Author strangest software FX

amnesia









I am interested to know what are the strangest sounding/ unique software FX out there.

I do really like the U-He fx range as they add that little but more to the standard FX

The GRM-tools come to my mind. They were devoleped by the Groupe de Recherches Musicales of the INA. Yes, it's the GRM founded by Pierre Schaeffer in 1951.

Sorry, I could not find a link in English:

I have old versions of the Classics and they're definately powerful tools. I don't use them bcs. I don't like to work with software.

Yes the GRM tools are good

crazy ivan smile
 

scozbor









darkware
 

Babaluma









spectral monkeyage vst.

a lot of the MDA plugins, such as the envelope follower, test tone and sub synth.

anything by russell borogove (pegger/reggep).

I like SoundToys stuff, also have always loved Livecut from Mdsp @ smartelectronix (and its free!!!)

Izotope Stutter Edit is another fun sound mangler Ive been messing with.

Guitar Rig is one hell of a flexible FX unit but due to it's name most people only use it for amp modeling. It has granular effects, pitch shifting, wild delays (tape, and bbd mulations), an IR reverb, and a ton of other stuff. Plus it has freely assignable modulation (lfos, envelopes, sequencers). Such a powerful tool, they should really change the name.

Sound Toys is very cool as well.

If you like U-He stuff but want something a little deeper than Uhbik, both MFM2 and Zebrify (included with Zebra) might suit you.

Fabfilter's Timeless and Volcano are also capable of some really out there effects.

Soundhack's Delay Trio is free.

KYMA.It is great, sounds great but it has more going against it.IMO

I found it to be clunky, the screen would get fucked up at times its gui is old. I didnt like the fact that I had to have a box to use it, if I am in bed and want to make sounds I dont want to go set it up. With imagination I could get close to what I wanted to do by combining other companies programs.

I will look at KYMA again in the future and see if any improvements are made.

Audio Damage has some great stuff.

Definitely worth checking out.

+1 on GRM tools
+1 on Audio Damage

Tom Erbe's Soundhack and Spectral Sound Shapers plugins.

But the *strangest* would have to be Argeïphontes Lyre by Akira Rabelais:

Michael norris fx!!! Free and absolute must have
 

amnesia









Yes Norris are great.

Thanks for the guitar rig info, think it sounds much better then the Waves GTR.

PSP's Nitro and N2O are worth a mention here. Flexible multi-fx structure that supports feedback loops and automation via step sequencers, lfos, envelope followers etc. Somewhat like a TC Electronics Fireworx.

in addition to what's been mentioned,

Artificial Audio's Obelisk:
OBELISK

Fscape (standalone, similar to Soundhack)
FSCAPE

Spear (spectral editor)
SPEAR

iZotope's Spectron looks interesting:
Spectron
 

cbm









No one has mentioned Max/MSP?

My SHORT PLAY EP was completely made via Guitar Rig processed Casio SK-1. (I was using version 3 I believe...)

This should be shouted to the heavens. This is my go-to software effects rack. It's so flexible and powerful and it sounds damn good. So much more than an amp modeller.

I have a friend who has been telling me the same thing for a while now. Maybe they should change the name to effects rig? I'll have to give it a go and start using it. I have a light version that came with sonar.

Scapes by twisted tools churns out some mean shit

Filterscape by U-he

Hyper detailed stuff in max/msp - renoise

That spectral filter from Project5 v1 and cooleditpro Dead Banana

+1 for twisted tools and U-he stuff. MMF2 is just wild.
 

limpmeat









Twisted tools vortex looks pretty cool.

Just noticed they have a few free patches on their site too.
