Legio Gets A Filter: Noise Engineering’s New Roucha Legio – Superbooth News

Noise Engineering has an amazing thing going with their two hardware platforms Versio and Legio, but there was a glaring omission. The Versio platform currently has 9 modules, but no dedicated filter. The Legio platform had 3 modules, and yet no dedicated filter. Now all those rogue frequencies have nowhere to hide. Meet Noise Engineering’s new stereo, multi-mode, wavefolding, pitch tracking, bypass-able filter: the Roucha Versio.

Once of the great things about fresh Noise Engineering modules is we don’t really need to tell you anything, because the dropmaster himself POB is here to give you the full rundown on the newest Legio.

Roucha Legio Features

  • Features
    • 12db/Octave multi-mode stereo filtering w/ CV control
    • Wavefolder with signal chain position control
  • Inputs
    • Stereo L/R audio ins
    • CV over frequency
    • CV over resonance
    • CV over fold
    • CV (Gate) over bypass
  • Filter modes
    • High-pass
    • Band-pass
    • Low-pass
  • Wavefolder position
    • Pre-filter
    • Post-filter
    • BOTH pre- and post-filter

Now that’s a nice amount of features in a 6HP. But why give the filter a bypass? Let’s hear from the NE team:

We really like dramatic buildups and cuts, so we made it easy with Roucha Legio. Just tap the encoder to bypass; tap again to turn the filter on again. Want to automate it? Send a gate into the Bypass input. The filter will remain bypassed as long as a high gate is present.

Makes sense to us. The Roucha Legio is available right now directly from the Noise Engineering site for $310. If you’re lucky enough to be at Superbooth Booth W280, the team is there ready to show off all the filtering, foldering goods.

Happy patching!
