BPB Dirty Filter
A colorful distorted filter effect (VST2/VST3/AU/AAX)
It’s a Free Filter
BPB Dirty Filter is a freeware VST plugin designed by Bedroom Producers Blog. It features a pair of resonant filters and emulated analog tube circuitry. You can use the BPB Dirty Filter in your favorite DAW to add some subtle coloration or to crush the audio signal into pieces.
It’s a Versatile Filter
Featuring a high-pass and a low-pass filter combo, BPB Dirty Filter is a useful utility for cleaning up your audio. Both filters have a range between 20 Hz and 20 kHz and the filter slope can be set to 12, 24, 36, or 48 dB/oct. The plugin also features a Mix knob and an output volume control for easy gain staging in your DAW.
It’s a Dirty Filter
With the Drive knob set to zero, BPB Dirty Filter operates as a transparent filter plugin. In this mode, it is great for cleaning up low-frequency hum or removing high-frequency noise. However, push the Drive knob to a higher setting and BPB Dirty Filter transforms into one of the most hardcore distortion plugins around.
BPB Dirty Filter is a creative effect built for sound designers. And although it can be used as a well-behaved filter, this wild little plugin was born to apply unhealthy amounts of dirt and grit to your audio. Think of it as a versatile distortion pedal with a wide range of tones. Pick any frequency range and add any amount of distortion to it, from subtle tube saturation to earth-shattering audio destruction.
