Filter resonance

« Back to Glossary Index

The greater the resonance on a filter, the greater the effect of the filter: as resonance control is turned up, a little peak appears at the rolloff frequency. The harmonics that fall within that peak are accentuated. The greater the resonance, the higher the peak and the more pronounced is this effect. The effect of the swept resonant peak does not occur in real instruments. See also Q.
