FilterBank2 is power:
Tone2 FilterBank2 is more than a filter plugin - it is a complete VST synthesizer and a flexible multi-effect unit. The modular design and flexible modulation routing give you nearly unlimited possibilities. With self-oscillating filters, oscillators and feedback it can create complete sequences and textures. FilterBank sounds are impressive and absolutely unique. The built-in step sequencer can create rhythmic sequences with some mouse clicks.

The high-end stereo filters are reference quality and the scientific work of years. FilterBank2 comes with 54 different sounding filter types.

FilterBank's delay and reverb sounds support surround encoding - even in a stereo mix. That's why audio tracks processed with FilterBank2 will appear more transparent and clear.

Play it live:
All parameters can be tweaked in realtime. If you are using a mouse, the plugin smoothes your movements automatically - there won't be clicks or glitches. If you want to use Midi, a simple right-click on a knob activates the Midi learn function and it is automatically assigned to your controller. FilterBank2 is never out-of-beat because it automatically synchronizes delay times, LFO's and the step sequencer to your host's BPM rate.

FilterBank2 is fun:
FilterBank2 is very user friendly. A display visualizes in realtime what you are doing, this makes it easy to understand what you are currently tweaking. In addition the user interface offers tooltips and help.
