Basement Arts releases Frantic filter v1.0 (Win)

Basement Arts

Basement Arts has released the Frantic VST filter effect plug-in for Windows. The Mac AU and VST versions are in development.

Frantic is an analogue sounding dedicated filter and is modelled after such famous analogue legends as the Korg MS20, Oberheim Xpander, OSC Oscar, Sherman Filterbank and the classic Moog Filter.

Features such as Filter Separation, inspired by the Oscar, gives your sounds that creamy delicate sound as well as offering more filter combinations than the original. Basements Arts has combined the various classic filters with an easy-to-use interface that offers the user basic modulations as well as allows one to perform complex audio surgery via the central modulation matrix. The matrix features a tricky shape X with Y feature that was inspired by the Crumar Spirit and offers access to some unique stereo modulations of the 2 true stereo filters.


  • Dual true stereo filters with serial/parallel modes.
  • 40 filter-modes with over 800 possible filter-combinations.
  • Filter closely modelled after analogue legends like Korg MS20, Oberheim Xpander, OSC Oscar and Minimoog.
  • Filter-Separation inspired by the Oscar.
