sound designing. I can't imagine a world without SHERMAN! "

"The Sherman Filterbank: A Specialist in 'Grievous Bodily Harmonics'. Five minutes with this little monster and you realise that you are in the presence of a piece of hardware that is as essential as your speakers. The Manual is excellent. The transition from novice to master is swift".

Dr. Walker, Cologne, Germany, wrote :
" Wir benutzen die sherman filterbank um mehr leben in unsere samplez und digitalen sounds zu bringen. im mixdown von "acid"trax vollbringt sie wahre wunder. " (rei$$dorf force / air liquide - remixe u.a. fuer can, fm einheit, eternal, emf, dr.acid&mr.house, neu!, spearhead, ...)

David Morley (also working with Andrea Parker), wrote :
" I find the Sherman Filterbank to be one of the most useful studio pieces I own. I generally use it in combination with my modular synths. It functions perfectly as an additional module, but one that can perform many different and unique functions. Also, it really is analogue, unlike others which say "analogue", and you can really hear the difference. It has real power, not virtual power "

hey guys! this is Adrian from Rustcycle. i just wanted to let you know that i posted a new sample track from my upcoming CD on my site that might be useful for you. the track features 5 layers of guitar, 4 of which are heavily filtered - the track is a guitar and drum composition: http://cs.uccs.edu/%7eabjohnso/html/Daisho.mp3 (or access "Daisho" from the front page at rustcycle.com) thanks again for all your hard work - the FB2 completely changed how i write music :)

hi, my name is joseph fraioli aka datach'i. ive been a sherman 1 user since 1998 and have used it extensivly both for performing live and on my albums ... i must say it is my favorite piece of hardware, im always finding new ways to incorperate it into my sound, each time experimenting and finding new textures..even though i use mostly software these days, the sherman is always in the chain, proper beat filtering or even just to grit up a mix. you can hear sound clips from my latest album coming out on the UKs planet mu label this winter entitled "mmale and ffemale" here...

I just wanted to let you guys know the filter bank 2 is a work of art.
The sounds that come out of that box are amazing.
