Exponential Audio has announced the release of Excalibur, a powerful multi-effects plug-in for Windows and Mac.
There’s nothing like Excalibur. It’s the plugin that creates whole new worlds. Need a classical delay unit with feedback and EQ? Need to sync it to tempo? It’s right here. Need a chorus to fatten an instrumental part? Or a flanger that goes from mild to wild? That’s all in Excalibur. Maybe you need a distorter. Or pitch shifter. Need to do bit reduction to model an old processor? How about a resonant filter for ‘wah’ effects? Or a resonator for truly spooky worlds? Maybe a little reverb? Or a phaser? This is the place.
These are all great effects all by themselves. But the real power of Excalibur is the way effects can be combined and modulated. There are 4 signal chains (called Voices) that can be treated independently or looped through one another. Most parameters can be modulated from a huge list of modulators–LFOs, input/output levels, soft controls on the GUI–to make effects that are dynamic. They respond to the signal. They respond to tempo.
Excalibur is deep. But you don’t have to do it all yourself. There are over 500 presets waiting for you. You’ll find autopanners, guitar cabinets, rich flangers, chorused reverbs, telephone futzes, vintage echo effects and much much more. And you don’t have to wait around for your output. With under a millisecond of latency, Excalibur is perfectly at home in a live rack or a studio. It’s powerful, fast and efficient.
Excalibur for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) costs $199 USD. An introductory pricing is available through April 10th, 2015. New packages, bundles and upgrades are also available.
