FabFilter One promises exceptional sound quality and
innovative filter design

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, March 17, 2004. FabFilter, a
young software company, announces the release of FabFilter
One, its first VSTi plug-in. FabFilter One is a powerful
monophonic lead synthesizer that realizes the best possible
sound and filter quality through innovative design techniques
and the utmost attention to detail.

FabFilter?s philosophy is that musicians do not need more
features, they need better sound. A new design approach has
resulted in a pure and solid-sounding oscillator and a unique
self-resonating cut-off filter that has been tuned carefully to
achieve the character and warmth of a classic analog
synthesizer. FabFilter One?s filter sounds raw but never cheap
or ?digital?, even at full resonance.

Smart parameter interpolation algorithms ensure that
FabFilter One responds immediately to parameter changes
while keeping transitions perfectly smooth, even with MIDI
controller changes. The attention to detail shows in the fine-
tuned portamento feature that really makes your play come

Whether you?re a musician looking for a software synthesizer
that sounds better than anything else, or a producer who
wants the raw filter capabilities of a classic analog synthesizer
