this is the reconstruction of the sherman filterbank, done for my brother these days, which is dreaming of the real one....
its mostly guessed how it could work reading its usermanual. i don´t own any myself, if anyone does so, some feedback would be cool, i´m sure i just invented some stuff for myself since i do not know how the original exactly works.
but nontheless it has got some funny functions. a short description.

it includes
the input gain with valve distortion, high boost or cut.
2 filters, which are changeable between LP-BP-HP by knob.
a strange correctionknob, which allows you to get more and various filtercharacteristics.
self resonation of filters.
envelope-sensitivity of filters individually adjustable.
an adsr envelope, whit optional negative sustain, which can also work in an envelope-following-mode.
a lfo, syncable to incoming audio with a speedrange from lf to audio. with normal or phaseinverted depth.
an vca-envelope which you can switch on. uses trigger of incoming audio, can also be switched to external.
external FM.
parallel and serial mode of filters.
output with another valvedistortion.
and a pseudostereo-switch.

I could've sworn there was an updated version of this with a modern gui. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Or have I gone insane??

Thank you very much, this is really close to the original..i used to have one but sold it long ago. I did always regret that but not anymore! The hermans low end sounds really warm and nicely distorted, the AM input works perfectly with another trigger signal..great stuff. I love it!

Thanks! I was really hankering for a sherman filterbank again (used to own one) and this gets me pretty darn close, though it is not as violent as the real unit. Yours is almost MORE usable, because it is smoother. Thank yOU!!!

I've never had my hands on the Sherman thing, and anyway I don't mind if it has the same sound or not; all I can say is that it's a real pleasure to use. It's unpredictable (for me) and very nice sounding. Thank you Kassian!

this is probably my favourite filter made with reaktor. it is a must download for anyone into filters. i am very impressed with how you have captured the uniqueness of the sherman, especially the harmonics. this really is great!!

i love it! sounds great...i know it's an adapation of hardware...is it possible to have that real stereo...does that make sense...?

This sounds really close to the original. I had a mk I Sherman and you've managed to capture the harmonic distortion and pinging resonance of it. In general, the unit has a delightful unpredictability and so does this patch. Excellent work!
