**A soft synth that filters harmonics?**

Hi

I understand that this might be an extremely silly question, and I apologize beforehand if it is, but I'm quite the opposite of a synth guru, and trying to learn right now, anyway here goes:

Is there a soft synth out there that let's you attenuate a certain harmonic of an oscillators wave? Say where I just get to choose to filter out the fundamental and 5th harmonic, as a completely random example?

I understand that the normal filters work based on frequency and by using some math I could get rid of the fundamental, but what if I need to filter more than one harmonic, and leave harmonics in between them? It also sounds like an awful job calculating all the frequencies if I know particular harmonics that I want to get rid of, is there an easy way?

Ugh....
