Description: FilterShaper 3 is a huge leap in an unconventional sound design that features 2 powerful filters, freely editable modulation curves and an extremely flexible modulation scheme. New Sallen-Key filters provide rich, warm and complex sound. Create complex, offset, intertwined effects. Apply subtle nuances or giant vibrations. From filters and stereo tremolo to surgical precision filter control.
FilterShaper 3 takes a giant leap into unconventional sound design with two powerful filters, freely editable modulation curves, and an immensely flexible modulation framework.
The new Sallen-Key type filters deliver a rich, warm, intricate sound. Create complex, shifting, interweaving effects. Apply subtle nuances or giant wobbles. From filtersweeps and stereo tremolo to surgically-precise filter control.
Experiment and Explore
Start with two filters, running in serial or in parallel, plus a set of simple controls. Then set things in motion: All main controls have their own modulation section with two flexible LFOs and one envelope follower each. For advanced effects editing, each LFO in turn has its own speed and intensity control – each with its own LFO and envelope follower. And all LFOs can be MIDI triggered. Visual feedback on each control and oscilloscope views on each LFO keep you focused. And a community-powered, ever-growing library of presets provides starting points and inspiration for your own sounds.
Total Precision Control
FilterShaper 3 excels at surgically precise control. For pinpoint tweaking of the modulation curves and a close-up oscilloscope view, open up the detail panel. Filter out a specific beat in a loop. Tame a booming kick. Or shape a tired sample into something lively and vibrant. You have two filters, 60 LFOs, and 50 envelope followers at your fingertips – a detailed, interconnected toolbox for shaping your sound.
Advanced Dualband Sidechain Effects
As well as pinpoint editing, pulsing rhythmic effects, and left-field, alien craziness, FilterShaper 3 can deliver flexible, precisely timed sidechain compression effects. For dualband sidechain, set up filter one to manage the lows and assign filter two to the highs. Duck out the bass when the kick hits, take out the highs to emphasize a snare – simply draw the curve for each as required.
