Rack em and Stack em… One Knob at a time…
Animus Invidious brings the latest set of 64 single-knob effects racks each designed for a specific purpose, ranging from performance effects to mixing tools.
Each One-Knob Wonder effect rack has just a single macro control. Simply twist the knob to find the ideal position for the desired purpose, and always feel free to automate for added suave and precision. Generally, the effects are disabled (100% dry) at their default position.
Grouped into folders which give a clue as to their purpose you can group and rack each effect for a go to set of audio effects per track or on returns, don’t just take our word for it though, check out the Soundcloud demos at the bottom of the page!
