iZotope has announced the release of Mobius Filter, which they describe as a new effect plug-in that creates the sensation of infinite movement. They say that, based on the auditory illusion of the Shepard Tone, the filters within Mobius Filter appear to defy logic, producing perpetually rising or falling effects that can be easily manipulated with a playful X/Y pad.
A spokesperson told us, "The ever-ascending or descending results bring impact to a track: as an intensifying build-up to a chorus or drop, or as a creative effect on individual tracks and instruments. Music producers can turn to Mobius Filter as an inspiring alternative to a standard flanger or phaser, as the antidote to a lackluster bridge or arrangement, or as the spark for psychotropic sonic textures."
iZotope tells us that early fans include renowned music producer/mixer/engineer Joe Chiccarelli (U2, The White Stripes, Spoon, The Shins): "I'm loving this - I've been using it on guitars, keys and drums. It's great to have the up/down switch work while the track is playing to change the sweep. It's a no-brainer filter...very cool!"
"Our goal was to make Mobius Filter a joy to play with," adds Izzy Maxwell, iZotope Product Manager. "As you experiment with the controls, you start to realize how powerful directional motion can be, and how strongly it influences the mood and vibe of your track. Mobius Filter and its experience of 'infinite motion' offer up a modern tool for expressiveness, unlocking a new level of emotional control."
