Designed and built by the collective NOIISE, FLUX:FX is a multi-effect processor app for the iPad, which permits the user to play the effects. Guitar, bass, synth, drums, vocals, DJ setup, violin, basically any audio signal can be processed in real-time by FLUX:FX. Over 18 months in development, and designed in conjunction with musician Adrian Belew for studio and live use, this app boasts that it’s “the pinnacle of touch-screen multi-effects.”
FLUX:FX has 31 effects to choose from, and a wide range of settings to let you twist and sculpt your sound, as well as the ability to chain five effects together for maximum aural impact. FLUX:FX allows you manipulate any audio signal into something entirely new, and redefines the possibilities of audio design and live performance in an app. FLUX:FX is a truly authentic digital platform for designing your sound. Featuring more than 30 modular effects blocks, a master Performance view with 1-touch interaction, an advanced Edit view with multi-touch and full assignment possibilities, and a Sequencer view to bring motion to the audio signal, this app allows the user to easily create previously unheard sounds. Fully compatible with Audiobus, Inter-App Audio and MIDI, FLUX:FX is made to connect seamlessly with existing live rigs and studio workflows.
