Input Level - Audio signal input level control
Feedback - Resonance Loop. Can burst into self-oscillation. Inverted or non-inverted feedback for unusual effects.
Mix - Wet / Dry mix of filtered and unfiltered signal. Inverted or non-inverted mix. Mandatory for phasing; interesting for LPF mode because of phase cancellation effects.
Ouput Level - Output attenuator for audio signal
APF / LPF - Switches to change the function of the 6 filter stages from All Pass Filter (Pole/Zero pairs) to Low Pass Filter (Poles only). 3 Switches for 3 pairs. (6 individual switches would be possible as well.)
Mix / Filter - In "Filter" position the "Mix" potentiometer is disconnected for 100% filter signal without any crosstalk from the dry signal (important for powefull 36dB/Oct LPF effect).
Clean / Dirty - Dirty applies some dynamic load to the single-ended buffer of the last filter stage.
Active / Bypass - True hard bypass
Slope - Spreads the pole frequencies of the individual stages. This means less filter steepness in LPF mode (ccw end is 36dB/Oct), and wider notch spacing in Phaser (APF) mode.
LFO Amount - Modulation amount of on-board LFO
LFO Wave - Crossfade between LFO waveshapes: Tringle -> Sine -> Square -> Sample&Hold -> Audio-Rate Self-Modulation (see video).
