Arturia M12-Filter - Electronic Delivery

Legendary analog polysynth filter reworked as a superbly powerful, modern plug-in for your DAW
MFR# 1090-59

Product Description

The Arturia M12-Filter is a full-featured recreation of the multi-mode filter found in Oberheim’s iconic Matrix-12, kitted out with awesome updates that make this plug-in one of the most powerful, performable sound-shaping tools around.

Combining intuitive, gorgeous-sounding modelled analog filter tone control with programmable modulation envelopes, a detailed mod matrix, and bonus random and mod osc parameters, M12-Filter is set to become your go-to choice for creative frequency control. Create anything from smooth sweeps to rhythmic motion, all the way to full-blown, randomized glitch meltdowns: this plug-in can handle it all.

The most advanced, adaptable filter of its era

In 1984, audio and electronics legend Tom Oberheim developed a groundbreaking subtractive, analog polyphonic synthesizer; a brave move when the digital synth revolution was taking the industry by storm. Standing the test of time, his brainchild instrument is now considered a classic, and the emulated version takes pride of place in V Collection. One of the main reasons it turned heads in the 80s was its audacity, the sheer power of its signal routing options, and its multi-mode filter.

The original synthesizer’s filter employed a single filter per voice, but provides no fewer than 15 different filter modes. This included Low Pass and three High Pass modes, two Band Pass modes, a Notch filter, and a Phase Shift mode. It also included another 4 modes, combining 1-Pole Low Pass filters with other modes. This unique selection of filter options is largely responsible for the immense power and scope of the fabled Matrix sound.

This filter is now available as a re-energized creative plug-in for your DAW.

Iconic filter tone with a modern twist

As if accurately recreating Tom Oberheim’s original filter wasn’t amazing enough, Arturia have also supercharged this virtual version with contemporary features you’re going to love.

Practically an instrument in its own right, the reborn M12-Filter is packed with intuitive yet powerful features. With it, you’ll be able to transform your source material into totally new sounds; create pulsing patterns; perform dramatic sweeps; or simply hone your tone using one of its many filter modes. Its CPU-friendly, low latency architecture also make it the perfect, animatable filter to use in your live sets and performances.

Made possibly through the magic of their True Analog Emulation technology, Arturia originally brought the sonic signature of this 80s icon into the 21st century studio in Matrix-12 V, Arturia's critically acclaimed software version of Oberheim’s classic, and a jewel in the crown of the Arturia V Collection. Call it selfish, but, as a company of musicians, Arturia wanted to unleash the power of Matrix-12 V’s filter, free it from the software synth, and create a new, exciting DAW plug-in. To echo the depth and complexity of its synth family, the filter has been supercharged with extra processing, modulation envelopes, and vast routing options with a modulation matrix.

  • Twin analog filters: The plug-in features two discrete analog filters, each identical to the original with cutoff and resonance control, as well as all 15 original modes. For total control freaks, Arturia have also added filter effect panning and level control for each filter.
  • Filter processing: M12-Filter offers 4 filter routing options: A, B, series, and parallel, giving you huge control over its sound. A dry/wet knob is also included, as well as a MatrixBrute-style master cutoff that affects both filters at once.
  • Modulation envelopes: This control section lets you adjust each of its 3 envelopes, letting you create anything from slowly evolving sonic mutations to full-on step sequences. Tempo-sync’d or free and easy, continuous or one-shot, it’s all up to you.
  • Modulation matrix: The brain of the operation. With your filters prepared, your processing selected, and your mod envelopes assigned, you can link your envelopes, random, and mod osc to over 20 destinations, all discretely configurable.
