The Dr. Sicentist Dusk is a digitally controlled analog filter with an analog 24dB/Octave low pass filter based around an old-school integrated circuit called an Operational Transconductance Amplifier.
It has three modes: Envelope, LFO and Cut, which makes it behave like a regular synth filter with frequency cut selected manually. The LFO mode gives you 6 waves to choose from.
The digital side brings powerful features like controlling the filter setting, tap tempo. It features a CV, Midi and Expression in for external control.

Dusk is a digitally controlled analog filter. At its heart is an analog 12dB/Octave low pass filter based around an old-school integrated circuit called an Operational Transconductance Amplifier or OTA. The OTA runs off of split +/-9V rails for great audio quality and a deep filter sound. The digital side brings a whole bunch of convenient and powerful features like controlling the filter setting, tap tempo, MIDI, 6 LFOs, and a platform for all the best filter modes in one small pedal.
