Filtering Made Fun
SSF, the first plugin in the Sixth Sample family, is more than just removing unwanted frequencies. On top of being a workhorse filter for standard frequency treatment, it’s specifically designed for creative sound design and just having some fun in your production. Add dynamics to your drums, liven up instruments, or elevate your arpeggiators to the next level. Only your imagination is the limit.
The SSF was born around an idea of a filter with a self-modulating cutoff slider. Automating filter cutoff can create neat sounds and is used everywhere in modern-day music. Why not make it as painless as possible? Sync the modulation to your beat or let it oscillate freely from 0.1 up to 50 times a second. The range of the modulation is easily changed just by dragging from either side of the slider.
7 Filters + Volume Mode
The SSF comes with a filter for all of your filtering needs. The additional volume mode enables a whole new dimension of creative possibilities. Tremolo, gate, sidechain, you name it. Volume mode, together with the pan slider, for instance, can create engaging stereo separation effects. Browse through the filters with just one mouse click.
I love music with swinging rhythms. Something about it makes beats and melodies sound more energetic. When syncing SSF to your project’s tempo, the swing slider helps you match the modulations exactly to your track’s time signature.
Hunt for the Perfect Rhythm
Don’t want to spend time drawing automation clips? The random mode doesn’t only modulate the cutoff but also creates modulation patterns for you. Choose between four different pattern lengths, pick rates you want to include in the randomization, and let the SSF do its magic. Enable skips, and some rates get randomly ignored to create even more diversity in your rhythms. If the skips aren’t what you are looking for, you can randomize them again, independently of the rates.
3 800 000 000+
million possible rate patterns. That’s a lot of patterns…
Fast Envelope Controls
Just five sliders give you complete control over the modulation characteristics. Realtime envelope changes transfer smoothly to the cutoff sliders movement, giving you the freedom to automate them as you wish!
Below is a general demo of all filters in the SSF and its in-built modulation. All filter cutoff modulations are done live with no automation clips. Searching for cool rhythm patterns never gets old.
With its volume mode, SSF is a really powerful dynamics tool. Here’s a demonstration with a single shaker sample. The second half of the clip is with SSF turned on.
It’s sometimes really refreshing to change the look of the plugins we use every day. So you don’t get bored of always looking at the same colors on your screen, the SSF comes with 20 distinct themes you can alternate between to keep things fresh. Which one will end up being your favorite?

NOTE: Due to my own error, I had to change the manufacturer code inside the plugin for version 1.0.2. This, unfortunately, means, that if you have purchased an earlier version of the plugin and updated it to the latest one, the plugin will have to be rescanned inside your DAW. Another unfortunate consequence is that old projects that have previous versions of the plugin might not be able to open the new version for the same reason.
If you would prefer an earlier version over the latest one, let me know, and I would be happy to send it to you. 🙂
