Noisebud - Filter



Noisebud Filter consists of 4 filters (or 16, depending on how you look upon it), they are switchable between Lo pass, hi pass, band pass and band reject filter. 

The signals from the four filters are wired in a parallel chain. Every filter can be controlled by three different LFOs where one is tempo-synced; one normal and one extremely slow (a sLoFO).
The LFO sections also have something Noisebud call VariFO. It adds another movement to the LFO and makes it less predictable. 

Every filter has an invert button so that you can silence frequencies that collide during heavy LFO movements, this and the VariFO is probably what make Noisebud filter special.

Blue Cat Audio - Gain Suite

 
Blue Cat's Gain Suite

This plug-in suite is a series of gain utilities which let you control the volume of one or several audio tracks in real time. The interest of these plug-ins resides in their particular features:

First, their automation and advanced MIDI control capabilities (the response curve of the MIDI controllers can be fully customized). Used together with one of our analysis tools or a MIDI controller, these plug-ins let you remotely control and automate the gain of each channel of the audio signal.
Another interesting and exclusive feature is the ability to link several instances of the same plug-in: thanks to our unique data sharing technology, you can control the gain of several tracks at the same time, with advanced response curve capabilities. 

The plug-in bundle contains a stereo and a mid/side version for independent control of the left and right or mid and side channels. It can be very useful for stereo widening/narrowing. Additional information about stereo widening with mid/side processing can be found in our M/S processing paper. Last but not least, the skinning capabilities of these plug-ins allow you to customize the way you interact with them.

Features

  • Mono, stereo and mid/side gain.
  • Link several instances of the same plugin and control several plugins from a single user interface with advanced link capabilities.
