Are there any dedicated filter boxes out there using the same filter as the DWs and DSS-1?

I highly doubt it, but there are other cheap sources for this filter. The EX800 tabletop synth, some cheap drum machines from around 1984/85, and of course the DSM rackmount sampler (which has 16 of these puppies in there, but no res control) are some good ways to obtain them. I'm sure some circuit-bending enthusiast could make an analog filter module from these chips given the right tools and knowledge. They allow for both 12db and 24db modes, which only the DSS1 ever took advantage of.

this reminds me of the worst story of my life.

dss1

i go to value village(thrift store) with a band mate.
i see a keyboard leaning up against the store front window...i think "hey, full size key! wonder what that is?"
i go in, i see korg!
i say yay!
he says, "you can't afford it"
i say "maybe!"
he says "you owe me money, so no you can't" and takes it from me *GASP!*
i shrug, cuz he is right and wander off to look at used coke bottles and pepper shakers
bathroom break cuz my story is too long!
so, i wander back up the cash and see his poop eating grin.
i say "how much was it?"
he laughs and says "11 dollars, cuz it only has one sound according to the guy who brought it in"
he gets it home, all 11 dollars of it...and its humming like mad:(
he takes it to our tech, 1 drop of solder to re-attach the ground and hey! perfect working order.

moral of the story, kill you bass players.
that's not dirt, that's chili sauce!

Well, at least now the thread title actually applies! :shock:

galaxy, sorry to see you're selling yours. Guess it wasn't quite your type of synth. That's okay, hopefully you'll fetch around $200 for it and save up for something more to your liking. A DSS-1 with a working disk drive is getting rare nowadays -- just look at the other auctions currently running for the DSS-1.
