Mackie Filter Machine

Model: Filter Machine
Intuitive, powerful, sweeping filter effects

Finally, there is an easy and intuitive way to achieve powerful, sweeping filter effects using Acuma's classic, analog styled, 4-pole filtering plugin for the Mackie D8B. Utilizing stereo input and output paths, Filter Machine's large display field enables you to easily drag and drop any of the 16 filters in real time to simultaneously adjust Frequency and Output Pan.

Select from the graphic editing sliders to adjust Pan Modulation, Frequency Modulation, and 4th order High and Low pass filtering. Link left and right filters together into stereo pairs or fine tune the parameters further by using 2 LFO blocks that incorporate preset waveforms and envelope followers with adjustable rate, depth, volume and phase.

Dial in the beat of the music by selecting the BPM, or tapping the tempo in real time, and quantize the LFO rates to the nearest interval selecting from note, whole note, triplet, etc. All of the filter rates snap to the correct interval with just a click of your mouse. And of course, all Filter Machine's parameters are automated through the D8B's automation engine and can be stored or recalled as a preset.

  • Large Visual Screen is an easy graphic tool that lets you immediately visualize any selected filter and its parameters.

  • Drag and Drop individual or linked filters quickly to adjust Frequency and Pan.

  • Filter Field shows filters that are selected left and right using highly visible red and green balls.

  • 8 Stereo Filters (left and right) for a total of 16 individual filters, with individual parameters that control Output level, Pan Modulation,

  • Frequency Modulation, High Pass and Low Pass filters, Tempo and Attack.

  • Global Parameter Ganging lets you adjust level, pan modulation and frequency modulation with one master control.

  • Global Tap Tempo and Attack lets you fine-tune timing for just the right groove.

  • High and Low Pass Filters are each 4th order with frequency adjustments in approximately 1/12-octave steps.

  • Save and Recall Presets instantly or pick from a wide variety of factory settings.
