NI Kontour uses a State Variable Filter. It's a very good synth. Not that easy to work with, at least for me, but super-powerful.

If you mean software, you can get OB-Xd. It's free

TAL-Noisemaker has some SV zero delay feedback filters.

Are you looking for a synth which actually models SVF topology or something that has LPF, HPF, BPF modes?
Diva's Uhbie filter is probably a good example of a modeled SVF.
If you are looking for a synth with a filter which can crossfade between LPF>Notch/BPF>HPF, Madrona Labs Aalto and anything that emulates and SEM should do it.

For example OB-XD (free), Arturia SEM V2 and the Uhbie filter in U-He Diva.

In both SEM V2 and the Uhbie filter the filter modes are morphable like in a real SEM.
While in the SEM and Arturia SEM V2 the BPF mode is separated from the morphing in the Uhbie filter you could switch between Notch or the BPF inlcuded in morphing. You could get LPF->BPF->HPF and LPF->Notch/BR->HPF morphing there.

SynthMaster 2.8 has a SVF filter with LP, HP, BP, BS, and Multi types. SynthMaster One has pretty much the same as well, except for the Multi.

"State Variable filter is modeled after analog state
variable filters found in synths like the SEM. It is a
zero delay feedback filter and is available in 5
types: Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, Bandstop
and Multimode. When filter type is set to multimode,
Mode parameter changes the type of the filter from
Lowpass to Bandstop (Notch) to Highpass.
Acid: When this button is pressed, the filter
resonance is coupled to the cutoff frequency: When
cutoff decreases the resonance decreases as well.
This gives a nice TB303 style “Acid” filter response!"

TAL-Noisemaker is a surprisingly good sounding synth! :tu:

OB-Xd is probably one of my favorite synths! Love that Oberheim sound! :tu:

Indeed. :) Only small niggle i have with it is that the envelopes aren't exactly fast, but, i guess that's down to them not being overly fast in the synth it loosely models too (AFAIK, some Roland model, probably the Juno-60).

Oh, and the 6 voice polyphony isn't that great either.

Wow! The fast envelopes are what I really liked about it. Actually I use em to guage everhthing else.

Also the new Fathom synth has a SV filter amongst its arsenal

I also noticed hy-filter 2 effects vst has a state variable filter.
