How to Filter the Vocals in Mixcraft

Filtering a vocal track removes certain frequencies from the vocal. Acoustica's Mixcraft audio production program includes three filters: a high-pass filter, a low-pass filter and a resonant filter. Use the low-pass filter to remove high-frequency sounds -- like tape hiss -- from a vocal recording; apply the high-pass filter to remove low frequencies that can conflict with the drums and the bass. Use Mixcraft's auto-filter to add a more drastic filtering effect to the vocals in a song.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch Mixcraft. Click "Browse" in the pop-up window, then click on the Mixcraft project containing the vocals you want to filter. Click "Open."

  2. 2

    Click on the first vocal clip on the vocal track. Click the "Clip Volume" drop-down menu at the top of the window.

  3. 3

    Click "Low Pass Cutoff" if you want to filter out the high frequencies in the vocal. Click and drag the filter cut-off markers that appear on the vocal clips to change the frequency at which the filter activates. Select "Low Pass Resonance" from the drop-down menu and drag the resonance markers upward to amplify the frequencies around the filter cut-off point. Repeat the process for any other clips on the vocal track.

  4. 4

    Select "High Pass Cutoff" from the drop-down menu to filter out the lower frequencies from the vocal. Adjust the cut-off points that appear on the clip, then select "High Pass Resonance" from the menu and adjust the resonance points. Repeat the process for any other vocal clips.

  5. 5

    Click the "FX" button on the vocal track if you want to apply the auto-filter to the vocals. Click "Select an Effect" in the pop-up window, then click "Classic Auto-Filter." Select a preset from the "Preset" drop-down menu. If you want to fine-tune the filter, click the "Edit" button, then adjust the auto-filter's "Type," "Freq," "Reson," and "LFO" controls as desired. Click the "Play" button to listen to the filtered vocal.
