Armin van Buuren
"A three-band EQ, sometimes the Effectrix... and a whole tube of glue, that's all I need to put together ASOT."

Music Radar

Customer Reviews

iPad effects processor I was hoping for!

Really enjoying this one, it's what I was hoping I would find for the iPad, to use it as a specialized effects pedal. Great design choices as far what controls to incorporate. I use it in audiobus, in the effects slot, and slave it with midi. It also works right with an external clock source (computer DAW). Be warned it seems to need an external clock, if used in audiobus. Midibus is a great, standalone midi clock, if you are desperate to use it in this fashion. Doesn't bother me though, because I would always use it with a sequencer or drum machine, something with tempo, they all have midi clock out (except kong Gadget I believe).

Love the effects type choices, useable and weird. Also that there are the different sequences you can make, then pull up with midi notes, so you could sequence longer effects sequences, like for a whole song, from an external sequencer that puts out midi notes. Also like the single automation lane that you can assign in each effect. It seems limited, by only being one parameter, but I like that it isn't bogged down with endless bells and whistles you'd probably never use.

The screen real estate is usable on a full size iPad, unlike some other sugar bytes apps that get way too tiny (Thesys!). I don't find myself hitting the wrong controls.


Things that were never before possible became possible when Effectrix was released (At least, not easily). iOS version is just as sweet.

Great app, when it works, which is almost never

This was a spendy app. When it works it is great...but it usually doesn't. I'm not an idiot, I've read the docs and forums, and using iaa or audiobus with external sync it almost never works. Grrrr. I want to like this app. Get it together, hippies.
