Effectrix is our most popular product. Sigur Ros, Armin van Buuren, Diplo and many others value its inspiring aspects.
Most of all: it sounds good. Its effects algorithms excel the often limited creative potential of conventional multi-effects.
Thanks to Effectrix, nailing effects to the grid has become a standard production method in all the sound kitchens worldwide.
Each effect has two modulation tracks. All parameters can be controlled and via LFO, envelope follower or external MIDI hardware and automated. Bottom line is: two parameters per effect can be automated pattern-based.
You can store up to 12 different sequences within a single Effectrix preset and flip beween these via onscreen controls or external MIDI keyboard.
Effectrix is the highly addictive games compendium for demanding sound fetishists. With its ultraflexible operational concept, it’s your door into a wonderland of sound- and rhythm mutation.
Use Effectrix to refine your beats, enrich them with scratches or give them further complexity by looping, delaying, or reverberating phrases. Using the "Tonal Delay" you can create melodies out of any material. "Stutter" provides classical gating as well as sequenced panning and enveloping (working out transients).
Effectrix is easily synced with DAWs or any DJ Software, so you can enrich your Mix-out with the classics (Reverb, Delay, Filter...) or sprinkle some Glitch and stutter effects onto your material.
Patterns can also be assigned to any other MIDI input you care to mention and for those with some imagination, the possibilities of such a set-up are remarkably broad: the patterns could be assigned to be triggered by footswitch in performances to spice up the stage show.
Play with grooves like never before. Put a reverb exactly onto the snare, introduce delay lines on certain places in your groove, create new kinds of sounds by relooping looped or scratched stuff. Effectrix comes with an endless depth of possibilities.
Tweak your beats, create new rhythms, reverse parts, stretch others, apply delaylines; even create melodies with atonal material. If you like, do it all at once. Have it your way!

”It's downright addictive, in fact - once you fire it up, it's hard to wrench yourself from it, and when you do, you'll probably come away with a head full of new ideas.”
”I never thought I'd use Effectrix on a Beyonce song. Sugar Bytes help to inspire me with limitlessness of sound.”
”We could easily fill several pages trying to convey the sheer variety on offer, and the capacity the Effectrix has for breathing new life into tired arrangements. Factor in the extensive possibilities it has for live use and the result is a plug-in which, despite some room for improvement, comes highly recommended.”
”A whole new universe of sound design was opened up to us the first time we put it into action, and we think the same will happen for you. Definitely check it out.”
