The blurb seems to imply it's a proper moog high pass like the 904B, but
clearly it isn't by the reviewers comments. Resonance works with the 904B,
but since the cutoff is increased as the transistor non-linearity is hit
it's a good idea to limit the feedback signal before it gets sent to the
input of the filter. In a regular moog ladder the cutoff is decreased with
the non-linearity. I've modelled a resonant Moog high pass filter in my
plugin The Drop, it's called PRD HP.

The Moog Ladder 500 module looks like the real deal. It has a hp / lp
switch, and 12 / 24 dB slope selectors, so I'm guessing this is a proper
moog high pass. I would love to see the schematic for it since the topology
of the two filters is quite different - they may just have two entire whole
filters inside - which would be a shame since you can't use them both at
once to make a mega bandpass filter.
