The team at Arturia is no stranger to creating digital replications of iconic hardware synthesizers and instruments, so it's of no surprise that they've turned their attention to recreating some of the most iconic synth filters of all time as well. This bundle features a perfectly curated collection of the most creative filters from some of the most legendary synthesizers ever created. 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 plug-in, 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.
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 plug-in 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.
Dr Moog’s iconic, smooth ladder filter, accurately recreated and updated with modern features. In 2003, Arturia collaborated with Bob Moog to recreate the illustrious synthesizers he designed as software instruments, allowing a whole new generation of musicians, producers, and enthusiasts the chance to experience his unique method of synthesis. Fast-forward 15 years, and sadly the godfather of synthesis is no longer with us; but his legacy remains forever.
Through Arturia's collaborative efforts and expertise, they were not only able to perfectly recreate his iconic 70s monosynth, but also isolate individual components. The 24dB per octave ladder filter has always been at the core of the Model D monosynth mythos, and we were intrigued as to how it would sound on other audio sources. So Arturia applied the greatest care and used the latest technological advances to reproduce its warm and highly musical tone.
Simple, great-sounding state-variable filter with mode blending, analog soft-clipping and mod matrix. The original SEM, or Synthesizer Expander Module, was one of the world’s first all-in-one synth packages. Created to expand the capabilities of other synths, it could serve many purposes. Adding polyphony, fattening up their sound, and performing sequences in a supporting role to a main synth were all familiar roles for SEM.
One of the most remarkable modules on the SEM was its VCF. The 12dB per octave multi-mode filter helped define the sonic identity of Oberheim’s popular 70s synth, because it shaped a diverse range of sounds that were almost impossible to get on other synthesizers. SEM-Filter not only carefully models the crossfadable modes of the filter - low-pass, high-pass, notch and band-pass, but also expands its functionality and features to create a great-sounding, versatile filter plug-in that you’ll want to use on every track you create.
The master of complexity and depth, Tom Oberheim’s legendary 80s filter on steroids. In 1984, audio and electronics legend Tom Oberheim developed a groundbreaking subtractive, analog polyphonic synthesizer; a brave move when the digital synth revolution was taking the industry by storm. Standing the test of time, his brainchild instrument is now considered a classic, and our emulated version takes pride of place in V Collection. One of the main reasons it turned heads in the 80s was its audacity, the sheer power of its signal routing options, and its multi-mode filter.
The original synthesizer’s filter employed a single filter per voice, but provides no fewer than 15 different filter modes. This included Low Pass and three High Pass modes, two Band Pass modes, a Notch filter, and a Phase Shift mode. It also included another 4 modes, combining 1-Pole Low Pass filters with other modes. This unique selection of filter options is largely responsible for the immense power and scope of the fabled Matrix sound.
