FabFilter Timeless 2 online help

Table of contents


FabFilter Timeless 2's interface is divided into multiple sections:

  • Presets, undo, A/B, help
    The Undo, Redo, A/B and Copy buttons at the top of the plug-in interface enable you to undo your changes and switch between different states of the plug-in. With the preset buttons, you can easily browse through the vast library of factory presets or save your own settings so you can re-use them in other songs. The Help button provides access to the help file and other information and options.
  • Feedback and delays
    This is where the magic begins. The delay time is controlled by a big knob and can be synchronized to the host tempo. Both delay lines have there own feedback and cross feedback knobs which determine the amount of repeats. See Delay lines.
  • Filter section
    And in the filter section, the magic goes on! Our state-of-the-art multimode filters let you morph the delayed sounds, adding filtering effects ranging from gentle sweeps up to self-oscillating madness. See Filters.
  • Dry/wet level
    Here you control the audio output gain. The dry (unprocessed) signal and the output of the delay lines have their own output volume knobs. (The input gain control is located at the far left of the plug-in.) See Input/Output stage.
  • Modulation button
    The modulation button shows or hides the entire modulation section at the bottom of the interface. FabFilter Timeless 2 offers virtually unlimited modulation possibilities, but all this power might be a bit intimidating. That's why the modulation section is hidden by default, and you can look 'under the hood' when you want to tweak a preset or design your own.
  • Source selection bar
    The source selection bar shows all modulation sources at a glance and lets you easily scroll around and create new sources. FabFilter Timeless 2 offers XLFO, Envelope Generator (EG), Envelope Follower (EF), MIDI and XY Controller sources. See also Modulation.
  • Modulation slots and sources
    The bottom section contains the modulation sources. The modulation section in Timeless 2 is fully modular — but without the cables! We found a simple way to show you everything that is modulating, and what is modulated by what. Above each modulation source, the modulation slots show exactly what targets are modulated by this source and let you adjust the amount of modulation. You can very easily set up modulation connections with drag-and-drop. All in all, we think we made sound design easier and more fun!

  • MIDI Learn, channel mode, output options
    The bottom bar contains the MIDI Learn feature which sets up any MIDI controller to control any plug-in parameter. Next, we find the channel mode option for Mid/Side channel mode, the auto-mute self-oscillation option, and a monitoring option that lets you listen to the dry input and side-chain signals.

  • Resize
    The resize button in the lower-right corner lets you choose between normal and wide interface layouts. The wide layout eliminates scrolling in the top part of the interface and provides more space for the modulation sources at the bottom of the interface. Most hosts support dynamic resizing of the interface; otherwise just close and re-open the interface window.
