«We’ve also got this guy who’s made some things for us. He makes these things called Shermans. They’re just wild. They sound really good. Extreme.»
Interview avec les Chemical Brothers, Keyboard, juin 1997, USA.
«Great analogue sound and considerable character. Lots of innovative features with plenty of scopes for experimentation. Portable. Very good value for money. What really sets the Sherman Filterbank apart from others in this crowded market, is the additional combinaison of overdrive, harmonics, envelope generators, LFO, VCAs and MIDI control. This is a hell of a processor. If Moog is a Rolls Royce, the Sherman Filterbank has to be a Porsche.»
Chris Carter, Sound on Sound, avril 1997, GB.
«A unite that promises the world of analogue synthesis without the price. The holy grail of unique sound.»
Peter Forrest, THE MIX, juillet 1996, GB.
