BloXpander is a software plug-ins host originally designed to meet the requirements of musicians and engineers in "live" situations (but it can find a place in the studio as well). Its interface is visually attractive and clear, the construction of projects and the access to prepared instruments and effects is very fast. The plug-ins manipulation is direct (especially when BloXpander is coupled to an external MIDI controller).

Main features:

  • Software host for VST plug-ins.
  • Full featured virtual console:
    • 24 channels.
    • 4 Auxiliary bus + 1 Master bus.
    • 6 inserts per channels (theoretical 174 Instruments / FX slots).
  • Advanced support for external MIDI controllers (lets you control the mixer and plug-ins):
    • Control up to 8 plug-ins (8 parameters each) with just 8 potentiometers + 8 buttons.
    • Displays the controlled targets names on screen.
    • Lightning fast configuration procedure.
    • Mackie Control protocol supported.
  • Advanced routing:
    • Global management of MIDI and Audio streams (MIDI VST Fx supported).
    • Assign the same MIDI input port to several channels (MIDI Split).
    • Assign the same Audio inputs to several channels (Audio Split).
    • Assign any available audio and/or MIDI output or the Master bus to any channel.
    • Pre/Post fader selector (aux sends).
    • Specific routing solutions for "multi out" and "sidechain capable" plug-ins.
    • Audio inputs monitoring.
    • Outputs Solo and Mute functions.
    • Inserts Bypass function.
  • Full screen friendly and fast interface:
    • Designed as the panel of a hardware unit.
    • Touch screen friendly (for critical functionality).
    • No main menu and no massive amount of overlapping windows.
    • Auto-created visual representation of your plug-ins (GUI screenshots).
    • "Drag 'n Drop" your plug-ins and their states from insert to insert (copy / move).
    • Supports multi-screens.
    • Netbook friendly (accepts a resolution of 1024x600 pixels and makes any "large" plug-ins moveable).
  • "Libraries" system:
    • Store and callback a plug-in and its state from one double-click on a large zone.
    • Custom management of your favorite plug-ins and presets.
  • "Sets" and "scenes":
    • Store and callback the complete state of BloXpander ("Scene") from one double-click.
    • Organize your scenes as "sets" (easy and fast access to what you need during a show).
  • Categorized Plugins library ("The Case").
  • Optimized and secured operations:
    • Analyze your plug-ins compatibility from a stand-alone tool (limits the eventuality of the main application malfunctioning).
    • Fast launching.
  • And more:
    • Tempo adjustment (« Tap tempo » feature).
    • MIDI panic.
    • Plugins transparency.
    • "Shell" plug-ins compliance.
