Anyone use one as a plug-in that they like the sound of? I'm specifically working on something where this would save exactly one metric butt-ton of automation...

  • What exactly are you using it for?

Soundtoys Filter Freak is great.

  • Thank you, @Justin: I've not grabbed any of Soundtoys' goodies yet, despite their rep, so I had totally overlooked Filter Freak. Great option! Nov 4, 2010 at 14:21
  • Using it right now…amazing results with minimal effort! Nov 5, 2010 at 3:59

I've been messing with the Bluecat plugins - at first they seem like straight forward level & spectrum analysis meters but they can output MIDI from their analysis!! So you could feed the level as a control voltage across to whatever filter plugin you like... http://www.bluecataudio.com

In the real/analogue world I personally like the Doepfer A119 module ;) Its intriguing that an analogue synth technique that has been around for decades is relatively rare in the virtual world....

  • Whoa, that's pretty unique! Super cool. Could totally see routing that data into this Waldorf Pulse on my desk..! :-) Nov 4, 2010 at 19:42

+1 for Filter Freak!


I think Live has one build inside. If you dont want to use Live, you can use the PSP Nitro for it, one of my fav. plugins at the moment
