Astralis FX is based on the effects section of the the Homegrown Sounds' Astralis range of synthesizers and offers a world of sound transformation, ranging from lush pads to industrial destruction. The effects in Astralis synths play a large part in shaping their sound, the idea with Astralis FX is that the same can be applied to any live sound source sent through the plugin such as drumloops or Guitars etc. It also includes a Modulation Sequencer and Programmable Gapper for creating tempo-based rhythm effects. It can be used as an insert or send and the effects can be used in 127 different possible routings.
