Nonlinear Filter - The nasty way to sculpt and refine your sounds.

Do you know how Jimi Hendrix got his signature guitar sound? Nonlinear Filter.

Or that screechy lead in Block Rockin' Beats, by The Chemical Brothers? Nonlinear Filter.

How about the synth melody in Madonna's Like a Virgin? Believe it or not, Nonlinear Filter.

Alright, maybe not Kilohearts Nonlinear Filter. But if you are looking to add some vintage analogue twang to your sound, Kilohearts have you covered. Nonlinear Filter offers basic filtering with a variety of flavours to it, ranging from classic analogue-sounding filtering to more outlandish modes the further down the list you go.

What's a Snapin?

This plugin is a "snapin". That means you can use it as a regular plugin, or you can use it with Kilohearts snapin hosts Multipass and Snap Heap where you can combine effects in amazing ways.


  • Type - Select between low pass, bandpass, high pass and notch filters.
  • Drive - Overdrives the filter, which makes the effect of the nonlinear behaviour more prominent.
  • Cutoff - The operating frequency of the filter.
  • Mode - Selects what flavour of nonlinearity you want. The clean mode has no nonlinearities and does not colour the signal. All other modes distort and colour the signal in different ways to some extent.
  • Q - The filter Q setting. High values for Q will make the filter resonate at the cutoff frequency.
