Effectrix also has a 16 step sequencer with a tempo divider, two modulation tracks, various presets and per effect, unique parameters per effect, copy and paste and chaos buttons, swing feature, recall 12 patterns with MIDI keyboard, and 14 effects from classic to master. All of these features make the system beneficial in many ways because not only is it full of high quality effects, it is easy to use and songs can be made quickly. It is used by professional artists due to its stellar effects algorithms, unique sound design, and quirky approach. A user can simply begin mixing the effects and easily see their work through the use of brightly displayed blocks, representing the various effects that have been inserted. This allows for an abundance of creativity and lots of fun in the process. The sequential modulation means that each effect can have two modulation tracks which can be controlled by LFO, envelope follower or external MIDI hardware. Up to twelve varying sequences can be stored within a single Effectrix preset so the user can go back and forth between the external MIDI keyboard and the on screen controls. It can be synced easily with programs like DAWs and other DJ software as well and patterns can be assigned to any other MIDI input, which could really enhance stage shows. Effectrix makes it easy to create music in so many ways from playing with beats, making unique rhythms, reversing, stretching, scratching, and looping. The possibilities are really quite endless.
