Exponential Audio has released Excalibur, a powerful multi-effects plugin for Mac & Windows.
Excalibur combines delay, flange, distortion, pitch shift, resonators, reverb and other effects into a powerful routing and modulation architecture.
Here’s an intro video from Exponential Audio founder Michael Carnes on why he wanted to create Excalibur:
Here’s what they have to say about Excalibur:
There’s nothing like Excalibur. It’s the plugin that creates whole new worlds. Need a classical delay unit with feedback and EQ? Need to sync it to tempo? It’s right here. Need a chorus to fatten an instrumental part? Or a flanger that goes from mild to wild? That’s all in Excalibur. Maybe you need a distorter. Or pitch shifter. Need to do bit reduction to model an old processor? How about a resonant filter for ‘wah’ effects? Or a resonator for truly spooky worlds? Maybe a little reverb? Or a phaser? This is the place.
These are all great effects all by themselves. But the real power of Excalibur is the way effects can be combined and modulated. There are 4 signal chains (called Voices) that can be treated independently or looped through one another. Most parameters can be modulated from a huge list of modulators–LFOs, input/output levels, soft controls on the GUI–to make effects that are dynamic. They respond to the signal. They respond to tempo.
Formats: AAX 32/64, RTAS, VST 32/64, VST3 32/64, Audio Units 32/64.
