Adding a filter

To add a filter to your source, firstly select the source that you would like to apply a filter, then click the Filters button within the source toolbar.

Filters are generally split between Audio Filters and Effect filters, however the filters available can vary depending on the source selected. Select the effect-filter-plus-icon.png icon, then add your desired filter.
