Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video High- and low-pass filters, part of Audio Foundations: EQ and Filters.
We know that shelving filters boost or cut energy at the target frequency and…all audio frequencies either above or below it.…A pass filter also affects all energy above or below the target frequency, often…referred to as the cutoff frequency in a pass filter.…However, instead of boosting or cutting that content by a specific amount of…gain, it instead removes that frequency content completely.…Any frequency content outside the cutoff frequency is attenuated or cut…gradually in a downward slope, heading towards negative infinity.…
Let's listen to some audio examples.…Listen to the following drum loop with a high-pass filter engaged.…(music playing)…Next, let's listen to the loop with a low-pass filter engaged.…
(music playing)…Like the name suggests, a high-pass filter allows the highs to pass through the…filter unaffected, while the low frequencies are attenuated, or removed, starting…at the cutoff frequency and lower.…
Likewise, a low-pass filter allows the lows to pass through the filter…unaffected while the high frequencies are attenuated or removed, starting from…
