As is often the case, there are signature Sugar Bytes elements that appear in many of their products, perhaps the most notable being their 'vowel filter'. These filters make an appearance in some shape or form in five of the six products under review here. The main difference between them lies in how these effects are used. Clicking on the name of an effect brings up its parameters for editing, while you can also bypass effects or empty their lanes with single clicks.

But how hard is it to have say 5 or 8 audio tracks with whatever effects you desire on each of them and manually cutting the audio and placing them on a specific fx track?
That's basically what the plugin does no?? I was lookin into tryin this plugin out but then thought to myself that I could just do this manually Plus it would be better cuz I get full control of where I want a certain effect to take place If I'm missing something please do share.
The demo is more than enough to persuade or dissuade you. The big advantage of Effectrix over the manual approach, is how the effects are laid out in a sequencer. Also, some of the effects can't even be reproduced in Live without a third party VST anyway as far as real-time effects go, that is - you can always resample and stretch or reverse, but Effectrix does this on the fly.
You should also look into Artillery 2 also from Sugar Bytes , which lets you play the effects with your keyboard; all you have to do is arm a midi track, and pass on the midi to Artillery, as opposed to mapping a dummy clip to a midi note. Speaking of which: If you want to do this manually, I guess you need to look into dummy clips. By the way; I found a very nice way of using Artillery recently, which basically uses an instrument rack with an external instrument on each chain to send midi to Artillery, which lets me collapse the MIDI clips on the track with the instrument rack, and presto, I have my own Effectrix style sequencer, and even more versatile than the original!
Now I can program the effects meticulously, as well as play them with the keyboard. Latest track. Funk N. Furter wrote: Post properly. I started with the audio editing method I think there are some good Tom Cosm tutorials on this.
Effectrix lets you do this, and has some pretty nice effects to boot IMO. I actually started the M4L project I detailed above because I liked the Effectrix concept but wanted to be able to insert in my own effects. I am now looking forward to giving Artillery a try as well Also very light on cpu and can also be great as just a standard effects unit for the bread and butter stuff.
The only thing is that to use the keyboard function, you need to use another track for Artillery's midi notes. Unless you use Kore and then you can actually use midi from the same track for both a midi instrument and Artillery by keysplit, which is cool, and still have audio going from the instrument to Artillery.
Effectrix on the other hand is cool because the pattern switcher, which can be triggered by midi notes the little keyboard graphic , can also be changed by a single control, available to automation.
This is like having 12 effects racks in parallel with different combinations of effects on each and having a macro knob to switch between them. Except with Effectrix you don't need to duplicate effect devices between chains. I also think the single window with the effect sequences is pretty handy to see everything that's going on, as opposed to many different clip envelope views.
