Togu Audio Line has updated its beloved TAL-Filter-2 free plugin to version 3.0 with a redesigned user interface, Apple M1 support & more.
The world wide web is full of free audio plugins. Many very good ones, others that you would rather not install anymore in 2021. Bad sound quality, unsupported plugins with only 32-bit supports, bugs, old-fashioned interfaces, malware… There are a lot of problems with older plugins. Better to look twice before installing a free plugin.
Togu Audio Line from Switzerland is one of the manufacturers who regularly provide us with beautiful commercial but also free plugins. Now he has released a new version of his popular filter plugin TAL-Filter-2, which makes it ready for music productions in 2021.
TAL-Filter-2 3.0 is the latest version of the free filter plug-in from Togu Audio Line. It has a new, revised GUI that makes it easier and more precise to work with. According to the developer, it’s a host synced filter module with different filter types, panorama, and volume modulation possibilities. It features super clean state variable filters with a diode clipper in the feedback patch. Available are LP 12dB, BP 12dB, pan, and volume and the filter types can nicely self-oscillate.
Handy, the plugin is not only a filter/modulation tool but also an animated panner and volume shaper. For this, you have to select the Vol or Panner instead of the filter. These modulations are host sync to your DAW with different sync options including normal, dotted, and more. It not only master filtering, but it also works nice for tremolo, trance gate effects or panorama modulations, say Patrick Kunz of TAL Software.
TAL-Filter-2 3.0 also includes a legacy mode which makes patches from the previous versions compatible. Please don’t use it for new patches. Plus, there is a new file-based preset manager that was not present in the previous versions.
TAL-Filter-2 3.0 is available now as a free download for macOS including M1 support, Linux, and Windows. It runs as a 64-bit VST, VST3, AU and AAX plugin.
