Klevgrand guitar effects and amps

STARK is a fully fledged amplifier simulator consisting of four modules: Amplifier, Cabinet, Room and effects slots. These modules are processing audio separately, which makes it possible to combine different amplifiers with different cabinets and rooms.

The amp module offers 12 different amplifier profiles. It has both a clean mode and a overdrive mode, an equalizer functionality (including presence), and a booster controlling the end stage amplification saturation.

Cabinet simulation consists of 10 different cabinets of various sizes and sound. This module also offers a stereo width knob that simulates the distance between two microphones put in front of the cone.

Room simulation offers 6 different kinds of rooms, where each room size can be changed between Small, Medium and Large. There’s also a decay parameter controlling reflectivity of the walls and a dry/wet mix.

The pedal board contains 4 slots where any of the 14 effects can be inserted. The order of the pedals can easily be changed using drag and drop.

Full documentation available inside the app or at https://klevgrand.se/downloads/stark-docs/

STARK is an AUv3 plugin that only works in an AUv3 compliant host like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Beatmaker 3, Auria etc.

UPDATE: FLUX FX FOR iOS 11 64 BIT
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

FLUX:FX LIVES!!! iOS11? tick! 64bit? YES. Finally! Dev says they are really really sorry to everyone that was waiting, mailing, begging them to update the app… they have learn’t the hard way not to promise a delivery date. But yes, it works. Right now they have not answered all the feature updates and small fixes that have been logged, because they just needed to get this build out to ensure everyone could keep using the app to create.

Designed in conjunction with acclaimed musician Adrian Belew, the award-winning FLUX:FX is a professional multi-effect processor app for the iPad that lets you ‘play’ your effects. Innovative, intuitive and exciting, FLUX:FX lets you manipulate your audio signal into something entirely new, and redefines the possibilities of studio sound design and live performance in an app with a massive range of effect options. Guitar, bass, synth, drums, vocals, DJ setup, violin… basically ANY audio signal can be processed in real-time by FLUX:FX.

TRULY CREATIVE EFFECTS: FLUX:FX has 31 studio-quality effects to choose from, and an almost unlimited range of settings to let you twist & sculpt your sound. Chain 5 together for maximum aural impact.

POWERFUL SEQUENCER: A touch-based automation sequencer for your effects that adds a completely new fluid dimension to your sound design.

DEEP EDITING HEAVEN: Every parameter of every effect is editable, assignable and with the fine tuner dial, precise. That makes FLUX:FX a tweaker’s paradise.

TRANSPARENT INTERFACE DESIGN: FLUX:FX has a beautiful, minimalist interface with easy-to-use controls that are MADE to be touched. And swiped, and dragged, and tapped. No fake road-worn pedal graphics or tiny dials here.

MADE BY EXPERTS – conceived and created via the combined talents of guitarist extraordinaire Adrian Belew, audio software developers ElephantCandy and mobile specialists MOBGEN.

PLAYS WITH EVERYTHING – Audiobus compatibility (including saved states), Inter-App Audio compatibility, MIDI, virtually all the audio interfaces… they just work with FLUX:FX.

COMPLEX SOUND, EASY TO USE – chopping, shaping, crushing and looping – FLUX:FX can take you from subtle modulating echoes through to wrecking-ball destruction, all with a swipe of a finger.

ULTRA LOW LATENCY – FLUX:FX features very low-latency settings to give truly professional performance capabilities.

There are 31 individual effect blocks that come built-in to FLUX:FX, and you can use multiples of the same effect:

• OVERDRIVE
• DISTORTION
• FUZZ
• BITCRUSH
• DESTROY
• DECIMATE
• STUTTER LOOP
• REVERSE LOOP
• LOOP SLICE
• SEGMENT
• SAMPLE SCRATCH
• COMPRESS
• PUMP
• ULTRA EQ
• KILL EQ
• LOWPASS FILTER
• HIGHPASS FILTER
• BANDPASS FILTER
• CHORUS
• FLANGE
• PHASE
• RESONANT DRONE
• PITCH DELAY
• OCTAVE SHIFT
• RING MODULATE
• AUTO PAN
• DIGITAL DELAY
• BINAURAL DELAY
• TAPE ECHO
• SCATTER VERB
• DELAY/REVERB
Plus a master LIMITER to keep all the sonic chaos in check.

”FLUX:FX makes sounds that I have never heard before from any other piece of equipment. It can truly mangle any signal you put into it… in a good way! I can actually PLAY the effects. This app is just so creatively inspiring & fun to use.” – Adrian Belew: the world’s greatest experimental whammy twang bar, czar rhino, stunt guitarist extraordinaire. With a resume that includes Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, King Crimson, Talking Heads, Paul Simon and Tori Amos, Adrian is famous for pushing the boundaries of the guitar in both technical and tonal exploration.
