Like most things, it's a matter of taste - I personally think the fruity
filters are great...

I presume you mean something like DaftPunk "Around the World" (where the
high fequencies are suppressed, so
the sound starts "dull" and gradually brightens? Try this:
1. Put the FruityFilter into an insert FX channel
2. Set resonance, band pass and high pass to 0, low pass to max, x2 to ON
3. Right click "cutoff freq" and select "Edit Events"
4. Draw on the graph a gradually increasing upward slope
Play the pattern and adjust to taste.

Alternately...
1. Put the Fruity Free Filter on an insert FX channel
2. Set type=Low Pass, Q to Max, gain=4db
3. This time, right click the Freq and select "Edit Events"
4. Again, draw an upward slope
This has a slightly different tonal flavour, you may need to combine it with
a limiter/peak controller to avoid clipping...

>What frequencies to cut/open up?
>Over what period for maximum affect?

Whatever your artistic demands require!  :-)

Hope this helps!
