Spark FXMachine is a virtual multi-FX processor and Synth Generator for PC and Mac-based VST Systems, complete with 21 TC-quality FX & Synthesis Plug-Ins. Now PC users can also benefit from the FXMachine's full signal routing power - directly inside their favorite VST audio application.

Formerly, the FXMachine was only available on the Mac sold as a part of Spark. The FXMachine provides users with a new and powerful environment to create unique new effects or modular synthesizers by simply combining them freely in a matrix window. This is done in realtime, using any of the included or other VST Plug-Ins and even Virtual Instruments. The matrix size can be changed from 1x1 to 10x10 according to the user's requirements! The Plug-Ins can be moved around freely and changes can be heard in realtime!

The FX Machine's Plug-Ins include a Modular Virtual Analog Synthesizer complete with Step Sequencer, sound design tools, Reverb and even a mastering quality Compressor/Limiter and Split Filters for multi-band operation. What's more the new SonicDestructor creative Plug-In is available as a free download upon registration and provides a great tool to vinylize or otherwise "dirty-up" audio recordings.

"Plug-Ins have revolutionized FX processing and synthesis by bringing it onto the computer. The FXMachine represents another quantum leap by dramatically simplifying the access to multiple FX -- and for the first time enabling integrated multi-FX and synthesis routings at one press of a key", says Ralf Schluenzen, CEO of TC Works, "Envision it as a completely open signal processor. The included step-sequencer can even help generate complete synth-loops that play in perfect sync!"

The FX machine includes many so-called "machines", providing ready-to-use processors from wild multi-FX to multiband mastering, using only the supplied Plug-Ins.

The Spark FXMachine will be shipping in February 2002. It will be distributed by TC Works' distributors. Recommended retail price: $ 199 US (excluding tax), € 199 (inc. 16% VAT).
