Slice EQ

A truly modern parametric equalizer, Slice EQ cuts, or enhances, frequencies with surgical precision using razor sharp digital filters up to 96 dB/oct.

Slice EQ is an advanced parametric equalizer, with great modulation potential. Especially when combined with Snap Heap

Slice EQ offers you everything you need to create mathematically perfect filter combinations to get your music exactly where you want it to go.

  • Perfect sound – Slice EQ won’t let anyone down soundwise. Using top of the line, digitally clean filters, it will give you a crisp result every time.
  • Workspace layout – With a recognisable workspace layout, the Slice EQ user interface makes sure you will quickly find your way to all the features.
  • Really fast! – All Kilohearts plugins get the job done quickly. That way you can stack them high without worrying about performance issues.
  • Click away! – By default, Slice EQ will help you out with a context aware filter creation tool. Depending on where on the filter curve you click, you can create the most common filter type for that frequency range.
  • All the filters – If you need a specific filter, the Edit Tool can be set to create any of six different filter types that will cover your every need.
  • Compare your work – Using other sounds or songs as a reference has never been easier. Choose from the factory profiles or create your own from any WAV file. You can also use a sidechain channel as a reference.
  • Tired ears? – When EQing, you can sometimes start having problems determining if you are actually making things better or worse. Use the A / B comparison tool to make your way forward.
  • EQ in stereo – Are you used to working in Left/Right, or Mid/Side? Either way, Slice EQ presents your filters in a way that is intuitively understandable at a glance.
  • Even more precision – Zoom and pan the workspace anyway you like to get the best view of what you are doing. You can also zoom and pan with the mouse wheel and click and drag on the axis labels.

  • More of a feeling – Carve EQ excels at letting you smoothly work with sections of the spectrum through the awesome “Sculpt tool” that adds a peak that you can drag around and modify easily.
  • Compare your work – Using others sounds or songs as a reference has never been easier. Choose from the factory profiles or create your own from any WAV file. You can also use a sidechain channel as a reference.
  • Match EQ – Do you like that special Taylor Swift sound, or the whole Surrender album by The Chemical Brothers? Simply steal the mastering of any audio and let Carve EQ apply it to your song in seconds.
  • Tired ears? – When EQing, you can sometimes start having problems determining if you are actually making things better or worse. Use the A/B comparison tool to make your way forward.
  • EQ in stereo – Are you used to working in Left/Right, or Mid/Side?

Either way, Carve EQ presents your work in a way that is intuitively understandable at a glance.

3 Band EQ

Kilohearts’ filters are always awesome, and stacking them together to create a quick 3-band EQ just made them even easier to use.

3-band EQ will get you surprisingly far when it comes to shaping your sound, or your entire song. By dragging the split frequencies around it feels like much more than a standard 3-band equalizer.

  • Low – Set the gain of the low frequencies.
  • Mid– Set the gain of the frequencies in between the low and high threshold.
  • High – Set the gain of the high frequencies.
  • Spectrum split lines – Drag the lines to set the low and high frequency thresholds.
  • Settings panel – Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin there is a small arrow in the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful.
  • Enabled checkbox – The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.
  • Resize handle – The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts’ plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using 3-Band EQ as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.)

Limiter

Whether you want to crank the last drops of gain out of your track or just want to control a few loud peaks, a Limiter can be the weapon of choice.

By looking a little bit into the future, a limiter can make sure your signal never goes louder than you want it to without distorting or destroying transients. Even with the knob turned to 11.

  • In gain knob – Gain to apply to the input signal before limiting.
  • Out gain knob – Gain to apply to the input signal after limiting.
  • Threshold knob – The maximum allowed volume.
  • Release knob – The release adjusts how quickly the limiter returns the volume back to normal after limiting it due to a peak in the input volume.
  • VU Meter – Displays the current input level, the selected threshold, and the limiter’s current attenuation.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox
  • Resize handle

Compressor

Someone somewhere once said that there are 931 compressor plugins in the world. Well, now there’s 932!

A compressor will even out the audio volume by lowering the volume when the signal is loud. This helps shape the dynamics of the sound both at the initial attack and the sustain tail. Each compressor has their own flavor, and the kHs Compressor tastes sweet.

