“2RuleFilter” is a self-resonant moog type filter that allows the filter cut-off frequency to be controlled manually, or by LFO, or by an envelope follower. It has a interresting feature called “scrambler” that plays filtered signal randomly depending on the selected beat. The “mix” knob mixies wet and dry signals, The “volume” knob is for setting the output volume level. The”Bit crusher” produces hard sound. Using its scramble feature you can maintain the rhythmic, choppy, buffered and tempo sync output.
- High Pass, Low Pass, Band Pass filter
- Modulation of filter cut-off frequency by LFO (tempo-sync), manuallly or envelope follower(reversable)
- Bit crusher (16bit to 1 bit)
- Scrambler that devide one measure to different time intervall and plays beats randomly.
- Mix ballance in between dry(input signal) and wet(filtered and bit crushed).
- Sensitivity that allows the filter cut-off frequency be changed from roughly to smoothly. This effect is the same of parameter smoothing.
Audio Damage: 914 Fixed Filter Bank – link
The Audio Damage 914 Fixed Filter Bank is a faithful recreation of the Moog Modular Synthesizer’s 914 module, and a major upgrade to our original 907A plugin. This plugin creates unique filter textures by passing the signal through twelve band-pass filters, as well as a low-pass and high-pass filter.
The 914 is a subtle effect, capable of adding rich luster to pads, and giving percussive and lead synth sounds a vocal quality. It is an excellent tool for the sound designer’s palette, simple to use yet capable of complex and unique timbres. Improvements over the original 907A include a bandwidth control, separate level adjustments for wet and dry signal, makeup gain, and four extra frequency bands.
914 Fixed Filter Bank Features:
» 24db Low-pass and high-pass filters.
» Twelve fixed-frequency band-pass filters.
» True stereo operation.
» Separate wet and dry level controls.
» 15dB of makeup gain on the wet level.
» Full MIDI learn mode, for MIDI CC control of every control (VST only; handled by host in AU version).

This is a MIDI-controllable filter, that gives all your plugins or synths that famous thick sound you all know well. It is stereo and has MIDI control. Put it as an insert into your audio track or behind your synth plugin. Use the frequency and resonance dial for a static sound, or feed it with MIDI-notes to use the integrated envelope generator!
V1.2 has a new GUI (on request of a major company, who thought it looked too similar to their products), an envelope follower, two more filter types (BP, HP) and a faster envelope.
Available for Windows PC as VST-plugin.
May 24th, 2010: Voxengo Deft Compressor version 1.1 update is now available for download.
Voxengo Deft Compressor is an audio track and bus compressor plug-in for professional audio production applications.
It is available in AudioUnit and VST plug-in formats, for Mac OS X and Windows computers. Version 1.1 update includes the following changes:
* Attack time range extended down to 0.01ms.
* External side-chain support added.
The characteristic feature of this compressor is its ability to produce “slim” and “slick” sounding compression, with intelligibility enhancement effect.
Such result is achieved by compressor’s timing function that closely resembles the S-curve on both attack and release stages.
The S-curve timing function means that the attack and release stages “look” like S-curve (sigmoid curve).
Such curve sonically adds a very warm coloration, without sharp edge. Beside that, S-curve on longer release times possesses a bit of “hold” time delay where it does not change.
This allows the compressor to have clean, almost uncolored higher frequencies.
Note that for bus compression to be unnoticeable you may need to set both the “Threshold” and “Ratio” parameters to lower values (e.g. “-35” and “1.3:1”, respectively, for input signal with RMS power equal to -24 dBFS).
Deft Compressor features:
* S-curve timing function * “Vintage” compression mode
* Auto make-up gain
* External side-chaining
* Multi-channel processing
* Internal channel routing
* Channel grouping
* Up to 8x oversampling
* 64-bit floating point processing
* Preset manager
* Undo/redo history
* A/B comparisons
* Contextual hint messages
* Zero processing latency
Voxengo Deft Compressor end-user license is available for purchase on-line for US$99.95.

Last month my Computer Music Magazine came plopping through the door just as I was on my way off on holiday, when I finally got back I hardly read it.
But then I saw a name on the front cover that I recoginsed from previous issues.
Martin Eastwood, creator of CompressiveCM, a fantastic compression plugin exclusively offered with Computer Music Magazine.
The new plugin is called ‘Duet’ an automatic double-tracking/harmonizer effect that can be used as a VST plugin.
‘By independently pitch-shifting the left and right inputs, Duet allows audio pitch to be manipulated in real-time, while still maintaining the time duration. By also delaying the re-pitched audio and altering its pan position, Duet can accurately create the illusion of multiple voices and add a luscious texture to your music.
This allows you to enhance vocals and instruments, such as guitars, by thickening the sound and adding a rich glossy sheen to your music. Happy harmonizing’ – Martin Eastwood
