About FabFilter Simplon
After our first filter plugin FabFilter Volcano, we now offer a more basic way of using
our filters. FabFilter Simplon is the answer if you need quality filtering for an
FabFilter Simplon provides the best sounding filters in an easy to use setup. It contains the
fattest multi-mode filters which are impressively
analogue-sounding with brilliant resonant sweeps and a deep bass end.
- Multimode filters
Two independent multimode filters provide low-pass, high-pass, and band-pass responses with 12,
24 and 48 dB/octave slopes. Both filters feature three different high-quality filter
characteristics that define the unique sound and overdrive of the filter. They range from
smooth and clean to raw, self-oscillating and over-the-top! Since the 2 multi-mode filters work
both serially and in parallel you can combine them in any way imaginable.
- Interactive filter display
Tweak the filters with the interactive filter display that shows both filter curves and lets
you drag them around. You can adjust them separately or both at the same time.
- MIDI learn
FabFilter Simplon works with any MIDI keyboard or controller. It is very easy to assign each of
Simplon's parameters with any MIDI controller number, just by turning knobs in the user
interface and on the external controller.
- Smart parameter interpolation
Changes to any of FabFilter Simplon's parameters are interpolated by smart algorithms, ensuring
both responsiveness and smooth transitions. There are no unwanted digital clicks and zipper
effects, and even MIDI controller changes are handled perfectly smooth.
- Low CPU usage
We have taken great care to ensure that FabFilter Simplon uses even less CPU power than Volcano
with innovative AltiVec and SSE optimizations. All parameters can be automated and handling of
MIDI events and parameter changes is sample accurate.

FabFilter Simplon enables you to create and save your own presets. You can share your settings
with other users and the preset files are the same on Windows and Mac OS X.