  • Attack knob – The attack time is the time it takes to lower the volume when the input volume is over the threshold.
  • Release knob – The release time is the time it takes to return the volume to normal when the input volume is under the threshold.
  • Mode – In RMS mode the compressor will measure the volume using the root mean square method, which gives an accurate measurement of audio power. In peak mode the compressor will follow the peaks in the audio waveform, which makes it more responsive to transients.
  • Ratio knob – The ratio decides how much the compressor will reduce the audio volume. At 1:2, for example, the volume will be lowered until it is halfway between the input volume and the threshold.
  • Threshold knob – The threshold for when the compressor will start lowering the volume.
  • Makeup knob – The makeup gain will increase the volume of the output signal to compensate for the loss in overall volume that the compressor causes.
  • VU Meter – Displays the current input level, the selected threshold, and the compressor’s current attenuation.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Transient Shape

When you want to carefully tweak the punch of your snare, the ricki-ticki-ticking of your hi-hats or the snappiness of a synth line, Transient Shaper is the right tool for the job.

Using a compressor is the most common way of adjusting the dynamics of a sound, but sometimes this can be a bit cumbersome.

This is where Transient Shaper shines, giving you very direct control over the character of both the attack and sustaining sections of the sound in a way that’s simple to understand and tweak.

  • Attack – The amount of amplification or attenuation of the transient.
  • Pump – The amount of attenuation directly after the transient, emphasizing the transient without increasing the level.
  • Sustain – The amount of amplification or attenuation of the sustained sound.
  • Speed – Higher values result in snappier transient modification, and lower values result in smoother curves.
  • Clip – When enabled, the output signal is clipped to 0dB.
  • Sidechain – When enabled, transients are detected based on a secondary input, but the effect is applied to the main input.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Gain

Sound loud? Make softer. Sound quiet? Make louder.

  • Gain display – Set how much to increase or decrease the volume, in decibels.
  • VU Meter – Displays the current output level on the left and right channels.

Filter

Sometimes in life, sound comes with frequencies you don’t like. So why not cut them out?

kHs Filter is a resonant filter with 7 modes, swiftly getting rid of frequencies you don’t like or enhancing frequencies you do.

  • Type – The type of filter. Select between low pass, band pass, high pass, notch, low shelf, peak and high shelf filters.
  • Cutoff knob – The operating frequency of the filter. In a low-pass filter this is the frequency where the signal is reduced by 3dB.
  • Q knob – The filter Q setting. High values for Q will make the filter resonate at the cutoff frequency.
  • Gain – The gain value for the low shelf, peak and high shelf filter types.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox
  • Resize handle

Comb Filter

The Comb Filter hollows out the sound by carving out frequencies at each multiple of the base frequency, like the teeth of a comb.

The Comb Filter will mix the signal with a delayed version of itself, creating a filter with repeated troughs and peaks across the spectrum.

It’s also possible to process left and right differently in a way that not only gives a wide stereo effect, but also collapses right back to the original signal when mixed to mono. Nifty!

  • Cutoff display – Cutoff setting for the filter, the distance between each peak.
  • Polarity – The polarity setting swaps troughs for peaks and vice versa, with the plus setting having a peak at 0 Hz, and the minus setting a trough at 0 Hz.
  • Stereo – The stereo setting flips the polarity setting for the right channel, allowing the the comb filter to be used for mono compatible stereo widening.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox
  • Resize handle

Formant Filter

If your music doesn’t get enough “Aahs” and “Oohs”, maybe you should try putting them into the actual music? Formant Filter shapes the sound in a similar way to how the vocal tract works, leading to vowel-esque sounds. So, channel your inner robo-Tarzan.

Aaaaoooeoeeeoeeeee!

The Formant Filter will boost two frequencies to mimic the sounds of different vowels.

  • Vowel Selector – Selects two frequencies to boost. We’ve put the phonetic symbols of some common vowel sounds on the selection pane. (Honestly that doesn’t help much. I have no idea how ɤ sounds anyway). Applying an LFO modulation to either axis of the pane can give some nice human-esque qualities to your sound.
  • Q knob – Adjust how powerful and narrow the frequency boost is.
  • Lows – Allow low frequencies through the filter.
  • Highs – Allow high frequencies through the filter.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox
  • Resize handle

Ladder Filter

When you’re looking for a bit of that vintage feel, Ladder filter will twist your basses into squelching retro-licks akin to those of the Moog or the 303.

