The perfect combination of simple and awesome! A plug and play pedal with tap tempo random sample/hold and envelope filtering.
From the ashes of the original Prometheus, the Proteus embraces a very different philosophy. In short, the Proteus is what many people wished the Prometheus had been: simpler and easier to use on the fly. The envelope filter mode is much more “funk” than “shoegaze.” The step filtering is pure random sample hold. No ultra-fine tuning required. Just tap to the beat, and Proteus does all the thinking for you.
Where the Prometheus was a mad science project run amok, the Proteus is exactly the opposite. Controls are simple, obvious, and do exactly what you expect,every time.
The low-pass filter does not cut out frequencies below the cutoff point, so the low end always stays intact.
Bypass Switch: Turns the effect off or on.
Tap/Mode Switch: Tapping the switch in time starts the sample/hold filter. Holding the switch down for one second switches back to envelope filter mode.
Frequency: Filter resting point.
Depth: Filter modulation range for both envelope follower and sample hold mode.
1-2-4: Step multiplier. One, two or four steps per beat (sample hold mode only)
Bonus: Use the internal switch for a band pass filter option.
