The Power Filter is a brand new filter developed in cooperation with GMedia, which is based on their famous impOSCar filter design.This rich sounding filter requires a fair amount of CPU power and should be used sparingly on slower computer systems. It’s the same Power Filter as the one on the Filter section, but with more filter types and an additional dedicated LFO for sweeping the width, which is useful for producing formant and vowel sweeps.

CAUTION: The Power Filter has tremendous headroom and is capable of very loud sounds that can hurt your ears and damage your speakers if you aren’t careful. GMedia’s warning that it “Screams like a Bastard” should be heeded! Please be mindful of this when working with the Resonance, Drive and Gain knobs.

PAGE ONE CONTROLS

CUTOFF

Controls the cutoff frequency of the Filter. Range: 17.125 to 18318 Hz.

RES

Controls the Resonance or “Q” of the Filter, which emphasizes the cutoff frequency to the point of oscillation at the highest settings.

WIDTH

Controls the amount of Frequency separation between the filters. Range: 0 to 1.

TYPE

Drop-down menu determines the sonic character of the different filter options.

Low Pass 24dB, Band Pass 24dB, High Pass 24dB, LP/LP, BP/BP, HP/HP, LP/BP, LP/HP, BP/HP

DRIVE

Controls the amount of overdrive/saturation. Range: 0 to 1

LEVEL

Adjusts the overall output volume. Range: 0 to 1

PAGE TWO CONTROLS

[CUTOFF] DEPTH

Controls the sweep range of the cutoff modulation. Range: 0 to 1

[CUTOFF] SYNC

Engages and Disengages synchronization of the LFO rate with the host’s tempo.

[WIDTH] RATE

Controls how fast or slow the filter width cycles.

Range:

[WIDTH] DEPTH

Controls the modulation range of the width sweeping LFO. Range: 0 to 1

[WIDTH] SYNC

Engages and Disengages synchronization of the LFO rate with the host’s tempo.
