FilterFreak from Sound Toys is a virtual analog filter for Avid Pro Tools HD systems, but also includes Audio Units and VST native format versions. Designed to sound "fat" and "warm", the plug-in can emulate envelope followers like the Mutron, perform classic synthesizer style reshaping with the ADSR, and deliver big resonant LFO sweeps like the Sherman Filterbank, as well as the classic sound of the old Morley WahWah pedals. It even features two flavors of the old Sci-Fi sample and hold sound.
In addition to emulating the classics, the plug-in adds software functionality, such as MIDI sync and a large preset library. The Rhythm Mode allows the user to create custom patterns that lock to MIDI. Grab the Groove knob and use swing or shuffle to drop it in the pocket. Flip the MIDI switch, select 1/4 notes and a sine wave, and create instant auto wah.
Emulations of different filter types can be selected to get a wide range of classic sounds. The included FilterFreak2 allows for running two analog filters in series or parallel. Each filter can function in low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, or band-reject mode, and can be setup as 2, 4, 6, or 8 pole filters.
