- two modulator tracks per effect
- Seamless iOS integration: full MIDI, Inter-App Audio, Audiobus

"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).

I’m embarrassed for SugerByte


I would never have believed that SugerByte could do something of the poor of design quality. I really liked what I saw and heard, when it worked on my 1st G iPad Pro on the latest iOS update. It worked stand alone for a day and hasn’t since. With Audiobus 2 it won’t work as an instrument and not everything works as an EFX. It isn’t even a choice as either an instrument nor as an AU unit in AUM, which is what use. Come on folks, these are common sense ‘basic’ features. So basically I burned $18 trusting a name.

Don’t give up..


Dawg, us IOS producers don’t have gross beat to resort to. So we need y’all to COME THRU. SHOW UP. AND SHOW OUT. This app could offer so much more. Can y’all please continue to invest in this?

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.
