Snapins are isolated audio effect modules, each performing a specific task. The Kilohearts product lineup will allow you to combine these snapins in different ways in order to create interesting and unique combinations of effects.
Snapins can be loaded into your DAW as a standard VST or Audio Unit plugin, as well as into other Kilohearts plugins that can act as snapin hosts, for example Multipass.
Sometimes in life, sound comes with frequencies you don’t like. So why not cut them out?
kHs Filter is a resonant filter with 7 modes, swiftly getting rid of frequencies you don’t like or enhancing frequencies you do. And it’s doing it and doing it and doing it good.
Type The type of filter. Select between low pass, band pass, high pass, notch, low shelf, peak and high shelf filters.
Cutoff knob The operating frequency of the filter. In a low-pass filter this is the frequency where the signal is reduced by 3dB.
Q knob The filter Q setting. High values for Q will make the filter resonate at the cutoff frequency. Gain The gain value for the low shelf, peak and high shelf filter types.
Settings panel Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…
Enabled checkbox The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.
Resize handle The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Filter as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.)

If you use a lot of snapins at the same time in your patch the CPU usage will increase accordingly. Thus, we cannot guarantee that the snapins will work flawlessly in all use cases even if your system does meet the minimum recommended system requirements.
