Ever wanted to use one of the world’s most famous synth filters in your DAW?
The classic filter from our lovingly recreated Mini V software instrument is now in a dedicated plugin. Now you can add the familiar filter tone to warm or smooth out your audio, or to add sweetness to a sensitive recording.
Not only that, but Mini-Filter also includes a powerful modulation section which consists of an envelope follower, an LFO, and a step sequencer. A patch manager is also built-in, along with a set of presets to inspire your creativity.
An essential, expressive, and creative tool for any producer or performer.
Straight from the legendary 70s monosynth
Mini-Filter is the latest chapter in the story of Arturia’s True Analog Emulation technology.
In 2003, we 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 our collaborative effort and expertise, we 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 we applied the greatest care and used the latest technological advances to reproduce its warm and highly musical tone.
“But what does a filter actually do?”
For many music producers and electronic musicians, filters are an essential part of their sound and creative process. Put simply, filters cut or boost certain sound frequencies, letting you control the tonal ‘shape’ of audio.
For example, if you had a vocal recording that you wanted to remove some low, bassy rumbles from, you could use a high-pass filter.
A low-pass filter could be used in the same way, but to remove unwanted high frequencies; maybe to tame particularly zingy cymbals or hi-hats in a drum recording.
Notch filters can pinpoint certain frequencies and either boost or cut them; one great use for these is to find and remove clothy, unwanted mid-range resonance from recordings of acoustic instruments.
Originally developed to remove broadcast noise and make the most of radio bandwidth, nowadays filters are an essential creative tool for music professionals.
One legendary filter, one FX plug-in
Whether you’re a singer, a guitarist, a DJ, a producer, Mini-Filter will spice up your music.
Emphasize the warmth of your voice, shape the tone of electric guitars, add filter sequences to your drums, transform you whole mix. While we’re sure you’ll love using a perfectly realized analog ladder filter on any sound source, we’ve also added some contemporary features to give Mini-Filter the edge when it comes to creative audio processing.
From the sample & hold to the sequencer, Mini-Filter is a true sound designer’s dream for mixing, sound creation, and experimentation. Let’s take a look at the key components of this awesome plugin:
Low Frequency Oscillator
Beyond animating the Cutoff Frequency and Emphasis by the application of a periodic variation that can take different waveforms and synchronized or not with your DAW’s clock, the Mini-Filter LFO also offers a Sample and Hold mode. This one takes a random value and freezes it for a given time according to the Rate setting to generate a rhythmic effect.
Low Pass Filter
It gives you access to the most central parameters of the filter such as the Cutoff Frequency above which the high frequencies will be progressively cut, the Emphasis aka resonance that boost the frequencies around the cutoff frequency. In addition, the Drive parameter will raise the gain of the filter up to add distortion to the signal.
This highly creative modulator lets you accurately set a value up to 8 steps that can control the Cutoff Frequency, the Emphasis and the Rate of the LFO. You will be able to use it in sync with your DAW and to soften the transition from a step to another to radically extend your creative horizon.
It allows the Cutoff Frequency, the Emphasis and the LFO Rate to be modified based on the envelope of the sound source. The sensitivity controls the vertical follow-up while the attack and decay can be used to smooth the follow-up on the time axis. The Mini-Filter Envelope Follower can thus be used for affecting the sound at an audio rate or inversely more subtly to follow broader volume variations.
