Filtatron is a realtime audio filter and effects engine.
Use sound from sound sources:
- Line/microphone input
- Built-in oscillator
Import any song on your iDevice into the Sampler.
Run a sound through a virtual version of the famous Moog filter with a little (or a lot) of filter modulation, delay, and overdrive to create your own musical statement.
Multi-touch X-Y pads provide highly tweakable performance control for live use.
NEW: Switch Pad to "Pitch Lock" mode to play chromatic scales.
OSCILLATOR – A high-resolution, alias-free DSP oscillator with sawtooth and square waveforms, adjustable frequency from 0.3 Hz to 2kHz.
FX MODULES – Amp provides warm, smooth overdrive with feedback control. Delay can be modulated by its own LFO (with rate and depth controls) and delay time is smoothly interpolated for analog-style delay time tweaks.
LFO – Five waveforms: sine, ramp, sawtooth, square, sample & hold, with crossfade and morph between adjacent LFO shapes.
ENVELOPE FOLLOWER – Uses the volume envelope of sound inputs to sweep the filter, with controls for amount and speed.
PRESETS - Filtatron comes loaded with edgy presets to kick-start your sound.
RECORD AND PLAYBACK – All audio processed in stereo, 16bit, 44.1kHz resolution. Filtatron will record samples up to 10MB.
FILE SHARING – Easily move audio files back and forth between the Filtatron and your computer. Built-in email function allows sharing presets with your Filtatron bandmates. Samples can also directly be shared on SoundCloud.
MIDI MAPPING - Almost every parameter can be controlled over MIDI. Use hardware controllers or external sequencers to control Filtatron remotely. Check the MIDI menu on the 'About' page.
Life’s a rough mix, filter it!

Ratings and Reviews
Still love it
Yes like others I got this way back when. Yes it’s still an awesome tool and has a lot of ability to make otherworldly sounds from my silly little iPhone. I do wish I could plug in a midi keyboard to control the loops like Animoog, but the real use here is of course with the x-y pads.
Needs to be an Audio Unit now
Im a lifelong Moog fan, so many classics songs were created using Moog synths and hardware and I’m a fan of all their iOS apps, this and Animoog were insta buys and I loved them, but at the time au didn’t exist on the IPad, but now it does and its time to bring both up to the present iOS music state. I use Model 15 and Model D all the time and would love to bring Animoog Filtatron back into my workflow back into my workflow, especially Animoog but it’s not going to happen until they get updated to auv3 support. I’d give this 5 stars if it were an au.
Brilliant Lil Thing
This is such a unique, creative, and dynamic musical tool, I think it may be fair to call it its own instrument. Some of my favorite manipulated sample seshes came from this app, it’s a dream for sound designers, loopers, or anyone who wants an interesting and powerful musical device on their phone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
