Exponential Audio on a new modular multi-effect
Exponential Audio will launch this Spring a new multi-effect plug-in based on a modular architecture, called Excalibur.
Excalibur is described as a versatile and flexible plug-in with which you will be able to create new effects on Mac and Windows.
The plug-in will feature four independent voices, each with Solo control, two inputs as well as a feedback path. You can choose the inputs between a wide range of sources (mono/right/left inputs, directly in the signal path or the included noise sources).
Each voice has a long delay of 2.5 seconds, a time that can be adjusted in different ways, such as tempo sync or tap ; an EQ will also be available with 6/12 dB low-pass and high-pass as well as band-pass and Notch filters and a variable Q. An EQ is also available on the output and the feedback path.
Then you can add any of the following effects: chorus, flanger, phaser, ring modulator, 4 resonators, distortion, resonant filter, glide, 80s’ vintage shifter and reverb. These “voice effects” can also be followed by a chorus, flanger or phaser.
Last, but not least, dozens of modulation options are available: LFOs with multiple waveforms, input and output signals, random values, software controls and combinations. A Soft Knob and a Soft Switch allow for modifying parts of a preset in a subtle or radical way.
Excalibur will ship with approximately 500 presets. The VST2/3, AU, RTAS and AAX plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows 32 and 64-bit will have a price of $199. You can already listen to demos and find more details at exponential-audio.squarespace.com.
