Follower

The Xhip synthesizer filter controlled by a HAR envelope follower.

Description

This effect remains a work-in-progress. Currently it is a floating-point implementation of the 24 dB low-pass filter used in Xhip.

It includes a block-wise HAR envelope follower and key tracking.

Parameters

Filter
Cutoff
Cutoff frequency can be offset by -100% to +100%
Q
While typically an envelope-follower filter is used with high Q, there are also many uses for varied settings that aren't possible in an effect without a Q parameter.
Saturation
Allows adjustment of filter non-linearity.
Envelope Follower
Attack
Attack time.
Hold
Sets the attack-hold time. At 100%, ensures peak input levels are tracked.
Release
Release time.
Depth
Envelope depth to cutoff.
Scale
This switch allows adjustment of input sensitivity for the envelope follower.
Keytrack
Enables pitch-sensitive filter.
Side-chain
When enabled the envelope-follower is applied to the side-chain signal.

Comments

My plans for this effect include various filter and envelope follower modules to be selected from a list.

This is more an issue of GUI functionality than anything else at this point.
