Different types of filters...

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Grind It Out, Nov 23, 2005.

  1. what exactly is the difference between high pass, bandpass, and low pass as far as filters go...i never used one w/ such options, and i have no clue what that means, and since im building a mutron, id like to kno what it does/sounds like for reference

    Hi pass allows hi freqs through. Low pass allows low freqs through. Bandpass allows a certain range of freqs through (determined by the designer).
  3. does "thru" mean uneffected, or does it mean thru the filter...

    like, if i have it on "low pass", do my lows remain clean and the highs r filtered? or vice a versa?
