Envelope filter with tap tempo and modulation.
The Funkzilla is everything enveloped, filtered or both. While all envelope filters give you the ability to coax that familiar “quack” sound from them, the Funkzilla contains the ability to shift the filtering from envelope control to LFO control. In other words, it’s the ultimate funk box.
Attack, Depth and Freq(uency) controls come standard, as does the envelope direction (up or down). Beyond that, the heart of the Funkzilla lies within its Tap/Env switch. This switch toggles between standard envelope filter sounds and more dynamic autosweep sounds that take away the need for dynamics.
With this switch set to Tap, a plethora of options opens up. The Speed and Mode knobs become active, as does the tap switch, along with 1-2-4 and Wave toggles. The Speed knob now controls the speed of the auto-sweep (overridden by the Tap switch), and the 1-2-4 toggle controls the time subdivisions.
You can adjust the Funkzilla’s Mode control to one of eight different rhythmic patterns for the utmost expression, and across those patterns, you can choose one of three different waveforms—sine, ramp, and square.
