SoundToys FilterFreak Resonant Analog Filter Plug-In delivers analog sweeps, pounding filter rhythms, big hardware sound with a dual version for double the analog attitude.
SoundToys FilterFreak was designed to be an infinitely customizable resonant filter plug-in bringing together the sounds of classic filter hardware with added controls and flexibility. Since its initial release in 2004, FilterFreak has become a go-to tool for producers and musicians when they need the fat analog sound of classic filters in their productions. From the sound of funky envelope followers such as the Mutron III, to the undulation of the Morley WahWah, or creating Sci-Fi sample-and-hold effects, FilterFreak is capable of all the classic sound-shaping you can think of. FilterFreak can create the huge resonant LFO sweeps of hardware such as the Sherman FilterBank, and can be tweaked synth-style with ASDR controls.
But FilterFreak goes beyond what can be accomplished in the world of hardware with an added Rhythm Mode allowing custom patterns (interchangeable with other Soundtoys plug-ins) to be created and locked to MIDI information. You can create auto-wah patterns or adjust the swing/shuffle feel using the Groove control. FilterFreak's Analog Styles give you control over the saturation qualities of the filter types. Drive your signal hard in any of the style types and you will hear the same classic saturation of analog circuitry. FilterFreak was designed from the very beginning to take resonant filter sound alteration to a whole new level.
FilterFreak's installation also includes FilterFreak2, a twin plug-in with not one but TWO independent filters, which can be run in either serial or parallel. Each filter contains a wealth of easily accessible and highly tweak-able parameters. FilterFreak allows you to fully unlock your creativity; it not only sounds and responds like classic analog hardware, but also opens up a new world of control and customization.
