Operating System: Mac OS X
Now you can run the famous FX Designer VST into a standalone rack, the Chameleon. No computer needed!
The main idea behind this soundskin is provide an easy way to create various delay based effects from the basic building blocks: comb and allpass filters. Many audio effects like phaser, chorus, flanger, reverb, delay are made by interconnecting these basic blocks into a network.
For example chorus and flanger can be made by a series of parallel comb filters, phaser is a series of allpass filters and a basic reverb is a combination of 4 parallel comb filters followed by a series of two allpass filters.
But FX Designer is not just for creation of well-known effects that can be implemented standalone much better - it's designed to create new, unheard before effects.
Take an example: With it it's possible to make a reverb that would sound like a room with sizes warping over time in impossible ways.
To create all that variety of the effects FX Designer offers 6 modulated delay lines with comb/allpass mode switch, 6 assignable LFOs and flexible tap signal router that allows you to interconnect taps into a network.