Crank the drive up an extra notch and it will even function as a warm distortion. Mmm, smooth.

The Ladder Filter simulates low pass filters found in classic hardware synths.

  • Cutoff knob – The filter cutoff frequency.
  • Resonance knob – The filter resonance setting. High values will make the filter resonate at the cutoff frequency.
  • Topology – Selects between transistor ladder and diode ladder topology. The diode ladder has a slightly more gentle rolloff after the cutoff frequency. The two topologies also behave differently when saturation is enabled.
  • Saturate – Simulates saturation of electronic components in the filter.
  • Drive knob – Simulates overdrive of the components. Only available in “Saturate” mode.
  • Bias knob – Simulates bias voltage over the components. Only available in “Saturate” mode.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Disperser

Have you ever wanted to rotate the phases of your signal to create frequency sweeps? Funny, neither had we, but then we tried it and were blown away!

Disperser smears high energy transients through space and time without modifying the gain of the sound.

The result is a different take on transient shaping or, when used at extreme settings, an effect capable of shaping the sounds in ways you didn’t know you wanted to do.

Boomy kicks, snappy hihats, synthetic wet basses or just a sweet utility to shape your signal’s peaks and crest factor. The choice is yours!

Faturator

Grit, oomph, fatness, raw, color, or just that certain something. Sometimes your sounds need a shovel of dirt. Faturator is standing ready to tear whatever you throw at it apart violently, and then gently (but firmly) put it back together fatter and rawer than ever.

Faturator can do everything from adding subtle and warm gritty character to your sounds to slam them into a wall of heavy saturation and digital fuzz. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and work its wonders on it regardless of input gain.

For the heck of it, it can also color the input to emphasize a specific tone of the sound, or throw some stereo width into the mix. Everything to give you a fast and easy way of making any input come alive.

Bitcrush

When nostaliga hits, Bitcrush can bring you back to the digital hardware of times past. It simulates the audio being played back using a low quality sampler with limited sample rate and bit depth. Mm, crunchy.

The Bitcrush can be used to create distorting effects that sound like that of scraping analog radio, or inherently lo-fi sound sources, like old video games.

  • Rate display – Down sample the signal to a minimum of 200 Hz.
  • Bits knob – Quantize the amplitude of each sample of the signal. A lower value will result in a more distorted sound.
  • ADC Q knob – Quality of the analog-to-digital conversion. A lower value will add dissonant aliasing in the low frequencies.
  • DAC Q knob – Quality of the digital-to-analog conversion. A lower value will add dissonant aliasing in the high frequencies.
  • Dither knob – Adds noise to the signal in order to reduce distortion caused by quantization.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

Distortion

Ever since mankind invented music, there has been a desire to make it heavier. Distortion can take your sound from zero to sword wielding hero in seconds.

5 different distortion shapes are available to add a tinge of edge or rip things apart. In stereo, if that’s what you’re into.

  • Drive knob – The drive setting will boost the input signal, causing a heavier distortion.
  • Bias knob – The bias will add a DC offset to the signal before distorting. Adding some bias can prevent the distorted audio from sounding hollow and uninteresting.
  • Spread knob – The spread will add a different amount of bias to the left and right channels. This can give some nice and subtle stereo widening.
  • Type – The flavor of distortion. Select between overdrive, saturate, foldback, sine and hard clip.
  • Dynamics –  Turn up this knob to preserve the dynamics of the input.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel

Phaser

Beam me up, Scotty! No matter if you set the knob to stun or kill, Phaser can spice up your life with twirly frequency sweeps.

The Phaser will filter the input signal, creating a series of moving peaks and troughs in the audio spectrum.

Pretty much all the bad things with signal phase issues, but turned into an effect and labeled “cool”.

