2B Shaped Filter is a multi-mode filter effect with modulation capabilities, somewhat similar to the TAL-Filter-3 (freeware) plugin we covered recently.
It offers four different filter types (Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, and Band Reject), each with two different slope variants.
The filter cutoff can be modulated internally via a freely editable LFO. The LFO module comes with a selection of standard curve shapes (sine, saw, etc.), but the user can freely customize the modulation curve using the onboard spline editor. You can build the modulation shapes from scratch or edit the ones that are included with the plugin.
Filter modulation is not the only thing you can do with 2B Shaped Filter. The plugin also lets you automate the volume, a technique that works quite well for emulating the “pumping” sound of side-chain compression.
The effect is available in VST and AU plugin formats for compatible digital audio workstations on Windows and macOS. Only 64-bit plugin hosts are supported.
Here’s a bit more info about the plugin:
2B Shaped Filter is a powerful audio effect filter that reacts to the shapes you create with the advanced spline editor. 2B Shaped Filter is derived from its big brother 2B Shaped, based on customer demand.
