In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring VHL-3C, a high and low pass filter which is based on a vintage passive design.
Filter With Character
Built around a cascade of two constant-K filters the VHL-3C‘s analog counterpart - a sought-after processor from the early 1950s - comprises an entirely passive design with very musical and interactive pass filters. Offering 3 simple and intuitive controls, the VHL-3C allows you to effectively remove rumble, hum or harsh frequencies from your signals. Set both filter knobs to their extreme positions and you‘ll end up with a narrow telephone-line bandpass.
How Do I Get This Plug-in?
Go to the Black Rooster website and sign up for a free account. After activating your account you will be able to download their plugin installer and you'll receive a serial number which will be needed later. By default the plugin installer installs all the Black Rooster plug-ins. Before launching Pro Tools you can manually delete the other plug-ins if you don't wish to have them installed for demo purposes. Once installed the VHL-3C appears in a "wrapped plug-ins" category rather than EQ.
