voltage controlled filter (VCF)

A voltage controlled filter(VCF) is a filter, usually a low-pass filter, which can change its characteristic properties via a control voltage.

The changes of the characteristic properties primarily concern the cut-off frequency and thus the bandwidth of the filter, as well as the quality factor and the slope. The latter can often be changed variably. Such filters are mainly used in synthesizers and in sound synthesis, furthermore in industrial electronics.
