RE4ORM’s XY Effects

RE4ORM’s XY Effects

RE4ORM’s four XY Effects give you additional control over the timbre of your sound and also add the element of real-time control. Each of the four XY Effects are in an XY Pad configuration with a joystick handle in the middle. You can grab this handle and move it to hear how it changes your sound. You can also assign these movements to an external MIDI controller and automate them in your DAW projects.

Overdrive

The Overdrive effect is a type of distortion. It generates additional harmonic partials which can add a nice edge to your sound. The effect can be subtle, adding a bit of gain and brightness to your sound, or very prominent, adding full distortion the more notes you play. There are two controls for the Overdrive, the Amount or distortion depth (vertical axis) and the wet/dry Mix (horizontal axis).

Phaser

The Phaser process is a classic effect which uses a series of allpass filters to sweep the phase of frequencies across the audio spectrum, creating a phasing of your sound. The Phaser is one way to add some movement to your sound. The two controls for the Phaser are Feedback, which will make the effect more or less obvious, and Speed which controls how fast the phaser sweeps are.

Chorus

The Chorus process is another classic effect. Use the Chorus if you want a thicker sound. The two controls for the Chorus are Depth and Speed. The Depth control will make the Chorus effect more or less prominent and the speed control sets the rate of pitch modulation.

Pipe Model

The Pipe Model effect uses a modeling algorithm that simulates the sound of a large tube or pipe. The effect can be sometimes eerie, sometimes unpredictable, but always unique. Use this effect to change the timbre of your sound or to add a pitched resonance to your sound. The two controls are wet/dry mix and pitch.
