Auto-filter, More filter modes & more

Auto-filter has a great interface but is starting to sound stale in the sound department. (personally I always thought the bp filter was a little too muddy)
I would love to have more filter modes. I still end up processing samples in Buzz because of the color filter series of plugins.
Here are some ideas:

-Peak EQ 1
-Peak EQ 2
-Neg Peak EQ 1
-Neg Peak EQ 2
-Formants (ah, oh, e, i, oo, guitar, cello, cabinet, etc)
-Ring mod
-Comb delay filter (short ones and long ones; feedback is Q)
-Hollow sounding filters
-Metallic sounding filters

And what about having two filter modes to morph between with an LFO?
What about different knee shapes for the envelope? The shape isn't always perfect for that "filtered drum" sound.

I like your ideas a lot, and this one is one that I have been wanting myself.

Tone2 Bi-Filter Free with its 45 filter types and 7 distortion types will have to do for now though ;)

Also a way better envelope control. The attack phase is sooooo short!

This would be such a useful effect (especially with side chain trigger) if I had a proper ASDR envelope for it.

+1 here too inc sidechainability.

While I'm on the subject, why is it we never (?) seem to see 18db filters? All hardware I'm familliar with that use them seem to be highly revered for their filters, EMS for example.

The ability to overdrive it would be most welcome too.

I'd also like to see a more analog-like, self resonating mode for auto filter. I can always get this from plugins, of course, but the filter is a pretty fundamental effect so improving it would make a big difference.

live is really lacking in this department.

I personally think, Autofilter should have all the Filters from Anlaog, Operator, Sampler etc.!
