In conjunction with the AES Convention in New York City, TC Electronic introduced Filtroid - another new PowerCore exclusive plug-in. With its dual filters and extensive modulation capabilities, Filtroid brings the sound of analog filter banks to the PowerCore platform. Filtroid is expected to ship in November at EUR215 ex. VAT / $249 MSRP.
Filtroid consists of two filters with low-, hi- and band-pass shapes with 12, 18 or 24 db slope characteristics. The filters can be used in series or parallel for the creative control, and external side-chain input provision allows for modulation of the filter from another track.
The modulation capabilities are extensive, including independent LFOs per filter and the envelope follower. Tempo sync ensures that filter movements are always synchronized to the speed of the sequencer, and a distortion unit adds an additional edge to the sound, if desired.
With serial or parallel filter routing, massive modulation options, side chain input, resonance with self-oscillation, envelope follower, distortion and out of phase modulation, PowerCore users have all the tools they need to make the most extreme filter effects.
