Premium-quality cut-off filter
Painstakingly developed, the cut-off filter within FabFilter One provides the absolute best-sounding filter available, keeping it nice and simple with no useless features and options that can cause analysis paralysis but instead you are treated to the fattest and smoothest, self-oscillating digital filter available. Delivering a raw and aggressive sound without any over-the-top peaks, the cut-off filter accurately emulates the sound and feel of even the most sought-after and rare of vintage hardware synthesizers, completely aliasing-free. With Sawtooth, Triangle and Square waveforms, there is a bias to create harsher cut-offs that will add grit and character to your sound, the cut-off is not for the faint of heart! The filter section also contains settings that control the amount of frequency modulation by the modulation generator and envelope generator. Even when at full resonance, FabFilter One's cut-off filter doesn't display the typical pitfalls of digital filters such as distortion artefacts and a lack of cohesion, making it perfect for use with aggressive sounds in electronic dance music such as drum and bass.
At the heart of FabFilter One is the oscillator, producing strong, pure and clean tones that can be modified and adjusted through the rest of the signal chain of components within the synth. Although digital in nature, this would not be obvious when listening to it, thanks to the meticulous attention to detail that accurately emulates vintage analog oscillators to deliver fat and round low-end and complete clarity and articulation in the high-end. Featuring extensive pulse width modulation options, you can mix in white or pink noise to the signal to create traditional percussive sounds such as snares, claps or even hats for your rhythm section.
The oscillator can be modulated by the LFO and the Envelope Generator to offer an even greater depth of sounds available within FabFilter One. The built-in LFO offers both Triangle and Square waveforms with an adjustable balance, allowing you to select any waveform that sits between the two, making it ideal for creating customized sounds that stamp out your sonic signature.
Where most synthesizers will employ portamento that simply slides between notes, FabFilter One takes this one step further by utilising carefully selected algorithms to make your playing more lively and natural than conventional synthesizers. When used appropriately, portamento is one of the most exciting and expressive components of any synthesizer performance and this is acknowledged in FabFilter One where the parameters have been fine-tuned to perfection until the notes seamlessly sweep between each other with an unprecedented level of realism. Continuously looking to push the boundaries, FabFilter One also supports polyphonic portamento letting you express yourself in any number of notes within a chord!
Smart parameter interpolation
Giving you the smoothest experience possible, FabFilter One utilises smart parameter interpolation to ensure that each setting change is performed smoothly with a high degree of responsiveness. Now, you can cycle through settings to find what will work best with your sound source without the distracting and offputting clicks, digital distortion artefacts or 'zipper' effects. Due to this feature, FabFilter One responds immaculately when used in conjunction with a MIDI controller, meaning that when performing live your audience will not hear any audible distractions when you are adjusting settings on the fly.
Polyphony and velocity sensitivity
Now supporting 10-voice polyphony with highly comprehensive volume and velocity sensitivity, FabFilter will not hinder your ability to perform at your maximum capacity with as much expression and emotion as you need to accurately display your true intentions.
Intuitive and sleek interface
Modern and highly legible, FabFilter One continues the FabFilter tradition of creating the most functional and beautiful displays that allow you to navigate the parameters with ease with a very short learning curve or without ever needed to open a manual. This eliminates the frustrations of difficult interfaces that stifle creativity and lead to less productive sessions, something a modern composer and producer will be keen to avoid.
