FabFilter Volcano 2
FabFilter has released FabFilter Volcano 2, the successor of the Volcano filter effect plug-in.
According to Fabfilter: Volcano 2 now contains four full-featured filters which can be routed in almost any possible way, including per-channel and mid/side modes. Each filter supports low-pass, high-pass and band-pass responses with 12, 24 and 48 dB/octave slopes and a staggering amount of eleven different filter characteristics that define the unique sound and overdrive of the filter. They range from clean with no distortion and smooth with moderate overdrive to raw, self-oscillating and over-the-top. Finally, each filter incorporates a delay line which enables the creation of chorus, flanging and phasing effects.
We're told that FabFilter Volcano 2 also introduces new and improved modulation sources. The new XLFOs extend our classic LFO, offering you anything from a simple sine or saw wave to a fully programmable 16-step sequencer. The XLFO features global and per-step glide parameters with adjustable glide curve type, synchronizable frequency, and wave form balance feature. The new MIDI modulation sources are designed to let you modulate parameters using any form of MIDI data, like modulation wheel, pitch bend, keyboard tracking, velocity and controller data. Finally, the new well-tuned envelope followers and the classic envelope generators can use both regular input and side chain input, opening up a world of new modulation possibilities.
System requirements for FabFilter Volcano 2 are either Windows Vista, XP, 2000, 98, Me, or 2003, SSE-capable processor, and a VST 2 or VST 3 host or Pro Tools, or Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) or higher, Intel or G4/G5 processor, and an Audio Units host, VST 2 or VST 3 host, or Pro Tools.
