FabFilter Timeless 3 online help

Table of contents


FabFilter Timeless 3's interface is divided into multiple sections:

  • Delay display
    The interactive delay display visualizes the delay and settings, input and feedback and lets you edit delay time, feedback and additional taps. See Delay display.
  • Filter display
    Using the filter display, you can add up to 6 different filters to the delayed sound. These can be either the classic non-linear, self-oscillating LP/HP/BP filters, or clean Bell, Notch or Shelf EQ filters. See Filters.
  • Delay controls
    At the center of the interface, the large Delay Time knob sets the main delay time. Using the pan ring you can offset either the left or right channel up to 400% of the main time. Control delay feedback using the Feedback, Feedback Pan and Feedback Cross Mix knobs. At the right, you can set the stereo width and dry/wet levels. See Delay controls.
  • Effect controls
    At the left of the delay controls, the five effect knobs enable effects that will color the sound of the delay. See Effects.
  • Modulation section
    The modulation section at the bottom shows all modulation sources, visualizing the signal flow and making it easy to set up modulation and create new sources. FabFilter Timeless 3 offers XLFO, Envelope generator (EG), Envelope follower (EF), MIDI and XY controller or slider sources. See Modulation to get started.
  • Channel Mode
    The Channel Mode button in the bottom bar controls whether the internal delays process left and right channels (Left/Right mode), or mid and side signals (Mid/Side mode). See Input/output options.
  • Auto Mute Self-Osc
    When enabled, the possible self-oscillation introduced by the non-linear filters will be muted automatically when the plug-in input becomes silent. See Input/output options.
  • Output options
    On the far right of the bottom bar, you can bypass the entire plug-in and the output button gives access to input/output level and panning controls. See Input/output options.
  • Full Screen mode, resizing and scaling
    The Resize button at the far right of the bottom bar lets you change the interface size and scaling. In addition, click the Full Screen button in the top-right corner of the interface to let Timeless 3 fill the entire screen. See Full Screen mode, resizing and scaling.
  • MIDI learn
    MIDI Learn lets you easily associate any MIDI controller with any plug-in parameter. See MIDI Learn.
  • Presets, undo, A/B, help
    With the preset buttons, you can easily browse through the factory presets or save your own settings so you can re-use them in other songs. 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. Finally, the Help menu provides access to help and version information. See Loading presets and Undo, redo, A/B switch.
