True Analog-Sounding VCF Emulation in a Table Top Filter Set Plug-In
The Moog Multimode Filter represents the first truly analog-sounding VCF (voltage controlled filter) emulation made for mixing, performing, creating, or destroying. The Multimode Filter combines the best of Bob Moog’s classic designs with select features from his final Voyager instrument. UA meticulously modeled the analog behavior of the historical 4-pole ladder filter including all of the non-linearities of the original. UA takes this analog marvel to the next level by combining a Lowpass, Bandpass, and Highpass filter in one unit, and allowing Moog’s signature self oscillation and extreme resonance in any of the filter modes.
The UAD Moog Multimode Filter incorporates other features such as a 0 / +20dB gain switch giving an option for the extreme distortion capabilities found at the Minimoog’s external input. There is also an Envelope control with both positive and negative values, plus a simple Smooth/Fast switch to change Envelope response time. Next, the Voyager’s Spacing control is included that detunes two separate hard-panned filters. Also included is a tempo-syncable LFO section that incorporates six wave selections and an LFO phase Offset control (-180º to 180º). Mix blends wet and dry signal, while Output controls the final volume of the instrument. In addition, a Mono/Stereo switch enables the mono summing of any stereo effect, plus Effect/Bypass turns off all effects but leaves the Drive and Output controls enabled. Finally, Step/Track disables/enables filter smoothing, in cases where extreme DAW automation may be required. Also includes the SE low-DSP version.
