The World of Effectrix2
Effectrix2's cutting-edge effects algorithms transcend the confines of traditional multi-effects, unlocking new horizons for your soundscapes. Refine your beats, infuse them with captivating scratches, and add complexity through looping, delaying, or reverberating phrases.
Unleash melodic potential, sculpt transients and create intricate rhythmic patterns with a fine selection of effects: Looper, Grain, Ring, Vinyl, Spectrum, Tonalizer, Crush, Filter, Phaser, Modulation (Chorus or Flanger), Delay, Reverb and Level.
Above all, it delivers exceptional sound quality. Its cutting-edge effects algorithms surpass the creative limitations often associated with traditional multi-effects.
Power Beyond Superficial Beauty
With an abundance of inspiring factory presets and randomizers, coupled with the familiar sequencer structure, it effortlessly channels and amplifies your artistic vision. Effectrix2 features a transparent workflow, refined algorithms, and meticulously implemented effect parameters which empower you to craft your unique sound signature in minutes.
Modulate any available effect parameter and create different values for each step. The various adjustable modulation possibilities enable a quick and easy selection of a range of distinctive movements. The signal routing of the effects is dynamic and can be changed to get the most flexibility.
Twist, manipulate, and morph your audio with just a few clicks and witness your ideas come to life.
Effectrix2 offers a wide range of modulators which can be applied per step. This results in endless possibilities to create vivid soundscapes. The most straight forward modulator is From To. The modulation will start with your parameter value and then transition to the target value.
With the Step Sequencer, you can easily create a modulation per step, turn up the smooth parameter to have a seamless transition. The Envelope Follower directly relates to the power of your audio signal, this allows to create very sound dependent effect variety. The most common use case is the cutoff frequency, reacting to your input amplitude.
Then we have classical LFOs to create rhythmic and repeating patterns to perfectly fit to the speed of your project. The Steptrain is a special variant of the Step Sequencer allowing to create stunning stutter effects when connected to the volume parameter. But of course it can be used on any parameter to create interesting results.
Precision and Artful Surprises
Experience the power of advanced mix blending modes to seamlessly merge and shape your audio elements like never before. With intelligent randomization options woven throughout, serendipity becomes your greatest collaborator.
In Effectrix2 you can randomize the whole pattern, a single effect track or the setup of the effect parameters. We implemented 3 intensity levels of randomization, so random results can range from very subtle to total mayhem. Of course we also have a random modulator you can use for parameter control. With tempo and smoothness you have detailed control over how a randomized parameter will behave.
Effectrix is known for its stunning looping effects. With Effectrix2 we extended its capabilities. Looper A and B are packed with state-of-the-art features to bring audio looping to a new level. Apply swing to your loop, define a repeat pattern or gradually change the pitch or size of the loop - the possibilities are endless. Try out presets from the looping category to realize its full potential.
Step into the Spotlight
Effectrix2 offers both, inspiration in the studio and an intuitive tool for jamming and live performance. Transform your tracks in real time and on the fly without any latency or time-consuming editing. Store up to 12 different sequencer setups within a single preset and trigger these via MIDI or host automation.
If you’re feeling low on inspiration, which will be hard to feel with this plugin, you can resort to any of the hundreds of global and effect presets to get your perfect sound.
