Introducing Motion Filter

Sweep dull mixes to the side

No items found.

From subtle motion to epic sweeps, dynamic filters play an essential role in modern tracks. Motion Filter is the fastest way to create this effect, offering an obstacle free workflow and pristine sound quality.

The plugin has two main modes: 'Sweeper' gives you filter motion that follows your track's dynamics, powered by an envelope follower. 'LFO' lets you apply pre-programmed motion patterns and sync them with your DAW.

At subtle settings, Motion Filter can replace a traditional static filter, adding just a touch of organic movement. At extreme settings, it can transform any sonic material into an ear-catching mix element. Use it in sidechain mode to control the filter with external sources like a kick drum.

Ultra-clean filter

Motion Filter's state-of-the-art DSP offers a smoother sound than most filter plugins. Thanks to its Nyquist-corrected architecture, Motion Filter produces a surgical response across the entire frequency spectrum, even at radical settings.

Obstacle free workflow

If we can save you 10 seconds of configuration time by eliminating routing obstacles and automation lanes, then we've done our job. Like all Denise Audio plugins, Motion Filter is designed with the highest ergonomic standards in mind, giving you everything you need right at your fingertips.

Two motion modes

Envelope Follower or LFO

No items found.

Sweeper - Move with the dynamics of your track

Sweeper Mode gives you the original Denise Sweeper plugin’s envelope-controlled filter to use your track’s dynamics as a modulation source for the filter movement. Active sounds like loops and percussion instantly get into motion as their peaks and valleys affect the action of the filter.

LFO - Cinematic sweeps on repeat

The new LFO mode lets you craft patterns of recurring sweeps based on wave shapes. Dial in smooth undulating sine sweeps that unfold over multiple bars or create jerky fits and starts with sharp square or saw waves. Get your music pumping by syncing the LFO rate to the host BPM.
