Peaking Filter Node

Standard peaking filter Node, frequencies inside a specific frequency range get a boost or an attenuation, and frequencies outside it are unchanged.

In other words, this Node can be used to increase or decrease the gain (or volume) only for a specific range of frequencies (e.g. to lower the volume around 1 kHz).


AudioThe Audio line to which the filter is applied.
Frequency-controlA Control input to automate the Frequency setting, in Hz, from 10 Hz to the Nyquist frequency. This input can be toggled from the Node settings panel.
Q-controlA Control input to automate the Q setting, from 0.0001 to 1000. This input can be toggled from the Node settings panel.
Gain-controlA Control input to automate the Gain setting, in dB, from -40 dB to 40 dB. This input can be toggled from the Node settings panel.


FrequencySets the middle of the frequency range getting a boost or an attenuation.
QSets the width of the frequency band. The greater the Q value, the smaller the frequency band.
GainSets the boost to be applied, in dB. If set to a negative value, an attenuation is applied.
Filter orderRepresents the order of the differential equation describing the filter. In other words, this essentially sets how many times the filter is applied.


AudioThe filtered Audio.

Audio and Control lines (visualized with blue and purple, respectively) are both analogous to an analog signal. They can be used interchangeably, and, for example, an Audio output (blue) can be connected to a Control input (purple), or vice-versa.

Technical details

This Node and has exactly 2 samples of latency (equals ~0.0045 milliseconds at 44.1 kHz).
