It looks brilliant, it is ... Here are all the details ...
FLUX:FX is a professional multi-effect audio processor app for the iPad that lets you ‘play’ your effects. Innovative, intuitive and exciting, FLUX:FX lets you manipulate any audio signal into something entirely new, and redefines the possibilities of audio and live performance in an app with an almost unlimited range of effect options. FLUX:FX is a truly authentic digital platform for next-level sound design. Guitar, bass, synth, drums, vocals, DJ setup, violin… basically ANY audio signal can be processed in real-time by FLUX:FX. Over 18 months in development, this app represents the pinnacle of touch-screen multi-effects, and was designed in conjunction with acclaimed musician Adrian Belew for both studio and live use.
TRULY CREATIVE EFFECTS: FLUX:FX has over 30 studio-quality effects to choose from, and an almost unlimited range of settings to let you twist and sculpt your sound. Chain 5 together for maximum aural impact.
POWERFUL SEQUENCER: A touch-based automation sequencer for your effects that adds a completely new fluid dimension to your sound design.
DEEP EDITING HEAVEN: Every parameter of every effect is editable, assignable and with the fine tuner dial, PRECISE. That makes FLUX:FX a tweaker’s paradise.
TRANSPARENT INTERFACE DESIGN: FLUX:FX has a beautiful, minimalist interface combining easy-to-use controls with a mesmerising liquid polygon audio visualizer. No fake road-worn pedal graphics here.
MADE TO BE TOUCHED - Designed and built from scratch as an iPad app, FLUX:FX is not a port from an existing plugin, it is MADE to be touched. And swiped, and dragged, and tapped. No tiny dials here.
MADE BY EXPERTS - conceived and created via the combined talents of guitarist extraordinaire Adrian Belew, audio software developers ElephantCandy and mobile specialists MOBGEN.
PLAYS WITH EVERYTHING - Audiobus compatibility (including saved states), Inter-App Audio compatibility, super-fast MIDI, virtually all the audio interfaces… they just work with FLUX:FX.

”FLUX:FX makes sounds that I have never heard before from any other piece of equipment. It can truly mangle any signal you put into it… in a good way! The touch controls means that I can actually PLAY the effects - say I’m playing a guitar solo, I’ll lean over and noodle with it and create some wacky guitar sounds. This app is just so creatively inspiring and fun to use.” - Adrian Belew.
