FabFilter Volcano VSTi v1.20 | Win32 | Size: 3.98 MB
FabFilter Volcano is a filter plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X with FabFilter's state-of-the-art filter technology. Two multimode filters with seven different filter characteristics provide up to 63 different filter types. Two LFOs, one EG, and an interactive filter display ensure endless modulation and tweaking possibilities.
Two independent multimode filters provide low-pass, high-pass, and band-pass responses with 12/24/48 dB/octave slopes.
Both filters feature seven different high-quality filter characteristics that define the unique sound and overdrive of the filter. They range from smooth filters with moderate overdrive to raw, self-oscillating over-the-top madness! In combination with the response and slope settings, FabFilter Volcano offers up to 63 different filter types.
With the panning setting on both filters, you can adjust the filter balance on the left and right audio channels, which creates stereo effects without phase problems.
The frequency, peak, and panning settings can be modulated in any way imaginable with the two MIDI triggered LFOs and the MIDI/Audio triggered envelope generator. The LFOs have triangle and square wave forms and can be synchronized to the host tempo in normal, dotted, or triplets mode.??? ???
Interactive filter display
Tweak the filters with FabFilter Volcano's interactive filter display that shows both filter curves and lets you drag them around. You can adjust them separately or both at the same time. The user interface is easy to use with large knobs that can be dragged up and down as well as turned around for precise adjustments.
FabFilter Volcano works with any MIDI keyboard or controller. Within minutes, you can associate each of Volcano's parameters with any MIDI controller number, just by turning knobs in the user interface and on the controller.
Smart Parameter Interpolation
Changes to any of FabFilter Volcano's parameters are interpolated by smart algorithms, ensuring both responsiveness and smooth transitions. There are no annoying digital clicks and zipper effects, and even MIDI controller changes are handled perfectly smooth.
FabFilter Volcano comes with a standard set of dozens of great presets and enables you to create and save your own presets. You can share your sounds with other users and the preset files are the same on Windows and Mac OS X.
Sample accuracy and high sample rates
Naturally, the FabFilter Volcano plug-in handles all parameter changes at sample accuracy and it can be used with arbitrary sample rates. All parameters are fully automatable within the plug-in host or with MIDI controller messages. Altivec and SSE optimization ensures that FabFilter Volcano uses as little processing time as possible without compromising sound quality.
