i'm interested in this, too.

or how did you guys create this filtered french-kick-drums? in my view, the auto-filter in ableton is useless.......i can't get good results with it.

currently i use a vst-single-knob-filter for good results.......

I saw a video with COSM recently and he mentioned that he uses a formant filter with Live. I don't know the name of the filter though.

I think the video is on dailymotion or youtube.


*** Edit - Got the name wrong COSM was the person I was thinking of ***

COSM uses the MDE-X series (I think that's what they're called) from Korg, and there is a formant in there.

However, I couldn't get this to run on an Intel-Mac, as a cut-down version came with the padKONTROL on CD.

I used MDE-X as a good example as a nice easy to use formant filter, and good for live use, but if your interested in those sounds I highly suggest learning how to make your own by chaining up band pass filters, its a great fun learning curve!

I can post more detailed about how I go about this if anyone is keen.

definatly would rather be up for learning how to make one rather than just being given one which i can't figure out how to adapt.

Post some tips please!

Alllllright! ill see what I can whip up.

Just mucking now actually with how to go about it using racks. I've never really used racks before to be honest :oops: ive just never had the need but after 40 minutes of mucking about im in love. Should be pretty simple! It would be cool if I could do it all with ableton plugs so I can give a file download.

Will get back to you guys

There will be a sweepable 5-band vowel filter in one of our packs coming really soon ;-) It also goes from subtle to absurd quite quickly!
