reFX has released FX and Halloween expansion libraries for its Nexus2 rompler synthesizer for Windows and Mac.
With FX, Nexus provides sound effects, the essence of modern productions! 150+ state-of-the-art effect presets by Manuel Schleis. Great for electronic music genres, plus movie FX and trailers. Complex sounds with easy user controls. Try out the up/down lifters, impact hits, booms, drones, atmospheres, swooshes, slides, fx loops and arps. This is a great, all-inclusive package!
Halloween — Bats, Cats, Mad scientists and even the Count himself make an appearance in this free mini-expansion for all Nexus2 customers. You can find it in your purchase-history along the required 2.4.0 update. Happy Halloween.
reFX has also updated Nexus2 to version 2.4.0, including faster loading times.
Changes in Nexus v2.4.0
- Most presets load about twice as fast now! If you have a fast SSD, loading times are mostly instantenous, even with bigger presets.
- The mix-page had to be changed slightly. The oscillators are now on their own tab to make room for four additional layers (for a total of eight now) and four additional oscillators (also a total of eight now). Future exansions will utilize this. The free “Halloween”-Expansion already does this!
- The support-file now detects Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 correctly.
- Re-enabled the Live section. From now on updates are downloaded again.
- Removed invisible, but audible, MIDI-CC #7 and CC #11. A few users unintentionally used these and thus changed the output-volume.
- Fixed: Arp-glide was sometimes unintentionally enabled for some sequences at certain speeds and tempo.
- Fixed: The reverb would flutter very lightly under very specific circumstances and only with VERY low frequencies.
- Fixed: Minor bug-fixes and optimizations.
Nexus2 is available to purchase for 249 EUR. The FX expansion is 55 EUR, the Halloween expansion can be downloaded at no charge.
