Exponential Audio has announced Excalibur, a powerful new effect plugin combining delay, flanger, pitch, distortion and more into a powerful modular architecture, giving you millions of combinations.
Excalibur: Basic Architecture:
- Four independent voices, with Solo control for quick checks.
- Dynamic interface, with metering that shows you everything that's going on with audio and controls.
- Two inputs per voice (plus a feedback path). Inputs may be chosen from a wide range of sources, including left/right/mono inputs as well as signals from several points in the audio path of other voices. You can easily route one voice into another. There are even built-in noise sources.
- Long delay (2.5 sec) available for each voice. Delay time may be directly selected or tied to tempo. Tempo may be read from the session itself or tapped in.
- Flexible EQ (Lowpass 6dB/12db, Highpass 6dB/12dB, Bandpass or Notch with variable Q. EQ is available on voice output as well as in the feedback path.
- Popover control window for each EQ shows a live display of EQ curve and audio signal. EQ modulation is also displayed in real time.
- Variable diffusion available on each voice. Good for smoothing a signal and creating a more analog sound.
- What you need most is right there on a single page. Deep editing is enabled with quick popover menus.
- Voice effects may be added to each voice. There are many effects available and many to come. Excalibur's internal architecture allows new effects to be created and added to the plugin.
- Effects include:
- Pitch Shifter.
- Ring Modulator.
- and much more
