A solid foundation

When solid or natural sounding bass is a requirement in your recording projects, Monofilter provides the foundation for real power and definition. Bring transparent solidity to your bass; sharpen, define and align for the tightest mix.

Monofilter defines the centre of your bass, so easily lost through stereo effects processing, synth sound generation, unwanted phase inconsistencies and live recording microphone bleed. Market-leading features give accurate control over stereo spread, transition and phase alignment, with precise visual feedback in a tactile interface that lets you grab the applied stereo envelope and manipulate it directly – without using abstract parameters and knobs.

Trusted by producers

With presets for every situation and intuitive controls for fine tuning to perfection, Monofilter anchors your bass with ease, while retaining the perceived spatial characteristics of the original sound.

Detailed control

Monofilter offers powerful fine-tuning of your low end sounds and their interaction with higher frequencies. The plug-in’s highly tweakable parameters include a high pass filter, plus independent width control of user-defined high and low frequencies.

These width controls range from completely mono at their minimum point, to completely unchanged at their maximum. The changes are clearly displayed in an easily intuitive stereo width envelope.

Automatic phase alignment

Stereo effects which use phase shifting can cause cancellations and superpositions of certain frequencies when played back in mono. Monofilter includes a Phase control which can correct phase imbalance below its threshold frequency by adjusting the phase of the L and R components being summed.

This function has an auto mode which can be especially useful for input signals with a dynamic phase shift.

If the intended playback medium is known, then Monofilter can be adjusted to make full use of the available headroom and optimised to take into account the low frequency handling available.
