The most advanced, adaptable filter of its era
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 Arturia's emulated version takes pride of place in their 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. This filter is now available as a re-energized creative plugin for your DAW.
Iconic filter tone with a modern twist
As if accurately recreating Tom Oberheim’s original filter wasn’t amazing enough, Arturia also supercharged this virtual version with contemporary features that you’re going to love. Practically an instrument in its own right, the reborn Filter M12 is packed with intuitive yet powerful features. With it, you’ll be able to transform your source material into totally new sounds; create pulsing patterns; perform dramatic sweeps; or simply hone your tone using one of its many filter modes. Its CPU-friendly, low latency architecture also make it the perfect, animatable filter to use in your live sets and performances.
Made possibly through the magic of Arturia’s True Analog Emulation technology, we originally brought the sonic signature of this 80s icon into the 21st century studio in Matrix-12 V, our critically acclaimed software version of Oberheim’s classic, and a jewel in the crown of the Arturia V Collection. Arturia wanted to unleash the power of Matrix-12 V’s filter, free it from the software synth, and create a new, exciting DAW plugin. To echo the depth and complexity of its synth family, they supercharged the filter with extra processing, modulation envelopes, and vast routing options with a modulation matrix.
Load up your DAW with plugins you’ll actually use
Arturia's software plugins also have outstanding compatibility, and are available in VST, AU, and AAX formats so no matter your DAW of choice, you’ll be able to enjoy awesome Arturia sound-shaping.
