King Tubby's Big Knob Emulated

US AudioThing releases Dub Filter - Vintage High-Pass Filter      28/03/24

AudioThing tells us that Dub Filter is based on the Altec 9069B High Pass Filter as used by King Tubby (and many others) at King Tubbys Studio in Waterhouse, Jamaica. Apparently known as King Tubby's Big Knob, it was a passive high-pass filter with eleven frequency steps from 70Hz to 7.5KHz. This filter is aid to have defined the sound of the entire "roots" era of Jamaican music.

A spokesperson told us, "On top of the main stepped Frequency knob and the Impedance (resonance), the filter also offers control over its behavior including Magnetism, Character, Dynamics, and Artefacts controls. We have also included two modulation sources, LFO and Envelope Follower, to enhance the creative possibilities of the plugin, from rhythmic pulsations to organic filter movements."

Dub Filter is available for MAC, PC, and LINUX (VST, VST3, AU, AAX, CLAP, 64-bit only), and also as AUv3 and Standalone on the App Store.

Pricing and Availability:
On sale at €29 (Regular price: €59)
Dub Filter is free for previous owners of the discontinued product, Dub Station.
