A new coloring filter effect
Kilohearts' Nonlinear Filter is the nasty way to sculpt and refine your sounds!
Do you know how Jimi Hendrix got his signature guitar sound?
Or that screechy lead in Block Rockin' Beats, by The Chemical Brothers?
How about the synth melody in Madonna's Like a Virgin?
Believe it or not, Nonlinear Filter.
Alright, maybe not Kilohearts' Nonlinear Filter. But, if you are looking to add some vintage analog twang to your sound, Kilohearts have you covered. Nonlinear Filter offers basic filtering with a variety of flavors to it, ranging from classic analog sounding filtering to more outlandish modes the further down the list you go.
Select between low pass, band pass, high pass and notch filters.
The operating frequency of the filter.
The filter Q setting. High values for Q will make the filter resonate at the cutoff frequency.
Overdrives the filter, which makes the effect of the nonlinear behaviour more prominent.
Selects what flavor of nonlinearity you want. The clean mode has no nonlinearies, and does not color the signal. All other modes distort and color the signal in different ways to some extent.
This plug-in is a "Snapin". That means you can use it as a regular VST/AU plug-in, or you can use it with the Snapin hosts Snap Heap and Multipass, and Phase Plant where you can combine effects in amazing ways.
The Kilohearts Snapin framework is the easiest, most creative, sound design workflow you have ever come across. This free bundle contains Snap Heap, a basic snapin host plug-in, alongside 5 useful snapins.
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.
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!
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.
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, multi band 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!
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.
Phase Plant is the crowning achievement of the snapin eco-system that Kilohearts have been developing since the release of Multipass in 2015. Introducing, a truly limitless hybrid synthesizer building on a modular system of generators, modulators, and effects from the acclaimed Kilohearts snapin range of plug-ins. Endless possibilities for creative sound design.
