rf Music has released Destroyer 2, a multi-fx plug-in for Windows.
Destroyer 2 is a collection of 14 effect modules, including dynamic, distortion, time based, filter and modulation effects, as well as sample and bit rate reduction, stereo controls, and a custom made cabinet simulator, combined into a single plugin with a flexible signal routing algorithm and an easy to use all in one page interface.
Destroyer 2 can be used to create a vast range of effects from slight enhancements in color and dynamics to more extreme and experimental sound designs, or even simulating a fairly realistic guitar amp.
Destroyer 2 for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for $45 USD.
Exponential Audio has announced Excalibur, the “most powerful and flexible effects plug-in you can find”.
Combining delay, flanger, pitch, distortion and more into a powerful modular architecture, Excalibur gives you millions of combinations.
During development our testers and previewers have honoured us by comparing Excalibur to many classic studio effects units, we’ll let you decide which ones when you hear it. We think emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units.
We asked those who got to preview Excalibur how they would describe it, they said:
“An audio processing Swiss Army knife.”
”Multi effects box of days past.
”The most extensive Multi-FX, all- in-one plug-in available.”
”A Sound designers multi-FX unit.”
Imagine a multi-effects unit that works like a modular synth and you’re starting to get close to the heart of Excalibur.
Its modular architecture allows you to assemble millions of effects, configured in ways you’ve only been able to imagine.
“Emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units”
The plug-in will be available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) in Spring 2015 at an introductory price (regular $199 USD).
Fingerlab has announced the release of DFX, a powerful real-time quad multi-effects processor for iPad.
We are curious. We like new experiences. We welcome unexpected discoveries. And… we are musicians. It was an obvious choice for us to develop for the iPad the multi-effects that we wanted, that we needed for our thirst for sound. Four powerful and multipurpose chained effects, driven by trackpads for fast and easy sonic explorations. Like a million of pedal boards on a device.
Plug in any audio source, a guitar, a bass, a microphone, a DJ mixer. Or play your favorite iOS synth or drum machine with Audiobus or Apple Inter-App Audio. Or why not playing a track from your iTunes Music Library. Select one, two, three or four effects amongst 35 hi-quality digital audio effects and explore endless sonic possibilities. Delays, echos, reverbs, filters, tremolo, autowah, compressors, distortions, vocoders, resonators, etc… more possibilities that you can imagine.
At last, but not least, DFX is also a great little sound design machine. Just select one of the built-in tone synthesizers on the first effect and let your imagination build new sound landscapes at the tip of your fingers. We have had a lot fun making ours in the Factory presets. No in-apps, no ads, no fuss. DFX is simple, intuitive and fun. No user guide required ;^)
The app is available for purchase for $1.99 USD for a limited time (50% off regular).

Glitchmachines has announced the release of Convex, a multi-effects processor designed to facilitate the creation of contorted artifacts, syncopated patterns and skewed digital textures.
Based around three classic effects; multimode filter, pitch shifter and delay, Convex generates dynamic variations of the input signal by morphing between two instances of each effect and modulating their key parameters using an extensive array of control modules.
Driving its core are 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync and 2 envelope followers which can have their output inverted or combined using mixers and multipliers. Convex features 100 factory presets from Ivo Ivanov, Thomas Hennebert, Nicholas Yochum, Daed and Subjex. From mellow dub delays to mind-blowing glitch sequences, Convex will bring a broad range of exciting effects to your audio arsenal.
