Death By Audio Deep Animation Envelope Filter
This is the Death By Audio Deep Animation and it’s so good it hurts.
This crazy goofball responds to how you play, enveloping and filter sweeping and overdriving.
Finally, the perfect wave-thumper moves with how hard you hit your strings. It multiplies your dynamics into a hyper, exaggerated dance.
Or it adds just the right amount of movement to punch through the mix. Or it moves around with an external trigger to lock you in. The sounds are wild, the thump is thick, and the animation is deep.
This is what the guys at Death By Audio have to say:
Death by Audio Deep Animation is an “envelope filter with serious attitude”
This mangled, filter-sweeping, abruptly overdriving pedal responds to your playing.
It syncs its wave-thumping movement with the force at which you play and multiplies dynamics into a hyper-exaggerated frenzy.
Adding just the right amount of movement to punch through the mix, it reacts to an external trigger of your choosing to follow your tempo.
The sounds are wild, the thump is thick, and the animation is deep. So, plenty of room for creativity and tweaking. Here it is in action.
Controls – Death By Audio Deep Animation
Input: Plug an instrument into this jack.
Trig: Plug another instrument into this jack to trigger the filter sweep with that instrument.
Out: Connect this to the amplifier.
Sensitivity: Determines the point at which the filter kicks in and how dynamic the filter shifts to the input amplitude.
Intensity: Simultaneously blends in the resonance, amount, and grit of the filter.
Vol: Adjusts the output volume of the Deep Animation.
Frequency Selector: Selects the frequency range of the filter.
Bypass: True bypass the effect.
Up / Down: Controls the direction the filter travels when decaying after being triggered. UP sweeps the frequency from higher frequencies to lower ones.
Additional Features: There is a subtle light that indicates when the trigger is being triggered behind the main bypass LED.

Andrew E (verified owner) –
Having used it as a guitar pedal mainly (although I have plans to hook it up to my synth too), I am enjoying it on the whole. Its fair to say it uses are a bit niche, although you need to invest time in it – which I am only just doing. Build quality is amazing, no doubt. I run in in front of a pre-amp (mile end effects preamp 150) and into a 1960’s impact head amp, together they produce a nice noise. Turning the sensitivity and intensity down, frequency selector at 5 volume full and in down mode its a very nice distortion that is my go to mode of operation, acting like an extra knarl dimension to the slight distortion from the pre-amp on its own. There are so many combinations of sound you can get from it with slight tweaks, this has pros and cons for me, pro because its versatile but con because it makes it less easy to plug in and re-create the sound you had last practice (I take photos now of the settings). The dynamic sensors also can be a pro and con, pro in that you get some amazing sounds con in that it can be hard to control sometimes – again fiddling with the sensitivity and intensity and learning (and remembering the settings) is key I guess to getting the most out of it.
