DFX is a powerful real-time Quad Multi-Effects Processor for iPad. With an intuitive and beautiful user interface for easy playability and instant fun.

We are curious. We like new experiences. We welcome unexpected discoveries. And... we are musicians. It was an obvious choice for us to develop for the iPad the multi-effects that we wanted, that we needed for our thirst for sound. Four powerful and multipurpose chained effects, driven by trackpads for fast and easy sonic explorations. Like a million of pedal boards on a device.

Plug in any audio source, a guitar, a bass, a microphone, a DJ mixer. Or play your favorite iOS synth or drum machine with Audiobus or Apple Inter-App Audio. Or why not playing a track from your iTunes Music Library. Select one, two, three or four effects amongst 35 hi-quality digital audio effects and explore endless sonic possibilities. Delays, echos, reverbs, filters, tremolo, autowah, compressors, distortions, vocoders, resonators, etc… more possibilities that you can imagine.

At last, but not least, DFX is also a great little sound design machine. Just select one of the built-in tone synthesizers on the first effect and let your imagination build new sound landscapes at the tip of your fingers. We have had a lot fun making ours in the Factory presets.

No in-apps, no ads, no fuss. DFX is simple, intuitive and fun. No user guide required ;^)

Been looking forward to this one; better than expected in every way

This delivers every bit as much awesomeness as Turnado at a fraction of the cost. Ultra stable, even on older devices. Good job Fingerlab! I have always appreciated the attention given to DM1- it has been awesome watching this app grow over the years. I would anticipate more cool surprises in the future from this one as well. Extra respect for the low asking price. Too many developers overcharge for what usually ends up being mostly unimpressive duds or redundant clones of lack-luster apps. Even a lot of the decent ones often go overboard when it comes to pricing and IAPs. It is nice to see that some developers still get it. Many thanks.

Finally Works!!

Despite my harsh comments in the past about this app not working, I do have to admit that it was out of frustration when a update shortly after the release of DFX would render it useless. But I’m here to say that after an update posted on 5/9/15 has put DFX on the back in business list again! After running it through Audioshare via IAA and testing it with synth apps like Alchemy, Magellan and few others, I’m glad to say it FINALLY WORKS!!

Thanks for the fix but going forward I will not update this app again unless it’s truly necessary.

Love this app

This app is fantastic. It sounds great, and the functionality you get is unbelievable for the price. I had created some very inspiring patches within 30 minutes of buying it. If you're on the fence, definitely get it, especially if you don't already own many effects processors. I like it so much that I wish there was a VST version so I could use it on my desktop in Ableton Live, though I've heard this can be done with studiomux, which I'm definitely going to get so that I can hopefully use DFX on desktop too.
