FLUX:FX by Adrian Belew
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
***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.

”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.

What's New in Version 1.1
FLUX:FX LIVES!!! iOS11? tick! 64bit? YES. Finally! We are really really sorry to everyone that has been waiting, mailing, begging us to update the app... we have learn't the hard way not to promise a delivery date. But yes, it works. Right now we have not answered all the feature updates and small fixes that have been logged, because we just needed to get this build out to ensure everyone could keep using the app to create noiise :)
Great extreme effects
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. Now 64 bit just in time. The one issue is the effects sequencer, although an interesting feature, the record functions are limited and incomprehensible to get it to do what you want.
Doesn’t work with audio bus
Despite claiming to work with audio bus this will not launch properly in audio bus or work with it in anyway. I have spoken with other uses who are experiencing the same issue. I’m using an iPad Pro and ios11. The potential is so close to being very awesome here but it just fails. A very frustrating waste of money but hopefully will be fixed soon and I will change my rating to reflect that when it works as claimed.
After no word about the update, it’s finally HERE!!! Five stars for the app. 2 stars for customer communication. Glad to be using it again. Please improve customer notification.