  • Order knob – A higher order setting will increase the order of the filters used by the phaser, creating a more pronounced effect with more peaks and troughs.
  • Cutoff knob – Sets the cutoff of the filters in the phaser, moving the peaks and troughs in the audio spectrum.
  • Depth knob – Adjusts the depth of modulation of the cutoff.
  • Rate knob – Adjusts the rate of modulation of the cutoff.
  • Spread knob – Adds a phase offset for the cutoff modulation between the left and right channels, for a stereo widening effect.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Resonator

Found a frequency that you really really like? Want it to hang in there for just a little bit longer? Let it ring in the new year with Resonator.

Specific frequency harmonics in the input sound are enhanced and propagated, giving you fine control over the sustain of a tone.

  • Pitch display – The frequency at which to resonate.
  • Decay knob – Sets how long it takes for the resonance to ring out after the input goes silent.
  • Intensity knob – Adjusts how much the resonance amplifies the input signal.
  • Timbre – Switches between two different harmonic series for the resonance. Choose between all harmonics (saw tooth wave) or odd harmonics (square wave).
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Ring Mod

A ring modulator gets its name from the way the original analog schematic used a ring of diodes to multiply two signals together. Honestly, the schematics is more of a square, but who cares when you can trash your sound beyond recognition in both pleasant and horrible ways?

The kHs Ring Mod uses either an internal sine/noise generator or a secondary input as the second signal in the modulation, and allows for versatile transformation of the modulating signal.

  • Bias knob – Amount of positive bias to add to the secondary input.
  • Rectify knob – Amount of positive or negative rectification to apply to the secondary input.
  • Frequency knob – The base frequency of the internal oscillator or filter cutoff for the internal noise generator.
  • Spread knob – Shifts the frequency of the internal generator slightly, for left and right channels to achieve a stereo effect.
  • Modulator – Selects the secondary input.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Phase Distortion

Are you tired of only warping signal amplitude like a pleb? Phase Distortion is here to deliver phase melting mayhem!

Traditionally, most distortion units overdrive and shape the amplitude of a signal in various ways to generate a rougher sound.

Phase Distortion instead lets the signal modulate the phase of itself, essentially resulting in something similar to feedback FM. This way you can add that FM touch to any sound, to get a sweet 80’s vibe or a filthy dubstep bass.

Will you use your newfound power for good or for evil?

  • Drive – Controls the amount of distortion.
  • Normalize – Normalizes the signal, making the effect insensitive to input gain.
  • Tone – Filters the modulation to reduce high frequency noise.
  • Bias – Adds a constant phase offset to all harmonics.
  • Spread – Spreads phase offset for left and right channels for a stereo effect.
  • Mix – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel

Chorus

The Chorus enhances the stereo effect and presence of a sound by mixing it with delayed versions of itself. It’s like your own personal choir!

  • Delay knob – The average delay for the delayed voices.
  • Rate knob – The frequency of how fast to vary the delay.
  • Depth knob – How much to vary the delay.
  • Spread knob – Stereo width of the effect. A lower value will go towards a mono output.

Delay

While large echoing cavernous chambers seldom are the first pick for a good acoustic space, Delay effects have been ubiquitous in sound processing for a long time.

  • Delay display – The amount of time before the delayed sound starts playing.
  • Sync Mode – When sync is enabled the delay time will be synchronized to the song tempo.
  • Feedback knob – The feedback setting will cause the delayed sound to feedback into the delay. This will create an exponentially decaying echo.
  • Pan knob – Adjust the panning of the delayed sound.
  • Ping-Pong – Swaps the left and the right channel of the delayed sound when it is fed back into the delay.
  • Duck knob – When duck is turned up, the output volume from the delay will automatically be lowered when the input volume is high.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Stereo

The Stereo snapin can adjust the stereo width and panning. It also displays the current balance and channel correlation visually.

  • Width knob – Adjusts the stereo width. The input audio must have at least a little stereo information for this knob to do anything.
  • Pan knob – Adjusts the panning.
  • Mid knob – Controls how much of the non-stereo content to let through.
  • Stereo Meter – Displays the current balance and channel correlation. When the meter moves into the red area the correlation is less than zero, which can cause problems with mono compatibility.
  • Settings panel
  • Enabled checkbox

Haas

Panning sound is key in mixing and sound placement, but amplitude is only part of how humans determine the direction of sound.

The Haas effect targets another mechanism that detects small differences in time between left and right to position sound.

The HAAS effect will widen the stereo of the audio by delaying the left or the right channel slightly.

