Effectrix is a professional multi-effect sequencer for the iPad.

The game-changing tool for creative and effective music production is now available on the App Store: scatter 14 intelligent effects across a sequencer matrix and create unheard-of sound patterns and cheeky loop collages.

A playful workflow, refined algorithms and carefully parameterised effects lead to outstanding results - fast! The effects, each exceeding conventional wisdom, cover a wide spectrum from classy standards to scandalising splatter sprees.

"I never thought I'd use Effectrix on a Beyonce song. Sugar Bytes help to inspire me with limitlessness of sound."

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

Music Radar
"It's hard to wrench yourself from it, and when you do, you'll probably come away with a head full of new ideas."

You name it: Inter-App Audio, AudioBus, Ableton Link, Full MIDI Support (Virtual, Network, Extern, Clock Sync), Audiocopy™ / Audiopaste™. Integrated Audio Player and Recorder (iTunes FileSharing, Music Library, Factory Loops).

Ratings and Reviews

Would be great if it worked in any iOS workflow


No Audiobus, no AUM, so hard to use it other than just fiddling around and seeing ow great it could be if it could be used in a workflow.

Latest update is to fix the lack of Audiobus 3 compatibility - which wold be great, but it hasn’t fixed Audiobus 3 compatibility. I’m still enjoying the “Tap To Fix” message, no matter which app I start first, which room I sit in or what colour of shirt I select.

Brilliant. However...


Easily the best of the Sugar Bytes bunch. Effectrix is capable of some of the most funkiest, twisted warping sound mangling loveliness, but is only let down by a poor implementation of Audiocopy and the file system is a little clunky to say the least. Fix this and Sugar Bytes will have a classic 'must have' iOS app on their hands.

Too hot to touch


Sugar Bytes apps continue to put the sizzle into any track and this one takes it to another level. Effectrix has a clear, intuitive interface and the FX on offer sound fantastic. Comes fully loaded with AB, IAA support and MIDI learn. Ouch, this is hot.
