2-Pole SVF Lowpass Filter with Saturation, Pitch Modulation and Compression

A very simple filter effect, combining a delay, a filter and a compressor. Create distorted lo-fi tones with this all-in-one, lightweight audio effect.

Signal Chain:
Input > Delay > Filter > Compressor > Output

The pitch modulation is done by applying small amounts of a Random LFO to the time of the delay.

Rate: Sets the rate at which the random LFO changes values
Damp: Applies a lowpass filter to the random LFO
Drift: Sends the filtered random LFO to the delay time, creating pitch modulation
LPF: The cutoff frequency of the lowpass filter
Res: Resonance of the filter
Sat: The level at which incoming audio will begin to saturate
Atk: The attack time of the compressor
Rls: The release time of the compressor
Comp: Lowers threshold of compressor, also applies gain to the outcoming signal
Ratio: Ratio of the compressor
Knee: Knee shape of the compressor
Volume: Output volume trim
