Tested by Barry Cleveland Filter ($199 retail/$159 street) is a multi-faceted digital audio plug-in that offers four of the smoothest and most analog-sounding software filters available, multiple modulation sources (including envelope generators, LFOs, rhythm generators, and an envelope follower), four tempo-synchable delays, a versatile Modulation Matrix (for routing control sources to filter parameters), and two rhythm generators. Why should you care? Well, manipulating guitar signals through filters, LFOs, envelope generators, and the like can produce extremely bizarre and/or beautifully strange tonal abberations. In other words, if you want to mangle your guitar into something that’s a singular manifestation of your tortured imagination, a filter processor is one of the coolest ways to craft unique sounds and sound effects (see Joe Gore’s review of the Moogerfooger MF-101 Lowpass Filter in the July ’99 GP for more insights). I tested the VST version of Filter within BIAS Peak 4.21 and the MAS version within MOTU Digital Performer 3.0—both running on a 1GHz Mac G4. At the center of the interface is a dynamic graph with amplitude as its vertical axis and frequency as its horizontal axis.
