The App Store description starts with these words:
- Multiband effect processor
- DJ style bands isolator with crossover control
Oh Lal la la la....
I am the worst DJ on earth....
So, what do I do?
I'm not reviewing this App?
At the same time, I also tell myself that I am certainly the worst technical guitarist I know after 35 years of playing guitar every day...
That to make an illusion (to me), I always need to add lots of effects on my guitar, and that when I read the first sentence:
"Multiband effect processor" there is something that tells me that this App may be the app of my dreams...
Yes, when we use a lot of effects like me, the sound can quickly become "messy" so, if with FAC Bandit I can limit an effect to a band (Low, Mid and High) it would be really great!
The dream would be that I could add a delay for example on my high strings (E and B), a Reverb on the mediums (G, D & A) and anothe effect (on the bass (E)...
Wait, I'll be back....
It works! It works!
That's great! That's great!
Watch the demo video below!
That's so cool!
The possibilities are endless!!!!!
FAC Bandit is a multiband audio effect that splits the audio signal into three bands of frequencies defined by adjustable crossover points. Each band is processed independently by its own effect processor and the outputs are then recombined to produce the final effect. Each frequency range is altered with different effects and settings that won't sound the same if applied on the full frequency range. As you have probably realized, FAC Bandit is a wonderful and powerful sound design tool for designers who want to sculpt new personal, exciting and outstanding sounds. Either in a subtle way, without compromising the original tone, or in a more drastic way.
Following the diagram below, the input sound is split into three bands (Low, Mid, High) which are then recombined to the output.
The three band sections provide: an output gain control, a mute/solo toggle and a dynamic fx slot. The crossover, for its part, is available in the second band section. Both the gain and mute/solo parameters can be used as band killer, like in DJ console.
Fx- effect section. On the top there is a menu to select the effect, followed by three controls and a mix control to blend the dry signal with the wet signal. It's also possible to change the algorithms (or the model) to quickly experiment different result with the same parameters configuration. The architecture is extensible and more will come in the future.
Saturation: Tube-like distortion
LOFI: Low resolution character of retro vintage samplers
Ring Modulator: Add inharmonic content to your input signal and get great percussion, metallic or bells sounds
Delay: Tempo based delay, provides depth and ambience
Reverb: Recreate the sonic ambience of rooms and spaces
This App is certainly great for DJs....
I hope that with my video they will be able to see the capabilities and usefulness that FAC Bandit can bring to them...
It is, and I am sure it is great for all sound engineers, sound designers, producers,...
And for people like me, she's the dream!
I'm going to be addicted again....
But I'm lucky, right next to my house, there's a hospital that cures all addictions in 10 days...
A Must Have! A Killer App!
