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 ~ 18318.000 Hz
  • RES
    Controls the Resonance or “Q” of the Filter, which emphasizes the cutoff frequency to the point of oscillation at the highest settings.
    Range: 0.000 ~ 1.000
  • WIDTH
    Controls the amount of Frequency separation between the filters.
    Range: 0.000 ~ 1.000
  • TYPE
    Drop-down menu determines the sonic character of the different filter options.
    Low Pass 24 dB, Band Pass 24 dB, High Pass 24 dB, LP/LP, BP/BP, HP/HP, LP/BP, LP/HP, BP/HP
  • DRIVE
    Controls the amount of overdrive/saturation.
    Range: 0 ~ 1
  • LEVEL
    Adjusts the overall output volume.
    Range: 0.000 ~ 1.000

PAGE TWO CONTROLS

  • [CUTOFF] DEPTH
    Controls the sweep range of the cutoff modulation.
    Range: 0.000 ~ 1.000
  • [CUTOFF] SYNC
    Engages and disengages synchronization of the LFO rate with the host’s tempo.
  • [WIDTH] RATE
    Controls the speed of the Filter’s width cycles.
    Range:

    Unsynced: 0.000 Hz ~ 15.000 Hz
  • [WIDTH] DEPTH
    Controls the modulation range of the width sweeping LFO.
    Range: 0.000 to 1.000
  • [WIDTH] SYNC
    Engages and Disengages synchronization of the LFO rate with the host’s tempo.
