    So what really is an envelope filter? I have been told it is about the same as an equalizer and cuts away certain frequencies. Then I have been told it is the same as an auto wah.
    That does not really make sense to me.
    I've been to pretty much all local music stores but none of them had an envelope filter there.

    Thanks
     
  2. well im not exactly sure, but ive got a instructional video with flea in it and when he uses the envelope filter it makes it sound like its a fat "underwater" type sound.

    For an idea of what an envelope filter sounds like, listen to the bass intro/verse of Crazytown's song "Toxic".

    That's the best example I can think of.
