• Amazing app! ★★★★★
    Incredible peak multi-filter implementation. If you are sick of standard high/low-pass closings/openings in your FX here is a new universe for you to explore.

  • Apefilter truly the best on AppStore ★★★★★
    The only other filters that come close are Auria Pro plugins, but this is more fun. The apps by this developer get updated regularly and are extremely well thought out, raising the standard for the quality of iOS music-making in general.

  • One of my favorite FX apps ★★★★★
    Great app for modulating synths and other iPad music apps. The LFOs make it a real peach to use. Fantastic.
    By MusicInclusive LLC for Version 1.4.2
  • Solid Effect with Link Support ★★★★★
    The app works as advertised and has all of the options you'd want. It's an excellent way to change up your sounds in sync with other Link sources. The developer updates the app regularly so it works with the latest iOS and utilizes updated sound tools such as Audiobus, MidiBus, document picker, and Link.

  • Best EQ option ★★★★★
    This is the only real EQ option for iphones (non ipad). All other EQ limits you to only a few points and uses classic (clunky) interfaces. Love this thing. Made mixing a lot easier and honestly it's usually used as an effect since you can sweep thru the eq with several bands creating wild soundscapes

  • Also very customizable ★★★★★
    As far as filters go, you can order a steak or you can order a fillet. This one is a fillet I can assure you. The amount of control you have is amazing. Each time I open this app it guides me through a different sonic terrain.
    By Long words for Version 1.3
  • Simply awesome ★★★★★
    At first it may seem like your average filter until you really understand and utilize what this thing can do. Spend a bit of time and really listen to what you're trying to achieve. It's probably the best ipad filter and I'd put it up against some the filters I use in Ableton and Logic.

  • Planet of the apeSoft ★★★★★
    I feel spoiled! ApeSoft have delivered once again. apeFilter is yet Another incredibly useful and versatile sound design/music production tool. Within seconds of launching this app for the first time, it was evident that I would soon be incorporating it into my production. From hollow, ghostly thin variations on a sound - to gritty, thick, resonant effects, apeFilter facilitates a huge range of useful and novel filtering/EQing. I highly recommend this, and their recent Gliderverb effect, to anyone even remotely interested in sound design and music production. Spoiled, completely spoiled I am.

The graphical interaction provides a great tool to design an extremely precise and smooth frequency response by directly manipulating up to 36 Peaks Filters.
