One knob for hp lp filter?

Post by ambientidm » Tue Jul 28, 2015 2:43 am

Can anyone help me figure this out? I want one knob to go from sweeping up a hp filter and going the other direction sweeps down a lp with the middle position leaving the track un-effected. Do I need the midi twister with its super knob functions for this?

Yeah I think ill gates has a pretty good one... can't remember how to find it though.

Also there's this tutorial which should give you some ideas:

I have an Ableton rack that does this, you can map it to any midi controller you want:

It's called Twister Filter.

Do you have M4L?
I made one for myself, consisting only of a small M4L-Device (called the double-knobble) with one knob for Hi-Lo-Cutting (midi mappable) and an EQ8 which does the actual filtering. Middle position (64) is unfiltered signal, turning left/right does Hi- respectivly Locut. The double-knobbble can also be used for other effects where you want to control two effects with one knob. It actually is a really really simple and stupid, but totally working and trouble-free soloution.
It uses only one EQ8 (and the M4L device i made) so its quiet cpu-friendly.

I am at work at the moment but if anyone is interested I can post it later with a little explanation so everybody can use it for his own filters and effects.

The great Steve Duda has a free one over at Xfer Records. Sounds just like the Pioneer DJM filter. There are some other great free plugins there too.

Maybe something like this? (Requires an additional button though) : http://4live.me/post/66313253861/two

I have slightly different approach to this, maybe less sweepy and more for layering:
