The Moog Filtatron is a realtime audio filter and effects engine. You can use line/microphone inputs and the built-in sampler as your sound source, run them through a detailed Moog filter, and add filter modulation, delay and overdrive to your taste.
Multi-touch X-Y pads provide highly tweakable performance controls for live use.
Save and email presets, record your own samples, and import/export audio using FTP. You can share audio between the Filatron and other audio apps using AudioCopy and AudioPaste.
The heart of the Filtatron is a four-pole resonant Moog Ladder Filter-modelled after the same filter that gives Moog instruments their classic warm, thick character. Use it to shape the sounds supplied by the on-board oscillator, sampler and line input.
The Pads are an intuitive performance interface giving you hands-on control of all the major Filtatron parameters. Use each pad to control two parameters at once. There will be no stopping your creativity with that much sound control at your fingertips.
Sweeten your sounds with the feature-packed FX module. The Delay has incredible sound quality and can be modulated by its own LFO. Delay time is smoothly interpolated for analogue-style delay time tweaks. Use the Amp controls for tones ranging from warm analogue distortion to extreme clipping.
Explore the exciting array of included loopable samples or use the Sampler to record and play your own unique sounds. You can easily move audio files back and forth between the Filtatron and your computer, and Audio Copy and Audio Paste allows you to share sounds with other compatible apps.
The Filtatron comes loaded with edgy presets that kick-start your sound. From cutting rhythms to ambient drones to out-there effects workouts. Use the handy built-in Email function to send your Filtatron presets to your friends and other band members.
Learn all about the Filtatron with the detailed User Guide. Also included is a handy Glossary of electronic music terminology that will greatly enhance your understanding of the Filtatron and electronic music in general.
I’m slowly getting to grips with the Filtatron – after all, it was only released this morning. If I manage to get anything exciting or useable out of it, I will post it here. Meantime, here’s a proper musician giving it some:
