Sugar Bytes Effectrix Lets You Loop It, Scratch It, Crush It, Stretch It

This video, via Sugar Bytes, demonstrates the capabilities of Effectrix, an advanced effects sequencer.

Sugar Bytes describes Effectrix as “as a musical instrument with lots of possibilities for different expressions of existing material. Sounds of any kind can be transformed to exciting beat structures and soundscapes.”

Effectrix lets you do advanced looping –  loops can also be scratched, stretched, reversed or modulated in loopsize and pitch.

Effectrix retails for Price: 99€ / 129$.

  1. Effectrix and Artillery are different, yet fresh, approaches to many of the same effects. The whole notion of playing effects as an instrument astounds me; effects are integral parts of sound design now, not just "icing on the cake". (Which is a far cry from limited hardware workstations.)

    I went with Artillery because I found it more flexible, but I like the convenient, paint-in step sequencer that Effectrix has to insert multi-FX — so I may consider it for a future purchase. (It hasn't been as easy painting Ableton Live clips, if only Live had an overdub mode that didn't overwrite sustained notes!)

    Seems like from various references, Sugar Bytes are stepping up the strike vs. comparisons to Native Instruments' The Finger (via Exile).

    This is a groovy track being jammed with, reminds me strongly of Justice and Phonat with more stutterage. 🙂
