FS Refraktor

An innovative twist on modulated delay effects.

Concept

Modulation of effect parameters is a great way to animate your sounds, adding interest and complexity. Typically, we'd use LFOs for this but we wanted to take this a step further, generating all kinds of modulation patterns on the fly.

Product

FS Refraktor is an innovative twist on modulated delay effects. Sitting somewhere between a delay and a flanger, FS Refraktor offers endless possibilities, from rhythmic flanging to chaotic pitch modulation and unpredictable stuttering.

Features

The delay section enables a variety of time based effects from traditional echoes to modulated flange and chorus effects. We combine an LFO with a unique sample and hold based sequencer to generate modulation patterns for the delay. And the filter section shapes the frequency content using a variety of filter types with overdrive.

"I’m loving the sounds that this thing can conjure up. Can go from very light ornamentation, like making the hats a bit more spikey, to full on melodic feedback sequencing as the track rolls on."
