CUNSA is a beautifully wide module full of sugar and spice and all things pinagable, filtered, saturated, mixed and oscillated times four.



What a stunning piece of work. Frap Tools likens it to seasoning in cooking, where it’s a process that enhances the flavour, glues the ingredients and adds some unexpected kick. The imagery is definitely working for me.

Cunsa is a quadruple analogue pinagble multimode resonant filter with saturation mixing and potential oscillation. It has four filters with custom warming circuits and a feedback control that you can use individually or corporately, depending on your chosen routing.

Each filter has access to all three modes of low, high and bandpass running up a 12 dB slope, and there’s a 24 dB option for the lowpass. A “Character” circuit makes use of a resonance overload to add in soft clipping. As you turn it up, it goes from screaming to fat tones and controlled saturation. When soft-oscillation occurs, it can be utilised with the 1v/oct input. You can do this individually or combined into a four-oscillation chord machine.


The “Ping” circuit gently responds to incoming gates with a selectable decay curve. It’s very organic and natural sounding and can be used to feed the filters for some high-Q ringing.

Everything is routable in different ways, either on its own or as part of a whole. Eventually, the four filters reach the analogue mixing stage, where you can send them out as a mix or as a sub-mix of channels 1&2 and 3&4. There’s also some gentle shelving EQ for the pedantic.



There’s an awful lot going on in this module. You can imagine your whole rig ending up going through it in one way or another. At €840, it’s certainly a premium module and will be available at the end of May.
