Autofilter

Autofilter

The autofilter is a filter that can have its cut-off frequency altered either by the inputed signal or by its side-chain input (if used).

  1. attack - How fast the filter movement will reach its maximum depth.
  2. release - How fast the filter will move back to its initial frequency (see frequency).
  3. hold - Sets the duration the filter will stay at its maximum depth.
  4. gain - Boosts the gain of the signal.
  5. filter mode - The filter has 4 Modes: lowpass, lowpass inverted, hipass and hipass inverted.
  6. frequency - This parameter allows control over the filter's cut-off frequency.
  7. resonance - Allows control over the filter's resonance. NOTE: Don't turn it up too much, possible damage to your ears and mind.
  8. depth - Depth and direction of the filter movement.
  9. threshold - The threshold sets the filter's sensitivity, when will the the filter movement start.
  10. dry/wet - The dry/wet parameter lets you blend between the original (dry) and the filtered signal (wet). Turning the dry/wet to 0% will mean that the signal will pass through the device unchanged.
  11. side-chain - If a second signal is inputed into the autofilter's side-chain then the filter will react on the side-chain input instead of the main input signal.

    btw is this basically like a frequency compressor?

      i understand that the process in which it changes the audio is different, i was just saying how the things that trigger the compressor and autofilter are very similar, and it therefore (kinda) produces close to the same effect

      Technically a filter is different than a compressor. A compressor, even a multi-band one, will -attenuate- the level of the audio in the relevant frequency band. A filter -filters- it, that is, removes it. They sound different.

      It's basically a dynamic filter. The cutoff frequency reacts dynamically to the amplitude of the input/side-chain input signals.

    anyone found a use for this thing yet?

      vvv wow, that's a rly good idea @ne.time . i always get triggered by frequency interference between the kick and the bass

      Example of use : set it on a bass which has some high freq (harmonics, distortion or wtv), in one of the highpass mode (I never remember which one does what) and sidechain it to a kick that's only lowfreq. When your kick comes in the low freq from the bass is cut off resulting in no lo freq clipping without the lost of the high freq elements of your bass. The side chaining effect is super fun to experiment with.

      I used it to make a vocal effect out of a bass sample on my track "Loudmouth". It's the first sound you hear, which repeats throughout the whole track. You can open the draft and see for yourself. I also have a template "Autofilter on drums" where I show how you can use the resonance over some drum loop to have a whistling sound follow the dynamic of the percussion. It's a very powerful box.
