High pass filter at voice level

Would be great for certain drum sounds and layering stacks?
Filters are quite heavy on the processing - I can't guarantee we'll add them.

Depending on the sound, maybe you could try some phase cancellation between operators to remove the low frequencies and act like a cheap high-pass filter ? (that's just an idea, I haven't actually tried it)

Found another way to fake a high pass filter, by creating two duplicated voices :
- 1st one is your voice, it shouldn't use the filter
- 2nd has a lowpass filter and its waveforms inverted (can be simply offset=63 for symmetrical waveforms)

By playing both voices at the same time, the low ends cancel each other, leaving only highs

First of all, this is one of the most beautiful pieces of hardware I’ve purchased in a long time. The quality of the assembly is delightful and well thought out and the form factor is perfect. The sounds are also absolutely amazing. I have a preen fm2 and digitone, and this is definitely making those mostly redundant.

I wanted to post my praise here to also vote for a selectable filter type. The way you’ve implemented the lp is awesome. Allowing for high pass or band pass *instead on a particular voice would open up so many possibilities. The latest preen firmware went a *little nuts with filter options, but just allowing selection of hp or bp for now until you magically figure out how to allow a giant filter bank, would be awesome. The method you describe is great workaround.

Even if you never do, this is an amazing instrument. Can’t wait to really master it!
