Filter is a resonant filter with 7 modes, swiftly getting rid of frequencies you don't like or enhancing frequencies you do:
- Type - The type of filter. Select between low pass, band pass, high pass, notch, low shelf, peak and high shelf filters.
- Cutoff knob - The operating frequency of the filter. In a low-pass filter this is the frequency where the signal is reduced by 3dB.
- Q knob - The filter Q setting. High values for Q will make the filter resonate at the cutoff frequency.
- Gain - The gain value for the low shelf, peak and high shelf filter types.
- Settings panel - Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets.
- Enabled checkbox - The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.
- Resize handle - The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Filter as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.).
Filter shines on it's own, but it was primarily created to power up the different "Snapin Hosts" Kilohearts offer. These are bigger effects units that utilize all the available snapins and give you a really fun and creative workflow for combining them in any way you can think of. So have a look at Snap Heap and Multipass right now.
Filter is also available as a Rack Extension for Reason over at the Propellerhead shop.
