Filter effects on vocals with Mobius Filter

Tips & Tutorials  |  March 29, 2016

Based on the auditory illusion of the Shepard Tone, Mobius Filter plug-in adds motion and energy to your music for infinitely ascending or descending filter sweeps.

When looking for phasing or flanging effects on vocals, Mobius Filter gives you a fresh new sound by running seemingly infinite filters in the same direction. This lets you choose between all upward movement to build tension and excitement, or all downward movement to release tension. Processing the entire vocal bus has the effect of gluing the lead vocal and backing harmonies together.

The stereo slider is used to create an immersive effect that has an unusual and distinctive intensity, particularly when heard through headphones or a very high-quality stereo listening environment.

In this example, movement in Mobius Filter is frozen when the additional instruments are added to the mix. This way, the center frequency can be swept manually to achieve a more human, expressive sound.
