MOOG Multimode Filter KEY FEATURES:

• Classic Moog ladder-type 24dB/Oct (4-pole) & 12dB/Oct (2-pole) LPF/HPF/BPF

• Extreme distortion via 0/+20dB Input Gain, replicating MiniMoog external input

• Stunningly “analog”; Self-Oscillation, Smooth Saturation, Zero Artifacts/Quantization

• Enveloper Follower, Six LFO wave shapes, and DAW tempo synchronization

• Mono & Stereo processing with Spacing/Offset features from Voyager

• Includes Free low-DSP Multimode Filter “SE” version for high instance counts

The new Moog Multimode Filter delivers the first truly analog-sounding VCF (voltage controlled filter) emulation made for mixing, performing, creating, or destroying. The Moog Multimode Filter combines the best of Bob Moog’s classic Moog Modular, Minimoog & Moogerfooger designs with select features from his final Voyager instrument. UA meticulously modeled the analog behavior of the historical 4-pole ladder filter including all of the non-linearities of the original. UA takes this analog marvel to the next level by combining a Lowpass, Bandpass, and Highpass filter in one unit, and allowing Moog’s signature self oscillation and extreme resonance in any of the filter modes.


“The Multimode Filter is our first step into a brand new area of sonic manipulation for UA and we are utterly proud to be doing it with the definitive “analog” filter/synthesizer company and indeed the original inventors of the classic ladder filter – Moog.” Said Mike Barnes, VP Marketing. “This product uses newly developed, proprietary and never-heard before filter modeling techniques to capture all the phat distortion, ballsy warmth, resonant squeals, sweeps and self-oscillation that are the big heart of the Moog sound.”

“The UA design team working from original Moog schematics has modeled circuit behavior right down to the individual component level. The result is a sonic tool that doesn’t just sound like a Moog filter, it responds dynamically to tweaks and changes in the same way that Moog hardware does, so you can really “play” the parameters in the classic Moog way.” enthused Michael J. Adams, Moog Music Inc, President.

“The overdrive is truly an outstanding feature; it’s so detailed and organic, with all kinds of beautifully-unpredictable sonic results depending on the source material and settings.  The envelope follower is smooth and musical, with a very natural response.  It’s easy to get a lot more life and interest out of almost any kind of digital source material with the tools this plug-in provides.  I think your customers will find that the Moog filter sounds and feels like working with a classic piece of analog hardware.” observed respected Moog “guru” Amos Gaynes, Moog Applications Engineer.
