Tone2 Releases BiFilter2

Tone2 has released BiFilter2, a stereo filter module offering dual multi-mode filters with 47 filter types, 8 additional distortion types, FM, AM, waveshaping and lo-fi effects. BiFIlter2 drastically extends the filter plug-in concept by offering a number of unique features including a precision display that reveals the frequency response of the filter in realtime.


Features:
• 47 filter types:

LP 30dB – A lowpass filter with a 30dB/Octave slope.
LP 12dB – A lowpass filter with a 12dB/Octave slope.
LP Analog – A analogue modeled lowpass filter with self oscillation.
LP Moog – A lowpass filter with a classic ‘Moog Diode Ladder Filter’ type response.
LP Fat – A lowpass filter with very broad resonance.
LP Oct – A lowpass filter with resonance tuned in octave distance from the cutoff point.
LP Elliptic – A ‘brickwall like’ lowpass filter with very steep slope.
HP 30dB – A highpass filter with a 30dB/Octave slope.
HP 12dB – A highpass filter with a 12dB/Octave slope.
HP Elliptic – A ‘brickwall like’ highpass filter with very steep slope.
HP Analog – A analogue modeled highpass filter with self oscillation.
BP 15dB – A bandpass filter with a 15dB/Octave slope.
BP 6dB – A bandpass filter with a 6dB/Octave slope.
BP Analog – A analogue modeled bandpass filter with self oscillation.
BR – A band rejection or notch filter with an adjustable center frequency and slope.
BR Analog – A analogue modeled notch filter with self oscillation.
EQ Low Shelf – A lowpass shelving filter.
EQ Hi Shelf – A highpass shelving filter.
EQ loudness – A loudness filter.
EQ Peak 1 – An equalizing filter with a broad slope.
EQ Peak 2 – An equalizing filter with a tight slope.
EQ Block – cuts all frequnecies below and above the selected range.
VOC IEAOU 1 – A series of vocal formant filters emitted by vowel use in human speech.
VOC IEAOU 2 – A series of vocal formant filters emitted by vowel use in human speech.
VOC A – A vocal formant filter.
VOC – A vocal formant filter.
VOC – A vocal formant filter.
VOC I – A vocal formant filter.
VOC O – A vocal formant filter.
W-Shape – Double parallel-switched bandpass filters.
M-Shape – Serial lowpass and highpass filters, with 2 resonant maxima at the edges of the filter.
Allpass – Does nothing, just changes the phase of the signal.
Phaser – A phasing filter that affects the phase offset of the incoming audio stream.
Comb 2x – A comb filter, with multiple equally spaced resonance peaks.
Comb 3x – A different comb filter, similar to Comb 1.
Comb 5x – A different comb filter, similar to Comb 1.
Resonator – An oscillator which is excited from the input signal.
Diffuser 8x– A 8 step diffuser filter with feedback. Sounds like small room reverb.
Diffuser 32x– A 32 step diffuser filter with feedback. Sounds like large room reverb.
Delay – Delays the input signal by a given ammount.
Resample – Resamples the signal to a lower samplerate.
AM – Amplitude modulatuion.
Formant 2 – Double formant (vocal) filter with 2 resonant maxima.
FM Sine – Frequency modulation with a sine oscillator.
FM Tri – Frequency modulation with a triangle oscillator.
FM Saw – Frequency modulation with a saw oscillator.
FM Square

• 8 distortion types:

Volume – Drive controls the volume of the signal.
Tube Amp – A ‘soft knee’ saturated distortion.
Transistor – An asymetric ‘soft knee’ distortion.
Presence – A ‘soft knee’ saturated distortion with falloff at higher levels.
Hard Clip – A ‘hard knee’ clipping distortion.
Bitcrush – This distortion type reduces the bitrate of the audio to ‘lo-fi’.
Waveshape – This distortion type adds additional harmonics by using round nonlinear amplification of the audio signal.
Pow2 – This distortion type adds additional harmonics by using edged nonlinear amplification of the audio signal. It is similar to exciters.

• High precision, real time frequency response display
• Smooth and click-free knob movements
• “High-end quality” filter algorithms, anti-aliasing, oversampling
• True stereo architecture, works in all sample rates
• Easy-to-use interface
• 100 presets
• MIDI and automation support

Tone2’s BiFilter2 will set you back $49 / €39 and is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows. Mac OS X VST and Audio Unit versions will be available in the future. More information on Tone2 BiFilter2.
