The Sound Guy, Inc. announced the release of SFX Machine RT 1.03, a real-time audio effects plug-in. SFX Machine RT is available in VST format for Mac OS 8/9/X and Windows, as well as Audio Unit format for Mac OS X.
SFX Machine RT comes with hundreds of presets, including conventional effects like choruses and flangers as well as a wide variety of unique effects. Many of the presets include a pitch tracker or envelope follower, allowing the effect to respond intelligently to the input signal. The plug-in also allows automated parameter control via a simple "MIDI Learn" interface. A Randomize button enables the user to get an idea of the range of possibilities contained within each preset.
Version 1.03 fixes a number of bugs, including a problem whereby the Randomize button did not work with certain host programs.
