Low Pass Filter

What is a Low Pass Filter   A low pass filter, known as LPF, is essentially a filter that reduces or eliminates the frequencies above the cutoff frequency. It passes low-frequency signals and blocks or impedes, high-frequency signals. In audio applications, this...

High Pass Filter

What is a high pass filter?   In order to put it simply, we could say that the high pass filter is just a filter (low-cut) that attenuates frequencies below the certain cutoff frequency and allows the frequencies above to pass. There are many kinds of high pass...

Wah Wah Filter

The definition for the wah-wah effect, according to Erickson in 1975, is that the effect is produced by periodically bringing in and out of play treble frequencies while a note is sustained. Therefore, the effect is a type of spectral glide, a “modification of...

Overdrive

Distortion confusion   ”Overdrive” is a gain-based effect which people often mistake as a distortion effect. It’s pretty hard to draw the line between the two, especially when it comes to guitar effect pedals. One of the simplest ways to...

Multiband Compressor

  A compressor is an audio tool that helps to alter the dynamic range of a signal by reducing the volume of louder parts or by amplifying quieter parts. It is without a doubt one of the most important tools in the modern audio world. This blog will discuss a very...

Transient Shaper

Transient Shaper, in some cases called transient designer or modulator, is a type of audio processor whose core is designed quite similarly to the compressor. It could be best described as a level-independent dynamic processor. It is similar to compressor and expander...
