At 1:40 into the video "MAKJ - Studio Sessions - Episode 001" MAKJ talks about the Sonalksis Creative Filter: "... and it has this filter on it that I really, really enjoy. It's called the Creative Filter from Sonalksis. It's one of my favorite plugins, I use it... it's probably on every channel. I start a new audio track, this is the first thing on it, because a lot of the stuff that you get from different plugins - Waves, even the stock stuff - it adds digital 'crap' I would say on the track. You put it on you channel and it immediately ruins the file of your audio stuff. This one, this filter, I don't see a change of sound quality. And the filters are really, really sharp too. You can go up to a 48dB cut, you can do 24, the resonance is really nice so, I really push this filter a lot."more
The Sonalksis Creative Filter is the world's first 'Adaptive Resonance' filter - an entirely new generation of filter that automatically adapts resonance and saturation characteristics according to a psychoacoustic model. It can be used for slow, gentle sweeps; massive screaming distorted sounds, and just about everything in between. Ultimately though, the Creative Filter is simply about creativity.
The Creative Filter is designed to be flexible enough to fulfil your needs whenever you reach for a filter, but without forcing you through a complex interface, or requiring time spent calibrating fine detail. It adaptively calibrates itself for you. So whether you want a filter to correct a sound, to make a sonic statement, or to create something completely new, you can achieve what you want directly and with minimal effort.
Standard filters require the alteration of resonance with frequency to maintain stable sonic attributes, particularly when resonance or saturation levels are elevated. This can make setup complex, adjustments difficult, and makes obtaining a perfect filter sweep very demanding. However the Creative Filter's 'adaptive resonance' system uses a psychoacoustic model to ensure a faultless sound regardless of filter style, distortion levels, frequency settings or sweep motions.
Adaptive Resonance is the technology in the Sonalksis Creative Filter that controls the interaction between frequency, resonance and circuit saturation with respect to this psychoacoustic model, in order to give an improved sonic aesthetic in any circumstances.
