Admiral Quality SCAMP

SCAMP is a resonant low/highpass filter plugin VST and Audio Unit effect for Windows and Mac OSX with a very convincing, classic sound. SCAMP features a separate envelope follower for each of 6 channels, a host-syncable LFO with multiple waveforms, as well as our unique Gliss-quanti™ feature for creating staircased LFO waveforms from the basic waveshapes. Also supported is full automation support and MIDI CC control of the filter cutoff frequency.

SCAMP closely models the actual circuit paths of real world analog circuits and may be somewhat more CPU intensive than other filter effects you’re familiar with. Many other filter designs, while more computationally efficient, don’t actually model the realworld operation of the circuit. Rather, they reproduce a “characterization” of the filter’s response. While this method actually performs quite well “on paper”, and can produce very transparent and precisely controlled digital filters, these qualities just aren’t well suited to recreating that classic analog warmth that so many musicians seek. It was essentially the flaws and design sacrifices of the original analog circuits which gave them their unique sound. For SCAMP, we’ve done our best to make your computer believe that it is an analog circuit, as flawed, imperfect and full of warmth as the classic gear that inspired its development. While far from the most “transparent” filter effect on the market, SCAMP exceeds at achieving the “airy”, “hairy”, and even “scary” sounds of classic analog filters!

SCAMP is perfectly suited for recreating the sounds made by running audio through a classic synthesizer’s filters. While external audio processing is also offered by some far more expensive softsynth products, it is now available as a very affordable standalone effect, specialized to the task, and with a quality and authenticity unmatched even by the bigboys. Whether used on a single instrument track, or for processing an entire mix, SCAMP will dramatically alter your audio with a classic flavor. If you have an appreciation for the sound, behavior and quirks of vintage analog filters that you just haven’t been able to duplicate in software, SCAMP may be the effect plugin you’ve been waiting for.
