Version reviewed: 2.2.0 on Windows

Collection of 21 effects and over 100 presets for them from famous KORG Triton workstation. They are not all effects KORG Triton has. List of effects its not on KORG web site, you need to get demo.

Effects are very good smooth sounding for a very good price.

Included are 4 Band EQ, P6 Ensemble, Tape delay with 4 configurable heads and standard digital delay. It has usable mastering limiter, better then stock one in most DAWs. Multiband limiter is there as well. Compressor is quite basic but has side chain with filter and will do the job. Feedback reverb is there but no gated reverb. Phaser is self resonating and can do interesting effects. Exciter is good, it is used in Triton presets a lot. Included is basic guitar Amp sim with 3 way EQ.

I recommend this to buy as your first cheap effect package if you like smooth sounding effects. Its $25 dollars for 21 effects.

Awesome sound for less than $20. GUI is terribly small though. I think my eyes went worse from trying to see the knobs...

Yess, you are right! Why not have a resizable gui? also for other korg plugins!!.

The MDE-X is a frequently overlooked powerhouse of a multi FX. But giving it a '10' just isn't credible because of the extremely small matchbox of a GUI. An '8' is plenty enough, because the sound is great but the GUI is more or less hopeless.

MDE-X version 2.0.0 has finally arrived. Now almost every instrument in Korg Collection has resizable GUI. I had my doubts about this update ever happening. Glad that it's here. By the way this effects suite sounds really good.
