Straight from the glorious days of the analog synth, the tone-controlling power of these 3 filters were immortalized in the Matrix-12, Bob Moog's synth, and SEM.
Rocketing forward through time, the inimitable sound of these filters is now available as a standalone plugin, ready to change the way you create and mix music, and to become your go-to choice when you’re looking for ways to creatively control the frequency content of your audio.
What can these filters do?”
“My software instruments already have filters, why would I need a filter plugin?”
It’s an exciting feeling to shape the sound of electric guitars, drums, vocals, brass instruments, and samples using the lush analog sound of famous synth filters. With this plugin bundle, it’s easy to create atmospheric drops by low-pass filtering the high-end out. Or why not by cutting the bass with a high-pass filter, creating a bit of tension and expectation before a chorus, for example?
The fun doesn’t stop there. Beyond simply using the filters as they were originally designed, you can also use one of the many added features to step things up. Start experimenting with envelope programing, push your input gain and saturate your signal with analog drive, or add a bit of randomness to your sequences. You can also map your controller keyboard to any of the 3 Filter’s MIDI CC parameters, letting you adjust and perform using any of the filters on the fly. This is great for use in a live setting, giving you instant, hands-on control.
Each plugin also contains dozens of presets for you to explore, and use as the basis of your own, personalized sound.
Iconic synth sound-shaping on any audio source
Beautifully recreated vintage effects don’t come easy.
Using our exclusive TAE modelling technology, we are able to map out the sound and behaviour of electronic instruments, right down to the level of individual components, to create accurate software emulations of these groundbreaking synths and keyboards. As our modelling methods examine the core components, we found that we were also able to isolate certain features. The thought of using Dr Moog’s famous ladder filter, or one of Tom Oberheim’s multi-mode marvels on any audio source in our DAW excited us. We thought it would excite you, too.
With these powerful filter effects, we not only give you access to these classic modules, we have also fleshed each plugin with creativity-focused bonus features that take them all to another level. From M12-Filter’s modulation matrix and programmable envelopes to Mini-Filter’s sequencer, we know that you’re going to love exploring and experimenting with these filters to enhance your music.
Each plugin combining classic tone control with exciting modern functionality, so that whenever you need a filter in your productions, Arturia has you covered.

What? This is just ridiculous. So many easily manipulated controls that make a real difference to the sound. And the presets are amazing. Try ‘Ratchet Club’, as it is a time dependent filter, that creates musically rhythmic aspects to the sound you are applying it to. You can then adjust the settings to suit your part. Unbelievable.Steven A Williams

Damn these filters and preamps are insane! So thick and syrupy. What am I supposed to do with all my precious hardware? Uh?Paul Godfrey
