***FLUX:FX wins the highest Red Dot international design award - 'best of the best'***
Designed in conjunction with acclaimed musician Adrian Belew, the award-winning FLUX:FX is a professional multi-effect processor app for the iPad that lets you ‘play’ your effects. Innovative, intuitive and exciting, FLUX:FX lets you manipulate your audio signal into something entirely new, and redefines the possibilities of studio sound design and live performance in an app with a massive range of effect options. Guitar, bass, synth, drums, vocals, DJ setup, violin… basically ANY audio signal can be processed in real-time by FLUX:FX.
TRULY CREATIVE EFFECTS: FLUX:FX has 31 studio-quality effects to choose from, and an almost unlimited range of settings to let you twist & sculpt your sound. Chain 5 together for maximum aural impact.
POWERFUL SEQUENCER: A touch-based automation sequencer for your effects that adds a completely new fluid dimension to your sound design.
DEEP EDITING HEAVEN: Every parameter of every effect is editable, assignable and with the fine tuner dial, precise. That makes FLUX:FX a tweaker’s paradise.
TRANSPARENT INTERFACE DESIGN: FLUX:FX has a beautiful, minimalist interface with easy-to-use controls that are MADE to be touched. And swiped, and dragged, and tapped. No fake road-worn pedal graphics or tiny dials here.
MADE BY EXPERTS - conceived and created via the combined talents of guitarist extraordinaire Adrian Belew, audio software developers ElephantCandy and mobile specialists MOBGEN.
PLAYS WITH EVERYTHING - Audiobus compatibility (including saved states), Inter-App Audio compatibility, MIDI, virtually all the audio interfaces… they just work with FLUX:FX.
COMPLEX SOUND, EASY TO USE - chopping, shaping, crushing and looping – FLUX:FX can take you from subtle modulating echoes through to wrecking-ball destruction, all with a swipe of a finger.
ULTRA LOW LATENCY - FLUX:FX features very low-latency settings to give truly professional performance capabilities.
There are 31 individual effect blocks that come built-in to FLUX:FX, and you can use multiples of the same effect:
• STUTTER LOOP
• REVERSE LOOP
• LOOP SLICE
• SAMPLE SCRATCH
• ULTRA EQ
• KILL EQ

• BANDPASS FILTER
• RESONANT DRONE

Plus a master LIMITER to keep all the sonic chaos in check.
”FLUX:FX makes sounds that I have never heard before from any other piece of equipment. It can truly mangle any signal you put into it… in a good way! I can actually PLAY the effects. This app is just so creatively inspiring & fun to use.” - Adrian Belew: the world’s greatest experimental whammy twang bar, czar rhino, stunt guitarist extraordinaire. With a resume that includes Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, King Crimson, Talking Heads, Paul Simon and Tori Amos, Adrian is famous for pushing the boundaries of the guitar in both technical and tonal exploration.
"It's really awesome, and the SFX and way to automate things is splendid. I love the GUI too, very nicely laid out." - Richard Devine: producer, sound designer, film & game music composer.

Great but soon to be lost
This is a great effects suite, a little hard for me to quickly understand and navigate the interface, but there are lots of unique sonic possibilities. However no update for two years and still running at 32bit means this app will become obsolete, non functional under system 11, and wiped from the App Store without some attention soon.
Maybe my favorite
Flux fx is emblematic of the reason iOS music is so exciting. It's intuitive, powerful and unique. If you only get a few apps, get audiobus flux and any synth. The manual suggests Animoog and its a dream together. Only complaint is that it's a little cpu hungry but this app makes having an audio interface or a second device worth the price.
I was a little bit weary of the price at first, but after taking the plunge I probably won't need any other fx for ios. The quality is top notch, and combinations can create really wild sounds. I love to run drum loops through a wash of different distortions and filters, am getting some really cool sounds and chops.
