valp1 is a VA one-pole lowpass filter implemented in ANSI C: using

It's based on the implementation found in the The Art of VA Filter design by Vadim Zavalishin, a engineer of native instruments and creator of Reaktor.

I've uploaded a sample of what it sounds like when you use it to filter noise. Because it's only 1-pole, it sounds an awful lot like gain control.

I've also ported it to a node in . Here's the code used to generate the sound:
