Arturia Releases “3 Filters You’ll Actually Use,” Based on Iconic Vintage Synthesizers - EMusician
3 Filters You’ll Actually Use Models the Filters from a Moog Minimoog, Oberheim SEM, and Oberheim Matrix-12.

Known for its award-winning virtual instruments modeled on classic synths and keyboards of yesteryear, French audio software and hardware company Arturia used its modeling expertise to isolate iconic synth filters as standalone software plug-ins. This concise collection of three recreated analog filters not only gives DAW users three great sounding effects, but also lets them use these classic filters on any audio source in their software studio.

Musicians, both experienced and aspiring, can easily become frustrated with the dizzying array of plug-ins available these days. With so much choice, it’s often difficult to choose effects that satisfy your creative needs. Arturia has created 3 Filters You’ll Actually Use to give musicians a small, but manageable set of plug-ins that sound fantastic, are based on legendary synth hardware, and include exciting modern features.

Using its True Analog Emulation technology, Arturia analyzed and recreatesd the behavior and response of each original analog filter, separating them from their host synth, making them available as individual preamps. Modeled on, and inspired by the functionality of famous synths from industry legends Bob Moog and Tom Oberheim, this collection brings the iconic sound of their filters to a new generation of music producers and performers, and updates their functionality with contemporary features.
