The Philtre is an important part of my drum machine rig. It does
excellent lo-pass, hi-pass, band-pass and band-reject filtering. You
can set it to act like an auto-wah, like a filter LFO, you can operate
it manually like a wah-wah (except with a knob), or you can tell it to
come up with random (but repeating) patterns.
The Bitrman's best offering is bit reduction, a crunchy type of
distortion popularized by Nine Inch Nails and Atom Heart. It also has
traditional overdrive, compression, comb filtering, and a nice upward
pitch shifter. (It only pitch-bends upward.)
Why on earth Alesis discontinued these devices is beyond me.
