Musical High Pass Filters

Postby ryancost » Sun Apr 10, 2016 4:23 pm

Hi all,
I do a lot of acoustic music, so I find HPFs really useful. Been exploring Nebula third party HPFs. My favorites so far are Cupwise Baltec, AO's Mojo Filter, the free NTP one (from Hopsing on these forums, its fantastic), and the AITB Fate one. Any other recommendations for musical HPFs from third parties?
Thanks!

Try AlexB's Ely X program - it has sweepable high and low pass filters with adjustable resonance.

The whole rest of the EQ sounds fantastic too... it's a great EQ for transparent mid and high boosting on acoustic instruments.

Tim P has a 31102 eq which has a HPF (with fixed steps though). It works well, and adds some very sweet N style mojo which really suits acoustic.

There is the MS10 filter from Tim Petherick that i like a lot. With liquidity up, I obtain good sweep for creative application ; the low pass is tasty, not really transparent.

edit : hum indeed it's only a lowpass. No high pass sorry :arrow:

Awesome, thanks for the suggestions! ElyX demo is very impressive, didn't realize it had HPF so now at the top of the list. Don't have any TimP stuff so going to get one or more of those suggested. Saving up for Amethyst!

Hi ryancost,

Just a personal opinion, haven't tried Ely-X. I also work on acoustic music most of the time and I'm loving Tim Petherick Cal*** C1061 Filter for almost everything. The EQ is also very special (lovely clean character), but that's another topic.

I'll try Ely-X one of these days, for sure.

Definitely give ELY a try. The DEMO preset only hints at its ability, but still left my questioning whether I needed yet another EQ.

The slope in the Ely X is very gentle, I think it's a 6dB/oct slope. It's very musical indeed but my go-to HPF in Nebula is the one in the 4KeQ BLK library.

Totally agree with mercado, 4Keq hpf here, the thing is I notice a big difference between a regular digital hpf and the nebula ones, with nebula filters everything remains quiet focused... With digital eqs I tend to hear some buzzing (subtle, but it´s there) artifacts, Maybe I´m crazy?