Bottom line, it brings stereo width to sounds where there previously was none. Simple as that.

  • Channel – Which channel to delay.
  • Delay knob – The delay time.

Reverb

Reverbs, simulating the millions of tiny echoes that naturally bounce off the walls in a room, have become an central part in glueing together sounds in a song. There are likely few tracks today that don’t contain reverb in any form.

The kHs Reverb is a simple but powerful reverb, which helps you to quickly tune in the character you want. It adds the sense of space to any sound by emulating the sound bouncing off the walls in a physical room.

  • Decay knob – The reverberation time, i.e. the time it takes for the reverb to go silent after sound has passed through it.
  • Dampen knob – Adds damping to high frequencies so that they decay faster than low frequencies.
  • Size knob – Adjust the size of the virtual room that the reverb simulates. Ranges from closet to church.
  • Width knob – Adjusts the stereo width of the reverb. At 100%, the left and right channels are completely uncorrelated in the wet sound.
  • Early knob – Adjusts the balance between early and late reflections. A higher value will give a brighter and more responsive reverb.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

The world of anthem trance lies at your feet!

  • Pattern Select – Switches between the eight different pattern slots.
  • Pattern Editor – Edits the current pattern. Click to toggle steps on or off, click and drag to tie steps together.
  • Length display – The length of the current pattern.
  • Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release knobs – These knobs control the ADSR envelope which is applied to your sound, using the specified pattern.
  • Resolution – Length of one step in the sequencer.

Gate

Not all sound is created alike, and sometimes you want to just leave it at the Gate. Quickly cut out low hum and noise from the signal, cut reverb tails short or exaggerate the dynamics in a beat. The possibilities are… maybe not endless, but should cover your gating needs!

kHs Gate has simple but powerful controls for tuning in the desired effect, and can easily be driven by an external sidechain signal. The gate can also be flipped around to make a signal duck under another.

  • Attack knob – The attack time is the time it takes for the gate to fully open when the input volume is over the threshold.
  • Hold knob – The hold time is the minimum time the gate will stay open.
  • Release knob – The release time is the time it takes the gate to fully close when the input volume is under the threshold.
  • Threshold knob – The volume threshold for when the gate will open.
  • Tolerance knob – A hysteresis range requiring the volume to drop a set amount of dB under the threshold before closing.
  • Range knob – The amount to attenuate the signal when the gate is closed.
  • Look-ahead – When enabled, a 5ms look-ahead will be used, allowing transients through at the cost of latency.
  • Flip – When flipped, the gate will act in reverse, attenuating the signal when the gate is open.
  • VU Meter – Displays the current input level, the selected threshold and tolerance, and the gate’s current state.
  • Sidechain – When you select another sound source in the sidechain drop-down, the plugin uses that source for determining the behaviour of the plugin instead, it still effects the main sound source. This is useful for lowering a lead sound whenever the kick hits.

Frequency Shifter

Do you ever think to yourself: “Screw harmonics!”? Well, ok, probably not. But let’s do it anyway!

Frequency shifter will shift all the frequencies in the input signal up or down by a certain amount. This kind of shifting will ruin the harmonic content of the input signal, making it sound dissonant. Mmm… Dissonance…

Pitch Shifter

Are you out of tune? Do you want to be? Either way, pitch shifter uses grain delay to bring the pitch where you want it to be. Or at least somewhere else from where it is already.

The Pitch Shifter will adjust the pitch of the input signal up or down.

  • Pitch display – How much to adjust the pitch, in semitones.
  • Jitter knob – How much randomness to add to the pitch. A high jitter setting can give a unison-like effect. This is only available when Correlate is off.
  • Grain Size knob – During processing, the pitch shifter chops up the audio into small snippets called grains. This setting adjusts the length of the grains, which can influence the sound.
  • Mix knob – The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
  • Correlate – Enables a more advanced algorithm resulting in a more clear effect for many inputs. Be careful though as it might have problems with complex pads and textures.

Reverser

Remember in The Ring when Samara kind of walks backwards but still towards you and it’s all scary and weird? This is not really like that.

However, kHs Reverser does delay and reverse sections of the input sound resulting in anything from hauntingly eerie textures to reverse percussion hits.

