The Filtermate was built as a Rhythmic Filter module, it is designed for making automated or non-automated filter processing to any given audio material that is fed into it with just the minimum of controllers.

It can almost instantly animate your tracks in a way that could make it quite an indispensable tool in your virtual studio. Basically it consists on a Clock driver that animates an Lfo (Low frequency oscillator) which is coupled to a multimode filter and a mixer, a design very often found in the filter section of many vintage synthesizers (with some extra tweaks here and there), but this time as an independent plugin for you to tweak at your own will.

The Filtermate is intended to be used as a Stereo insert plugin, if however the plugin is inserted in a mono track it will be processed into only one side of the audio channels thus making the Phase - R function unnoticeable.

It is fully automatable and has the ability to store 64 presets. It ships with a few already pre programmed ones that will show what its all about and may be the starting point to your individual creations.

I have given this filter a whirl, for over the last year... Probably the best free random filter for my style and genre, avant garde electronica. I like in particular because of the vintage type of flow, bringing that vintage feel to my tracks. It's a little rough to work with for beginners, but that is a good thing, great training.
