Ibanez AF9 Auto Filter


  • Sensitivity
    determines when the effect will trigger.
  • Peak
    boosts the center frequency for more dramatic filtering (like a Resonance control on a synthesizer).
  • Filter (LP/BP/HP)
    Selects the type of filter: Lowpass, Bandpass or Highpass.
  • Drive (Up/Down)
    Selects the direction of the filter sweep: upwards or downwards.
  • Range (High/Low)
    Selects the frequency range of the filter.

Auto filters are automatic "wah-wah" type sliding filters that are triggered by the input level. The AF9 Auto Filter has taken that idea several steps further. The AF9 provides three selectable filter types, two slide directions and two slide ranges. The Sensitivity control adjusts the auto threshold and the Peak control determines the slide width. The chosen filter's slide action may be placed wherever the emphasis is desired, making the AF9 ideally suited for any type of instrument. The AF9 Auto Filter truly represents the state-of-the-art.
