In many other dj software, there are alternate effects that can be selected for the Filter control such as noise (like wind), bit crusher, flanger/phaser, gating/panning, and more. Usually there’s a small drop menu near the Filter knob in the interface for quickly selecting an alternate effect (Filter remains the default).
It works by 12 o’clock position of the Filter knob is zero effect. Turning clockwise adds more or higher pitch effect (noise gets louder and increases in freq) while turning counterclockwise gets louder while reducing pitch or other deepening of the sound effect.
I use this a lot with noise to add a big sweeping whooshing sound to build up to drops or as a wash of noise to cover a transition between songs that would otherwise clash. Having a variable knob allows precise control over the amount and length of effect so building up to the right amount over beats or measures before a drop is simple.
