Native Instruments has released Effects Series – Mod Pack, which takes three classic modulation effects – chorus, flanger, and phaser – and adds new features to give each effect its own unique twist. Each offers new creative possibilities, plus convincing vintage-sounding results, making Mod Pack an essential upgrade from the modulation effects found in DAWs, say NI.
Mod Pack consists of three VST/AU/AAX plug-ins: A flanger called Flair, a chorus called Choral, and a phaser called Phasis. Phasis was made available for free until January 30 as part of the Native Instruments Holiday campaign, and all Phasis owners can enjoy a significant upgrade discount on the price of Mod Pack.
Flair turns the classic flanger on its head. Rather than simply recreating vintage analog tape and pedal flanging effects Flair adds a new Voices mode which uses multiple delay lines to create tuned harmonic flanging layers and resonances. It even features 24 chord settings, offering a variety of chords and note intervals.
Choral takes sonic inspiration from some of the most prized chorus, ensemble, and unison effects of the last 40 years. Add width, movement, sheen, and shimmer to any signal, or take advantage of an all-new feedback mode, Scatter, which creates an entirely new reverb-like effect.
Phasis offers timeless phasing sounds – adding movement, soul, and creative magic to any signal. Phasis draws inspiration from classic phasers but adds new features for some original results. For example, the Spread control changes the spacing of the phaser's notches, for vocal-style effects. Ultra mode pushes modulation to ultra high rates, producing unique FM-esque tones.
