Figure 307. Alias Factor.Alias Factor combines bit crushing and low pass filtering in a unique way, allowing you to decimate your audio to create tones as varied as vintage samplers, cell phones, or old video games. Decimator effects are nothing new, but Alias Factor generates this effect using a special technique that generates aliasing without the unwanted harsh effects provided by other options, offering sounds that are grainy in a “smooth” and organic way. Alias Factor also allows for further creation of attention grabbing new timbres by linking a low pass resonant filter to the decimator for a new means of tweaking your sound.For more information, see the Alias Factor online Help.Figure 308. Classic Phaser.This is a classic phaser effect that uses a modulating notch filter with a feedback loop. The “Quadra” mode provides extra wide imaging and animation.For more information, see the Classic Phaser online Help.Figure 309. Stereo Compressor/Gate.Stereo Compressor/Gate combines a compressor and a gate into a single effect, so you can increase the overall dynamic level of an audio signal, without distorting the loud parts, and without excessively boosting low-level noise. You can manually trigger the gate via MIDI, which makes it simple to produce stuttering effects.For more information, see the Stereo Compressor/Gate online Help.Figure 310. HF Exciter.HF Exciter lets you enhance the higher end of the frequency spectrum. This produces the psycho-acoustic affect that the signal is brighter and clearer. This is done by adding harmonic content that is not present in the original signal.For more information, see the HF Exciter online Help.Figure 311. Mod Filter.Mod Filter produces a dynamic filtering effect, in that the actual filter can respond to incoming signal or follow the cycle of a tempo-synchronized LFO. The filter itself is a low-pass filter type, which filters out higher frequencies.For more information, see the Mod Filter online Help.Figure 312. Multivoice Chorus/Flanger.Chorus/Flanger lets you add depth and thickness to the signal. The EQ section in the feedback path allows you to create some truly unique sounds.For more information, see the Multivoice Chorus/Flanger online Help.Figure 313. Para-Q.Para-Q is a two-band true parametric EQ that can be used to boost or attenuate generally high or low bands of the signal. It consumes very little processing power, which allows you to use it on many tracks simultaneously.For more information, see the Para-Q online Help.Figure 314. Sonitus fx: EQ.fx:equalizer is a 6-band parametric equalizer with selectable filter types for each band and frequency response graph. Equalizers are instrumental in fine tuning the frequency spectrum in all kinds of music and sound. They let you use different filtering techniques to attenuate, cut or boost a specific frequency or a range of frequencies, allowing you the shape the overall characteristics of the audio signal.For more information, see the Sonitus fx: EQ online Help.Figure 315. Sonitus fx: Reverb.Reverb or reverberation is the effect of resounding echoes in a room or other enclosed acoustic environment. Reverb can be seen as a series of echoes so dense that they can't be told apart from each other. fx:reverb emulates the phenomenon of sound being reflected off walls in a virtual room, and allows you to add reverb that resembles the character, decay and frequency response of various environments.For more information, see the Sonitus fx: Reverb online Help.Figure 316. Tempo Delay.Stereo Delay produces a tempo-synchronized echo on whichever channel it is patched to. The three-band EQ section in the feedback path allows you to create some truly unique sounds.For more information, see the Tempo Delay online Help.Figure 317.