  • Delay display – The amount of time before the delayed sound starts playing. This will be expressed in milliseconds or as part of a beat, depending on the Unit setting.
  • Delay time unit – When Unit is set to ‘Sync’, the delay time will be synchronized to the song tempo.
  • Crossfade knob – Time to ramp in/out the reversed audio to avoid any clicks and pops, in percent of the reversed section length.

Snap Heap

The Kilohearts Snapin framework is the easiest, most creative, sound design workflow you have ever come across.

Wha Wha What’s it all about?

Managing effects is something that’s possible in pretty much every digital audio workstation out there, but managing effect chains can be cumbersome and tedious. With Snap Heap, managing complex effect systems is super simple and nothing stands between your creativity and the speaker cones.

Fast lane to success

Snap Heap is based around up to 4 routable lanes of modular “snapin” effects. Each lane can contain any number of snapins, and have individual gain, panning and dry/wet mixing. You can also move things around easily using state of the art technology from the future of 1984 called “drag and drop”.

Modulation station

While adding four filters, a frequency shifter and a stereo width modifier can be interesting in itself, adding four filters with sweeping cutoff retriggered by audio threshold, a frequency shifter bound to the MIDI note and stereo width scaled by the input RMS can be… Well, probably strange. But it may be amazing, and trying it out is just a couple of clicks away. Try it!

Kilohearts are serial about parallelizing

Sometimes you want effects to run in series, and sometimes you want them to run in parallel. In Snap Heap, switching between the two is as easy as the push of a button. Clicking the route button between two lanes links them together in parallel mode, running the same audio through both before mixing them together. Want all four lanes to go in parallel, or have two parallel with pre and post FX, or just about anything else? The choice is yours!

You have to focus, Trinity

When you’re tweaking a specific effect in the chain, the other effects involved can sometimes make it hard to properly hear what’s going on. Mute or solo effect lanes, to quickly home in on what you’re doing. Snap Heap will take care of sorting out the routing so you hear just what you want to hear.

Honey, I’m 4 ms late

Don’t worry about latency. No matter how you route things or what effects you add, Snap Heap makes sure everything is as in-sync as they can be to make sure all modulation aligns properly and to avoid phasing issues.

What’s a snapin?

Well, snapins are regular old VST/AU plugins that you can use for a multitude of purposes. They come in a bunch of different flavors and we create more all the time. The thing is that they also work as modular effect pieces that you can combine in our snapin host plugins, as you can see above. Nifty!

Multipass

Let’s go splitsies!

When adding effects to a sound, it’s not uncommon to want to apply these effects to just a certain part of the sound. For example, you might not want a complex chorus to affect your bass too much, or a hard distortion to totally fry your high end. Either way, multiband processing adds a dimension to effect chains that really opens up a new world of options in sound design. Multipass helps you with this, allowing you to split the input sound into up to 5 easily tweakable frequency bands and applying unlimited number of effects to each band. Pitch shifted auto pan with a filtered chorus delay distortion? Coming right up!

Time to phase the music

Band splitting comes with a bit of a price. It’s unavoidable (without adding latency) to mess a bit with the phase of the sound. Usually this is not a problem, but when chaining multiple multiband effects, this can add up to a lot of phase distortion. In Multipass, the band splitting is only done once no matter how many effects you add, leaving the phase as minimally harmed as possible. It also sorts out dry/wet mixing of effect lanes properly without phasing where possible. Parallel multiband compression, here we come!

Modulation station

While adding four filters, a frequency shifter and a stereo width modifier can be interesting in itself, adding four filters with sweeping cutoff retriggered by audio threshold, a frequency shifter bound to the MIDI note and stereo width scaled by the input RMS can be… Well, probably strange. But it may be amazing, and trying it out is just a couple of clicks away. Try it!

You have to focus, Trinity

When you’re tweaking a specific frequency band, the other bands and effects involved can sometimes make it hard to properly hear what’s going on. Mute or solo effect lanes to quickly home in on what you’re doing. And if you automate it, it can even be an effect in itself!

Honey, I’m 4 ms late

Don’t worry about latency. No matter how you route things or what effects you add, Multipass makes sure everything is as in-sync as they can be to make sure all modulation aligns properly and to avoid phasing issues.
