Allows you to split the input sound into 5 easily tweakable frequency bands.

When adding effects to a sound, it's not uncommon to want to apply these effects to just a
certain part of the sound. For example, you might not want a complex chorus to affect your
bass too much, or a hard distortion to totally fry your high end. Either way, multiband
processing adds a dimension to effect chains that really opens up a new world of options
in sound design. Multipass helps you with this, allowing you to split the input sound into
up to 5 easily tweakable frequency bands and applying unlimited number of effects to each
band. Pitch shifted auto pan with a filtered chorus delay distortion? Coming right up!

Band splitting comes with a bit of a price. It's unavoidable (without adding latency) to
mess a bit with the phase of the sound. Usually this is not a problem, but when chaining
multiple multiband effects this can add up to a lot of phase distortion. In Multipass, the
band splitting is only done once no matter how many effects you add, leaving the phase as
minimally harmed as possible. It also sorts out dry/wet mixing of effect lanes properly
without phasing where possible. Parallel multiband compression, here we come!

While adding four filters a frequency shifter and a stereo width modifier can be interesting
in itself, adding four filters with sweeping cutoff retriggered by audio threshold, a
frequency shifter bound to the MIDI note and stereo width scaled by the input RMS can be...
Well, probably strange. But it may be amazing, and trying it out is just a couple of clicks
away. Try it!

When you're tweaking a specific frequency band, the other bands and effects involved can
sometimes make it hard to properly hear what's going on. Mute or solo effect lanes to quickly
home in on what you're doing. And if you automate it, it can even be an effect in itself!

Don't worry about latency. No matter how you route things or what effects you add, Multipass
makes sure everything is as in sync as they can be to make sure all modulation aligns
properly and to avoid phasing issues.

Keep everything in synch, in phase and properly aligned. Order today.
