They say that good things come in threes… And they are absolutely right!

After the smashing success of BYOME, Unfiltered Audio is at it again with their latest creation, TRIAD. With the ability to split up the signal into three bands and apply BYOME effects to each band individually, this three-headed beast will put the rest of your plugins to shame.

TRIAD takes the huge possibilities of its single-band predecessor BYOME and brings a new level of control to the myriad onboard effects. In a nutshell, TRIAD is a three-band frequency splitter capable of processing the low, mid, and high frequencies with different effect rows. From multi-band compression to frequency dependent reverb, complex distortions to intricate delays, pitch shifting and a variety of modulation based effects, all of this and much is now a breeze to setup and control.

Even without adding any of the effects, TRIAD can be used a “flat-sum” frequency splitter with adjustable cutoff points. An awesome looking FFT visualizer displays the signal and allows for precise control over the band amplitudes and cutoffs on the fly. Well-crafted tools like 'Auto Cutoff' and 'Unity Gain' will keep the frequency distribution balanced between the bands, or even adjust the amplitude ratio without changing the overall volume. Need to hear something more critically? You can easily solo or mute out any of the individual bands with one click.

Furthermore, you can change the frequency splitting into a number of other threefold processors: Parallel + Serial, Mid-Side, Left-Right, and more. Many modes have a flexible Pre/Post row that can quickly swap positions from the start of the chain to the end, quickly turning the tables on your patch for rapid sound design workflows.

Speaking of rapid workflows, TRIAD features a unique “Permutation” engine that rotates the function of each active band. Do you have an awesome delay setup on your mid-band, but would rather hear it on your high-band? Simply click the Permutation arrows to hear it without destroying the rest of your preset. Many dedicated presets have been created by master artists and sound designers to showcase TRIAD's unique capabilities, from workhorse frequency splitting to the most advanced mid-side processor around.

Taking Unfiltered Audio's "Build Your Own Modular Effect" (BYOME) technology to new heights, TRIAD combines state of the art processing, versatile modulation, and dozens of powerful effects with a limitless multi-band workflow! With all the power of BYOME now in three dimensions, pick up TRIAD today to unleash the power of unrivaled multi-band processing.


  • Flat-Sum Frequency Splitter with adjustable per-band gain automatically routed to multiple BYOME effect rows
  • Mid-Side, Left-Right, and Parallel modes are also included for maximum effect routing possibilities
  • Quick workflow features: permutate, per-row load/save/copy/paste, and an interactive visualizer
  • Dynamic Spectral Snap feature allows automatic frequency cutoff balancing- the first such effect in the industry
  • Individual low/mid/high band outputs are available in most DAWs, meaning that Triad can be used as a fully routable splitter
  • Variable slope allows you to change from smooth band transitions to razor sharp cutoffs (12dB to 72dB per octave)
  • Loads all BYOME presets
