Etch is a versatile dual filtering effect with 4 switchable circuit models, additional distortion, compression and an intuitive, powerful modulation system. Animate Etch's parameters with internal LFOs and other modulators to create exciting, evolving effects. Etch is great for subtle warming, deep sculpting, wild sweeps and experimental sonics.



DCAM-modelled filtering effect
4 filter models: OTA-array, SVF, Sallen-Key and Comb
Varied multi-mode filter responses
Distortion stage with 4 models
Simple and effective 1-knob compressor
Intuitive TransMod modulation system
2 LFOs, envelope follower, sample-and-hold and triggered envelope
Secondary side-chain input and full MIDI control in compatible hosts
32-bit and 64-bit support
VST, AU, RTAS and AAX plugin formats 



Etch's DSP algorithms are based on DCAM circuit-modelling technology and run at 2x oversampling with an optional Hi Def 4x option. The plugin also provides convenient features such as a secondary side-chain input and full MIDI control in compatible hosts.



As well as multimode Sallen-Key and state-variable filter designs, Etch features an OTA-array model with numerous additional combinations and inversions of responses to produce unconventional, exciting filters that take your sounds to new places. Also included is a comb filter for psychedelic chorus/phaser textures and insane sounds from outer space. All 4 filter algorithms are capable of audio-rate cutoff FM from the internal LFOs or from an external audio source.




The internal TransMod modulation system lets you easily concoct fiendish ways of manipulating Etch's parameters. Modulators like the 2 LFOs, sample & hold and envelope follower can modulate each other as well as virtually any parameter within Etch. Travel through wild modulation setups to find sweet spots with the XY controller or create performance-based triggered filters with the MIDI note-triggered envelope - you can even make each note trigger a random filter response.
