Those sick sick sick guys at Ohm Force have some freebies out now. Go get them. And do get that full free multiband"phaser" plugin. Absolutely wild.

Quad Frohmage

Until the Quad Frohmage, every real filter lover had to rely on hardware to satisfy his musical needs. But now, hardware filtering is a thing from the past - as this baby beats everything you have heard so far.

First of all, it's multiband, because, as was saying Lao Tseu : "Four Filters Are Strictly Superior To One Filter". Second, each of those filters has a stunning variety of modes - not for the pleasure of adding parameters, just because sooner or later you'll need every one of them. You may know your classics (low pass, high pass, band pass, peak, notch and ring) but it's time to say hello to more exotic modes that should become addictive to your ears instantly: the singing comb filters in all their glory, the legendary moog filter and as a panicky bonus a self resonating mode for nearly all the classics mentioned above. Each of those filters has been tweaked with indecent love by our crew to give you efficient results in any way you play with the knobs. And each of those filters has its own delay parameter, its pan and its advanced distortion stage. This is especially interesting when we come to the third point: more than any Ohm Force product, Quad Frohmage pushes the concept of parameter modulation to its sickest limit.

Just select any parameter you want, not only the frequency - why not to apply for instance an envelope follower on the distortion shape, or an XADSR to the pan, or simply a good old LFO on the delay period%3is musical needs.

Depending of your inspiration, this can lead you to very accurate production settings to the most experimental madness.

Fourth, Quad Frohmage has the most incredible GUI you may find, even compared to the high-end Ohm Force standards on this matter. Apart from the ultra smooth knobs and fader, the advanced mouse support, the ultra helpful MIDI autobind feature, the outrageously cool preset morphing, get ready for the never before seen parameter modulation oscillator, that will show you in real time every move generated by the LFO, Envelope Follower and XADSR. Eye candy ? Certainly, but once you'll realize how much having visual feedback on this allows you to immediately see results while setting up the parameters, you'll start to get the point of all of this advanced graphic technology ...

More than a filter, more than four filters, more than four filters with delay, distortions and extensive parameter modulation settings, more than a monster with 600+++ fully automatable parameters (assuming that your host supports it), Quad Frohmage is just the King of the Hill when it comes to reshape your music, not only changing its colour but also its dynamic and rhythmic behaviour. In a sense, it will give you far more ways to define your sound than any virtual instrument.



Now a warning : it's AWFULLY addictive ...

[AudioUnits - VST 2.0 - DirectX - MAS - RTAS* + MIDI support]


Features :



>A Four filters unit that you can assemble in every possible way



>30 filter modes for each of those filters



>Advanced LFO module with 10 LFO types, Sample and Hold and smoothness control



>Advanced Envelope Follower module with Attack, Hold and Release settings



>Advanced XADSR module with and extra Sustain time parameter and an incredibly handy Sensitivity setting



>Apply those modulators to any parameter you want - even the three at the same time, using a factor from -1 to +1



>Easy BPM synchronization for all the modulation parameters - not only LFO but actually any parameter related to time (like ... say ... attack ... decay ... do you get it ?)



>Handful Copy and Paste feature to duplicate modulation parameters



>Advanced GUI full of live-dedicated features, such as flying knobs, preset morphing, and grouped parameters...



>Advanced MIDI support with autobind feature and fast configuration



>Modulation can even been driven by a MIDI keyboard, with either velocity or tone. In this last case, you have the possibility to0A
