3 Filters You’ll Actually Use By ARTURIA Features Advanced Moog & Oberheim Filter Emulation Plugin

Arturia launched today a new range of audio effect plugins. You may recall that last year the french company launched a filter plugin based on the Minimoog Ladder filter. Today, the journey goes further with a new bundle “3 Filters You’ll Actually Use”. This bundle features beside the Mini-Filter two new Oberheim filter emulation plugins with the same concept.

One emulates the iconic SEM Filter which can morph very smoothly through the different filter types, the other emulates the well-known filters from the Matrix-12 Synthesizer from Oberheim. All plugins comes with a modern straightforward designed interface with advanced features like envelopes, LFO, FM possibilities and more.

3 Filters You’ll Actually Use Features 

SEM-Filter:

Perfectly recreated from one of the earliest self-contained analog synths. Arturia updated this state-variable filter with a simple but effective sequencer.

Main Features
  • Virtual recreation of the classic 12dB/oct state variable SEM filter:
    • Mode, cutoff frequency and resonance controls
    • Dry/Wet setting
    • Filter output volume setting
  • Additionnal noise oscillator for feeding the filter with rich spectral content
  • Soft clipping circuit modeling
  • Attack / Hold / Decay envelope
  • Low Frequency oscillator
    • 5 waveforms + Sample and Hold mode
    • Can be synchronized with DAW’s clock
    • Smooth parameter
  • Gate sequencer
    • Program trigs / retrigs for the envelope and LFO to create rythmic content
    • Up to 16 steps
    • Can be synchronized with DAW’s clock
  • Modulation matrix
    • Envelope and LFO as sources
    • 8 destinations for extended sonic possibilities
  • 40 presets from top sound designers
  • State-of-the-art TAE® analog modeling
Mini-Filter

Arturia cracked the code of Dr Moog’s renowned ladder filter, and let you control it with a whole new generation of tools.

Main Features
  • Virtual recreation of a 24dB/oct Low Pass Ladder filter:
    • Drive parameter
    • Cutoff Frequency and Emphasis
    • Dry/Wet setting
    • Output volume setting
  • Low Frequency Oscillator
    • Can be synchronized with DAW’s clock
    • 4 waveforms + Sample and Hold mode
    • Phase parameter
    • Can modulate the Cutoff, Emphasis and Cutoff modulation amount of the Sequencer
  • Step Sequencer
    • Can be synchronized with DAW’s clock
    • Up to 8 steps
    • Smooth parameter
    • Can modulate the Cutoff, Emphasis and the LFO rate
  • Envelope follower
    • Sensitivity parameter (vertical sensitivity)
    • Attack and Decay time parameters
    • Can modulate the Cutoff, Emphasis and the LFO rate
  • 30 presets from top sound designers
  • State-of-the-art TAE® analog modeling
M12-Filter

Modelled on Tom Oberheim’s formidable multi-mode filter found on the Matrix-12, the plugin also features twin filters, mod osc and random generators, hugely customizable mod matrix, and programmable envelopes.

Main Features
  • Virtual recreation of the Matrix 12 multimode filter
    • 2 instances of the Matrix 12 filter within one plugin instance
    • 15 disctincts filter modes available per filter instance
    • Cutoff frequency, resonance, pan and out volume controls for each instance
    • Master cutoff control for controlling both instances’ cutoff at once
    • 4 audio routing configurations
    • Global dry / Wet and output filter controls
  • Random values genrator
    • Can be synchronized with DAW’s clock
  • 3 advanced multi-segments envelopes
    • 2 modes: loop or triggered by audio
    • Synchronized with DAW’s clock
    • Can be used as LFOs, step sequencer or envelopes
    • Predefined presets
  • Modulation oscillator
    • Audio range modulatotion source for parameters frequency modulation
    • 5 waveforms
  • Modulation matrix
    • Envelope, random generator and mod oscillator as sources
    • 8 assignable destinations slots with 22 reachable parameters
  • 40 presets from top sound designers
  • State-of-the-art TAE® analog modeling

SYNTH ANATOMY had the chance to check out the filters in advance. Here is a video where I give an hands-on demo of the new Oberheim filters.

Hands-On Demo

Each filter plugin is now available as a single product for 49€ (instead of 99€) or in the 3 Filter You’ll Actually Use Bundle for 99€ (instead of 199€). Owners of Arturia V Collection, or any other software or hardware instruments are encouraged to log in to their MyArturia accounts on the Arturia website to take advantage of exclusive cross-grade deals.
