FLUX:FX - the award-winning audio effects app from Adrian Belew


What is FLUX:FX?

So… what is FLUX:FX?

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 designing your sound. Winner of the ANR Sonic Joy award for best iOS effects, an FWA mobile design award and the prestigious Red-Dot 'best of the best' 2015 award for design.


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 all just work with FLUX:FX.

Complex sound, easy to use

Chopping, shaping, crushing and looping – FLUX:FX can take you from subtle modulating echoes through to wrecking-ball destruction, all with a swipe of a finger.
