It’s really more than a filter !
it’s 4 filters (or other effect : distorsion, volume) in parallel, with envelop following and “tridimensional” LFO to drive them.

Minion in full effect : come on and riiiiiiiide !


3. Blue Filter

Digilogue Blue Filter

This VST plugin is very old too ! But it does the job.
The “amount” and “slope” parameters for controlling the envelope follower is the key to make it sound funky. But don’t push the amount too hard, or the plugin will behave strangely (audio bug).
Click on the “Frequency plot” tab to show the filter transfer function.

    Is there an equivalent to the ResoBeat Resonant Filter from the Thelotron BeatModel T1 plugin pack DX ?
    it was in directX format and i never found any VST filter with the same quality, freeware or commercial.
