Device Details


Name | Version: M4L Step Filter 0.9
Author: egnouf
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: Step Filter V0.9 (10th september 2013)
an XOX step filter sequencer that tend to simulate a very old analog step filter with a lot of characters (disto, bit reduction, sample reduction).

The sequencer is derived from the BIGSEQ plug in from Audiodamage. I also got inspired by the sample reduction (SRR) and bit reduction (BRR) effects from the Octatrack.

Be aware that you can really go deep in the filter DISTORTION.


** Use this patch with a BASS note/FX /SYNTH/PAD NOTE to create easily nice sound distortion sequence!

** I advice you to add a limiter after this plug in as you can really go high in the filter distortion.

Main Functions
- You can change the FILTER AMOUNT for each steps
- You can RANDOMIZE the filter velocity and the steps sequence.
- You can choose among SEVERAL FILTERS (LP, HP, Notch, LowShelf, etc).
- PANIC function
- secret panel
- HACK mode (SRR & BRR Octatrack alike)

- You can change the direction, playing forward or reverse
- You can select the speed for each row -> 1/16, 1/8, 1/32, etc.
- you can change the length of the sequence from 1 step to 16 steps.
- all the functions can be mapped on your favorite midi controller.
