PM.Ladder~: Moog Ladder Filter

Here is my port of the Moog ladder filter written using gen~ (Max 6 only).  It uses the ICST implementation, with a few added goodies such as additional filter modes (notch doesn’t work so great…) and peak-shaping.

It has built-in saturation and can self-oscillate.  Filter cutoff is specified in MIDI pitch rather than frequency.

The help-file provides a demo of a monosynth and has controls for key-following, the filter envelope, cutoff, etc.

Very nice, as are your other filters. Is it possible in gen to build a method to crossfade between the filter types? Or are phase issues a problem.

Should be very possible. None of the other filter shapes are in the feedback path, IIRC.

Cool, for now I just routed the different filters to separate outs and did a non-gen crossfade between the responses. Thanks
