Features of Kontakt - Part 14 - Filters
Now we will go over each of the filter modules as well as their parameters. In Kontakt, filters are modules that change the frequency content of a signal that passes through it.
Typically, filters are distinguished by the part of the spectrum that will be attenuated and the steepness of their attenuation curve, expressed in dB per octave. But in digital filter design specifying a filter slope as a number of poles has standard. Each pole represents 6dB of attenuation per octave. So for example a 1-pole filter will have gentle slope of -6 dB/octave and a 6-pole filter will have a steep slope of -36 dB/octave. Kontakt’s filters use the pole terminology. An easy way to remember is that lower pole filters (1-pole, 2-pole are better suited for gentle corrections while higher pole filters (4-pole, 6-pole) are better for broad treatments or effects.
