16 high-end algorithms

This model is inspired by the different attempted versions that came out in the ‘80s to recreate complex stereo chorus effects. This gives you the wideness and magic of the ‘80s rock sound.
Based on Solina String Ensemble Keyboard Chorus effect.
This vintage chorus is inspired by the widening chorus effect found in the Solina String Ensemble Keyboard that can fit perfectly also in guitar tones.
Based on Roland RS Series.
This is a very versatile model based on the chorus effect of the RS series of synthesizers by Roland that also became one of the preferred choruses for guitarists all over the world.
Based on Univox™ Uni-Vibe™.
This model offers two working modes: chorus and vibrato. Its legendary chorus mode is a chorus/rotating-speaker simulator that was introduced in 1969. This created a swirling effect quite similar to a rotary speaker cabinet, but with the addition of a continuous speed control.
Based on MXR® Phase 90.
This effect is one of the most popular phase pedals of all times. Used by a wide range of first-class guitarists, this unit can add a little bit of shimmer to your solos or generate a smooth, watery effect while playing chords and muted strumming.
Based on MXR® Phaser 100.
A model of a classic analog phaser that offers 4 different modes characterized by their different intensity and shape.
This model is inspired by one of the most iconic and classic analog phase shift effects heard throughout the 1970s.
Based on fOXX® Foot Phaser.
An early vintage phaser with a unique and distinctive sound. In addition to the standard controls for a phaser, it offers a feedback parameter that lets you change the sound from a smooth phazy to an edgy modulated effect.
Based on Electro-Harmonix® Small Stone.
This effect is a model of a classic analog phase shifter, capable of a range of phaser effects from gentle to outlandish swirling effects. You may wonder why it is called "small" when you hear it.
Based on Electro-Harmonix® Electric Mistress.
This stomp box is a model of a vintage flanger/filter matrix used by many well-known guitarists to achieve classic sounds. While it has amazing warmth, it is also capable of very versatile chorus and ring modulation type sounds.
Based on the doubler mode of the MXR® Flanger Doubler.
Primarily used to thicken in the overall tone of the instrument. Very popular in ‘90s power metal.
Based on MXR® Flanger 117.
A classic flanger reminiscent of the '80s flavor. Still, no flanger is more recognizable, making this perfect for hard-rock and psychedelic clean tones.
This effect is a model of a rotary speaker cabinet. Rotary speaker cabinets create a lush vibrato/chorus effect that adds vibe and a tremendous third dimension to the sound.
A fully customizable tremolo effect that offers controls over the envelope and wave shape of the modulation allowing you to set it from a smooth swell flavor to a percussive effect.
Add programmed rhythmic parts to your power chords and phrases with this powerful and creative beat synced slicing stomp effect. It can be setup to create anything from the most amazing tremolos to the most complex rhythm effects that always stay in perfect sync with the beat.
A powerful and deep beat-synced filter stomp effect. You can apply Low / High and Band pass analog modeled filtering on freely customizable patterns to add groove and rhythmic pulsing to your parts. This will make your guitar and bass parts sound like a rhythmic synth, if you want it!
